Description

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. Our Health Challenge & Siblings Camps are magical places where campers take part in fun activities including Sports and Games, Drama, Arts and Crafts and Discovery. Campers will be divided into teams based on their age groups of 8-10, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-17 years of age. We are looking for some amazing people to take on a role as Activity Leader at our Camps in 2022. Do you have a secret talent you’d love to run as an activity? We’ve previously had origami sessions and woodwork that we could not have run without our amazing volunteers coming forward to provide. Or do you have an interest in an activity area? E.g. Arts and Crafts, drama or sports? Join our activity team to run some fantastic sessions that have been planned by our activity team and will be taught to you so that you can confidently run them and help bring some fun and excitement to the sessions. Team Mates support campers throughout their time at Camp, building fantastic relationships whilst encouraging, inspiring and empowering campers as they complete camp activities. You will be part of a team of other amazing Volunteers, having fun and creating amazing experiences! Visit www.otw.org.uk to learn more and start your application

Organisation aims and objectives

Our Mission is to provide free of charge, life-changing camp experiences to children with serious health challenges and their families. Our Vision is to grow our organisation and services so that we can cater for every qualifying child and family member wishing to attend our Camps. Over The Wall provides free of charge residential activity camps for children and teenagers living with serious health challenges. We offer them and their families a week of experiences that are memorable, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound and we need a superb group of volunteers to make the magic happen.
