  • Description


    We are a Dutch/American family living in a small town in the Rocky Mountains. We like doing things outdoor like camping, kayaking, hiking and biking. We have been Workawayers ourselves when we were traveling for a year around he world last year. We would like to experience the other side of the coin and would welcome you to come help us in and around ourhouse. We can use help putting in a new kitchen, paint, and maintenance in/around the house or I could use help preparing school work (kindergarten). If you have a special talent let us know and we might be able to integrate it!

    We will give you room and board and in your free time there is plenty to explore around here. Denver city is a bus ride away, but the mountains are also spectacular. Mount Evans is a half an hour drive away!
    We love learning and hope to exchange knowledge/language/etc

  • Help


    In August and September we need help with demolishing and installing a kitchen and painting. Other things like helping me (mom elementary school teacher) with preparing school work or other help in the house is also possible. We have two girls of 12 and 13 who go to middle school. The town we live in is a tourist town and activities like rafting, biking, hiking, climbing and skiing are popular.
