Magnitude Festival at Lendrick Muir6 July 2023
Lendrick Muir Residential Outdoor Activity Centre has been providing outdoor adventurous activities for over 20 years. In that time, we’ve had the privilege of training up many new Activities Instructors. Some joined the team after finishing school or university, some had careers in completely different fields from instructing, some had only previously volunteered in youth work, but they all had something in common –
each had a passion for working in the outdoors, a desire to work with children and young people and a love of Jesus.
So why work at Lendrick Muir?
“My favourite part of being an instructor is the combination of many things that I value and am passionate about. I get to work with young people, be outdoors, be active, work in education and share about Jesus with them”. Cat
It provides children and young people with so much more than an activity session…
“I love to see children come to a safe, supportive place where they can face their fears with encouragement and security. We give them a safe and different way to learn and grow. We can provide 3 meals in their belly and a clean bed to sleep in, which every child deserves”. Robyn
“My favourite part about the role is getting to be able to help children grow in confidence with the activities they take part in, from seeing them shoot a bow and arrow for the first time, or over come a fear of heights, to building their teamwork skills”. Ros
“My favourite part about my role is helping and supporting young people achieve something they never thought they could. I love meeting young people where they are at, whether they are super excited to be here or feeling a little bit nervous. I love getting alongside them and helping them grow in confidence”. Laura
“With the Activities Team we create a space where people can play, explore, and connect with nature and others. We get to have adventures with guests and colleagues”. Anna
“I love seeing young people succeed at something or grow and learn, and I love the variety”. Cat
“A favourite part of my role is seeing people grow in confidence and discover they can do more than they think”. Anna
“It’s a privilege to work in a place where we can provide fun, safe, new experiences for children and show/share with them God’s love and what our Saviour has done for us”. Robyn
We also asked the Activities Team what they’ve gained from their time working at Lendrick Muir Residential Outdoor Activity Centre.
It’s more than a place to work…
“I’ve gained family and friends. Support and encouragement to continually grow and develop”. Robyn
“I’ve gained excellent friends, and a supportive community”. Cat
“I have gained new friendships that will last forever”. Ros
“Lendrick Muir is different to any team I have worked with before. Not only do we all follow Jesus and have a passion for young people, we all enjoy our jobs. You can have a laugh with the team but you know they’ll be there when you need their help with something serious”. Laura
It’s a place to grow…
“I’ve gained a lot of new skills, a job I love, a career that I am passionate about, as well as qualifications and opportunities to develop”. Cat
“I have also grown in my faith with God through mornings thoughts and onsite bible studies”. Ros
We are currently seeking to employ an Activity Instructor as well as recruit new Trainee Activity Instructors.
