Located south of the Dead Sea, Shkedi’s CampLodge is a place for hosting backpackers, families and small groups in a remote desert village. Travelers at the camplodge are bound to have a unique experience in a place that cherishes and compliments nature and the beautiful atmosphere of the desert. The camplodge offers private wooden cabins and stylish bungalows/lodges (dorms & private), all built and designed by the owner Gil. In the camplodge you can also find clean, roomy and well designed toilets & washrooms (with hot showers), several barbeque grills, seating & dining areas under the acacia trees and an equipped kitchen with a cooking stove and refrigerators for storing your food and drink. At the end of a full traveling day, our guests can have a cup of tea by the central bonfire, or enjoy a cold beer in our desert bar. Free WiFi is available within the camplodge as well. In addition to lodging, we also offer guided Jeep tours in an air-conditioned desert vehicle, to take you to those magical places you will not find on the map or be able to reach with a standard set of wheels. Staying at the campLodge, you have easy access to several exciting sites and attractions (for hiking or riding). We are looking for volunteers to help in the daily work of the camplodge, from hosting travelers, setting the bonfire, cleaning and arranging the place, helping in fixing malfunctions and anything else needed in the daily operations. We are looking for hard working people who love meeting people from all over the world, and appreciate life close to nature. The volunteers work 6 days a week at various hours and are expected to stay for a minimum of one month. You will get free accommodation (2 people per room) next to the camplodge in the village itself, and get some pocket money for purchasing food ingredients for youself. You will enjoy free WIFI in the camplodge as well as join jeep tours and other activities offered in the camplodge or in Neot Hakikar village.

We are Agata and Piotr. I graduated archeology last year, and Piotr is a geology student.
We've read your offer with big interrset, because Israel is our travel destination from the long time. And your place looks so beautifull! We are both people, who enjoy staying close to the nature. We love mountainwalking, and travel whenever we have free time. That is why we decided to apply for the job, you offer.
We are free from middle of July, and could stay till the end of August, maybe also for September. We are both hardworking, and have experience in working as a team, once we volunteered in archeological excavations together.
We attach our CV's, and hope to hear from you.
