Why not spend a year as a Volunteer in a Camphill Community!

Tina Striding Out Albinus
Enjoying a year as a volunteer (co-worker) in a Camphill Community is an exciting and rewarding challenge. Living in an extended family environment with other co-workers and individuals most likely with a learning disability, you will learn to collaborate, take on responsibility and experience the satisfaction of contributing a caring Community as part of a dynamic modern social initiative.

Tina from Denmark came to Camphill after finishing school. During this time she feels she has

  • Developed self confidence
  • Enabled others to help themselves
  • Developed skills in the Craft workshops
  • Made many friends

Camphill is an international organisation and volunteers come from all over the world.
