The benefits of volunteering

To join Over The Wall as a volunteer is to join a warm, generous and fun community – all geared towards making a child’s camp experience among the most memorable times they’ve ever had. You’ll be given specialist training for camp and develop skills in organisation, project management, fun management and more. And with camps at numerous locations around the UK, and several different roles available we’ll definitely find you a place to belong. But don’t take our word for it – have a look at the case studies below.
