Volunteers will pay a $10 non-refundable Festival Fee on acceptance of application. This fee helps the Festival maintain a strong Volunteer Community and supports Volunteer services including T-shirts, meals, appreciation events, and support services.

Volunteers must purchase a $100 REFUNDABLE ticket. This is to ensure that the volunteers meet expectations for their required hours. If the volunteer fulfills his obligation, the $100 will be returned within a week of the festival. The Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you regarding making the $110 payment. Again, the $100 will be refunded to you within a week of the festival after meeting the required tasks.

Volunteers will provide the Festival with emergency contact information and inform the Festival of any known medical conditions that are relevant to the safety and emergency care of said volunteer. (ie: severe allergies, physical limitations, required additional accommodations for any health issue)

All Volunteers will attend general Festival & committee meetings as directed. We will have orientation and a team meeting on Thursday, August 3rd. Please make sure you can arrive on Thursday.

All Volunteers will complete 12 volunteer hours throughout the weekend. If you would like to come up a few days early and get your hours out of the way so you can relax and enjoy the weekend you must work 30 hours (Pre or Post festival).

In addition to being assigned to 12 hours of festival work, all Volunteers are expected to attend a pre-Festival orientation Thursday, August  3, 2017 at 8pm at the festival location site.

Any volunteer assigned to a shift over Shabbat will only be asked to perform tasks that are within accordance with the laws of Shabbat.

All Volunteers will complete their Festival volunteer assignment in a satisfactory way (showing up on time for shifts, staying required duration, wearing volunteer T-shirt while on shift, respectful treatment of other volunteers, staff, performers, and guests of the Festival.)

All Volunteers will abide by the policies of The Shabbat Nachamu Camping Trip, including, but not limited to, zero tolerance of violence, harassment, non-medical drug use, and the consumption of alcohol while on shift.

In the event that a volunteer does not show up to their required shift(s), leaves their shift early without notifying the Volunteer Coordinator, or causes any disturbance to the event or any person or property of the festival site, The Camping Trip will take any necessary action, and the volunteer may not be refunded in full.

Volunteers are expected to report to the Volunteer Coordinator (or their supervisor) immediately, if they become unavailable to attend their shift, or, if they must leave their shift early.

If a volunteer is sick, or becomes sick during their shift, they are not permitted to attend to any food-related duties. Additionally, a volunteer may be asked not to attend any shift, if deemed necessary by on-site medical personnel. In the event that a volunteer becomes sick before or during their shift, they must report to their supervisor immediately, and the Volunteer Coordinator will work out a way for the volunteer to make up their hours or determine appropriate action.
