Volunteering at Barretstown
Volunteering at Barretstown is a truly unforgettable experience – fun activities, lots of laughs and the knowledge that you are directly helping seriously ill kids and their families rebuild their lives.
Every year Barretstown needs over 900 volunteers to take part in our life-changing programme. As a volunteer (Cara) you perform a key role in supporting and encouraging each child to take part in all aspects of camp, while making sure they’re safe and supervised at all times.
