We look forward to having you on the crew.

Summer Lake Gkula Camping Volunteers (7 – 23 Jan 2022)

We will again be running a campground during the summer holidays and need a small crew to assist with site maintenance, the general store and the lake (swim qualifications required). We ask that volunteers commit to at least 3 days volunteering and 3 – 3.5 hrs per day.

Please note, we are not using returning volunteer codes for this application as there are only a small number of positions available.

Lake Gkula Lookerafterers Wanted

Do you like lake? We lake it a lot, our gorgeous Lake Gkula. It’s growing up and developing beautifully but needs regular care and maintenance to keep it flourishing. We have a small but growing crew of dedicated volunteers who come out and do weeding around the edges, pruning and plant care, some skimming of algae and a bunch of tasks that will help the plants grow, the fish flourish and all the creatures that have come to live in the lake thrive.

You can come out for a day / week, a day / month, less or more, it’s up to you. We just ask you to complete this short little form and our head of the Lake Lookerafterer crew will get in touch with you to go through the how you can become part of this very important crew. You will also be able to come camp on site the night before or night after you volunteer and of course, go for a dip after the work is done.


We are looking for some dedicated Woodfordia-loving volunteers who can lend their efforts to keep the land looking beautiful. Woodfordia is in need of some much-needed care and with only a very small site crew, we need more hands to get the necessary work done.

We are looking for people who are physically fit and able to commit to 2 days* per week for a 2-3 month period. Volunteers in this programme have the option to stay on site but will need to be self-contained.
