|CAMDEN MUSEUM Volunteers
Camden Museum Volunteers, WE NEED YOU!
- Love history and Museums?
- Like meeting people with similar interests?
- Have a few spare hours once a month?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, why not fill out this form and become a volunteer at the Camden Museum to provide assistance to Museum visitors and the behind the scenes tasks that keep the Museum running.
- Want to learn about your local area and the people and places that make up its colourful history?
Volunteers are the mainstay of the Museum and the Society is always on the lookout and ready to welcome newcomers to this great experience.
They work as museum attendants greeting visitors and ensuring their visit is enjoyable and a learning experience.
Behind the scenes volunteers are involved in cataloguing the collection, research, displays, tour groups and school groups.
Without their work the museum wouldn't be open four days a week and the Historical Society could not run the museum as well as it does.
Volunteers can be rostered on for as little as two hours once a month or for more hours, depending upon your availability and number of volunteers available.
Experienced volunteers are available to lead you through the roles of a Museum Volunteer with regular training days held to provide more information and other opportunities to be involved.
“I like the great atmosphere of the Museum and the range of interesting people who come in to visit” said Bob who volunteers a few times a month at the Museum. “They learn about Camden’s History and I learn new things just by interacting with them” he said.
For volunteers who are studying there is also the potential to assist with Museum projects and research. Volunteers with the Museum cover all ages and experience, you just need the willingness to learn and enjoy yourself.
People seeking volunteer work to meet their Centrelink requirements are able to do so through the Museum as it is a registered organisation with Centrelink.
