Throughout the year we run a number of events at Northern Heights and are looking for volunteer to help. This can be a one off or an ongoing commitment.


Most activities at Northern Heights are self led by the groups. We do offer instructor led archery and orienteering. If you are interested in volunteering for either please get in touch. Archery instructors are required to hold an Archery GB qualification, if you are interested but don’t have this please get in touch and we can discuss options for supporting your training.
