Apply to Volunteer


Come and join The Camp Bubble!

The Volunteer Application Process:

  • Step One – Online Application Form:

The first step is to fill out a 2017 Volunteer application formWe want to know all about you, why you’d like to apply and what role you’d like to have at Camp. You will also be asked to provide details of 3 references.

  • Step Two – Interview:

If your online application is successful, we will invite you to a group interview day (which is not as scary as it sounds!) We run interview days right across the UK in places such as Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, London and Southampton.  At the interview you will be able to find out more about Over The Wall and we also require you to complete a DBS Police check.  

  • Step Three – References & DBS Check:

Following success at the interview stage and suitable DBS clearance, we will contact the references you provided on your application form. 

  • Step Four – A place at Camp!

Congratulations, we’ll be offering you a place to Volunteer at Camp!


  • You must be 18 years or over on 1st January 2017 to apply to Volunteer.
  • Admin Fee: There will be a one-off £30 admin fee to cover vetting and interview costs which will be taken on the interview day. If you are in receipt of benefits or low income but would still like to volunteer with Over The Wall, please contact  Zoe to discuss this admin fee.
