Programme Volunteers

At the camps our Programme Volunteers work with a group of up to 10 young people alongside two volunteering colleagues and an activity instructor. They take part in the activities with their group, and are involved in ensuring the welfare and organisation of the young people, helping them to get the most out of their time on our programme.  From encouraging them to try an activity, supporting their social relationships and promoting team work, to ensuring they have their packed lunch and get to the activity on time, Programme Volunteers are essential to our programme.


  • Applicants must be aged over 18 years old
  • Applicants will need to undertake an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check
  • Applicants will be required to provide two references

Programme Volunteers need to be enthusiastic, hardworking and willing to get involved in a wide range of activities. They should be responsible individuals and able to act as positive role models. Volunteers need to be committed to helping young people have a fun and enjoyable time in a safe environment.

Previous experience of working with young people or of outdoor activities would be beneficial, but is not essential.  No formal qualifications are required.


Training for our Programme Volunteers is offered at a weekend course held in the Brecon Beacons; accommodation and food is provided.

Wherever possible new volunteers should attend this course, although alternative arrangements may be available.  We also offer ongoing training opportunities that address particular aspects of the role.
