Facilitators play an important role in this camp, as they will be assisting in the organisation and running of activities.

Importantly, they will be in charge of leading groups of special and mainstream students, who will be paired up.

For this camp, the organisers are looking for facilitators aged between 17 and 25 who are open-minded and eager to contribute to this cause.

Facilitators are also required to possess strong communication and leadership skills as they are required to lead groups of student volunteers and their buddies.

The actual camp will be held from 4 July 2019 (Thur) to 6 July 2019 (Sat).

Other key dates include the volunteer orientation on 27 April 2019 (Sat) and two pre-camp sessions on the 22 May 2019 (Wed) and 28 May 2019 (Tue).
