Beach side olive grove/eco build project - AKA Camp Plaka

Because it is a new project - be part of it (and we don't even know where it is going, we just do it because we want to have a "working" vacation ourselves, that is how both of us met each other).
Because we will have outdoor tasks, in the amazing nature of Pelion, using tools and materials to create and sustain.
Because we are just a stone throw from the water of an amazing beach.
Because it will be FUN!

Demian and Omer are friends that met in a build of a festival couple of years ago. we both are recent parents and we both want to escape city life and create a little paradise somewhere nice, that is how this project came to be. We will live camping on-site with the volunteers, doing tasks together, eat together, make decisions together. And we will go to enjoy the beach and site together.

Learning & Fun




It was my first time in Greece and I absolutely loved it. Staying in Plaka Camp was great because it was in nature and get to see amazing views + by living in such a place (not hostels) you can really get to know more about local culture, meet new people, have a real experience. Work was fine, it was my first time doing something like that so when I practiced it was really good and fun, but it absolutely was not safe. We made food/dinner etc mostly ourselves which was really nice, that we get to experiment and decide what we want. And people whom I met at the camp were just great.

Definitely one of the best experience in my life!
I can tell that it was some hard times as the weather wasn’t the best all the time, but all of the people I met was just amazing personalities from all around the world! I came here from big city life so being surrounded with pure nature was something different and I really loved it! I learnt so many new things: something about Greek culture by getting along with locals, gardening job and also getting to know about other world cultures from all of the travelers I met here. Omar, Dani and Layla (their daughter) are super welcoming people.

I recommend this to anyone wanting to spend time in nature and going back to basics. Omer and Dani are very welcoming and easy going hosts. The area is absolutely beautiful with the camp being secluded in their plot of land but with villages 10 minutes walk away.

The work was easy and we worked about 3hrs morning/ afternoon clearing brambles. The rest of the time we were left to enjoy the area/ beach or help cook and do some small chores.

The last night they stayed with their friends in Volos so they dropped me off at a hostel they recommended and I enjoyed exploring another city.

I absolutely loved my experience at Plaka Camp! I had close to zero experience in manual work, so I gained a lot of experience in that matter. Omer was an amazing host and I had the best time working/living in nature and swimming in one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen everyday. Thank you for the experience and the great memories! ps: people from Québec are more than welcome there

I spent some days at Plaka beach camp and I really enjoyed the experience. Omer, Dani and Damien are warm and welcoming people and made me feel at home right away.
The nature is absolutely beautiful, when you walk from the camp to the beach, you get a beautiful view and an instant smile on your face :)
I recommend the experience to anyone wanting to work outside in the nature, spend time with nice, open minded people in beautiful Greece.
Thank you guys for the nice days there!
