  • The island of Norderney is located in the national park of the Lower Saxony mudflat, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The campsite is only about 4 kilometers away from the city centre of Norderney and is surrounded by dunes between mudflat and the open North Sea. The district of Aurich organises school trips, summer camps and has special offers for children and teenagers, which take place here. More than 200 children spend their summer holidays here and take part in free time activities. In preparation for the summer season, the campsite has to be checked and repaired and this gives you the opportunity to show off your skilled craftsmanship, repairing trails and fences. In addition, you will be building a new leisure facility with a barbecue spot. You do not need any previous experience, as you will be instructed by a foreman. What you need though, is a passion for working outdoors on an island, isolated from the busy everyday life of a big city.
  • You will stay in wooden huts with 6 beds. The huts are close to the general purpose building, where you find bathrooms, washrooms and seminar rooms. Your accommodation is in the middle of the dunes of the island of Norderney. There will be catering at the campsite, but you also have the option of cooking international dishes for yourselves on some of the days.
  • You will find absolute peace and quiet on the island with its unique nature, but there is also a swimming pool, a high rope course, a surfing school and a bike rental. After work, you can spend your time at the beach and we also suggest to take a mudflat hiking tour, which is unique experience. Norderney has 6.000 residents and lots of visiting tourists during the summer months. For more information:

Ijgd is an independent non-profit organisation active in the field of international youth work. It is one of the largest and oldest workcamp organisations in Germany.

After Worldwar II pupils from Hanover organised the first workcamps aiming to promote reconstruction, to reduce negative stereotypes through international encounters and to envisage new democratic forms of living together. In addition to workcamps, other activities have become part of the work over time. These are organised by six offices of ijgd and additional project offices. Young people can take part in mid-term and long-term voluntary services in Germany and abroad. The fields of activity include social and ecological service as well as heritage protection.
The work of ijgd is funded by state and federal subsidies as well as from other public institutions.

Encouraging intercultural understanding has remained one of the main focuses. Ijgd enables people to actively create community life while giving them the opportunity to broaden their horizons.
Ijgd invites all interested people to join projects working for the communal good!
Self-Organization is spelt with a capital S at ijgd! It purposely foregoes a camp day that is organized by its participants in lieu of a completely pre-organized one. A readiness for active participation in the group is expected from all participants. The group organizes everything about the camp, this includes grocery shopping, cooking, deciding what to do with free time, as well as all other activities of the camp.
