My name is Lydia and I am 17 years old and in August 2016, I was in Germany in a small village outside of Berlin called Rangsdorf.
For me it was my second workcamp and i am so excited for all the experiences that i have now!
The work camp was environmental, and our work was to make the big park of Rangsdorf accessible to visitors and comfortable for all. We made a big road in order to reconstruct the old one and connected with a big area for relaxing. We also did small tasks including building benches and a football field at the grass for the children. At the end, we presented our results to the community.
We were living in a school and we had a part of the Rangsdorf's youth club for our activities and our free time!
We made a lot of excursions and activities all together! We went to the Rangsdorf Lake, we had picnics at the nature, we also went a lot of trips to Berlin or Potsdam and every place near our village.
We spent a lot of nights playing games and having multi cultural parties or presentations and skill exchanges! They were teenagers from Germany, Ukraine, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Lithuania, and every one of us had to cook local dishes from each’s country so I managed to try many different dishes.
We had great time together and we had perfect cooperation since the first days! It was amazing!
When the programme came to end I could not believe that the whole three weeks had passed so quickly.
I returned to Greece full of memories and of course the thought that I will be able again next year to do another Workcamp!!! It was an amazing experience!!!!
