Лагер в еко-център Влахи

От 4 до 17 юли 2011 г. ще се проведе поредния за последните десетина година лагер в еко-център в село Влахи. В лагера ще има участници от Русия, Германия и Чехия. Всеки, който желае да се включи в лагера, нека да пише на офисния мейл на Си Ви Ес – България cvs-bg@bluelink.net. Доброволците сами организират пътуването си до и от село Влахи, като ще се организира транспорт от Кресна до селото. Освен това се заплаща и застраховка за участниците в размер на 20 лв.  Възможно е и евентуално включване само за някои от дните на лагера, като това трябва предварително да се координира с организаторите от Си Ви Ес – България. А ето и малко повече инфо за лагера от търсачката на Ес Си Ай – www.workcamps.info. Там може да намерите още много други предложения за лагери по цял свят!

Number of volunteers: 10

Description: The project’s aim is to develop further the environmental demonstration and education center – “Nature School – Vlahi” “Nature School – Vlahi” aims to serve as:

• Centre for environmental education for children, pupils, students, organized tourist groups and individual tourists as a form of eco-tourism;

• Information and demonstration center for the sustainable use of natural resources for the local community and tourists;

• Centre for trainings, debate and seminars on topics related to eco-tourism, environment, biodiversity, sustainable development, and renewable energy for NGOs and CBOs

The Eco-center Vlahi project is very well known and during the camp there could be visitors that would like to join our group for a few days.

Type of Work: The main goal for the workcamp is to build a wooden fence for our garden from local materials.This will take most of the camp to complete.

Finally, a smaller task will be the marking of walking paths between Vlahi village and the villages of Stara Kresna and Oshtava in order to promote rural and eco-tourism, as well as to connect us to the mineral baths in Oshtava and Stara Kresna! The work is expected to be hard physical work and will be 6 hours a day

Study Theme: Leisure activities: There will be possibility to visit the hot mineral springs nearby. In the weekend an excursion could be planned – to the nearby mountain peak of Sinanitza or to Rozhen monastery and Melnik, where a wine tasting could be organized for the “connoisseurs”. Another possibility is to make an excursion to Rila Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the workcamp the participants will decide which excursion we will do. The expenses for the excursion should be covered by the participants.

Accommodation: The accommodation will be in tents in the yard or on the wooden floor inside the eco-center. Please bring a tent if you have one. In either case, you will need to bring a sleeping bag and sleeping mat. The participants will rotate cooking for the group (please take some ideas or recipes from your national cuisine). Food will primarily be vegetarian. There is a shower available outside in the garden, the water is heated by solar collectors. It is also possible to take a bath in the river nearby. We use composting toilets which are outdoors. In the kitchen we have a working sink, but this is the only indoor plumbing. Please be prepared for these conditions. They are part of the sustainability of the Eco-center
