Volunteer Roles: Ages 18+

Teammates are an essential part of camp, supporting campers throughout their time at Camp, building fantastic relationships whilst encouraging and inspiring and empowering campers as they complete camp activities. Campers will be divided into teams based on the age groups of 8-10, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-17. 

Or do you have an interest in an activity area? E.g. Arts and Crafts, drama or sports? Join our activity team to run some fantastic sessions that have been planned by our activity team and will be taught to you so that you can confidently run them and help bring some fun and excitement to the sessions.

We’re looking for enthusiastic and fun-loving volunteers to capture the moments of mischief and magic at our residential activity camps for children and young people with serious illness.  

Work with a team of volunteers to photograph the campers having fun and participating in activities. Each media volunteer will be assigned to a team of volunteers and campers to capture footage throughout camp. This opportunity is flexible and suitable for amateur photographers as well as those looking to build their portfolios and gain experience, over either week-long or weekend periods.

Our Safeguarding Officers are an extremely important part of Camp as they act as ambassadors of our Safeguarding policy, helping to ensure the mutual protection of Campers, Volunteers and Staff.  

Your role would be to be available to discuss and advise the Over The Wall safeguarding staff on any potential concerns which have been raised. Whilst you will not be responsible for contacting the appropriate authorities to investigate concerns, you will be vital in ensuring the correct channels are made aware of any Safeguarding breaches. Throughout Camp you will also need to be vigilant and observant to ensure Safeguarding procedures are in place and being followed. 

Nurses, doctors and paramedics have a critical role to play at an Over The Wall Camp, to provide safe and effective care, whilst joining in the mischief and magic of camp. Can you help?
