LOAD-IN, SET-UP (any gender, Saturday July 13th morning & afternoon)
We need *a lot* of help loading in and setting up our camp space. This position is largely labor intensive, requiring lifting and carrying heavy items while making many trips from the moving truck to our designated area. (And first, we have to load the truck at our storage center.) However, we also need a few people to do lighter things, such as hanging up decorations, getting our art supply area organized, and making sure each of the music rooms has everything they need. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in this position!
BREAK-DOWN, LOAD-OUT (any gender, Saturday July 20th morning & afternoon)
This is very similar to the other Gear Move Crew position, except it’s reversed and includes lots of cleaning. Please email email@example.com if you’re interested in this position!
• G I R L S R O C K C A M P — VOLUNTEER APPLICATION
July 15th-20th, 2019 + Sunday, June 23rd: mandatory training for certain positions
BAND MENTOR (full week commitment, 8:30A-4:30P)
The Band Mentor works directly with one band of 4 campers during the entire week of camp. Each band will have both a Band Manager and a Band Mentor. The Band Mentor will help the campers develop positive relationships with their bandmates, teach teamwork skills, and encourage the campers to solve disagreements by promoting effective communication. No music experience necessary.
BAND MANAGER (full week commitment, 8:30A-4:30P)
The Band Manager works directly with one band of 4 campers during the entire week of camp. Each band will have both a Band Manager and a Band Mentor. The Band Manager will help the campers write a song together by building on the techniques learned in their instrument class, teaching the campers about song structure, and recording/ taking notes as the song develops. The Band Manager should have a basic understanding of songwriting and play more than one rock band instrument. (Band Managers typically double as Instrument Instructors.)
INSTRUMENT INSTRUCTOR (full week commitment preferred but not necessary)
The Instrument Instructor teaches an instrument class the first three days of camp. We currently offer guitar, bass guitar, drums, and vocals classes. Many of our campers will come with zero experience, so the instructor will be working with both beginners and intermediate musicians. (Instrument Instructors typically double as Band Managers.)
PARENT LIAISON (full week commitment)
The Parent Liaison will be the go-to person for any parental concerns. They are responsible for checking in campers upon arrival each morning and checking them out when they leave. They will also be the keeper of epi pens and important camper information. We are looking for someone who has experience working with children and who is incredibly organized. Parents are so important to us and we want to make sure that they feel safe sending their kids to our awesome camp.
We have lots of workshop ideas and are looking for people to lead them! Workshop Leaders only need to come to camp for one day, in either the morning or afternoon. Some possible workshop topics include: choreography/stage presence, feminism, zine making, self-defense, poetry writing, screen printing, body positivity, community arts, influential women in music & art, booking a show, running a record label, gender identity, acceptance, yoga.. and so much more! What are you interested in? Propose your idea here!
If you want to be there during the week of camp but can only commit to one or two days, this role is for you! A million and one things come up at camp and we will need all hands on deck. Some examples of places we need you include but are not limited to: Gear Crew (move amps, drums, etc. between classrooms), Tidy Team (lightly clean our activity space and volunteer area), Snapshot Squad (take photos for us to use on social media). CAMP IS FUN! No music experience necessary.
SHOWCASE HELPER (Saturday July 20th evening)
Our showcases are FANTASTIC and we need a lot of assistance to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible. We will need help loading in, setting up equipment, troubleshooting instrument & gear issues, decorating the stage, ushering, gathering the campers, selling merchandise, keeping things organized, and cleaning up once it’s over.
SHOWCASE PHOTOGRAPHERS (2) & VIDEOGRAPHER (Saturday July 20th evening)
