So now we begin…
The start date for our summer programme in Thórsmörk and Goðaland has now arrived!
Following a brief resupply trip to Reykjavik this week, we are expecting the arrival of our volunteer team leaders in Langidalur over the weekend. Our official start date is Sunday and together we have a week to prepare for the arrival of the first volunteer team on June 9th.
We have a very busy training/induction week planned for our team leaders. As well as ongoing work at the base camp (which is still very much a work in progress) and generally preparing the practical work projects, the leaders will be getting to know the area and learning about group management and safety planning. We are delighted to be joined this week by Tony Newby, a volunteer trainer from the UK who has several years experience training volunteer team leaders in Iceland.
So now the camp has been established, the equipment and food has been delivered, the team leaders are on their way… we just need the rain to stop!
