Keros Kite Camp - volunteering
Location: Limnos Island, Greece
Dates: 25 June - 2 July 2016
Accommodation: Shared luxury safari tents, full board
Access Adventures encourages people with a physical disability to get involved with outdoor sports. We have our first adaptive kitesurfing camp organised in June. This is really exciting as there are not many opportunities for disabled people to get involved in the sport.
There will be 6 disabled participants on the camp who have never kited before, we're hoping they return from the camp with a great sense of achievement after the challenge of learning to kite.
We need 2 able-bodied 'volunteers' to help the camp run more smoothly. As a new charity, we unfortunately have limited funding. However, if you are able to cover the cost of your flight, then we can offer the camp (accommodation & full catering) for just a £150 donation.
Volunteer voles will generally include carrying equipment, loading wheelchairs in & out of the van, helping people get around on the sand etc. However, if you also feel confident to assist in the water this will be possible (but personal kite experience is not essential). You won't be busy all day and there will be the chance to get plenty of kiting in yourself! We hope that you would also benefit from the experience by furthering your knowledge on adaptive kiting.
Please get in touch if you're interested. We can then provide suggested flight details. Perhaps you could do some fundraising if covering your own costs would be difficult?

We would greatly appreciate any help you can give and promise to take lots of flattering photos of you helping out during the camp!
