Auroville Bamboo Summer Camp

We’re happy to announce that this year we’re hosting our first Auroville Bamboo Summer Camp at Bamboo Centre. The course will include an in-dept introduction to the building techniques with bamboo and an on-site construction project that we will prepare in co-operation with you.

To ensure quality we will limit this course to 20 people.

The course will run for two weeks (13 days, 27th July – 8th August), out of which we will be working 12 days. There will be no work on sunday, but we will have some options ready for you to discover the surroundings of Auroville.

Optionally we will offer an extension of one week (until 15th August) to experience Auroville and its sustainable lifestyle options and architecture as well as Pondicherry and its heritage buildings.

The final program will be published here on 7th of Aprile. The course will be bookable from 15th of April
