Other roles

Come and help at LPO! Our guests often enquire whether they can give back to LPO by volunteering in any way around the site. We’re delighted that since 2022, our non-profit Association Le Pas Opton gives you the opportunity to apply to be a bénévole and do that very thing!

We’re looking for volunteers (bénévoles) to help during key times before, during and after the season. This might be helping with ‘montage’ in the Spring (10 April - 1 May) which involves preparing the site for the summer. This may be putting up tents, preparing the pitches, setting up the hire centre and other tasks. Similarly in the Autumn, after the summer season, ‘demontage’ is preparing the site for the winter (11-25 September). We're also looking for minibus drivers during the season to do airport runs and trips into St Gilles. Providing you are over 18 and have at least a week to give, we're interested in welcoming you.

You will get to LPO under your own steam - we can book ferries if you wish. You'll be allocated your own mobile home with bedding and towels supplied. In the morning we will enjoy a short time of worship and a thought for the day, followed by getting on with the job in hand. Then in the evenings barbeques will be available as you self-cater all your meals. A limited bar may be open depending on the time of year for us to enjoy spending time together. And of course, on Sunday we will enjoy coming together in the morning for a time of worship and celebration.

We usually ask you to work Monday to Friday each week but there is no formal contract - as a bénévole, you're a volunteer member of our non-profit Association with no employment-type obligations. If finances are a challenge, let us know as we may be able to arrange sponsorship to cover your travel expenses.
