Nocrich Scout Centre is a meeting and welcoming place for all the scouts, whether they are Romanian or come from abroad, as well as for other people interested in the area and finding out more about Romania and the scout movement here. It is hosted in a 220 year old house that is full of soul and personality, situated in southern Transylvania, 30 km away from Sibiu.

We are part of The National Organization of Romanian Scouts, a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, a movement which tries to provide education for life.

Scouting offers young people the chance to engage in various activities, it creates new opportunities for them and it encourages diversity and equality, linking new friends. Scouting empowers the practice of democracy, developing the potential of every individual and groups alike.


Each year we have volunteers from all across the world (we had 55 volunteers from 10 different countries in 2014) who come to help us with activities for the kids, administrative work, cooking and taking care of the garden, welcoming guests and helping them with different activities. We have 25 bikes, a pottery workshop, a big barn for activities, a library with about 1200 books, some in foreign languages, a lot of nature around the village and many, many other things.

Each volunteer can suggest a new project and he can develop his/her project at the scout centre. We are open to new ideas. The house is still under development so we also have to do administrative tasks like cutting wood, making reparations. Nocrich Scout Centre will provide housing and utilities such as a fully equipped kitchen, internet.

Usually we are looking for volunteers who can spend minimum one month here but we can make exceptions depending on the situation.


Accommodation
There are 16 bunk beds inside the house, but the volunteers generally sleep in tents when the house is booked, which is mostly during the summer months.

What else you can do?
Opportunities to see the countryside, to do some pottery in our workshop, take a tour of Sibiu or do scouting activities depending on when you come. We will be sure to do something to make your visit special :)

Getting here:
Bus service is available from "Autogara 1 - Transmixt" in Sibiu or you can hitchhike from the outskirts of the city and sometimes even from the central area if you are resourceful enough.
