Volunteering / Volunteer placements / Volunteer work camps


What is a volunteer work camp? A group of volunteers coming together for a set amount of time i.e. 2 weeks to carry out needed work in the local community.
Care2Travel has a portfolio of possible work camp projects  for all different types of volunteer groups, whether you are team of skilled workers, or just a young group with  lots of motivation .
Our  commitment - never to create a work camp if the local need or want is not there. Our first priority in establishing camps must always stem from the local community. For this reason our work camps change yearly depending on the local need at any given time.

Example work camps
  • Renovating Care homes  or other social buildings: volunteer groups have been involved in both interior renovation projects; from laying floors to changing doors to painting murals on walls, to exterior projects involving outdoor insulation, window installation, painting and garden renovation. Example work schedule.
  • Environmental projects: from participating in hay meadow preservation to helping repair/restore natural mineral springs. A real beauty of Transylvania is its lush Fauna & Flora but with “development” comes a very real risk to the surrounding nature. If you interested in environmental protection and or sustainability and want to make an active difference then contact Care2Travel for further information about what projects are currently available. Example work schedule.
  • Agricultural work: groups can come and volunteer on a local eco-farm, assist the elderly members of the community during harvest time. Example work schedule.
Payment
The price to volunteer on one of our work camps varies from year to year depending on what funding and sponsorship can be obtained and the size and experience of the group wanting to volunteer. We advise volunteers to expect a participation fee of at least €200  for 8 days in Romania which includes the following:
prior communication, pick-up and drop off from arrival destination, accommodation, 3 meals a day during the camp,  in-country management, administration costs and a small donation to the Care2Travel association.

Not included – Travel costs, food and personal allowance.

To understand why we charge to volunteer  please refer to our “Why Pay to volunteer” section.

Duration
From 2 weeks – 2 months

Placement closures

This depends on the chosen work project. Building/outdoor projects are often limited to summer or spring due to the cold temperatures in winter and autumn.
