A wildcamping experience in Bulgaria
Wildcamping exchange in Bulgaria – We have a small, wild and friendly camping farm in western Bulgaria. It’s situated at the edge of our small village and we’re all about keeping it natural. Work would be varied depending on what projects we have up our sleeves at the moment, but will mostly include helping us maintain the facilities, gardening, and most importantly being here to welcome and socialize with guests when we can’t.
There will be plenty of time for relaxing and exploring the area and this position is ideal for those who love being outdoors and dream of a summer of camping.
Exploring, stargazing, campfires, sunsets!
Our 1st volunteers will also have the unique opportunity to establish our volunteer campsite adding to it their own special flare.
We value creativity and friendly attitudes. We would also be excited about someone with ideas to add. Ideally, we would like to get to know our volunteers and have them spend at least one month with us or better yet the whole summer. Details are very negotiable. If this sounds like something you may be interested in please feel free to reach out to me and we can talk.
