About

Become part of a wonderful journey at the Summer Rural Bootcamp, a volunteer home rehabilitation program in Óbidos.

For 12 days, you will join a group of volunteers, from all over the world, in this Portuguese village to help create a welcoming and cozy home for those who need it the most.

More than 1000 volunteers are divided into teams, with each team placed in a home they will rehabilitate until the program ends. During these days you will paint and tow walls and ceilings, build bathrooms, arrange doors and windows, repair roofs, and much more. All the tasks are going to be supervised by a specialized technician, from our partner Just a Change. Your group will join in fun activities, sharing your experiences and culture at night.

Days start early and are very busy with the rehabilitation. Work ends at the end of the afternoon, and you will have time to chill and enjoy the sunset or relax before dinner.

This is a Summer Camp that you can't miss!

Amazing Experience

I had the opportunity to enroll two of these camps and I recommend it to anyone who wants to create a huge impact in people's lives. Home is the most important place in the world, and being able to improve it for people in need is a beautiful and fulfilling thing. The group interaction is very strong and the environment is really really fun. The work is intense but it is totally worth it ! I met amazing friends and visited beautiful places. I will definitely repeat this experience !

Epic

Unlike most volunteer projects, Just a Change has an immediate impact on people's lives. Throughout the week you'll see the team work making the dream work.
The Summer Rural Bootcamp is both productive and enjoyable. Who would know rehabilitation programs in rural areas could be this fun!
You will realize you were born with two hands: one for helping other people, and the other for holding a beer.
It is an epic week, to say the least..
