Waterways Recovery Group (WRG) working holidays, called 'Canal Camps', are a great experience for anyone who loves being outdoors and enjoys meeting new people from different backgrounds and of different ages.
These camps also offer you a fantastic chance to learn new skills such as bricklaying, stone-walling, machine operation and restoration techniques.
In groups of up to 20 volunteers, you can help with essential restoration work on the derelict waterways of England and Wales.
Volunteers will be able to take part in various tasks from vegetation clearance to learning how to build a lock wall. Whether you are a complete beginner or have tried your hand at restoration before, you will be guided through every task by the Canal Camp leader and their assistant.
Working holidays are open to anyone aged between 18 and 70. Volunteers come from all walks of life, so why don't you join WRG on a canal camp and try something completely different?
A small fee is charged for food and accommodation
