Our family owned camping is right on the outskirts of Riga, only 15km from city centre, surrounded by a countryside environment. Being post-soviet country Latvia may not seem a dream destination, but all people who have come to stay with us said they were surprised how much they liked it here. Our campsite is not a big place and we are in the seems-to-be-never-ending process of building and improving. Most of the things we build and design and construct ourselves, as well as looking after our clients, which are campsite guests, hosting private parties, children summer camps, squash. Volunteers have come to help us the last few years and it has been a lot of fun for all of us.

The range of help we ask is wide - from everyday chores,like cleaning, looking after our cute 12 bunnies and cutting grass, to construction of our new projects (mostly woodwork) - we try to make your stay here as diverse and interesting as possible. You will live in a caravan and possibly share it with someone else. In some cases we can also accommodate you in our main campsite building. You will get 24h access to WiFi, can use bike or canoe, swim and much more. We will expect your help for some 5 hours per day (timing is flexible) and you will get all meals and there is always food in fridge so you can get extra any time.

We have 2 children - 9 and 5. My sister lives in the house next to campsite and she has 2 daughters, so it is always a lot of children around.

Summers are very busy and I can't promise a lot of showing around, but if we can find a free time to go somewhere - movies, clubs, beach, etc., we will always take you with us.

Almost forget to mention - we have done volunteering ourselves in France in 2012. It was fantastic!
