Accomodation and food

Accommodation will be in small wooden building. The volunteers will prepare their meals together.

Project hosted by

Foxhill Association maintains old industrial heritage of Kuusankoski and wants to increase community spirit and wellbeing of people by common action. It is a voluntary association preserving the area of wooden buildings where factory workers used to live. The aim is to keep the cultural and natural heritage alive by organising community events, there is e.g. a summer cafe, petting zoo, amateur theatre. This is the second time they host a work camp after a very positive experience last year and the local community is waiting for international volunteers.
