My name is Caner, I have lived in Geyikbayırı for 5 years and first came here for climbing and ski mountaineering and fell in love with the area and the opportunities for adventure. In December 2019 I opened a small campsite here surrounded by the some of the best rock climbing points in the world. I am working full time to make the camp a success and hope to attract not only rock climbers but also all kind of adventurers. Currently I am looking for a volunteer to help with general tasks around camp.
I am the owner and sole worker at the camp but do not receive a salary.
We have already built a common kitchen, common toilets and bathroom, a few small guesthouses and a campsite. Our place is very close to the climbing routes and is surrounded by forests and mountains. Our first focus is to keep our place as clean as possible.

Geyikbayırı is famous for highlining and our camp and the surrounding area attracts lots of artistic people including many jugglers and musicians. I can share Turkish food, language and culture. We have guests visiting from all over Turkey and overseas and so you'll have the chance to make friends with our guests and learn more about their cultures and as we have a common kitchen guests often share food and drink and languages. I am keen to improve my English and would look forward to chatting with you.
Help with general cleaning, check-in and out, gardening, maybe some help with construction if volunteers have the skills, occasional help with proof-reading English for our website, social media and notices around camp.
We ask for no more than 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. We can be flexible with the working time but usually require the kitchen and bathroom areas to be cleaned at night or in the mornings before guests wake up.
The ideal volunteer will be friendly and helpful, can communicate well with our guests, a nature lover, respectful of others and able to do manual labour such as cleaning and gardening.

I am Turkish and can also speak English.
We can provide 1x 2 person tent, bedding and mattress. You will not share your tent with any other volunteer (unless couple). Volunteers will have access to the shared kitchen that guests use which includes gas cooker, fridge, kitchenware and food storage box. If the workload increases and more hours are needed then we will be able to provide more benefits in terms of accommodation or food.
You will also have access to other facilities shared by our guests: 24 hour hot water showers, three toilets, free washing machine (guests must arrange laundry service but volunteers don't need to), common area with multiple electrical sockets for charging and wood burning stove, campfire, projector, printer (not for guests).
Food can be bought from a small local shop ın Geyikbayırı (25 minute walk), we sell some small supplies in our camp shop. There is a bus that passes 3 times a day to Antalya city otherwise it is possible to hitchike to the nearby town and catch a more regular bus. On Sundays there is a local market, the nearby small town of Geyikbayırı has a small shop and mosque. There are some Turkish restaurants in the local area also. The buses head past a town where there are supermarkets.
The campsite is surrounded by forests and during the winter months (November - February) the temperatures at night can be very cold while during the day can be hot. Volunteers should be prepared to live with quite basic facilities and being outdoors.
Geyikbayırı is a perfect place to be based if you love the outdoors and especially rock climbing with over 1000 bolted sport climbing routes. You can also travel further south to Olympus for more climbing. In addition I am an experienced rock climber and skier and when there is time would be happy to take you rock climbing or if not one we can arrange for a climbing course or perhaps one of our guests may take you if you make friends. We have a skiing area in nearby mountains, we are located at the start/end of the famous Lycian Way long distance trekking route, there are mountain biking routes and an ancient old Lycian city located in the beautiful forests surrounding our campsite. In the summer you can go swimming in the nearby river or head to Antalya to visit the old town or swim in the Mediterranean sea.
If you're a highliner this is a fantastic place to be based, otherwise you can go slacklining, practice yoga or just explore the nature in the local area.
We are located 38km from Antalya airport and 25km from the centre of Antalya.

To ride any public transport, you must buy an Antalyakart (rechargeable transport card) from a newsagent or on the bus. It costs 10L, including 5L credit. You can download the very useful English language app Antalya Kart to help plan your journey.
Bus 600 can get you into Antalya and buses 521 and TK51 will get you to Geyikbayırı or neighbouring villages from where it is possible to hitchhike. From Geyikbayırı it is approximately 20 minutes walk to our camp. Please check the Antalya Kart app for the latest bus times. Expect a journey from the airport to our campsite to take around 3 hours.
Eingeschränkter Internet Zugang

As Geyibayırı is located away from Antalya the Internet speed is not the fastest. We have reliable TurkCell 4G wifi in our common area. The internet is shared with guests and so speeds can vary throughout the day. You can work indoor in our common area or outdoors on our terrace, however both areas are shared with guests so a quiet workspace is not guaranteed.
