UPDATED INFO, since the number of kids and their camp schedules are now confirmed.

I am Naia, a Spanish girl living in Geneva, Switzerland for nearly 8 years. I adore this town and all its surroundings: swimming in the lake with the Mont-Blanc glacier view, the good summer weather, the lake promenade, Bains de Paquis and Perle du Lac, free cinema and concerts in the parks, great atmosphere in town, the forests and great hikings and medieval villages nearby.

After last year's great experience with helpx volunteers, this summer 2018 we are running again Summer Camps for kids ages 4-8 in the center of Geneva (Plainpalais) and we are looking for 1 to 4 volunteers per week, to stay as many weeks as they wish, from Sunday 24th June to Friday 28th July.

I will try to give you now as many details as you might need about the exchange, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

We exchange Full Board Accommodation for 4 hours and 15 minutes help per day (Mon... more inside

We're a family with two children (6 and 2 years old), running a permaculture project at 1300 mt. on the Swiss alps, in a small historical village served by public transports. We have a veggie and medicinal garden and few ducks. Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
Help needed in the veggie garden (mulching, fencing, etc.), in the house (housekeeping and cooking, babysitting) as well as for harvesting and transforming wild plants. Families are welcome.
We look for motivated volunteers that wants to experience our way of living; therefore if you need a place in Switzerland as a basis to look for jobs, this is not the place for you.
Being at our place you'll become part of a tribe. Help in daily tasks is required and we'll be happy to share with you trekkings to enjoy the beauty of our area and to harvest wild medicinal herbs.

We run a hostel in a small mountain village in the Swiss Alps. Myself (Merin) and my wife (Gemma) have been here in Gryon, Switzerland for more than 5 years, managing and growing our backpackers hostel. We first arrived for a six month climbing trip and couldn't leave.

Our hostel is in an authentic Swiss Chalet and has both private and dormitory rooms along with many common areas to accommodate our guests. Many people stay here because of our close proximity to all of the mountain activities. During the winter months there is skiing/snowboarding at a nearby resort and during the summer there is hiking, climbing and mountain biking. We love and participate in nearly all of the activities the Swiss Alps have to offer.

Our hostel is a pretty relaxed backpackers hostel. Our guests are usually a mix outdoor enthusiasts, individuals traveling Europe, small groups and families. It is a pretty chill place. We are not a party hostel and the mountains are more of a draw to our guests th... more inside
