Location:
Lochwinnoch

What we're looking for

Here at Lochwinnoch we need help running our successful Children's Nature Birthday Party programme. You will be running individual parties, engaging the children and parents in the natural world, whilst ensuring that they have a fun and memorable day!

The skills you need

A friendly disposition and the confidence to lead a group of children and their parents, on your own, are both a must. Of course you will also enjoy working with children! A love of the outdoors and a willingness to communicate your enthusiasm to both children and their parents are also essential.

Your time

Minimum:
Flexible, preferably 1 day a month
Duration:
Ongoing
Period:
All year round

What's in it for you?

You will gain experience of leading events out of doors as well as working with children and their parents. It is a rewarding experience to know that you have provided a fantastic experience for a child, their friends and parents. Our parties are very different from the average kid's birthday party, lots of children come along with very little experience of spending time in the outdoors but leave at the end of the day with big smiles on their faces and a new love of nature - and getting muddy!
