Volunteer story - Zak

Name: Zak

Interests: Sports, cooking, camping, being outdoors.

When did you join People Outdoors as a Volunteer and why?

I became a volunteer at the end of 2021. I had heard many great things about People Outdoors and I thought I would give it a go. I love to empower and support others. Camp is a wonderful environment where campers can be themselves.

What are your favourite activities on camp?

My favourite activity is any of the water activities. I love to go canoeing

What is your favourite memory of camp you have made so far?

I think my favourite camp memory would be when we went canoeing and we accidentally fell in. We all had great time splashing around as it was a warm day.

What would you say to people interested in volunteering with People Outdoors?

Give it go. People Outdoors is a great community. Camp is so much fun and very rewarding.
