Become a Volunteer Queen

The key strength of the Adventure Queen community is that it is shaped by the women who are a part of it. So far, we already have a team of over 30 Queens – helping to organise wild camps and lead events, but as we grow and (in the words of captain Scott) “We Jusss donnn’t haveee the poowweeer!!” to do it all. So we’re on the hunt for new recruits.

As we’re a non-profit, these are volunteer roles – undertaken for the very same reason we (McNuff and Framps) started Adventure Queens – a sheer love of getting women outdoors and kicking ass.

If you’re keen to be a part of something magical, take a sneaky peek at the volunteer roles below. Ideally you’d be able to do the role for at least 6 months but you can do it forever if you like. We wouldn’t mind that at all.

If one on these roles floats your adventure boat, give us a holler at hello@adventurequeens.co.uk and tell us a little bit about you.

  • Source fellow AQs to share their story, as part of the campfire stories
  • Organise for other fellow AQs to run any skills sharing sessions
  • Arrange for any campfire materials (wood, campfire treats etc) – paid for by AQ HQ
  • Find fellow AQs to volunteer at the campout
