  • Descripción


    Our centre is scout & outdoor centre, opened for scouts and general public. We're thrilled to offer a possibility to volunteer, for people who want to experience a scout life, participate in programs, explore nature and to develop or new skills.

    If you are interested in gaining experience as a youth worker, in idyllic location in the nature surrounded by the Slovenian largest lake, lake Bohinj, this is an excellent opportunity for you.

    Our centre offers adventurous programs for scouts, groups and other individuals from all over the world. Since our centre has been growing over the years, we need some extra help from 15th May until 30th September. We will be delighted to host volunteers who are at least 18 years old.

    We have 4 permanent staff members in the centre and volunteers when needed. We would like to enhance our centre's vibe, so we are looking for foreign volunteers - scouts and non-scouts. We believe this interchange of experience is very positive for young people and also for our center.

    We need volunteers' help with executing programs for guests, so you would get a lot of experience with working with people, mostly youth and their leaders. We will also need your help with general maintenance & cleaning around the camp. Some days are busier than others, but if you would like, you will have a lot of time to explore gorgeous nature, enjoy lake Bohinj and even go for a trip across Gorenjska area and Slovenia in general.

    As a volunteer in our centre, you will:
    - help in a team of volunteers, especially on adventurous programs that we offer,
    - have a mentor,
    - assist with basic operations of the centre (e.g. cleaning, maintenance of the camp),
    - have an opportunity to develop lifelong friendships,
    - have support from permanent staff in planning and delivering personal projects,
    - have flexible days off as agreed.

    Full board and lodging will be provided (in the chalet or in a tent). You will also be able to use free of charge WiFi, laundry facilities, linen, sports equipment (bikes, canoes) and participate in our adventurous programs.

    What are we looking for?
    - Commitment, diligence, desire for personal growth and progression,
    - understanding of the scout way of life, values and customs (it is not obligated to be a scout!)
    - knowledge of scouting games and programs is a plus, but not a must!
