    We need lots of adult volunteer helpers in addition to the camp's paid instructors for the day to run all the activities we want. Register with a Supervisor (Free) ticket to sign up as a volunteer as well as booking your group of participants.

    We hope to run 5-7 activities. We will make arrangements so volunteer parents will have their kids supervised during training and duties.

    We will be divided into groups of 10-12 (please let us know if you have a group preference with another family). Each activity will be on one hour rotation.
