Program Description

Dates: 28.04.-10.05.2016
Russian NGO InterAction Club creates its residence in a rural area. The aim is to create a voluntary center in a village next to a natural preserve "Divnogorye". The project runs since 2012 and has already hosted several international workcamps. The project is suitable for adventurous and creative volunteers who prefer to deepen into the real life of a different country. This particular experience provides volunteers an opportunity to live rural life in nature in a Russian village still being a center of cultural and artistic life of the region. The unique place – village Divnogorye – can be translated as Wonder Mountains. Next to the village is situated a natural preserve. It includes treasures for scientists of different areas (archeologists, ornithologists, geologists and architects). A river, high chalk hills as the border of ice age period and breathtaking view to the valley brings to this place artists, pilgrims and nature lovers.

This fee includes: Accommodation, food and cultural program.
It is also possible to make a visa invitation.
