  • Description


    HI! !
    I live in Muskoka Lakes, Ontario's premier cottage country.
    I am looking for summer child care for an active, sweet 8 yr old boy. He loves to swim, bike, kayak and play all sports. There are beautiful lakes all around where I live. The closest beach is a 2 minute walk down my street. We have kayaks and bikes to share. I work from home but have a very busy job.

    I have traveled extensively in North America, Europe and Africa. I love meeting people, am open to sharing my home, my mind, my people and my Labradoddle with anyone willing to do the same.

    My adult children who have traveled extensively throughout Europe as Workawayers and I would love to give back to the program that has helped them explore foreign cultures in a safe and meaningful way.

    My personal experience thus far as a workaway host has been hugely successful.

    I am looking for someone who is interested in hanging out at the beach, park or bike trails with a boy and a dog. Monday to Friday . No evenings or wknds are necessary. I have a big yard if you have your own camper or spare bedrooms in my house. All amenities and rooms would be shared.
    MUST be Vaccinated.
