This festival does not happen without help from everyone attending. Everyone is expected to keep the site tidy and well maintained throughout the course of the event. We will all need to clean the site on Monday; every cabin will be responsible for their own accommodation and surrounding area.
In addition, The Gathering depends on volunteers to perform certain other essential tasks. Volunteering offers wonderful opportunities to meet people and make new friends.
The site requires less involvement and work from the attendees and as such, we can now consider the running of a ritual or workshops as your work shift. We appreciate the hard work, time, and dedication you put into these for us.
Here are some of the volunteer opportunities for your consideration:
First Aid: Having first-aiders on call for the weekend makes us all safer. If you have first aid training and would like to volunteer for this shift, please give us your certification information, including the certificate number and expiration date.
Children’s Activities: Under the guidance of the Children’s Activities Coordinator or an assistant, you will help guide our youngest campers as they work on various arts, crafts, or other activities. All parents are expected to do at least one shift.
Monday Pack-up: Everyone will assist with the site tear-down and pack-up.
Workshop Presentation: Workshops will count as the volunteer contribution for the workshop presenters.
Fire tenders: Keep the sacred fire going, and chop and haul wood.
