Volunteer

Hello Black Pot Campers!

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering! By being a volunteer, you directly help create the giving, community environment we base our camp on! This year we are offering Part Time, and Full Time positions, with refunds at $50 and $100. Like last year, volunteer refunds will be given Friday morning, at the end of Camp. This ensures that everyone is fairly compensated for the shifts they’ve worked.

General Disclaimer: We want you to be as happy with your schedule as possible, and are so grateful that you’ll be helping make this week a wonderful experience for your fellow campers. Please keep in mind that by volunteering, you are agreeing to work certain shifts that may coincide with a class you’re interested in, or that you may have to tear yourself away from an epic jam session to help feed 100 hungry musicians (who will be forever grateful). In addition to a sweet monetary discount, you will be showered with copious amounts of gratitude. And, if you play your cards right, you get first crack at the snacks, and leftovers!

When you register, please be sure to indicate your interest in Volunteering, as well as your top 3 desired shifts.
Here’s a brief description of all Volunteer positions for BPC 2015.
