  • Description


    My name is Paula, I'm 39 years old and I'm art therapist - in my job I make use of paintings, drama and playgroup therapy. I work with children suffering from ADHD, autism, Asperger syndrome. I have two wonderful sons, aged 8 and 11, and four cats.

    Every year during summer holiday I take some of my children (in this year five of them - one boy with high-functioning autism and the four other full of energy with no special needs). We have two wooden cottages with running water (also hot), kitchen and bathroom with shower for our disposal. The site is located in beautyful forest, near the river Pilica, 10km from the town of Warka and 60km from Warsaw Chopin Airport.

    I'm looking for two persons (may be couple), who like to work with children. We will be painting, building huts, and I will need your help with cooking, a little bit of cleaning and taking care for children's safety.

    I invite you from 19th of August to 26th of August - work will be from 20th August to 24th August (5 hours a day). I offer you alimentation, your own bedroom, and optionally, transport from the Airport/Central Railway Station.
