Attention Message

Kidz Camp is a three day residential holiday for primary school children that takes place during the first week of the university Easter vacation. The holiday includes lots of fun and educational activities which help to improve the children’s social development, encourage independence and build self-esteem. Most of the children attending Kidz Camp would not otherwise have this opportunity and it is often the first time they've spent a night away from their families.

Requirements
Block 4 text

Kidz Camp is a popular project and sometimes volunteer places are competitive. We are looking for committed and enthusiastic volunteers who regularly attend meetings and activities, contribute ideas and work well with others. Experience of working with children, although useful, is not necessary.

All volunteers will be required to:

  • Complete safeguarding training
  • Complete an Enhanced criminal background check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
  • In addition, if you have lived outside of the UK for more than 6 months in the past 5 years you need to obtain a criminal record check from the country you lived in. This is commonly referred to as a Certificate of Good Conduct’

For more information visit our DBS page.
