Aged 16-25? Want to do something different, fun and rewarding this summer? Why not spend a week volunteering on a CSV Heritage Camp?
Heritage Camps is an opportunity like no other. You’ll spend a week volunteering to help preserve or restore a famous cathedral, church or historic building and doing your bit to protect our architectural heritage. You’ll get some great experience for your CV, make new friends, have a lot of fun and get the opportunity to make a difference to some of the most spectacular buildings in Britain.
Camps take place every year during
July and August at various locations across the UK.
Each camp is led by two experienced volunteer team
leaders, who are also part of the team.
Accommodation, food and equipment is provided.
Activities may include maintaining, cleaning and helping to conserve the buildings and grounds of the cathedral or historic building where you are based. You may also be restoring monuments and statues, re-laying stone pathways, maintaining ornamental woodwork and brass features, clearing crypts and cellars, painting, gardening or restoring graveyards.
Heritage Camps is a great opportunity for those with an interest in architecture, heritage conservation, archaeology or those undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh Gold award. Whatever your interest, each camp is an opportunity to do something worthwhile and totally different, to have fun and get to know new people.
“The actual work was worth
the coming. At Chichester, the work I did will
last for a long time and actually make a
difference to the longevity of the establishment.
I restored columns, redid doors and helped
preserve monuments. The appreciation I have of the
original builders is something that I will retain
“One of the reasons I continue to lead
year after year is the new challenge each new
camp presents. No two camps are the same, and
that’s what makes them so special. During the
week friendships for life are forged, new skills
are gained, and each camper takes something from
the camp. For every camper there is a sense of
pride that they have made a tangible difference
and their work is something that the local
community really appreciate. More than once I’ve
been contacted by a former camper who has
returned to visit a camp ‘to check on those
railings I painted!”
