IOE Rec Volunteers will be heading off to Merricks Lodge on the Mornington Peninsula for an end of year ‘volunteers only’ camp. With International Day of the Volunteer being celebrated on December 5, the camp is a good way of letting our volunteers know how much we appreciate them.

In a break from the usual practice of holding the camp over a weekend, the December camp will be run from the Wednesday 16 – Friday 18, with school finished for most this will  give those volunteers who have weekend work the chance to attend.

” Our last volunteer camp generated so much positive energy and enthusiasm amongst the volunteers that we thought it would be a great idea to harness that same anticipated enthusiasm for the busy summer holiday program” said Volunteer Coordinator,  Jess. ” The mentoring and support throughout our volunteer community that resulted was amazing – what a way to get everyone ready for January camps and activities!”

As well as all the fun and socialisation that is an IOE volunteer camp, there will again be a more serious side with some training and plenty of opportunity for volunteers to lead discussion and give feedback on various aspects of their IOE volunteering experience. As a special addition this year, play therapist Laura West will be holding play sessions to stress the importance of letting the personal inner child out and playing with the children on activities. Should be great fun.

So far, there are about 30 volunteers registered and with a maximum capacity of 40, it would be a good idea to register asap so you don’t miss out. Give Jess or Marce a call 9758 5522 or email volunteers@ioe.org.au to register.
