My experience at Caribou was amazing! I had great expectations about the time I'd spend there and even so It was much better.
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!!!
