SCI France organises a heritage workcamp!

Renovate the chapel of Saint Jean

SCI France has many workcamps this summer, we would particularly like to show you a project in partnership with the Maison de la Nature du Sundgau. The association fights for the protection of the environment, and helps the town of Ueberstrass, in Alsace.

Built in the 15th century, the chapel of St-Jean has deteriorated over the years. The volunteers will be trained and supervised by a specialist craftswoman to renovate the chapel in order to make it a place of life for the inhabitants.

Participants in this project will have the opportunity to discuss environmental and heritage issues but also to discover the area through a hike and to visit a large city. They will live a unique experience with other volunteers from all around the world. This exchange will allow them to meet new people, discover new experiences and new cultures.

Ready to go?

? 21 August – 3 September 2022

? Sundgau, France
