Join the Team

Camp Narnia has a diverse team of volunteers and staff who make the camp experience what it is.  Without our dedicated team of adults, we wouldn’t be able to offer the amazing program our campers have come to love.

The majority of camp staff are volunteers. There are many reasons to volunteer your time at our camp; the staff experience is in its own way as educational, transformative and fun as that of being a camper.  Camp Narnia staff all receive a full week of training each year to prepare them for the rigours of running our camp, and refresh their knowledge of the stories, activities and safety procedures.

See below the current vacant roles at Camp Narnia, and feel free to email campnarnia@gmail.com if you feel you have skills and experience you’d like to share with us.

Male Counselor

We’re looking for up to two new Male Counselors to join the team at camp!  While having completed our LIP program for one or two years is a plus, it is not required to join the team.  Why join?  Camp Narnia is an amazing place to gain experience working with children while having an amazing summer time and being part of a fantastic team.

Leaders In Progress (LIP)

Interested in working with children? Looking for a chance to prove yourself and get references for work, or scholarships? Looking for volunteer hours for school credit, Duke of Edinburgh, or just because you want to help? We run a training program for 16-18 year olds that may be for you!

Leaders in Progress (LIPs) are our future staff; highly valued members of the team who are learning to be Camp Narnia staff. The LIP Program gives young people looking for work experience the chance to learn from our professional staff team, and get hands on experience leading groups of children in activities, and taking the lead on camp programs.

While the LIP program is a lot of fun, it is also lots of hard work. Our young volunteers get many of the heavy tasks that need doing to run a camp, like cleaning dishes, scrubbing bathrooms, and moving program supplies around the property. Those tasks are balanced by a chance to shadow counselors in their work, play games with the campers, supervise younger campers during quiet time, and a few special LIP programs organised just for them.

Interested? Get in touch with your questions at campnarnia@gmail.com. LIP applications for Summer 2017 will be available on March 1st.
