Voluntary workcamp is a possibility to get to know Finland from a new perspective, meet new people and participate in the activities of a local community. You don’t always need to travel far to gain unforgettable experiences and learn something new.
Because travelling abroad is challenging at the moment for many of us, we decided to open our voluntary workcamps in Finland to everybody who are already residing in Finland. This way we can offer more opportunities for people to volunteer in grassroots peace work!
KVT organizes two voluntary workcamps in the summer of 2020 and they are now open for applications:
Organic Farming at Vanhamäki Centre for Common Good, 12.-26.8.2020, Suonenjoki
Sustainable Food Locally and Globally, 24.8.-8.9.2020, Jokioinen
You can check the camp descriptions from our webpages.
You can apply to the Finnish camps the same way you would apply to a camp abroad in the camp database. When you participate in a Finnish camp as a resident in Finland, you don’t pay the normal camp coordination fee, but a decreased fee of 55€ and the KVT membership fee. You can read more about voluntary workcamps and applications or how to become a KVT member. At the camp all participants are provided with accommodation and food, you just have to organize your travels to the camp.
