Our EWOCA3-Workcamp 2017 ended on 31st of July 2017. On Sunday, our participants were very excited: The final presentation was coming up, and preparations had to be made. For the presentation we are expecting a high-level visit from IBB Dortmund.
We had a wonderful final presentation with true words, beautiful music and a tour of the working stations, where the youths could speak about their working processes.
In the evening we had a moving completion ceremony with candlelight, where everyone could tell the group what was important to him or her. Best Friends Photos were made (see our post regarding friendship), and soon will be exhibited on a photography wall at WERKSTATT-Berufskolleg Unna.
Afterwards, of course, there was a great party, we looked at pictures of the whole week in a slideshow and thanks to the farewell party, the final night surely was the shortest of all the short nights.
Then, on early monday morning, the Polish and Italian group were sent off with lots and lots of tears. Everyone will remember the camp as an unforgettable experience, the highs and lows, which we mastered together as a group.
A huge thank you for everyone, who made this possible: Kevin Ewe (school social worker of Werkstatt Berufskollegs and this years’ project coordinator and megaboss of ewoca³ partnership 12), Dieter Schulze (Director of Werkstatt Berufskollegs), Erasmus+, the tireless team of International Association for Education and Exchange in Dortmund – IBB, the partner organisations Fundacja Krzyżowa dla Porozumienia Europejskiego / Kreisau Foundation in Poland, Risorsa Europa in Latina, Italy and all our great team leaders: Markus Fleischer, Christiane Hähner, Daniele Nubile, Valerio Fornato, Agnieszka Zabrzewska and Sofie Koscholke. And of course all our fabulous participants from (more than) three countries!
We also want to very much thank Naturfreundehaus Ebberg for two weeks with the best food and great service. As beautiful traces of the camp, we leave a herb garden, our ewoca wall and the youth bench.
