  • Beschreibung


    We are established on a 34 acres plot of woodland, one hour north of Montreal, in a beautiful, densely forested area. We operate a small experiential cabin business where clients can come sleep under the stars in see through bubbles, sleep in a tipi or a tree house.

    We have a calm, positive, and creative lifestyle, with time and space to practice meditation and yoga daily. Our site is entirely drug, cigarette, alcohol free.

    During the summer months, there is always a lot going on in terms of creative projects. In colder months, our group is less numerous and we focus on simple maintenance of the accommodation business while enjoying more free time.

    There are two main tasks volunteers can help us with year long.

    1. For the detail oriented type: indoor cabin maintenance, which consists of visiting every cabin after clients have left and doing a round of cleaning. You would usually leave on foot with a back pack with cleaning products (you can also drive an atv if you prefer, but it's nice to just walk in the woods too) and you make sure that no dirt is left behind for the next visitor. This is done from 11am until around 2pm.

    2. For those who who prefer a more physical job: driving the big atv around to bring water and firewood to the cabins. It is also done from 11am to 2pm.

    We always need people to help us with some repair work, for minor breakages here and there. Whatever your skills, there should be some creative ways to help us while enjoying the pace of peaceful lifestyle.

    We require candidate to be willing to invest a minimum of one month with us and to perform volunteer work for about 25h/week maximum.

    Outside of the 11 to 2 work, you will also be asked to help with cleaning the main house where you will be staying, taking care of the animal and gardening. You might also help with meal preparation or snow shoveling and snow blowing in the winter.
