Work
In a Camp we all work together!

There are 2 basic duties - kitchen and cleaning.
We will have a chef who will need 4 assistants for each meal,
so its 12 people a day, about 2 hours.

Also we need 4 people a day for taking care of the studios - cleaning floor, throwing the garbage away,
keeping an eye on snack station

Due to the 60 people in a camp,
it seems like 2 hours of work once in 3 days.
Proactive position is highly appreciated :)
