Mini-camp in Doro

Reconstruction work

Last weekend SCI Switzerland organised a short mini-workcamp: seven volunteers from different parts of Switzerland met in the beautiful village of Doro (Ticino), where «Doro´s Meeting centre» (“Zentrum für Begegnung Doro”) is located.

During the weekend (from the 19th of June till the 21st of June), when this mini-camp took place, the volunteers had a chance to learn a bit about the history of the Doro centre, which was founded in the 70-s by a group of young people to create an alternative community, and also take part in the reconstruction work: to work on the stone wall construction and to dig a ditch, where water pipes will be laid.

The last but not the least, they were able to enjoy the beautiful mountain views and share opinions on lots of different topics.
