The camps are held in dormitory style accommodation and run over 4 days and 3 nights from a Monday until a Thursday. The Moore River camp requires the volunteer to stay the whole time from Monday 27th May until Thursday 30th May, and transport to the venue is available. Volunteers can stay the whole time in Coogee or choose to come in the morning and leave after the evening meal. The Coogee camp dates are 9th September until the 12th of September and the Coogee Family Camp is from the 7th October until the 10th October. (A working with children check is required for this camp)
Volunteers must be willing to participate and assist in varied roles such as assisting with the dishes, helping with activities and socialising with clients. One of our camps is a family camp and has the parent/s attending with their children aged between 6yrs and 12yrs old.
All meals and accommodation (shared) is provided.
It is important for the volunteer to have an interest in working with people with Multiple Sclerosis whom have varying degrees of ability and to have a fun and vivacious nature. Our camps are lots of fun and and also require a lot of effort and can be tiring for everyone who attends.
