To support the running and development of Cudham Environmental Activities Centres and the Biblins Youth Campsite and the offer it makes to children and young people. We hope that the Volunteer placements will contribute and have a lasting impact on the site, whether that is through developing and facilitating activities for other young people, the creation of art or helping to develop our online presence. The work is varied, enjoyable and people-centred, with lots of opportunities to develop the role in line with the interests and skills of the volunteer. There are some routine campsite warden tasks that the role includes these range from welcoming groups, site maintenance, admin tasks and ensuring the site is kept clean and tidy by our visitors.
