p_20160911_143421

We would like to invite all the interested to register for the first term of our Volunteers Camp. It will take place from 13th to 16th July as a part of the project project “Volunteering in Engine Shed Skierniewice as a creation of patriotic care for national railway heritage” supported by the National Board of Heritage (“Volunteering for Heritage” programme). The project is addressed to all those who are at least 15 years old and would like to invest their free time in activities helping save the post-industrial heritage. During the first camp, the coordinator of the project will be awaiting the participants on 13th July (Thursday) starting from 9 AM. The same day we plan to conduct the Health and Safety training and start the first works. Each following day we plan to start the works at 10 AM and continue till 6 PM. Each day will be concluded with hot meal (on the last day we may move it towards the noon). We encourage the participants to take part in one of the following activities:

  • help by the renovation of Steam Engines class Ol49-4 and Ty51-1 (removal of old paint and rust, anti-corrosion protection, painting, small equipment assembly);
  • maintenance and upkeep of Shed’s surroundings (removal of overgrowth, repairs of windows, fence painting).

We offer to the participants:

  • return of the travel costs to and from Skierniewice (2nd class of commuter or fast trains or equivalent public bus transportation, based on the original tickets or printouts of electronic tickets);
  • overnight stay in the social part of the Shed in camping standard (in case of exhausting the capacity of our social area, we will be looking for overnight possibilities outside of the Shed);
  • meals and fresh water;
  • basic working clothing (gloves, aprons);
  • tools;
  • written confirmation of participation (on request).

Due to the limited capacity of our social area, the need of planning the work in advance and preparation of the right amount of the equipment, please let us know in advance of the preferred stay time, overnight preferences and type of work you are interested in (please use the mentioned registration form).

The volunteers camp is sponsored by
