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 due to the coronavirus, 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!
You can check the camp descriptions for workcamps organized in Finland from our webpages.
You can apply to the Finnish camps the same way you would apply to a camp abroad in the camp database: register to the database, search for camps in Finland, fill your application and make the payment to KVT. 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 60€ 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.
We are also looking for camp leaders to take care of the group spirit in the camp and we offer places for asylum seekers too. Read more about the different ways to participate in a voluntary workcamp in Finland.
