Camas Volunteer

Organisation: Iona Community

NEEDED: Volunteers to work 2020 season at Camas on the Wild West of Scotland!

Camas is a unique outdoor centre offering weekly residential programmes. Based in a wild and beautiful isolated bay in South West Mull, right next to the Hebridean Sea and white sand beaches with activities on our doorstep. We provide nurturing outdoor experiences and a sense of community for young people from some of the UK’s most disadvantaged areas. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to give things a go, prepared to live in a very close-knit community and who can offer real hospitality and warmth to centre guests.

What it involves:

  • Living and working together as part of a team to provide a welcoming, safe and wonderful place for groups coming to Camas
  • Leading and assisting adventurous outdoor activities such as climbing, kayaking, wild camping, and coasteering
  • Working in the organic garden to help produce lots of fresh vegetables and salads
  • Tending to the newly planted native woodland
  • Doing maintenance jobs to help keep the buildings and surroundings in good condition
  • Enabling young people to explore and discover a relationship with nature and the world around them
  • An off-grid simple lifestyle
  • Facilitating space with groups to reflect & make meaning together from our shared & individual experiences

We offer you:

Training and support

  • 1 ½ days off at the weekend plus a half-day off during the week
  • 2 weeks holiday plus £ 75-holiday allowance (3 weeks for those volunteering over the full season)
  • £30 allowance a week, full board and lodging including own room or wooden hut
  • Individual experiences

When is it?  

  • Longer-term volunteers – late March to mid-October
  • Shorter-term volunteers – mid-April to early September

(please note it is essential for volunteers to be available for staff training from 12 April to 25th April)
