Who are we?
The SSC has been creating memories that last a lifetime since 1912.
We run week-long, inclusive summer camps for young people between 10-18 years olds. Our campsite is based in Perthshire, Scotland and we welcome young people from all over the world.
We pride ourselves on being something a bit different in helping young people build on their own confidence, learn new skills and make friends for life!
The SSC is staffed on a volunteer basis - with the exception of our organiser which is a paid position. We have a Management Committee made up of 5 members including our Chair, Secretary and other Executive members.
We're currently looking for a Treasurer to have a watchdog role over all aspects of financial management, working closely with other members of the Management Committee to safeguard the organisation finances.

In "normal" times the committee tries to meet once a month in person and have a call in between. It would be great if the treasurer could come to the majority of these calls (usually last around 1 hour on a weekday evening) however there's no pressure to attend. The number of hours required per week will vary depending on the projects we're working on. There will be more of a time commitment in the lead up to our AGM (usually mid-November) and in the run up to camp (mid-July).
