Learning & Fun


Incredible, different and transformative! so was my experience at The Oak.
Being there, you understand the Worldpackers' proposal, travel the world, meet different people, learn new languages, new cultures, acquire new knowledge... and a lot of Conscience!
Marieke, thank you for teaching me to have conscience.
The people at the place are incredible, the project is structured and organized to receive the volunteers, the activities and schedules are well defined. Remember! It's an eco-friendly project, not a hotel. If you want to expand your mind, allow yourself to live this volunteer!

I'm just getting goosebumps and tears in my eyes with your review, Rebecca. Thank you so much for being part of this project!


If you love nature or simply want to take a break from city life, I recommend Robur at the Oak for you. I had a amazing time volunteering here. The Host Marieke welcomes everyone with open arms, so you will feel at home.

My arms are still open to welcome you back, Chinedu, whenever you can! Thanks for all the help and your pleasant presence!


I had an amazing time at Robur Op Den Eik. It is a lifetime experience that I'm sure other volunteers would really appreciate. I miss this place, Marieke and all the volunteers that I met there. I hope to get back next year. Much love for this place!!

That is so sweet, Ceci! You're sure welcome back, if you can make it!


I really enjoyed my time in Robur, i wish i could've stayed a bit longer! Marieke is such a kind and inspiring person, who is so grateful for every little bit of help. Living back to basics was a bit of an adventure sometimes but great fun. Robur op den eik is a very very special place, this world definitely needs something like that. Can't wait to come back next year to see the progress. Wishing Marieke and Robur all the best til then!!

Thank you for your sweet words, Barbara, and your gentle presence at The Oak! It would be great to see you here again!


I had an amazing two weeks at Robur op Den Eik and really miss the place! My time with the people and the work was enriching and healing, being allowed the freedom to be creative and follow my intuition with a mosaic that evolved in an organic way. I am so glad to have been a part of this truly inspiring project and would love to return in the Spring for more and to see how the Robur has developed. Much love to Marieke and all who i shared the time with there!
