Giving your time. Sharing your skills.
Here are some of the ways you may be able to volunteer at The Oakes.
Join the Team (18+)
Each year we seek a team of 16 fun-loving young adults from all over the world to help us run every aspect of our camps! We can almost guarantee that you will grow in your faith and maturity as you pour into the lives of many others. You will develop skills and gain experience in a variety of fields from activity leading to catering to grounds-work. It’s also a ton of fun! Find out more.
Opportunities may also arise to join our permanent team when a specific role needs to be filled. If you have particular skills and are keen to serve at The Oakes long-term then get in touch to see if a suitable vacancy exists. Please note that our entire team are volunteers.
Help on Support Team (15+)
The support team are wonderful guys and girls who help out “behind the scenes” on a camp. Working alongside our resident team, they help prepare the food, wash the dishes, set up the activities, and keep the house looking spick-and-span, even when all the muddy campers come in from the ropes course! Find out more.
All help, skilled or unskilled, is very appreciated. Even between camps we may be in need of help in the kitchen, house, grounds and office. If you feel able to offer your time and skills, please let us know.
Each year, we try and set a couple of weeks aside (usually in July) specifically to do large maintenance projects and develop new activities, as well as decorate the house for the summer theme. If you are creative, have practical skills or are simply willing to help, that would be very much appreciated. Find out more.
