Part-Time Volunteering Program 2021:

May, June, July, September: £600 per month.

(Kids under 14: £250, Teens under 18: £350)

Become the beating heart of the camp, live, breathe, learn, work, enjoy and celebrate in full participation with the tribe! 

 

You will be encouraged to contribute your own unique energy, enthusiasm and passion to the projects you resonate with, with the opportunity to learn new skills through work experience whilst living as an off grid community.

Our rhythm here at Spirit Horse is flexible and relaxed, yet hands on. A balance between showing initiative to get involved organically where and when needed, whilst honoring your own flow and living in beauty on the wild land.

We are not famous for schedules and time takes on its own magic form in the valley, but as a guide line, we would expect about 3h work per day from our tribe members. But be warned, you might easily find yourself banging nails or chopping broccoli until sun set just because you were having fun doing it together with the humans.

Building and carpentry:

Our village of yurts and roundhouses always provides building work, from humble mending of the compost toilet after a storm, to completing one of the biggest Celtic roundhouses in Britain, including a vast shingle roof from forest to finished masterpiece and other unique structures.

 

Cooking:

Help prepare our delicious communal meals in our wild off grid kitchen, chopping vegetables, learning to make the soups, curries, bread and chapatis and other funky recipes, washing up pots and pans, carrying water, or sorting out tea for the builders. They say the kitchen is the heart of the camp, full of challenges as well as laughter.​

 

General running of the camp

Shaking the dust off gorgeous Indian rugs in the Red Temple after a wild night of storytelling, putting the kettle on, washing up your own plate, lighting up candles in dark corners, painting a sign, giving a tour to first timers, making masks with the children, or being the shoulder to cry on when life happens, there is always sacred and odd invisible jobs to keep holy and busy.

 

Off grid community living

Sitting around the fire, playing music, chatting, laughing, drinking tea, arguing, resolving, and drinking more tea.

Community life can be poetic and beautiful, but also challenging, especially when the Welsh weather is in a cheeky mood, come experiment with us.

We also encourage you to share your offerings and skills with the tribe, if you wanna offer a short workshop, yoga class, open mic, kids workshop, etc, very welcome.

Bookings and Cancellations Policy

 

It is really helpful for us when running courses if you book in advance.

If we have to cancel an event, we will provide you a full refund without question.
If you need to cancel your booking, you can carry the value of your booking over to another event (subject to availability) or pay £100 admin fee.

 

We are working as flexibly as possible to make some amazing experiences work within the restrictions, and spaces are limited. In light of this, we ask that you commit to coming to Spirit Horse when you book to avoid disappointment for others who would like to come and unnecessary admin fees.
