We're looking for handy people and people who want to train their building skills in May! Starting May 15.
From June the tourist season starts, ending in mid/end of August.
We get many applications, so if you are serious about it, please write as if it was a regular application :) We may not be very fast with our initial reply.
We have a friendly and extraordinarily beautiful camping site on the fjord, close to Kristiansand, Norway. It is completely run by volunteers. This is a naturist holiday place, with places for tents and caravans and several rooms and huts to rent. The core team and regulars form the base of the 'Isefjær family', and our goal is to make everyone feel at home in our little paradise.
There is a lot of awesome nature around, but it's not very easy to get to the city if you don't have a car. So: perfect for nature lovers, not so great for people who like to go out etc.
Isefjær is a holiday destination for naturists. The staff is close to the guests most of the time and lives at the same site. That is why it is important for us to find volunteers who are naturists themselves or are willing to try it out. We expect you to join us swimming on a hot day, for example. We want to avoid awkward situations or situations where guests and/or volunteers would feel uncomfortable (for example when a volunteer would use a bathing suit when swimming or sunbathing). We are happy to explain further, if you are wondering.
NOTE: short, generic messages will NOT be answered. It is not always possible for us to see the full website, so please write about yourself in your message, don't just link to your profile. Please write something about you understanding that we are naturists, too. Thanks!

Helping with Tourists
The volunteering will be mostly tourist related and it will include cooking for guests and cleaning rooms and sanitary buildings. We are looking for good people's skills especially for the high season ( half June and all of July).
You need to speak good English.
We also need people to help with painting, construction, maintenance of buildings and maintanance of plants and trees. You don't really need experience, just a good pair of hands and the will to learn.
Workload will vary, depending of weather, number of guests and number of volunteers. You will have very relaxed days with only a few hours of work, and some longer days. We do our best to make sure you have a day off every now and again.
Couples or friend groups also welcome! Volunteers that are naturist are preferred.
English, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch
You would get the use of a simple private room. Bedlinens etc are also available. Food included.
Walks or bicycle trips in the nature, a trip to beautiful Kristiansand, swimming in the fjord if you dare. Someone will come and pick you up from Kristiansand train or bus station, or the airport. Local bus connections are not always reliable.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
