Caribou Aventures

We are a family house that operates a Bed&Breakfast, an adventure park with unusual accommodations and activities/sports. We are immersed in nature, in a Forest surrounded by trees, rock climbing and possibilities to practice different kinds of sports. Basically we prepare the place for guests to share the moments with them during their stay. Prior confirmation for a volunteer from April until the end of May/June. Just 1 hour by train fro, Paris... Here is definitely a lifestyle choice where you will have two different experiences: The first is related to involvement with the guests. They are here for various purposes, including team meetings, sports coaching, birthdays, bouldering in the forest and family/friends/couple vacations. However, it's focused in a mutual exchange of ideas, culture, and stories. You greet the guests, share meals, participate in sports, activities and chat with them during the stay. The other is your involvement with the other helpers. You will have the opportunity to meet people from many cultures all over the world, who speak a variety of languages (English being the universal language). You will spend most of your time here, living, helping and experiencing Caribou together with the other helpers. They will become family and you will learn so much from each and every one. The caribou team usually consists of: - Handyman services. Ex: gardening, carpentry, painting, general maintenance, electrics, etc. - Cleaning and Housekeeping. Ex: Cleaning common areas in the house, Laundry, preparing the accommodations for the guests. - Kitchen hand. Ex: Dishes, help with cooking, setting the tables, storage the food, grocery shops... - Accueil. Ex: Welcoming the guests, manage social media, record videos, photos, organise the reception. Welcome to Caribou

We need 3 hours of help during the morning, 3 hours during the afternoon and during the night we rotate 2 helpers to clean the kitchen after dinner, in this days we add +1 hour during the night. (It's funny to do it dancing with your mate!) You have 1,5 days off our week. Normally they happen during the week, once that on weekends and holidays we are very busy, so we expect counting on you. You will have breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner during your day. We will be available to help, inform and support you in all your doubts about how to do the tasks!

If you wanna live an experience as volunteer, learn a lot of stuff, deal with people form all over the world and being in direct contact with sports activities and nature...
Caribou is deffinetly a place for you!

I wish I can come back as soon as possible.
Thanks for everything, guys !

Caribou was an amazing experience! You’re gonna have the opportunity to learn lots of new skills, as you do different activities each day (like housekeeping, cooking, painting, gardening, etc). You also have free time to have fun in the area, do accrobranche, biking, bouldering, explore the forest and play lots of sports with the family, helpers and guests. Stéphane and his family are great and very friendly! Our helpers team was amazing, you end up making friends from all over the world! The volunteers live together in the Helper's House. Caribou was great and will be missed! Super good!

Caribou it's an amazing place if you're willing to do a lot of hard work and you're a flexible person! You will learn a ton of new skills and practice a lot of sport (you will learn new sports as well)
The localization it's perfect if you love staring at the stars by night and be surrounded by nature all time. You'll have plenty of forest and villages to explore, go ciclying, bouldering... You'll have some time to practice your french with guests as well, though volunteers usually speak in english!
To sum up, if you're a sports and nature lover and don't mind working hard I'd recommend it!

I fell in love with Caribou! Not only because the place is beautiful, but mostly because of the wonderful people I met and the wonderful things I've done. The Durocher family is cheerful, funny and open-minded, making you feel comfortable being part of the team. The volunteers get along so easily that without you noticing they become your new family. You work hard, but you have many perks too. So, go for it! You won't regret it! Play sports, climb, swim, try the accrobranche, walk through the forest, ride a bike, watch the sunset, sleep in a bubble looking at the moonlight... HAVE FUN!!!
