Young volunteers needed for Summer Camp

This summer a group of 35 young people will go on a summer camp to Meggernie Scout Adventure Centre in Glen Lyon for a week of activities and adventure.

Unlike most Scouts, these young people need some support so they can fully take part in all the activities. That’s where we’re looking for enthusiastic Explorer Scouts or other young people aged 14 to 18 to join us!

You’ll take part in all the activities too, but at the same time you’ll be helping one of the young people to also take part. You’ll work as part of a Patrol with five or six other Explorers and a team of experienced leaders so you don’t need to have any previous experience working with disabled people.

We’re looking for young people who are enthusiastic, patient and have an interest in helping others. We’ll provide some training for all the rest! More than half of our volunteers are aged 14 to 18 so you’ll be part of a team very similar to you.

This is a particularly good opportunity for anyone completing Duke of Edinburgh Gold (it will count as your Residential Experience) or for anyone with an interest in studying medicine, nursing, teaching or anything similar.

The dates are Saturday 29th June (leaving from Glasgow in the morning) back on Saturday 6th July. The fee for the week is £90 but this can be reduced if anyone has any difficulty paying. The camp will be at Meggernie near Aberfeldy with day trips to nearby cities and a full programme across the week.

Full details are available from Michael Shanks by emailing michael@glasgowdisabledscouts.org. Even if you’re not sure if it’s for you but want to find out more please get in touch!
