January Outdoor Education camp -support role

Recreation Short Term Canterbury

About this opportunity

Learn Active runs outdoor education programmes for people with intellectual disabilities in Canterbury.
We are seeking volunteers to help support our students while away on camp from:
Wednesday 23rd to Friday 25th January.
This trip is in Peel Forest and our main activity is Geocaching (finding hidden treasures on walking tracks) This trip will include sleeping 2 nights in a tent, but there are hot showers and facilities.
This trip is 3 days and 2 night away with all your expenses covered (eg food, accommodation etc). And we can help supply you with the right gear needed.
You would be helping to support the students while away on the trip with the activities, (no experience needed), down time, dinner time, games and lots of fun.
You would start around 8.30am Wednesday and finish around 4.00pm the Friday from Cashmere, Christchurch.

All our programmes are with people with intellectual disabilities from 15-35 years old. They are a mixture of different abilities who require different levels of help and attention. As volunteers you would be helping them to participate in the activities and be social and have fun with them while supervising and keeping them safe.
We have our main instructors who run the programmes and the volunteers are to support them with the students, so you will have heaps of help and support while with us.
