    >>Oktoberfest Camp 2021<<
    Hi and "Servus" from Munich!
    Experience the Bavarian way of life with us, get to know lots of new people from all kinds of countries and have a lot of fun! Together with you we want to set up a tent camp with comfortable small and large tents for young Travellers and volunteers and have a cosy and fun time with them during the Oktoberfest, breakfast included. We will do our best to make the camp beautiful (let off steam) and create a real festival atmosphere. There will be relaxed corners with lanterns and hammocks, but also games, tours to the Oktoberfest and lots of fun so that everybody has a super good time.

    Who we are:
    We come from Munich, know a lot about Bavaria, beer, dirndls and the Bavarian way of life in general and we want to share it with you. Therefore we are looking for cool people to help us set up the tent camp and keep it running so that everyone has the best possible Oktoberfest experience.

    Since the tent camp is something like an outdoor hostel, we need helpers in the fields:
    - Reception
    - Kitchen/ breakfast
    - Allrounder
    - Marketing/ Photography/ Music/ Entertaining

    Ideally, you already have experience in these topics, but that' s not necessary. The tasks are not too difficult and we can all certainly learn a lot from each other. The most important thing is that you like to be with people, have fun, and have a real adventure, and that you're not afraid to get into action.
    You will work 5 days a week for about 6 hours a day (this can be more or less on some days) according to a rota. The rest of the week you have time off and can visit Munich and the surroundings or just hang out with the rest of the crew and the guests on the campsite or make your own events and games.

    The setup of the camp will start on September 14th and the breakdown will end at the latest on October 9th, 2020. The Oktoberfest itself will last from September 19th to October 4th, 2020. Ideally you will be there from the beginning to the end so that all of you can form a solid team that knows its way around and there is just not so much change.

    What we offer you:
    We offer you free accommodation, a tent for you alone with sleeping bag and air mattress, a separate tent for the team, three tasty meals a day, snacks, soft drinks and a few beers.
    On the campground there are hot showers, toilets, a café/restaurant/bar, a small supermarket and free cell phone charging stations. And of course lots of fun and the best holiday camp ever!
    Discover Munich, the Alps or Austria in your free time with guests or other volunteers. Even Italy is only about 4 ½ hours away from Munich... and the S-Bahn is only a few minutes away. We know our way around and give you all kinds of tips.

    How you can apply:
    Please help us to structure your application by giving us some information about you. We will then get in touch with you and conduct a short online interview with you.
