Itatalo is located in beautiful archipelago of Kustavi near Turku in western Finland, about 150 km from Helsinki.

The farm is by the sea so sauna and swimming is available.

The work in our camps is very often manual like painting, renovating, organising activities or landscaping/gardening; but one of the main aims of the camps is to encourage and increase intercultural learning between the volunteers and the hosting community. No special skills are required. Most camps are arranged in small communities in beautiful Finnish countryside.
