When: NOW – Perpetual, we need hosts all year round (minimum 1 month contract)

Description: A host is a general term for travellers or work experience seekers who want to come and stay at our camp for free in exchange for helping out with general duties.

Skills and experience favoured:

  • Happy Helpful people for general duties and looking after guests
  • Tradespeople, i.e. carpenters, builders etc. (we are always building new things like bunk beds or a new ping pong table)

VIP treatment at the best bar in Sri Lanka. Hours: We generally work about 5 hours a day 5 days a week. That gives us plenty of time to surf, party and enjoy other activities. The work is not hard or strict and we prefer self-motivated people who are ready to embrace Elsewhere values and philosophies.
