Oxfordshire is in need of a dynamic, passionate and dedicated volunteer to lead our next all-sections County Camp – OxonJam 2021. This is a unique opportunity to take the lead on the biggest of Oxfordshire’s many events, and provide a fantastic weekend of camping for our thousands of young people and adult volunteers. You will have the chance to build a team and shape this event together, whilst benefitting from the support and experience of a number of existing volunteersDownload Application Pack
In 2017, OxonJam welcomed 3,500 young people from Beavers to Network to the grounds of Blenheim Palace, for a 3-day weekend jam-packed with activities and adventure. From amateur radio to simulators, climbing towers to roller rinks, and discos that lasted well into the night, there was something for everyone to enjoy. The camp also lead the way in the County’s youth-shaped strategy; the camp lead was assisted by an under-25 Deputy, as well as many of the core organising team being young people. The event also pioneered the ‘Adult Hub’, giving adult volunteers the chance to attend training sessions, validate their learning, and share best practice, all within a short walk of their campsite.
By 2021 we want OxonJam to be bigger, better and more exciting than ever before; there is scope for you to utilise your imagination and make your ideas a reality, and shape this event into something you can be truly proud of. You will work alongside volunteers who are passionate about providing new opportunities for young people, and support leaders in offering a programme of activities that would not usually be possible in week to week meetings. No prior experience is required – you will be supported every step of the way, and we will work with you to fit this exciting and ambitious role alongside your existing commitments in a flexible way
