A Climate for Peace camp experience can be a life changing event. You might fall in love with your surroundings, the experience of working with a local on community or even the sustainable recipes of the camp. The thoughts and emotions one goes through can set a course for a beautiful exchange with people you may not otherwise get the opportunity to meet. Hands on practical exchanges with fellow volunteers can truly make you see the wonderful side of life.

Soon to be campleaders all over the world are preparing and getting ready for the summer, when hundreds of workcamps will be taking place! Our EVS volunteers at the International Secretariat will have the chance to take part in a workcamp with our Flemish Branch, VIA Belgium. Here, Shane shares the story of his campleader training weekend.

"I arrived at Wereldwerf with 3 others choosing unanimously to walk the last few miles to the site of the VIA Campleader training weekend. Arriving in good time we met and greeted some of the other people we would be sharing this weekend with. After a cup of tea we started off talking and discussing upcoming events for the weekend.
