Make Dobogókő beautiful
Come to Dobogókő, a beautiful touristic and climatic health resort on the top of the hills near the Danube bend. Enjoy the fresh air and beautiful landscape and be a part of making it a more beautiful and healthy place!
The workcamp is hosted by Dobogókő Közhasznú Alapítvány (Foundation for Dobogókő) which was established in 1994 in order to preserve and develop the nature, flora & fauna of Dobogókő and its area. The work is done by the volunteers of the foundation who frequently organize community actions in order to clean the environment. Besides, the foundation is actively involved in educational and cultural programs in order to spread the value of environmental protection.
They are also maintaining Zsindelyes Inn&Restaurant, as well the ski resort nearby.

Location & leisure
Dobogókő is the highest point in the Visegrád mountains, 699 meters. This is a place of ancient Hungarians and a traditional hike, ski and climatic health resort. Leisure activity opportunities will be provided by the local partner: hiking, presentations, yoga, meditation.
During the camp the volunteers won’t have the possibility to visit Budapest as the bus connections are quite rare. Therefore we invite volunteers to this camp who are ready for the adventure to live in a yurt and enjoy the calm and peaceful atmosphere close to the nature. (Although during the day the place can be pretty busy because of the hikers and tourists.)
Requirements: The workcamp will consist of manual works, thus good physical condition is required.
From underage volunteers we ask parental authorisation form.
Extra fee: 50€
Remarks: Meeting point is in Zsindelyes Inn. The detailed ‘how to get there manual’ will be shared in the infosheet.
We ask the volunteers to arrive about 16-17 pm in the arrival day.
Application: Egyesek is a member of Alliance which through we exchange volunteers with our partner organisations from all over the world. If you are not a resident of Hungary (citizen or have a legal address in Hungary) you have to apply through one of our partner organisation in your country.
