Ever tried your hand at tree surgery then toasted marshmallows over an open fire in the woods? Rolled down a grassy slope on Box Hill? Built a raft in the pouring rain, then got even wetter testing it out? Walked a pack of bloodhounds over misty evening fields? Organised exciting and interesting activities for young people who love the countryside?
Our club leaders organise a varied weekly programme of fun and interesting activities, from talks about deer or bees, through evening hikes in the North Downs and learning to rear chickens, to AirHop and LaserQuest. As a county, we hold competitions and events throughout the year, the highlight being the annual Cowpie Country Show in May.
Most of our clubs are for young people aged 10-18, but you can be a young farmer right up to the age of 26 and once you’re over 18 you can volunteer to lead a club. We're now looking for new leaders to support our clubs across the county, particularly at our Beare Green and Cranleigh clubs. We also have clubs in Reigate, Brockham, Dorking and Chobham.
If you love the countryside and working with young people, we want to hear from you - we ask for a couple of hours of your time one evening a week, and in return we offer you support and training and the opportunity to take part in loads of great activities.
So what are you waiting for? Give us a call to find out more…
