  • Ed Talks

  • Annual Leader’s Weekend

  • Annual Formation Evaluation

Why is this happening?

We want to set up these three groups for a number of reasons. We hope they will:

  • work towards enriching and sustaining the amazing work we already do

  • identify areas for growth and development

  • provide you as volunteers a space to drive the progress and direction of ERCSA

  • give you the opportunity to learn and develop skills for your professional life

  • establish a space for volunteers to contribute to ERCSA when they can no longer regularly attend programs 

How will this all work?

After an initial set up stage, that's largely up to you. Below you will find an expression of interest form for each working party. We ask that you prioritise joining one group. We're aiming for 8-10 people on each working party. Regardless of if you are new to camps, have been consistently volunteering for the last 4 years, or have stepped away, we want you! We want a real diversity of voices and experiences.


We are also looking for 2 co-convenors to guide and coordinate the work of each working party. Their responsibility would be to: 

  • Organise and coordinate meetings

  • Guide the direction and discussion of meetings

  • Delegate or take meeting minutes

  • Coordinate with ERCSA Staff

In the initial set up of these working parties, Co-Convenors will be selected by ERCSA Staff. For the appointment of co-conveyors in 2021 and beyond, we will look to the working parties to set up a transparent and volunteer-led appointment processes. 

If you have any questions , feedback, or concerns, get in contact with either Jess ( or Stefan (
