3. Working groups at the camp

During War starts here a number of groups will work together to make sure that the camp runs smoothly. The following groups are in need of people:

* Infopoint: staff the infopoint, responsible for the overall communication and program during the camp
* Before or after the camp: There's a lot of things that needs to be done before the camp, like cooking, preparing the seminars or building the campsite. After the end of the camp there's also need for people who can stay a bit longer.
* Volunteers to the seminars: host for the school where the seminars will be, sound engineer, people documenting and presenting the programme
* Cooking: The people's kitchen "Automat" organizes the cooking, but volunteers are needed to cook and wash dishes
* Children: Organizes children's activities and look after children

All working groups can be found at the website. If you want to be involved in any of them, inform Ofog by register for camp.
