Y Camping is always looking for suitable volunteers to assist us in empowering young people through participation in outdoor activities, experiences and camps.


It takes a small army to keep our programs running and our volunteers are the most important people involved. We have a endless array of "jobs" that we require assistance with including:

  • Office Administration - in the office at any time!
  • Camp Cooks
  • Kitchen Assistants
  • Group Leaders
  • Assistant Group Leaders
  • General Camp Helpers
  • Drivers (Car, Mini Van, 4WD, Bus)
  • Specialist Activity Staff
  • Arts and Craft gurus
  • and many more!

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and age is definitely not a barrier! Some of our current volunteers are uni students, parents, teachers and ex teachers, electricians, call centre workers, delivery drivers, managers, youth workers, social work students, lifeguards, retail employees, waitresses, retiree's and so many more!

What you need is:

  • A desire to see young people succeed and be happy
  • A willingness to work as part of a team who focus on safety, child protection and listening to children's voice
  • The ability to be a positive role model for young people from diverse backgrounds
  • And most of all the craziness to help create positive memories that last a lifetime - for everyone involved!
  • National Criminal History Record Check (we can help with this one!)
  • DCSI Working with Children Screening (we can help with this one!)
  • Attend volunteer training and induction
