Description of Workcamp:

REGION.- Region of Aragуn. Province of Teruel.


Preferably active young adults with an interest in the

environment and a desire to meet new people. Participants should

be communicative, outgoing and interested in learning about

Spanish culture and geography.


Participants in the Calamocha work camp will clean up and tidy

the riverside vegetation and irrigation channels along the River

Jiloca, removing unstable sedimentation and cleaning the river


They will also tidy up and prepare a path linking the Ajutar area

with the Ratero bridge, thereby joining this stretch to the Roman

bridge and creating a very attractive place to take a stroll

throughout the year.

Experts in the relevant fields will be on hand to assist in

replanting certain irrigation channels of particular importance

due to their location, such as the Monjas river, the Ajutar

communal laundry area or the Cangrejera.

The working day for the participants will be from 9:00 am until

2:00 pm, Monday to Saturday. There might be a few days when

participants will work in the afternoon.


To clean up the banks of the River Jiloca in Calamocha.

To make the banks more visually attractive while respecting

native plants.

To improve access to various parts of the river along the

surrounding paths.

To restore sites of historical and cultural interest to be found

along the banks of the River Jiloca.

To promote environmentally friendly habits and participative and

voluntary behaviour in benefit of the community amongst the work

camp participants.

To learn how to use digital cameras, discover the full range of

possibilities they offer and thereby enable the participants to

record for themselves the improvements they make on the river


To learn cardboard and papier-mache restoration techniques in

order to repair cabezudos (traditional large head masks) so they

can be included in the processions of people wearing the masks

during fiestas in the area.

To experience the area’s cultural and artistic heritage through

visits to sites of interest.


Once the working day has ended, participants will be able to

enjoy a period of free time. They will then have time to use the

various municipal facilities, e.g. the sports hall, swimming

pools, the library (with access to the Internet), a youth centre,


On several days of the week there will be workshops organised by

monitors specialising in the subjects being covered:

Cabezudos repair workshop: participants will learn how to repair

local cabezudos under the guidance of a specialist in the

restoration of cardboard and papier-mache objects. Once restored,

the participants will be able to see the cabezudos when they are

paraded around the streets during fiestas. Time permitting,

participants will make a new cabezudo from scratch.

Digital photography workshop. The aim is to enable participants
