Bunkhouse Leaders at Wirraway

At Wirraway we are always looking for people to volunteer their time, investing in the growth and wellbeing of young people.  

Bunkhouse Leaders play a vital role in supporting us with our famous ‘Muster’ school holiday program throughout the year. 

As a Bunkhouse Leader, you will lead and mentor a bunkhouse of young people aged 10-17 years, through a week-long camp. You will assist with the implementation of activities and motivate your bunkhouse group to step out of their comfort-zone, all the while having the best time ever!  

Musters Activities include:  

  • Horse Riding & Trail Rides 
  • Sheep Mustering  
  • Low Ropes  
  • Archery  
  • Shelter Building  
  • Bush Walking.  

Wirraway’s Bunkhouse Leaders are more than just volunteers! They are: 

  •  Part of our famous Wirraway community  
  • Mentors and friends to young people 
  • Forming meaningful relationships and friendships, from all walks of life 
  • Sharing their story and their faith with young people  
  • Developing their leadership potential 
  • Transported to another time, living in an ‘Australian settler’ style country village 
  • Experiencing the best of Wirraway’s equine companions 
  • Experiencing the Adelaide Hills in all its glory 
  • Upskilled and trained as needed 
  • Part of our exclusive volunteer events, where volunteers can socialise and network 
  • Provided with meals and accommodation during the camp period. 

Without Wirraway’s volunteers, our amazing Muster school holiday program just wouldn’t be possible.  

Specific requirements: 

  • A valid DHS Working with Children Check
  • A valid National Police Check

Please note: Baptist Care SA will assist approved applicants to obtain these checks/certificates free of charge.

Bunkhouse Leader Testimonials

“I have been involved in bunkhouse leading for quite a few years. Being a bunkhouse leader has been so rewarding but also challenging at times. At Wirraway we support young people and empower them to believe in themselves. Musters give us the opportunity to change their perspective on life by reinforcing fun and positive experiences. I also love being able to talk to campers about faith during our shed talks and building relationships throughout the camp.”
