    Dear friends,
    You are welcome to Finland to the small hostel located in the forest.

    During camps there is a lot of work like cooking, cleaning, working with children, teaching, etc. Usually there is not so much free time during camps. Days off we usually have after camp. Anyway, we are flexible and we can agree other timetable too.

    Besides camps in summer we accept helpers for general maintenance work, gardening, etc. For these tasks the timetable is about 5 hours per day and two free days per week.
    We provide accommodation and food for helpers (also for vegetarians and vegans, gluten free, lactose free).
    You are welcome to participate in all activities, which we organise for our customers, like excursions, swimming pool, etc.
