Kookaburra leaders volunteer for as many weekend camps as their time permits. Some leaders may attend one camp per year, some attend every camp. Kookaburra Kids program owes its success to the variety of skills, knowledge and passion the leaders bring. All leaders are trained prior to camp and undergo the appropriate Working with Children Checks.
The Kookaburra program welcomes more volunteers to join the Kookaburra family, we guarantee an inspiring experience working with some amazing kids and other like minded people. Friendships will be made with your fellow leaders that may last a lifetime.
Message sent from a new leader after May 2014 camp.
“Hi guys, I had an amazing time! I was buzzing today too – it was a wonderful camp with fabulous leaders and kids. I’ll definitely be coming again. I found it all quite emotional at times All the leaders were so impressive in their ability to relate to the kids and to encourage and motivate. I felt very fortunate to spend time with such inspirational people. I said at the debrief that it was good to be there as a leader rather than a teacher and to be able to take a very different role was great. Thanks again. I have been so impressed by the whole operation and I look forward to the September camp Warm regards Rebecca”
