  • Description: This is an 10 Anniversary - ijgd - Camp. International ijgd volunteers will do gardening and other work outside the day centre for children - Your help is needed at a municipal childrens day centre, where the grounds are to be modernised and redesigned in a more natural fashion. In co-operation with municipal staff your work will involve creating a large sandpit with a water play area, as well as building a sound garden and climbing wall with a sandpit for soft landings. This work can be physically demanding. In addition, you'll demarcate new play zones and, on the paved area, paint "traffic lanes" and hop scotch squares.
    Krefeld offers a variety of interesting cultural and leisure facilities, and the Lower Rhine region as well as Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf and the Ruhr region are all within easy reach. If you fancy swimming, there is a large open-air pool nearby.
    Accomodation: In the childrens day centre, cooking done by the group. Location: North-Rhine Westphalia; 20 km north-west of Düsseldorf, 60 km north of Cologne. Train station: Krefeld; Airport: Düsseldorf
