hostile to those who are unfamiliar with them (high altitudes,
tropical forests, deserts or very dry zones, extreme cold or
heat). We believe that this work camp may offer an innovative
contribution in this respect because specialised training actions
do not usually focus on these areas, despite them being so
positive in practice. The activities will be adapted to the
environment where the work camp is located, but work will also be
done on theoretical situations, which will cover all types of
climates and natural settings. The following areas of training
are considered to be fundamental in this respect:
- Mental approach in hostile natural environments.
- Orientation techniques
- Building of a refuge.
- Basic survival techniques. Obtaining, filtering and purifying
water. Improvising methods of making fire, obtaining food.
- Health risks for participants in the environment.
Other physical activities can be done, such as adventure sports.
These may be useful in participants’ future cooperation work:
mountaineering, cliff climbing, kayak, abseiling, walking and
exercises, all to physically prepare participants for working in
rural, natural settings.
Also, cultural activities will be organised in free time, related
to the natural, ethnographic and gastronomic heritage of
Extremadura, and there will be two outings to combine education
