Can I volunteer to be part of the team? 

We are still looking for volunteers in a variety of areas.

Firstly, we need some volunteers to man the folk supply stall, and preferably someone to manage it on camp. This is a great way to gain experience in retail/cash-handling/management. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy please email vcamp@woodcraft.org.uk. 

We need volunteers to help out with site services, such as the rubbish and toilets, at camp. If you are interested in this, please email production@venturercamp.org.uk

We are also looking for stewards to ensure the site is safe for our venturers. You will get to meet lots of great people, drink lots of tea and eat lots of biscuits! Sign up here:
