OPP OF THE DAY: Camp Team Mate – Over The Wall (Staffordshire)

Over The Wall is a charity that helps children, young people and their families, living in the UK, reach beyond the boundaries of their health challenges to discover a world of mischief, magic and new possibilities. We do this by providing free of charge, transformative activity camps throughout the UK. Teammates are an essential part of camp, supporting campers throughout their time at Camp, building fantastic relationships whilst encouraging and inspiring and empowering campers as they complete camp activities. Campers will be divided into teams based on the age groups of 8-10, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-17. You will be part of a team of other amazing Volunteers supporting Campers in a wide range of activities, including Archery, Zip Wire, Rock Climbing, Arts and Crafts, Discovery, Sports and Games and encouraging them to reflect on what they have achieved in evening Cabin Chats. You will also look after the day-time and night-time needs of the Campers in their accommodation. Training is provided both before and at camp to ensure you have all the information you need for camp to be a great experience for you and the campers.
