COULD you lead – or feed – a team of volunteers on a week-long restoration holiday?


Canal Camps are volunteer working holidays to help canal restoration. They offer the chance to learn traditional skills such as bricklaying and stonework – and more modern techniques such as piling, concreting or even how to operate machinery like excavators or dumpers.Every year, IWA’s Waterway Recovery Group runs between 16-20 Summer Canal Camps.

This means we need to find more than 60 volunteer Canal Camp leaders and assistant leaders each year. The main role of the leadership teams is to make sure the Canal Camp is a fun, well planned and safe experience… and that the volunteers are fed!

Waterway Recovery Group has been supporting canal restoration across Britain for more than 50 years, so you’ll be in safe hands. You will receive ongoing support and resources for this rewarding role.If it sounds like a challenge you would enjoy, find out more at waterways.org.uk/leadershiptraining
