Study Theme: A team member of the school will give you an interesting insight into the rich history of our school. In the early 20th century, the founders of our school had to flee the Nazis and came to Switzerland. Students of different cultural backgrounds live, learn and grow together in order to increase intercultural understanding. Their educational ideas were radical at that time but some are quite modern, still “progressive”, sustainable, and “hands on”, such as less consumption or a simple but creative “DIY” life style in a tolerant, open and value-based community.
Accommodation: Volunteers will live in simple double rooms with shared toilets and showers. Beds are fully equipped. Volunteers can use the laundry machines. There will be WIFI for volunteers. Volunteers will be responsible for preparing the food. Provided food will be mainly vegetarian.
Language: Common language in the camp will be English. Local language is Swiss German.
