Dear helpxers,

We have continued to have wonderful experiences with helpx; thank you all so much!!! Now, we are looking for

I. We are looking for one person or two friends or a couple who like being in the country and spending time with children (7-15) and who if possible are interested in art, cooking, or theater to be counselorsor assistant counselors (don't worry, you don't have to be a teacher; we will train you and help you!) FOR HS Kids, Actors, Sculptors and Cooks, week-long sessions of a full-immersion English summer camp for Italian children ages 7 to 15. The children act, do art projects (doesn’t have to be sculpture; some years they paint or do collage) and bake cakes and cookies — all as a way to learn English by living the language.
We are like a little community and children and staff have a lot of fun together going for walks, picking and arranging flowers, swimming in the spring (with a beautiful waterfall!) nearby so the program has both art and nature as its focus. You would do 6-8 hours five days a week, and then be free Saturdays and Sundays, which would give you time to explore the local area with its many beautiful cities (starting with Assisi of course!).

We are looking for helpxers who can do at least 3 weeks between

July 15th - September 9th

If you can stay for longer or the whole time, that would be great!! We will do preliminary training on skype, but training also occur, of course, once you're here. We want it to be a good experience for you and want you to feel comfortable and confident with things.We'll give you as much freedom as you'd like (to come up with activities, etc) but are also there with lots of activities we've already done and to be a support system.

We will try to work with your dates, particularly if this really seems like the right experience for you! ... So if you have different dates, send them along and let's see what we can do!
And, oh yes... your English really has to be very good!

II. We are also looking for:
Someone to take care of garden and our wonderful dog William and wonderful but disdainful cat pepe for the month of September. Flesible about these dates; if you'd like to come in August that also could work. Two friends or couple probably best, but one person is fine, too.

Look forward to hearing from you! Best from Assisi, and, of course if you have questions about any of this, please do send them along.


PS Davide is very busy with new teaching job in experimental school so I am writing here instead.
