Description

Our Media Volunteers are hugely important. Through photographs they record the journey of our Campers, capturing their achievements and the magic moments they experience whilst participating in Camp activities. Campers will be able to look back on these photos & reflect on how they have developed new skills & achieved things they never thought they were capable of. This is an essential stage of our Camp model ‘Therapeutic Recreation’ (please see website for more info)
As Media Volunteer you will be photographing Campers as they perform a wide range of activities including Drama, Music, Arts/Crafts, Discovery, Sports & Games. You will then create a slideshow of the photos you have collected which will be displayed to all Campers at the end of the week. You will be fully briefed before Camp begins about what is required of you, & ongoing training & support is provided throughout Camp.
This is an excellent opportunity for budding Photographers to gain experience in a dynamic environment & work with a reputable national organisation. For more info & a photo gallery (which gives a good taste of Camp life) please visit our website: www.otw.org.uk
To be a Camp Recorder you do not have to be a professional Photographer, nor do you need experience of working with children as we welcome a diverse range of previous experience. You will however need your own camera. In return, as a Volunteer you will:
•Participate in a unique & unforgettable experience.
•Work for a brilliant cause with a reputable national org.
•Meet fantastic new people/make friends

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.
