After Adoption is passionate about making a difference and changing lives for the better.

Our Residential camps are designed to create the best environment for young people to thrive and excel beyond their expectations.

Working on our camps is an exciting opportunity for those who want to gain experience working with young people. It is also an opportunity for those who are passionate about helping others to become a part of a great experience.

We are looking to build up a pool of sessional Workers to help us deliver our residential and non-residential camps for adopted young people across the UK throughout the year. We need individuals who are reliable, committed, enthusiastic and confident to ensure we provide our young people with the best possible experience whilst on camp.

In the past Sessional Workers have come from a variety of different backgrounds, some are students wanting to build their CV, some individuals have social work or youth work backgrounds. If you feel that you are a real team player with bags of enthusiasm and you have the necessary skills, are flexible and willing to travel, we want to hear from you!

Our therapeutic residential camps help build the confidence and self-esteem of adopted young people. They encourage:

  • Peer group support to build identity and reduce isolation
  • Confidence building through team activities
  • Improved self-esteem by making new friends and successfully overcoming challenges

Our therapeutic residential camps take place during half term breaks so you need only commit yourself to working during educational breaks. We are immediately recruiting for our camps in:

April 2018 

Peak District: 3rd-5th April 2018

Lake District: 9th-11th April 2018

Future planned Residential Camps

Dates to be confirmed nearer the time.
