  • Description


    We need friendly, outgoing people in beautiful La Rioja, Spain for up to three weeks, between June 28th and July 18th this year.

    We run a small summer camp for Spanish primary school kids in our Bed and Breakfast. We are looking for volunteers to play sports, make crafts, swim in the river and pool, hike in the mountains, and generally be enthusiastic, energetic, happy and friendly! We need you to speak English with the kids. (but you´ll learn Spanish too). We expect everyone to help out with the general cleaning of the camp.

    No smokers. No alcohol during the week. You help out in the morning or the afternoon, but if you consider going for a hike in the mountain, looking after kids in a swimming pool or at the river, playing basketball or soccer with a group of kids hard work, then this isn't for you. Saturday afternoon and Sunday off, with accommodation in the nearby city for a night out if you want.

    You get a bed in a shared room with the kids in the camp. We cannot provide much differentiation of meals, we eat what the kids eat. Mostly vegetarian is doable, but strict vegan isn't.

    We are looking for people to stay for two weeks.

    As adults, we are the ones to keep the kids active, safe, and entertained all day. We work in two shifts because the kids have more energy than we do! But it is a lot of fun ad we laugh all day long. Lots of our helpers return year after year.
