  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple with two girls ages 11 and 6. We run a retreat on a beautiful lake in the Kawarthas near Peterborough Ontario. The area is filled with wonderful opportunity for outdoor adventure and is only 2 hours from Toronto. We love the outdoors and enjoy camping, boating and hiking as well as skiing in the the winter. We speak English and French and some Spanish. We love to travel and meet new people. We are activity involved in our faith community and have enjoyed welcoming New Canadians from Syria to our community recently.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Opportunites to explore the city of Toronto, ski in the winter, canoe, kayak and hike, be exposed to many different people, enjoy the use of the retreat lodge, art room and the 27 acres of Canadian forest. We also live very close to Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park. We are a fun loving family who are wanting to make a difference in the world and are needing some help with the business of it all.

    Help

    We are looking for a someone to live in our home attached to the retreat centre to help with household chores such as cleaning, laundry, outdoor work and possibly childcare. She would be helping in our own home as well as the retreat. Ability to drive our car would be helpful in order to be more independent and help transportation if necessary. Depending upon interest and skills there is opportunity to explore outdoor pursuits, work with local charities and other interests. We are excited to expose our children to other cultures and languages. Practice with French or Spanish is a bonus.
