We are a Swiss Family with two small boys who immigrated to Canada 4 years ago and are living our dream here. We have settled in a little community in the Shuswap near the lake. We have a Paddle Boarding Business and we will be running Kids Camps this year. It would be great to have someone who would like to improve their English, go to programs with our kids, help in the household and maybe in the business plus enjoy our fun life here in Canada.

Sicamous is small and yet very accessible. Halfway between Calgary and Vancouver. There is a ton to explore around here. During summer there are also first nation events happening which are fun for cultural learning and expansion. As for learning English..it is an awesome place as there are not really any other europeans around and with kids you learn it so fast.
Summer gets really busy in Sicamous. Its a fun little community during this time. While Pascal is at work and Nicole runs her Stand Up Paddler business we need some help with our 4 and 6 year old boys. There are lots of fun things to do in town with the kids. We would be very happy to have someone that loves working with kids and getting involved with all their programs. Great opportunity to improve your English as there are daily programs for kids to go to.

In our house we have a guest room in the basement with a separate bathroom.
We live in Sicamous - A small friendly town which gets pretty busy during summer months as it is the capital of house boating. There is tons to do around here if you like being in nature. During the winter months snowmobiling is very popular and in summer you can literally do anything that you can think of that has to do with water, lakes or mountains. The list is endless.
