“Volunteering with Over The Wall is totally brilliant. It’s the best week of the year. I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing charity. It’s so good I’d almost be willing to pay to come and Volunteer!”
From taking part in team challenges (bright orange face paint, anyone?) to encouraging a Camper to reach the top of a climbing wall, Team Mates are an essential part of Camp. They help to support, guide, inspire and empower our Campers to have fun and increase their confidence.
Campers will be divided into teams before they arrive based on the age groups of 8-10, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-17 years of age. As a Team Mate, you will be assigned one of these teams and throughout Camp you will build amazing 1:1 relationships with your team of Campers on a daily basis. Your role is to support and encourage the Campers whilst working as a team with your fellow Volunteers.
Throughout Camp you will enthusiastically support Campers in a wide range of activities, including Drama, Music, Arts and Crafts, Discovery, Sports and Games, encouraging them to reflect on what they have achieved.
We are looking for Team Mates who:
- Are positive and supportive
- Are energetic and enthusiastic
- Possess excellent communications skills
- Can work effectively as part of a team
- Are reliable and dependable
- Have a sense of fun!
