About Camp Leader – Cahoots April School Holiday Programs (Perth)
Cahoots is a not for profit organisation that runs camps and programs all around WA for children and young people living with a disability or facing an exceptional challenge. Our camps are run by experienced facilitators but we rely on dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to make the experience safe and truly unforgettable for participants who attend.
As a camp leader you will be paired up with 2-3 children who you will be responsible for during the camp or program and the activities and outings that they do. All of our camps and programs are run by experienced facilitators but our leaders play an important role in developing meaningful relationships with the children, keeping them safe and helping them with everyday tasks.The camp leader is a volunteer position, however we believe that the experience is invaluable in equipping people to be part of the community. During camps and programs all of your costs will be covered. Camp leaders who show great initiative and responsibility are often asked to join our staff in a paid role as a facilitator in the future.
There are no specific skills required because Cahoots provides comprehensive and very valuable training and mentoring. We do however, require that all of our volunteers have a WORKINGWITH CHILDREN CHECK and a POLICE CLEARANCE (if you do not already have these documents, we can help you to get them) and that all volunteers attend one of our induction sessions:
Volunteering on our camps or programs is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people, have fun and get away from the stress of everyday life while making a positive contribution to the community and to the lives of people living with disability, their families, and careers.
