Volunteer Leader Opportunities at Michaela Foundation Summer Camp 2016 in St. Patrick’s Primary School, Maghera

Thursday February 18th 2016

St. Patrick’s Primary School will host our Maghera Camp for the fourth consecutive year in 2016.

Inspire others this summer as a Michaela Foundation Summer Camp Volunteer! Support young girls in your local community, help them grow in confidence and self-esteem, whilst sharing your skills and enhancing your CV.

From 11th July – 15th July 2016, a team of up to 28 volunteers will deliver a host of inspiring activities to girls aged 11-13, centred on Michaela Foundation’s life without limits ethos in the primary school campus. Each day the leaders will deliver activities in Fun, Faith, Fashion, Well Being and Fáilte, with the ultimate aim of not only giving the participating Campettes a week to remember but also helping them grow in self-esteem and confidence.

Volunteering at Camp is a perfect opportunity to enhance a CV, make new friends and have fun! Furthermore, each volunteer will also receive an exclusive Michaela Foundation Camp jersey from O’Neill’s.

Activity specific training will be provided for all voluntary leaders. First aid and child protection training will also be provided for all volunteers.

The Maghera Camp is one of 20 Camps that will take place in 2016, a year which marks Michaela Foundation’s 5th anniversary. The growth of the Michaela Foundation Summer Camps would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of hundreds of inspirational volunteers who share their skills, enthusiasm and time to make each Michaela Foundation camp a unique experience for so many young people.

Whilst volunteering at Camp leaders not only make a real difference to the lives of the Campettes but they get a lot out of the experience too.

“It was definitely one of the best weeks of my life, I met so many new people and have been recommending the camp to every parent I meet, I keep telling them that it is completely different from any other regular summer camp, it develops both campettes and volunteers as people” 2015 Summer Camp Voluntary Leader.

Further information on the volunteering roles and responsibilities can be found here. In the past, Michaela Foundation has been oversubscribed with applications.
