Participants who take part in the Regional Restoration Camps follow a rigorous but fulfilling schedule combining theory with hands-on restoration work on historic monuments in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo or Serbia. Each intervention directly helps local residents by teaching them to use traditional materials and techniques to repair their valuable buildings and by providing a new way of understanding, interpreting and revitalizing them. During the Camps, participants stay in accommodation on site, attending lectures in the morning and working to complete a hands-on restoration project on a historic building in the afternoon. Lectures are conducted by professional conservators and professors who come from prominent local and international institutions. Works on site are guided by a master crafts person, who teaches techniques and ensures that the restoration work is of the highest quality. At the end of the Camp, participants are evaluated on their knowledge of the lectures and their work on site, and they also evaluate their Camp experience.
