Description

BACKGROUND: A group of 8 volunteers are invited to spend 10 days in south London. But it won’t feel as if you are in a city: volunteers will stay at a Scout Centre in the midst of woodland with no houses in sight! Dulwich is a pleasant, quiet corner of London.

Work And Activities

Volunteers will work on different environmental projects. At the London Wildlife Trust completing practical conservation tasks in the beautiful Sydenham Hill Woods, working alongside local volunteers. Work will be physical and it will be cold and possibly wet so please come prepared with waterproof clothing a good boots. London Wildlife Trust is an urban nature conservation charity working to improve London's green spaces for people and wildlife. Volunteers will also be working in nearby Dulwich Park (a favourite of the late Queen Mary who visited it every year) and Belair Park with the local authority parks department.

Accommodation And Food

South London Scout Centre has bunk beds and central heating but it may be cold and wet. Sleeping bags and working clothes and shoes will be needed. The group will cook meals at the centre.

Notes

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE: As this is a short camp volunteers will arrive on Saturday 9th and depart on Tuesday 19th. If you want to visit London or go shopping arrange to arrive earlier or stay after the camp.

LEISURE: Visits to local projects of interest will be organised. There will be a free weekend when there will be a chance to visit London.

HOSTING FEE: It is difficult and expensive to stay in London so we have to charge £130 GBP for the 10 days. This will pay for the accommodation and a basic budget for food. The fee should be paid upon arrival.
