Program Details

Usually, we work with a team of max. 8 volunteers, 2 people are helping with the management, and some other people helping with maintenance. Days start at 7.30 and finishing with the dinner at about 9pm. The main task is mostly cleaning and keeping the houses, rooms and common areas tidy and help with our guests.

Activities & Shift

We are working with different shifts. Morning, afternoon, cleaning and dinner preparing shifts. When we have many guests the days are active, but there is always a little bit of time to have a coffee and just watch the sky or have a nice conversation with our nice guests.


Minimum time for volunteers to stay at our project is 4 weeks, with a 2 weeks notice before you leave.
