Being a volunteer in a VOLUNTEER CAMP
Legambiente is also a member of a wide network of youth volunteer associations called Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organizations which promotes youth mobility and commitment with activities in international volunteer camps. The excellent synergy with its partner organizations allows young Italians to be involved in, for many aspects, educational journeys, developing a prolific cultural and linguistic encounter.
Which types of camps are offered?
The camps can be:
• Nationals (just for Italian volunteers)
• Internationals abroad (participants from all over the world, 2 per association, English speaking)
• International in Italy (2 volunteers per Country).
Everyone can participate at this camps. They are divided by age into teen camps (Under-18) and adults camps (Over-18).
Camps are held throughout the year, although, of course, most of them take place during spring or summer. A list of the camps is published every year in the months of February-March.
Participation requires the payment of a fee, depending on the camp, which can be found on the specific page on the Legambiente national website. The fee includes room and board for the duration of the camp, but not the costs of transport to e from it. The participant must also pay for a membership card of Legambiente for the current year, which provides insurance coverage. The health coverage (in case of abroad camps), complies with the legal standards of the Community citizens, as for any private trip.
For special camps it can be required an extra fee, which will be easily and clearly flagged, with information about its amount and its nature.
Come to our headquarters to get our membership card and show us your interest.
When registered for a camp you will receive from the national office of Legambiente an info sheet with all the logistic and practical information to be fully ready for you camp (things you will need, meeting places, contacts of the camp leader, information about your accommodation and the association that will host you…).
For information on participating in one of the international or national camps you can find us in Valmadrera, via Bovara 1/F. There you can get your membership and start this exciting adventure!
