Tolmers would not be the same without it's dedicated volunteer service crew and it's something we are very proud of.
Our 100+ volunteers come from all walks of life including students, teachers, designers, mechanics, software developers, nurses, scientists, firefighters, tailors, merchant navy officers, company directors, the list goes on...
Tolmers has a large number of activities available to groups, the service crew are able to instruct all of them.
Many of the crew members have qualifications such as GNAS, NSRA, BCU and climbing. Most of the qualifications are gained whilst at Tolmers.
Over the years, our service crew has gained a vast amount of experience at running and supporting large events, from traffic and parking, maintaining the facilities, running activities to dealing with any problems or issues that occur. Our service crew pride themselves in going that extra mile for our campers.
The campsite and the service crew are committed to provide a great service to all who need it. Not only do we give our volunteers the opportunity to gain widely recognised qualifications for activities such as Archery and Air rifle instruction, we also have an annual dedicated training weekend. This training weekend is a commitment by the campsite to give our service crew the opportunity to get refreshed and up to date on our activities, policies and procedures.
The Tolmers service crew are not just a group of volunteers. Although they work hard, they have a great time doing it. Many of the crew socialise outside of the campsite, and many have got married, had kids, some of whom are now service crew members themselves! They are a family.
