BREAKFAST: From 7:00am
MUSTER: 7:30am Mandatory for all volunteers working that day.
**If you are volunteering for a day at a time then returning home, you MUST be at our basecamp no later than 7:20am each morning and we MUST know that you are coming.
MEALS: Meals are provided for volunteers, but please bring your own snacks. Breakfast and a nourishing two-course evening meal are provided by BlazeAid (with help from local community groups) at the basecamps.
Where possible, the families you’re working with will provide morning tea and lunch for volunteers each day. Otherwise, BlazeAid provides food for you to make your own sandwiches to take with you.
Please note, if you have special dietary needs you will need to bring your own food if you are not able to eat the meals provided.
AMENITIES: Power and water available.
There is plenty of space for you to bring your own caravan, motorhome, swag or tent. All sites have toilets and hot showers.
Accommodation for volunteers who don’t have a caravan, tent, etc, varies at the different basecamps. Please ask the Camp Coordinator for more details about the basecamp you’re going to. If you have a swag, camp stretcher, inflatable mattress, etc, please bring it with you. You will also need to bring pillows, sheets, blankets, etc.
Please remember that we are working in disaster areas, so the accommodation available may be fairly basic and power will be limited. In some areas, mobile phone coverage might not be very good.
