Operation Girder

Operation Girder is an the annual summer residential offered by Perceptions challenged.

This is a volunteer opportunity that you will receive no pay for, but there will be some “perks”.

For those of you that are new to the concept, we help to support The Seventh Day Adventist Church in holding their annual event for young people, called a Pathfinder Camporee. At this event we usually help to supervise activities for and work with, up to around 750 young people aged between 12 to 19 and their adult supervision teams.

On some occasions, like when it is a National event, there may be up to 1200 people there. Don’t worry!!! There will be other young people there that will also be volunteering like yourself but at Perceptionschallenged.co.uk  we like to think that we are the best! So… if you think that you are good enough to be one of the best… please sign up now!!!

You will be required to:

  1. Undergo a CRB/ DBS check
  2. Supervise activities and interact with other young people.
  3. Be a Peer mentor.
  4. Interact with the General Staff (The Bosses)
  5. Show initiative!
