Nestled in the boreal forest, on the shores of Ministikwan Lake, just north of Bronson Lake Provincial Forest and south of Meadow Lake Provincial Park, this is an outdoor playground. If you want to get away from it all, limited cell service, limited wifi, simple hard-working living, this is your paradise. This is a non-for profit educational group that specialize in outdoor education with a First Nations twist. We also work with the local Cree Immersion School. The program has seasonal round activities and plays host to school-aged children all the way up to University groups.

We are seeking 2 handlers/mushers. You don't need experience but must be in good shape. These positions will be working and keeping a kennel of 30+ sled dogs in exchange for room and board. There are lots of daily chores around the yard. Duties are feeding, watering, exercising the dogs with ATVs.
There are will be dog houses needing fixing, dogs moved around and puppies to be played with. We really want to socialize our puppies which make working with them during the winter season a lot easier and a pleasure.
Additional work will be getting wood, hauling wood and giving rides, harnessing dogs, getting the dogs ready for our tours.
In the summer, we are planning to build a greenhouse and a garden. A green thumb would be an asset. A carpenter would also be another asset.
For the summer months as well, we do host groups of all ages.
Accommodations will be a 5th wheel trailer by the lake and in the winter, it will be in a small cozy cabin with wood heat and power. Must be motivated, hard-working, physically fit, able to work outside in hot or cold weather, able to work with a team and individually.

Accommodation shared with another work exchange person. No alcohol or drugs allowed, smoking outside only.
