Would you like to help inspire children about the fabulous nature and wildlife that can be found in Devon?

A Touch of the Wild run exciting activities for all ages in the woods on the edge of Exeter. We are looking for volunteers to help at our holiday club this summer 13th - 29th August.

Volunteers will be supporting the Club leaders to deliver fun days in the woods for children aged 5-13 years, packed with opportunities to take part and learn some amazing skills.

Volunteers will need some experience of working with children or young people or feel confident in supporting groups of children in nature based activities. If you are interested in delivering outdoor learning, have enthusiasm, dedication and excellent communication skills this is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience.

In house training will be provided with opportunities to learn bushcraft, green woodwork, plant ID and many more skills. A love of the great outdoors and own transport is essential!

Volunteers working with vulnerable adults or children will need to take a DBS check (formerly CRB) that will be paid for by A Touch of the Wild.

Volunteers are not required to make a commitment to regular days a week, although this would be helpful.

Contact us for information and application form.
