Volunteers just like attendees will be responsible for bringing their own food and anything else needed to camp. There will be a community kitchen with basic cooking essentials such as grills, utensils, etc..
What are the shifts like? Do I need any prior experience?
There is no experience required to volunteer in most areas, in fact we urge all first time BREATHERS to volunteer. We have heard so many stories where people had the most connection with new people through their volunteer time.
Each volunteer will be scheduled to one area. Depending on the area each shift will look a little different. You can expect to help out with general tasks like selling raffle tickets, orienting guests at the front gate, keeping the community kitchen clean and tidy, waste/compost maintenance etc.
If you have any experience in the areas you are passionate about, elaborate as much as possible in the application, especially if you are applying to volunteer in the Medical and Lifeguard, Fire Spinning, or for the Slackline Rigging. Only volunteers with prior experience will be accepted for those areas.
