Parum Rectoryis located in a small village in the North of Germany, about forty kilometres south of Rostock and the coast of the Baltic Sea. The village consists almost only of a church, the former rectory, the former church school and two old farmhouses.

The representative rectory, built in 1841, that time as the biggest in the rural areas of whole Northern Germany, is similar to a typical manor house of this period. The original room structure is almost unchanged, and a lot of original details are well preserved, although the house had been mostly abandoned since the 1970ies.

Since several years Open Houses is reconstructing Parum Rectory. The first urgent task was the restoration of the roof construction, what was managed with a consistent level of craftsmanship, using mainly historic wood timber joints. This way Open Houses could preserve an atmosphere, which does not tell the once serious damage.

Behind the rectory a historical park is situated dating back to the 19th century with many old, partly very rare trees.

 

Project Description

The participants will work on the reconstruction, recultivation and maintenance of the historical park which had been abandoned for a long time. This will include cutting trees and bushes, constructing small walls from natural stones, levelling the ground as well as cutting and collecting grass. Furthermore the volunteers will lay out new paths in the park and pave them with stones.

Additionally, some small handcraft works will be carried out like painting a storage house, building new fences in traditional style and constructing benches, possible some handcraft works in the historical rectory will be carried out, too.

Because the large park which originally had extended till the lake is hilly and inaccessible for vehicles every material has to be transported by the volunteers with wheelbarrows. The participants should be aware of physically demanding works.

Organising and leading an international Workcamp is an interesting challenge for those who enjoy working together with young people from all over the world, which are willing to take over a big responsibility and who look forward to a great summer in Germany. The camp leader's role lies in building a bridge between the participants of the Workcamp, the organisation as well as the technical leaders who guide the practical part of the camp. S/he supports the group of volunteers from a social and intercultural point of view.

 

Open Houses is looking for people who are highly motivated and responsible, open minded and which already have some experiences in handling with other people. They should be able to speak English fluently and basics of German.

The main tasks are to organise the social life for all volunteers during the camp period. The leader will welcome the volunteersand make them familiar with the camp site. S/he will prepare the daily schedule, indicating the working and eating times including breaks and will furthermore be responsible for organising the cleaning and cooking teams, alternating within the group. The camp leader will buy the food for the volunteers, having an eye on the everyday changing cooking teams with their individual dishes. Additionally, s/he organises leisure activities after the working days and is welcome to prepare campfires, barbecues, games or other group activities. For the weekends the camp leader should be ready to plan little trips to bigger cities or other activities. A camp leader has rarely time for personal thingsduring the Workcamp. S/he is always the person in charge of everything and contact person in any questions and needs of the volunteers. This should be clear to all applicants.

It is also important that the social leader stays in close contact to the technical leaders, who are organising the working groups and know which work has to be done. It is helpful to support the technical leaders by taking over the responsibility for a working group, if there are no other works to be done for the social leader. At some camps, especially in environmental camps, it can happen that the functions of social and technical leaders are running more together. So it is good to be prepared also to organise a little bit the working part.

The social leader is also responsible for managing the deduction and finances of the camp and to take care of the documentation– writing down what has been done, taking pictures and leading the evaluation of the camp. It is important to do this documentation with a certain care, so that the social leader which will lead the following camp will know what happened in the past and doesn’t need to look for the same information or to do the same mistake a second time.

 

Project Description

The social camp leader has to be able to work independently as well as in a team. Since most of the camps are organised by several camp leaders (one or two social and one or more technical leaders) it is necessary to agree upon several issues in a team.

All in all, leading a camp means a lot of work and empathy as well as a lot of fun. Open Houses gives the camp leaders the opportunity to be creativeand to take over responsibility for their own work. Of course, they will not be left alone in their role.

 

Before getting active as a camp leader s/he will take part in one camp as a volunteer, parallel will be time for the introduction as camp leader.It will be a good experience to be an “ordinary participant” for one or two weeks and to get to know the camp leader's tasks from the participants' point of view. After experiencing the atmosphere of the first camp and after Open Houses and the potential camp leader have gotten to know each other better, Open Houses will decide if s/he will be able to lead camps or not or if s/he would need an additional introduction time.

During the summer season Open Houses organises a lot of Workcamps in different places in Germany. Depending on the camp leader's interests and abilities Open Houses and the potential camp leader will decide together where s/he will lead camps. In general, Open Houses offers two possibilities: The volunteers can lead several successive camps in one place (at Lohra Castle, partly also at Klein Dammerow Manor) or can lead different camps at various places.

 

For each real camp leading week the volunteer gets 50 ? pocket money. S/he does not have to pay for food and accommodation. The camp leader will receive the pocket money after the camp, when all the camp documents will be checked by the office staff and everything will be fine.

Organising and leading an international Workcamp is an interesting challenge for those who enjoy working together with young people from all over the world and which are willing to take over responsibility.

For young and older people more interested in the technical side of the works than in the organisation of the social life Open Houses offers the possibility to support the technical leading of Workcamps and Building Weeks in the framework of Mid Term Volunteering. This could be an interesting task for skilled craftsmen, for those which have own manual experiences or for those which want to train their organisational skills.

 

The leading of the technical side of the Workcamps lies in the hands of one of Open Houses' technical leaders. The volunteer which supports him can overtake a part of the technical leaders' responsibility. Depending on the wishes, the skills and the experience of the volunteer this can be the organisation of the schedule of the working day, the responsibility for tools and material, the leading of a smaller group of volunteers or more special tasks.

 

For students of architecture, building engineering and similar fields this kind of voluntary service can be recognized as internship for their studies. Open Houses will offer the necessary certificates.

Because of the big variety of the individual curricula and experiences Open Houses will create for every volunteer an individual plan of the voluntary service, including introduction, supervision and evaluation.

 

Per every week the volunteer supports the technical leader s/he receives 50 ? pocket money. S/he does not have to pay for food and accommodation and can take part in all cultural activities and excursions of the camps.
