“Pathfinders camp is somewhere you will find kindness in abundance, where strangers become friends in the blink of an eye and could give you one of the most rewarding and life changing experiences you might have.

If you enjoy camping and being outdoors, and want to enable a disabled lady the opportunity to experience a camping holiday, then Pathfinders could be for you.  We are always looking for female volunteer carers to help facilitate this aged 18 plus (although we do take some helpers from the age of 17).

Our aim is not to do for, but to do with, to enable all participants to takepart in as much of camp life as possible.  Part of our ethos is that everyone who attends camp (helper, camper or crew), pay the same fee, which we believe puts us all on a level when we are at camp.  Your background is not important, you will get the opportunity to meet people from all sorts of backgrounds, all gathering in the same place, for one common aim – to provide an outdoor holiday, whatever the weather, to make the best of the time we have together and have a fantastic week.

Pathfinders can be a fantastic experience if you are thinking of entering a career in medicine, physiotherapy, health and social care, teaching, occupational therapy and many others.  It can also provide valuable life experience and is a great line for you to have on your CV whatever field of work you choose to go into.

In the past, helpers have used their time with us towards their Queen’s Guide or Queen’s Scout awards.  Previously we have been used for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award residential section, however we are not yet an Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for this.

We really hope you will choose to join us at Pathfinders and make a difference to both your life and to the life of everyone who joins us.”
