I've been thinking about doing something different for a work shift this year. Can anyone describe what Oasis is like?

I have experience as a peer support counselor.

I have done Oasis for a few years in a row now. I have not gotten a "client" yet. People are great there but there are so many of us working that usually only 1 or 2 of the bunch gets to talk with someone. Otherwise you just sit and talk with the others working. So it is a bit of a do nothing workshift, but folks are super nice.

I have done a work shift at Oasis every year. Most the time you 'chat with fellow shifters, the workers and tidy and sweep the Oasis tent, I have had one client. They will give you instructions but basically you are an ear only. Empathy and letting them know we are there at Oasis anytime if they need to talk.
