Wintercamp wouldn’t happen without a large number of volunteers. If you would like to help make this event happen, please check back here in Summer 2019 and we’ll have a link for you to sign up as a volunteer.

Please sign up for ‘Wintercamp at Gilwell Park’ if you would like to be based in London or ‘Wintercamp at Hawkhirst’ if you are interested in volunteering in Northumberland.

What can I expect?

All staff (made up of specialist activity instructors and a general service team from all over the UK and parts of Europe) are expected to help out with delivering the event.

This can mean anything from helping with coach parking through to helping manage queues at a popular activity.

Food is provided free of charge and accommodation is either indoors or in tents – indoor accommodation is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis.

If you are camping, please bring your own tent, and for both indoor and camping options, please ensure you bring your own bedding.

As the event has experienced some varied weather in the past, please make sure you have sufficient waterproof clothing and enough changes of clothes.

Staff registering may also be asked to fill in a Criminal Records Bureau form. All online registrations will be confirmed by email and we will send additional information in early December prior to the event.
