camp-in

WHAT IS CAMP IN?

Camp In is an intensive program wherewe decentralize our impact! In partnership with various Municipal Chambers, Foundations and Companies, we rebuild various houses spread from north to south of Portugal, during the summer months.

There are 15 intense days of construction work in the homes of needy families, mobilization and interaction with the local community, all always with the lively and relaxed spirit of Just a Change. Seats are filled in order of registration so don’t waste time!

// During 15 days (sunday to sunday) we will be working to rebuild a home of a family in need.

// We work in teams from 9AM to 6PM, from monday to saturday. We rest on sunday.

// Each team has a coordinator responsible.​

// In the construction work, there is a professional technician who guides the work and teaches you everything you need to know.

// The registration has a cost of 50€ (includes accommodation, food, transport within the town, t-shirt, insurance, construction tools and protection equipment).​

// You have to bring to the construction steel toe boots, clothes to get dirty and, very important, spirit of service.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do registrations open for Camp In?

The registrations for the 2024 Camp In will open on May 22nd 2024.

What does it take to be a volunteer?

To become a Just a Change volunteer, you just need to be 18 years old or older, available and willing to help! The rest is on us 🙂

Are there any age restrictions for volunteering?

Yes. To be a volunteer you must be 18 years old or older. There is no maximum age! Although most of our volunteers are university students (18 – 26 years old), anyone of legal age is welcome!

I've never worked on construction sites and I don't know anything about construction. Can I still participate?

Yes! Our volunteers are constantly accompanied and supervised by a coordinating volunteer and a construction technician, who are there to teach you everything you need!

I am on the waiting list. And now?

(Un)Fortunately, we have more applications than vacancies. Vacancies are occupied in order of registration and therefore it is natural that there are people on the waiting list. But don’t get discouraged yet! There’s always the chance someone drops out and you can join. Unfortunately, this can happen even in the days before the camps and we have no way of giving you further notice.

How much does a camp cost and what does it include?

The camp has a cost of 50€, which includes insurance, a Just a Change t-shirt, food (breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner), accommodation for the 15 days and transport from the accommodation to the construction site and vice versa, during the working days.

This amount DOES NOT include transport to the camp site or extra food.

Can I do just a few days of the camp?

No. There are a lot of people who want to participate in the Just a Change camps. By occupying a vacancy, you are taking the place of someone else who could perhaps spend every day in the field and that would not be fair.

I live in the area where the camp takes place. Can I sleep at home?

No. Just a Change camps are an intensive experience of working and interacting with other people. The camp spirit gains a lot with everyone’s presence. So we think it makes sense to spend every day together!

I have dietary restrictions. Can I participate in the camp?

Yes! In the registration form you can explain your restrictions and the management team will guarantee special food for you!
