    We will be hosting in 2023!


    It has been very strange last couple of years. Not only Covid, but also here we are not the same as we were yesterday, but I miss volunteers as for me it is more about new friend&family member than work to be done. At the moment we have switched to more employers who are helping with all what needs to be done, but I still think there is a place for a volunteer and things we can share.

    The most I would be happy about a reliable person who could be my right hand (or left one, if you are left handed) who would be ready and willing to help with general managing of the campsite and looking that our guests are happy and everything is running good. So that I can get some free personal time being sure that campsite is in the good hands :)

    If this is working really good, I would be happy to provide some pocket money on top

    This is a beautiful place, a family campsite and also our home where we invite to join us!

    I am Zane and we live together with my children Miks (13) and Tina (17).

    Our season as for the campsite is very busy from April to November, its 24/7 for us, so there is not much time to meet my friends. Therefore I love my volunteers to be my friends and I want to have fun together! Which means that I prefer people who like to socialize, hang around, chat while I am cooking, talk and share. If you want mostly to be on your own and be here only to do what needs to be done disappearing when job is completed - not sure if this would be a great match. Come here if you want to be one of us! We can't promise that there will always be party, but we give our best to spend time together with our extended volunteer family.

    We have many years experience in hosting travelers, our campsite guests and for the last 10 years - volunteers. We have done volunteering ourselves - in 2012 we spend a month in France and in Spring 2016 me and Miks were volunteering 1 month in Spain.

    This will be the 13th year for our own family business - small campsite. We had been working hard to build up the place from zero and most of what you can see is DIY. We have done a lot, but there are more to do by improving and adding and rebuilding as new ideas pop up every day.

    Our campsite is located in a countryside area some 15 km from the capital of Latvia Riga. There are 2 squash courts with patio surrounded by garden. Also a pond and canal for swimming, big children playground, canoe boats, SUP boards and 3 romantic floating bungalows. We are opened during the summer season from April until November and help mainly is needed within these months.

    Thanks for our fantastic volunteers and friends we had been able to achieve so much and also had a great time together! We are very thankful to all the people we have hosted - we love you all. Without you life would be not so interesting!

    Though the place is a family business place, you will live here in a family and become one of us. We eat together, go to parties together, go to the beach, play board games and card games, watch movies, make BBQs - it s fun. You will be part of little crazy Latvian family (oh, we are divorced now, but still own the business together).

    You can learn some national dishes, more about gardening, DIY projects - many things going on here. Never tried to play squash - we can teach you!

    Every year here is so much different from the previous...

    Though the site is a family owned business place, we also live here ourselves, so the work and everyday family life is blended together and it s difficult to understand where one ends and the other starts :)

    We work a lot with children - in spring and autumn we host school trips and everybody is involved in these activities. During summer we have children camps which is very busy time for everybody.

    We also have 2 squash courts, so anybody playing squash is very much welcomed! We have all the equipment here, just take your sneakers with you! If you have no idea how to play squash - we will teach you. There will be unlimited possibility to use our squash courts for training and playing. Every week there is also a weekly a round robin (tournament). There are different tournaments taking place in Riga and You will have a chance to participate.

    Will there be other volunteer? Depends... There will definitely be other people who work with us.

    The most I would be happy about a reliable person who could be my right hand (or left one, if you are left handed) who would be ready and willing to help with general managing of the campsite and looking that our guests are happy and everything is running good. So that I can get some free personal time being sure that campsite is in the good hands :)

  • Unterkunft


    Volunteers will be staying in a caravan (have a heating too, we ourselves slept there until mid-November). The caravan is for 2 people, so you need to be ready to share this place with strangers (all genders).
    All facilities will be in the main building where we live now, In 2017 we started to rebuild the main building, so in 2020 our office&kitchen&living room will still be looking little bit like construction site.

    We have WiFi. Volunteers can also use bikes if they like and canoe boats and may be a car too.

    Normally we cook and eat together a big evening meal and provide you with food for self-made breakfast and lunch. I am pretty good cook, so promise you will get tasty meals! Please note, that helping in preparing meals and cleaning kitchen afterwards is not considered as work, but sharing of house chores.

    We do not not cook vegan/vegetarian or provide special vegan stuff (coconut milk, nuts, tofu, almond/soya milk, fancy expensive fruits&vegetables, etc.). We had vegetarians living/staying with us and being the main cook I have realized that if 3 of us are eating meat and one is vegetarian, I am not really having energy to cook balanced and tasty dinner satisfying all needs. So, you shall be prepared that from what is cooked, may be only rice & salad is fitting your diet and you have to cook extra yourself. If you are vegan, you are welcome, but you will need pretty much to look for your special dietary needs yourself.

    The closest village Kekava with shops and bus to Riga is 20 min walk away form the campsite, Riga is 30 min on the bus, easy accessible.

    Latvia is a small, but very beautiful country, an unspoiled oasis. Beaches are fantastic and there are plenty of things to do (including Riga nightlife if you go for it!). If You look for volunteering job to improve or learn languages, this is a good chance to learn Latvian or Russian.

    Our internet connection works fine, though I am not sure hosting people who would need to spend a lot of hours working on their own projects is smth what would fit to us. But feel free to contact us and we will see
