  • Description

    Description

    Our family is comprised of 3 human members, myself, Sam, my husband Elan and our son Ezra (18 months). We have also 2 dogs. We work seasonally and it's pretty busy for us in the summer. For this reason we are looking for someone to help care for Ezra as it's been especially difficult bringing him to work with us since he's now on the move. We are owner/operators of a glamping vacation site. We also have a small market garden so we can enjoy fresh produce all summer.
    We live in Harrington, QC. We are in the heart of the forest. We are located about 25 mins from Mont-Tremblant, an international tourist destination. Our region is known for it's beautiful lakes and rivers , hiking trails and outdoor activities. At our business one can find hiking trails, gardens, a private lake and more.
    In our free time we like
    - Laughing
    - Swimming in the lake
    - Campfires
    - Relaxing in a hammock
    - Singing in the sun
    - Listening to the forest
    - Hiking
    - Canoeing

    EATING delicious food!!!!!

    Mon-Fri 9am-6pm work

    Our expectation is for the Workawayer to be with Ezra most days during the day. Elan and I are around most days, so they aupair would be close by to us. We would love help with caring for Ezra, light cleaning and meal prep. You will be welcome to stay home with Ezra or come to work with us and enjoy going to the lake, the park or just playing in the garden. We can offer a unique forest experience as well as a weekly stipend $.
