Kadsala Open Mind Camp
We are a community social enterprise in a tiny beautiful local village in Chiang Mai, Thailand:
We are a community of local Thai people living near the town of San Pa Tong, about an hour's journey southwest of the city of Chiang Mai. We are a quiet area, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our community/guest residence brings together local crafts and crafts people and international guests and volunteers. If you are looking for authentic Thai culture and a rejuvenating time in nature, San Pa Tong is a perfect place to be! We are situated among beautiful greenery and near to local organic farms, peaceful monasteries, and have close access to mountains and hiking.
Local community support:
Our Thai culture Homestay community provides a place of employment to numerous handicraft masters .
When you choose to come to us you are supporting them, as well as a local community, a local charity, as well as you are helping to keep the handicrafts tradition alive.
The place allows you to deeply connect with the Thai local culture in a natural and relaxing environment. We welcome everyone to come and join our community in this mountainous province in northern Thailand. In your free time, you can pay to participate in woodcarving, cooking classes, learn meditation, massages, visit an elephant camp, muay thai boxing, and yoga class.
Natural and Relaxing environment:
You can enjoy cycling, exploring, reading, cooking ,and other activities. In our open space you have access to meditation and yoga areas as well as a beautiful relaxing garden.
We are looking for relaxed and friendly volunteers to be part of our team :)
The Community social enterprise in Sanpatong has founded the project for supporting the local culture and developing the English skills of local students inside and outside the classroom. Our aim is to encourage the local students to be able to communicate in English.
This Project gives tourist as well as Thais the opportunity to get in touch with northern Thai culture and way of living. Fundamentally, this project helps to sustain the traditional northern Thai handicrafts.
As we are a comunity social enterprise,we need fund to develop our projects. This is one of the project so we require a project fee from our volunteers to help cover the costs involved with providing quality international volunteer project, i.e. volunteer housing, few meals per week, stationary supplies for English weekend school and supporting the local craftsman.
Why volunteer at our "Open Mind Camp "and "Thai Culture Homestay".
