Emmaus will provide food and lodging for the volunteers at the camp. It will also provide accident insurance and transports needed for the activities and the program of the camp.
The other costs, including medical costs or hospitalization for illness are not included. Volunteers will have to cover their own travel costs from and to the city of the camp, as well as any other maintenance costs needed in case of early recision of the camp participation (due to a personal choice or dismissal).
Volunteers will be hosted in the structures of the communities or in other places placed at our disposal by local associations we will be working with.
