  • The aeuroPegasus" (a center for culture and free time activities) is located in the center of Senftenberg and is the city s biggest center for children and teenagers. During the summer break in Brandenburg the center offers different workshops for children aged 7 to 12, which all have the goal of reaching a weekly result by the end of the workshop. It s your job to support the workshops with your ideas, creativity and hands-on mentality. You can help to form the workshops on a methodological level, contribute content or help put the ideas into action. It would be nice if you had some skilled craftsmanship to bring to the table, because there are always small repairs that need to be dealt with. After work, the international work camp helps you to improve your German language skills. The daily German lessons last two hours each day and help you to deal with everyday language. Your language teachers are all native speakers and have experience in teaching German as a foreign language.
  • You will stay in shared rooms in the cultural and free time centre Pegasus. You will sleep on mattresses or camp beds. You will cook together.
  • There are plenty of different options for free time activities, so there should be something for everyone in it. If you don t feel like bathing in the Senftenberger lake, you can cool down in the local skiing hall. The amazing landscape of the Spreewald has a lot to offer, too: You can take canoeing trips or just relax on the Spreewaldkahn (Spreewald boat). The historical town of Dresden is perfect for sight-seeing or shopping trips. You can get there easily by train within an hour. For more information, take a look at this website:

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.
