Description of Workcamp:
REGION.- Region of Valencia. Province of Alicante.
DESCRIPTION OF WORK.- The archaeological site of the Baсos de la
Reina is situated on the coastline, close to the promenade in the
coastal town of Calpe, whose most significant symbol, besides its
beaches, is the massive cliff known as Peсуn de Ifach. This
coastal site contains the origins of the current town, as this
place was populated from the beginnings of the Christian Era to
the 7th century AD. The remains found in 15 archaeological
campaigns has shown that this site was an important commercial
enclave in antiquity.
Both these remains and the area surrounding the archaeological
site need maintenance and preservation work. The main aims of the
next Calpe campus are the cleaning and tidying up of the site for
its future restoration and valorisation. Your help in this task
can be invaluable, and we wish you an agreeable stay in this
emblematic Mediterranean town.
The work will be carried out in small groups which will shift
place and type of work, so that all participants will be able to
work in all places and share the work to be carried out.
Work will take place from Monday to Friday, 4-5 hours a day,
usually in the mornings.
Excursions and visits
Workshops and training and leisure activities, etc.
Evening activities, group dynamics, sports activities, games,
These activities will be coordinated by a team of entertainment
professionals, under the responsibility of the Institut Valenciа
de la Joventut [Valencian Youth Organization], who will live
together and participate at the Workcamp. Their work methodology
will be based on participation, autonomy and responsibility.
The entertainment team will propose a series of entertainment
activities for the group to carry out in their leisure time,
adapted to the characteristics of the surrounding area and of the
participants. Following these specific suggestions, as well as
others from the volunteers, and in order to complement the
volunteers’ work, a calendar of cultural and leisure activities
