Volunteer with Us



Who are Rock UK?

Rock UK Adventure Centres are a Christian charity that has been running outdoor adventures for nearly 100 years. Lots of school groups, youth groups, churches and businesses visit our centres for exciting adventure activity weeks, day visits and weekends away. Our adventure activities include, canoeing, kayaking, climbing, archery and many more.  We have 4 adventure centres across the UK and we run a volunteering programme at Frontier Centre, our centre in Northamptonshire.

Placements are for a minimum of 8 months to a maximum of 12 months and generally start in January and September, but we will try to be flexible where possible. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and are typically up to 28 years old. Open to residents of the UK, EU and non EU countries.

Live in a Christian community & grow your faith

As a Christian charity we want to encourage all volunteers to grow in their Christian faith. Volunteers are expected to be committed to the Rock UK Christian fellowship and will have regular Bible studies (in English) on centre as well as the opportunity to worship and get involved with a local church.

This is an amazing opportunity to offer your services to work as part of a busy team of Christian young people, to grow in faith and spiritual understanding and to experience different cultures and denominations. Living as part of a Christian community can be a lot of fun and fellowship with friends is an important part of the experience.

What will I be doing & where will I live?

Volunteers work as part of the Hospitality Team. Working around 37.5 hours a week. Accommodation is provided free of charge with a weekly allowance for meals. After induction and training we like to get our volunteers straight into action. After training you would typically be expected to:

  • Clean & prepare the dining room for guests
  • Carry out washing up duties
  • Serve food to our guests
  • Assist with building safety checks



  • Assist with table plans and checking dietary requirements
  • Welcome guests into the dining room and advise menu details
  • Assist with cleaning and preparing the centre for our guests
  • Assist the maintenance team with light maintenance duties
  • Depending on your interests and abilities you may also have the opportunity to work with other departments for example; the centre’s administration team.


Holidays, days off & sight seeing

Volunteers will be given the opportunity to visit attractions in the U.K. London, Oxford, Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy travelling distance. Volunteers are also encouraged to arrange their own visits on days off and during holiday periods to get the most out of their experience.

Improve your English

English lessons may be provided, subject to volunteer-teacher availability, however this must not be the primary reason for volunteering with Rock UK.
