Teen Ranch Scotland is in full support of the current government regulations.
Currently we are open to visitors and volunteers through prearranged bookings.
We are running camps in line with current guidance please contact the office for more information.
Teen Ranch has a dedicated core staff who work full time but they need support from hundreds of volunteers across the year to keep the house and our camps running.
Volunteering is a fun way to serve God, improve skills and make new friends. Some areas require staff with a little more experience in that area, so make sure to let us know if you have any skills or training and we can try to put you to use!
AREAS YOU CAN HELP IN:
Our kitchen is split into two – on one side, the staff prepare and serve all the food at the camps, whilst the other side look after the dishes and help with the clearing up. No experience needed, we are happy to have you as long as you’re happy to help!
Our House Staff help us to look after the big house, keep on top of the laundry, help the Kitchen Staff to serve food and serve the campers at the snack bar throughout the day. No experience needed to help in the house, however it helps not to be scared of an iron!
The Roustabouts help us keep the bathrooms clean, empty bins, help with some activities for campers, keep the fireplaces stoked and the log stores full. The Roustabouts help in many areas around the house, so no specific experience required – just a willingness to get involved!
Our Canoe Staff are located by our loch to help campers in and out of the water on the canoes and play games with the campers too. This also includes keeping an eye on anyone using the waterslide. Volunteers at the loch will always be with an experienced staff member, so we would welcome anyone with experience in water sports or canoeing/kayaking but at a minimum, a willingness to be in the water is vital!
Our barn has 26 horses which means lots of lifting & laying & brushing & sweeping! Experienced horse staff members will help with trail rides and moving horses. Previous horse experience is preferred for working in the barn so please let us know if you have any experience here.
The work party help with any building, painting, repairing or anything else that needs done around the house. We will usually only place people on work party if there is a specific need and enough volunteers. Volunteers will never be on work party without the support of experienced full time staff members.
To be a volunteer at Teen Ranch you must be 15 or over with a good attitude and a willingness to help!
We will provide all your meals whilst you are with us and give you a bed too.
If volunteering at the weekend camps be here for 7.30pm Friday night. If coming for a week camp arrive on Sunday before 2pm where we will meet in the meeting room.
FYI - since our staff stay on the property during a camp, you can volunteer with us for your Duke of Edinburgh Residential placement too!
