    Hey there, fellow traveler!

    We love travellers, bringing people together, mixing cultures and to show people how to have a good time during their stay in Munich. We set up a cozy camp for travellers to experience Oktoberfest hassle free with a fun stay. We want to create a place where people can meet, connect and enjoy an awesome time together. Our camp will be the home base for our visitors and volunteers where you can have the most beautiful Bavarian experience; with good food, traditions, clothing, tasty beers and experience the German language.

    We are on the lookout for a cool crew to help out with our camp and getting it set up for our wonderful guests camp is all about experiencing the true bavarian culture in an international environment. The roles we have at camp are:

    Rockstars - The Rockstar squad take on the upkeep of the camp and ensuring the best comfort for those visiting travellers. Tasks include making up and cleaning tents, facility checks, general cleaning and washing up and running guests between reception and their tents to help get them settled. These are predominantly morning roles, with a few stretching into the afternoon/evening so are ideal for those who like to head into town in the evenings or get stuck in and involved with our events around camp.

    The Happiness Squad - This is our rockin' ready Reception and Events crew, our first impression people who are comfortable facing customers, helping to explain the local area and a dab hand when it comes to resolving problems. Most importantly they wear big smiles and love to engage with people! The role can be morning, evening or night and suits those who like to be flexible, have a varied experience and like to get stuck in and be part of the heartbeat of the camp.

    Bitchin' Kitchen - There's nothing better than a nice, hearty meal to get you going when camping and our Kitchen guys quickly become well- loved members of the team, taking delight in feeding the crew! The role will cover evening meal times, leaving you the rest of the time to enjoy the city and camp life!

    Media Mob - In this group we are looking for creatives to come up with amazing wow-factor video/photography content for our social media and website (must have own gear). The role means you will generally be free in the afternoon and evening to documents events around the camp and in town, helping share memories with our travellers and crew alike.

    There is always a lot of interest in these roles so please make sure you give us a link to some of your work when you are applying. About us: We create a home away from home for fun, young travellers. It’s camping where you don’t have to worry about a thing. We set up camp in the eastern part of Munich (close to subway stations), where we greet guests with a cold beer, cheesy smiles and their very own pre-erected tent or cabin (along with air mattress, sleeping bag and breakfast).

    If that's not enough we top it off by including in-camp entertainment and trips out and around town either with our own crew or our touring partners. There are warm showers, toilets, a vending machine, and a cafe/ restaurant. We bring good vibes and create a fun atmosphere with a common area for our guests to chill, hang out, listen to music and (hopefully) enjoy the sunshine!

    What we expect from you: You will be required to work 5 shifts per week on a rostered basis, and the rest of the time you are free to explore the wonderful city of Munich and the surrounding areas, chill at camp with the crew or get involved with the fun and games of our events.

    What you can expect from us: As "payment" for your hard work, we’ll provide you with a free stay which includes the use of the facilities, a staff tent, air bed and sleeping bag (usually costs €50 per night). We’ll also include three meals a day, snacks, some beers and a good time.

    How to apply: We do experience huge interest in volunteering at our camps, so to help us please copy and paste the following into your contact with us, completing the fields as required. We will then get in contact with you for a quick Skype chat/Facetime.
