The Camas Activity Worker’s role is to have significant input into quality assurance and health and safety aspects of the centre’s outdoor activities. This includes significant time delivering outdoor activities to visiting groups, these include:
kayaking, coasteering, wild swimming and raft-building
wild camping and hillwalking
wide games and indoor team-building activities
A large proportion of the time will be spent leading these activities, while supporting other resident staff and volunteers to contribute fully to the delivery of the activities.
As a Camas Resident, you will also be involved in the overall running of the Camas Centre, getting involved in cooking, cleaning, gardening and supporting guests.
Groups come to Camas for a week at a time, Monday night to Saturday morning. These include youth groups from Scotland, the rest of the UK and further afield. We also have groups from universities, schools, churches and community projects, also supporting groups of vulnerable adults. There are a few weeks open to individuals to come and experience Camas on either a facilitated week inspired by our surroundings, or for one of our working holiday weeks.
Each day at Camas follows a simple rhythm of communal meals, shared chores (otherwise known as GSDs – Get Stuff Done), reflections, outdoor and indoor activities, games, gardening and lots of cups of tea. After a busy day we gather in the common room by candlelight to play games, listen to music, drink hot chocolate, reflect on the day together as we wind down before bed.
