International work camps registration fee discounts:

  • 20% discount for every following camp in the season off the first camp’s registration fee for camps in Europe: 72€ for camps in Europe  and 92€ for camps in North-South programmes.
  • 50% discount for children under 14 years accompanied by parents.

Why pay for the accommodation and food?

Many of the host organisations from Global South countries do not have their own funds that they could use to cover volunteer’s expenses during the project duration. Usually the projects are initiated by small local communities that wish to achieve certain changes and improvements in their own environment through this global partnerships context. Unfortunately, they often do not have sufficient funds to cover volunteer’s needs.  Nor does Zavod Voluntariat have sufficient funds to cover volunteers’ travel expenses and accommodation fees in the host country, however we can cover volunteers’ training and mentoring.

IN THE CASE OF CANCELLATION

In case a volunteer would like to cancel participation in the project, they need to notify us in a written form (e-mail)!

Voluntariat refunds the full amount (100%) of the registration fee, if the volunteer is not accepted to the desired camp, or the camp is cancelled.

Voluntariat refunds 50% of the full amount of the registration fee, if the volunteer cancels participation at least month and a half (21 days) before the camp starts (the host organisation needs to find a new volunteer).

Voluntariat refunds 75% of the full amount of the registration fee, if the volunteer provides a doctor’s note.

Voluntariat does not refund the registration fee, if the cancellation is too late.

Registration fees are returned once a month, on the last working week of the month.
