Volunteers will undergo a casual interview and will be supported throughout the application process. Once on board, volunteers will be invited to attend virtual sessions where they will be introduced to their teams and ask any questions they may have. Volunteers will have full training prior to camp including Behaviour Support, Safeguarding and Basic Medical Training. When allocated a team at camp, volunteers will be placed with other extremely experienced volunteers who can offer support and help with anything they are unsure about. Staff will also be very present at camp and before camp.
This opportunity does not require any experience, however you would benefit if you had an interest in making a positive impact in young peoples lives, particularly when affected by health challenges.

Over The Wall is a charity that helps children, young people and their families, living in the UK, reach beyond the boundaries of their health challenges to discover a world of mischief, magic and new possibilities. We do this by providing free of charge, transformative activity camps throughout the UK.

Teammates are an essential part of the 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. You will be part of a team of other amazing Volunteers supporting Campers in a wide range of activities, including Archery, Arts and Crafts, Discovery, Sports and Games and encouraging them to reflect on what they have achieved in the evening Cabin Chats. You will also look after the daytime and night-time needs of the Campers in their accommodation. Training is provided both before and at camp to ensure you have all the information you need for the camp to be a great experience for you and the campers.
