Volunteering opportunities abound within CDT and at Cultybraggan Camp. Whether you are interested in history, meeting the public, gardening, DIY, the environment, business development or marketing, your skills can make all the difference. Please get in touch and let us know how you would like to be involved.
In the Museum
Our museum volunteers are the heart of the visitor experience. We pride ourselves in providing a warm welcome to visitors and enjoy imparting a little of the camp's history to enhance their experience. We get to meet visitors from around the world and make new connections.
If it suits, volunteers can choose a 3 hour period to man the museum and shop every week as they are available.
Groups can book to have a tour of the camp and learn about it's past, present and future. Volunteer tour guides are fully trained and supported.
Our 'Cultybraggan Experience' school visits usually last two hours. The children are divided into small groups and rotate round different activities led by our enthusiastic volunteers. The visits have been highly praised by teachers as being enjoyable and informative. The volunteers have a great time too! We really need more volunteers so if you have a 1940's skill, such as darning, or just like telling stories, we will provide all you need.
We are looking for interested individuals who would like to dress in any period of the camp's or Comrie's history to engage with visitors/school groups.
Events cannot be run without the invaluable work of volunteers in various important roles, such as carpark stewarding, cleaning, planning, preparations.
The museum is establishing a large collection of artefacts and resources. Can you help us catalogue and care for our archive?
The Board has vacancies for those with skills relating to financial management, business development, facilities management and marketing and communications.
The Community Orchard has only been achieved by the hard work of dedicated volunteers with invaluable support from Allotmenteers. More than 286 volunteers have been involved since March 2010 and the Group hopes that this will increase as more courses and events are held in the Orchard.
Work Days are held on the first Sunday of (almost) every month from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m. If you would like to come along, please wear clothing appropriate for all weathers and sturdy boots. There is also a break for lunch so please bring refreshments. Come for the day or drop by for an hour or so – all welcome.
Regular updates and information on the next Work Day are posted on the Comrie Community Orchard Facebook page
The Woodland Group would love to hear from locals who might be interested in joining the committee or as a volunteer for woodland tasks, and from anyone else who would like to help out the woodland development in some way.
Volunteers meet regularly, usually Sundays between 10am and 3pm. There are plenty of important jobs to do, so everyone is welcome to come along.
