Reasons to join us

We would love your help realising our mission of making camping accessible, such that disabled women (18 and over) can experience the simple pleasures of camping under canvas on an idyllic campsite on the edge of Farnham in Surrey.

We can think of at least 6 good reasons why you might want to join us:

  • If you love camping, the great outdoors and adventures
  • If you believe that giving is part of living and you’d like to volunteer
  • If you are seeking to make new friends with like-minded people
  • If you would like to share your experience and ideas
  • If you want to build new skills and abilities
  • If you have an interest in accessibility and enabling others to join in fully

If one or more of these applies to you – maybe you should apply to us.

Volunteering is good for your soul!

Volunteering at Pathfinders Camp will provide a healthy boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. You will be doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer at Pathfinders Camp will also give you a sense of pride and identity.

Enhance your CV

How about if your CV said:

I have been volunteering with Pathfinders Camp (Woodlarks) (charity 1171466), providing an annual camping holiday for disabled adult women. As a volunteer, I provide one-to-one care to someone for the whole week. The care required ranges from chatting, encouraging, motivating, enabling participation, and ensuring daily hygiene requirements are achieved to providing full personal care, including feeding, toileting, bathing and dressing. I take great pride in being able to appreciate what others need, solving the challenges and problems that may arise, and communicating with a broad cross-section of abilities.

That will get your CV noticed and give you something exciting to talk about at interviews!
