Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:
We are currently looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to join us on our action packed residential Summer Camp. On the camp you will be supporting one of our members with a disability to have a holiday they won’t forget.
On the camp you and two fellow volunteers will support one of our members with a learning disability or autism for the 8 days. You’ll support and encourage them to take part in lots of exciting activities such as; camp fires, treasure trails, swimming, night time activities, day trips to the seaside and much more. You’ll also help our members with their day-to-day routines and preparing our meals.
Not only is it a week full of fun and games for you and our members, you are a vital part in supporting them to develop their social skills in a day to day environment and of course, a fantastic holiday for our members!
