Some of our volunteer positions require musical knowledge, but many do not. Folks who are female, trans, or gender non-conforming are welcome to apply for leadership positions at camp, including as Camp Counselors, Band Coaches, Instrument Instructors, and Workshop Leaders. Non-leadership roles are open to individuals who are cis men.
In this position you will serve as a mentor for your assigned band(s) and make sure they are where they need to be at all times. Camp Counselors with musical experience may also coach campers on their instruments throughout the day and during band practice. Camp Counselors build relationships with campers, serving as caring adults campers can talk with about their experiences, music, and social justice.
Support camper bands through the creative process of writing lyrics, coming up with a band name and logo, and recording the song using SoundTrap. Band Coaches help the campers learn how to play as a group (both musically and interpersonally), as well as help them to prepare a song for the showcase!
