How to Volunteer with People Outdoors:

People Outdoors utilises the services of many dedicated volunteers and staff to ensure that our programs maintain a high standard. Recruitment of volunteers is a constant and ongoing process. As the number of different programs that we offer increase, so does our need for more volunteers!

We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to volunteer with People Outdoors. Volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age and willing to offer support to a variety of individuals who participate in the programs run by People Outdoors.

People Outdoors predominantly run camping programs for people with a disability aged 6 to adulthood.

Weekend camps are conducted on a regular basis, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. Groups stay in bunkhouse accommodation at accredited Australian Camps Association member campsites and all transport, accommodation and meal costs are covered for volunteers.

These weekend camps form the majority of our workload, but there are other program options for volunteers to select from such as day activities and school holiday camps.

Volunteers work on a one-to-one basis with campers.  Each camp or day activity has an experienced Program Leader in attendance and a People Outdoors staff member is always ‘on-call’ for the duration of the camp/activity.

Day to Day Duties of a Volunteer on Camp:

  • providing support for their campers to participate in recreation activities safely,
  • ensuring social interaction takes place between campers,
  • assisting campers with personal care requirements as necessary,
  • and – have fun!

People Outdoors provides training for volunteers, as well as a pre-camp information session where the campers’ needs are discussed. Volunteers are required to contact their camper prior to camp.
