Volunteers Needed for Camp Cause And Success (CAS)
Camp CAS Leadership Summits are made possible by the support of a larger community. We look for a few dedicated individuals who are willing to give a few extra hours to support their fellow leaders. In exchange, we waive the tuition and fees to attend Camp. For more information about CampCAS, please visit our main page.
Request for Volunteers
If you are accepted as a volunteer, you will get to fully participate in the all of the workshops, discussions and activities at the Summit. Since you are willing to help before, during or after Camp, we will waive the workshop fee. However, you will still need to cover room and board costs of approximately $395.
Please fill out this application if you are willing and able to invest in your leadership and we are thrilled to have you at Camp CAS!
Volunteer Position Descriptions
Volunteer During Camp CAS
Cabin Counselor - Cabin Counselors are able to fully participate in camp, but they have the extra responsibility to make sure that campers know the daily schedule and are available to answer any questions. Counselors will be the first to jump in to lead a song or help fill down time at camp. They will show campers how maturity easily blends with excitement. The Camp environment and pushing leadership skills can trigger discomfort. Cabin Counselors should be able to hold a hand or give a hug without feeling sorry for or trying to fix the other person. Counselors may also be asked to help out with various duties around camp that will not drastically interfere with your ability to participate in camp. This combines easily with Set-Up, Clean-up and Welcome Teams.
Camp Store - Take a shift at the camp store! We have a small camp store that sells minimal snacks, Camp attire and books. This requires you to do basic math, but no need to handle money. You may need to answer questions about camp or give basic directions as well.
Music - Are you waiting to share your musical talents? We want you at camp! We love wandering minstrels, singer/songwriters, performers for campfire. We have limited electrical ability so you should plan on mostly acoustic or light amplification (may have to bring your own). There is also opportunities to lead a workshop or two on song writing, finding your voice or other creative aspect of sound.
Audio/Video Technician - Hey Techies! This is for you. Run the basic video and sound systems for camp activities that require mic and amplification. We have basic needs, but you will be so valuable because who likes presenters that have to yell?
Artistic, Creatives, Makers - Have a talent to share? We need help making signs and posters before camp. We also welcome makers who want to donate their talents for things like An Activity Board, Giant Jenga, Spin the Wheel Activities - and anything that makes Camp...Camp! There is also an opportunity to lead arts or crafts workshops at camp.
General Camp Help
Welcome Registration Team - Help campers check-in to camp, find their cabins and get set on activities. The welcome team greets campers with outrageous enthusiasm and heartfelt excitement so that all campers, new and returning, are able to make the transition from work world to camp world. This combines well with Cabin Counselor or Set-Up Teams.
Set-up - Arrive early and help set up welcome activities, signs and meditation tents. This will include lunch on the first day of camp and is a perfect job to combine with Cabin Counselor or Welcome Team - or if you plan to come to the mountains a few days early to really enjoy the scenery.
Clean-up - Stay a little later (2 hours max) and help pack up the crafts, activities and signs. This is a fun way to get to know some of the core team and “let loose” to really play after camp is over. Perfect if you plan on spending some time in the mountains after camp to really soak in the beauty.
Aid to Camp Director and other speakers - This is a general position which requires you to be a flexible problem solver. Speakers and the camp director will look to you to help get people to meals, to make sure campfires are lit and extinguished, to help set up field games or run get a binder or notes left behind. You will fully participate in camp, and have an extra special right-hand relationship with the speakers and core team.
Outside of Camp CAS
These positions require a bit more time and skill so in return you receive a full camp scholarship.
Pre-camp communications - PR/Marketing/Camper Communications - If you are well connected, have an influential network or love writing we would love your help spreading the love of our leadership summits. Examples of what you bring to the table: press release writing and distribution among your active network, value content writing and distribution among your followers, social media sharing among your influential network - we’re open to your creative input. If you have people that listen - we think that camp is something worth talking about!
Post-camp events (trade show booths, workshop helpers) - Camp is just the beginning. After camp we love to sponsor other events or hold smaller events that are like mini-camps. Yes, we also have a “real business” of courses and workshops that help people like you embody leadership and clear obstacles to success. We’d love your help at booths or supporting participants at other workshops. *to help at some workshops requires an additional investment
Volunteer Coordinator/Head Counselor - This position is active at camp as well as before and after. The person will actively recruit volunteer applicants, communicate with potential volunteers to assess needs and abilities and recommend positions to the Camp Director (who will be responsible for final placement). During camp, the Head Counselor will fully participate in camp, but be available to answer questions of other volunteers or point them to the Event Coordinator for further instruction. After camp, the Head Counselor will connect with each volunteer to get feedback and make recommendations for future volunteer needs.
Booo! No Rules! No Rules! OK...we have FIVE “strongly encouraged norms that, if not followed, may result in you going home early.” How’s THAT for modern day parenting?
#Hashtag Free means there is no social media. In fact, you can check your phone, tablets and other devices in the Decompression Zone. There is no cell coverage or wifi at camp anyway so it’s a perfect excuse to unplug. #Hashtag Free allows you to feel safe because no picture of you with a painted face, clown nose or leading the kazoo symphony parade will be posted. No reputation management needed at Camp CAS.
Title Free Environment means you get to drop your title at the door. We level the playing field at Camp CAS. You are free to be who you are, not what your title dictates you are supposed to be. In business, we rely a lot on titles and labels and we get accustomed to having them provide automatic positioning and status. But they also limit us. What is a CEO supposed to act like? What happens if I’m a Founder but my business is new…will people think I’m a failure? What if I’m an entry level admin but I know I am really worth more? Will people ever see me for ME?
Title Free Environment allows you to let all success and failure drop away. And after all…is a Marketing Manager inherently better than a CTO at “Mermaid Tag?” We don’t think so.
Drug and Alcohol Free*
Yes. We get we are all adults and a cocktail or cold beer can be a nice addition to your day. But we are Drug and Alcohol Free at Camp CAS. It allows you to really see who you are without the aid of any substance. It means you can dive into your true joys, passions, fears and obstacles without the filter of drugs or alcohol.
*We understand that some people use prescription medications. This rule applies to drugs of the non-legal kind. We also know that some people can’t quit smoking overnight. While we encourage you to cut back, we will offer limited designated smoking areas away from the rest of camp. And we do believe strongly in coffee. Strong Coffee.
Age Free is just as it sounds. No talking about how old and wise you are, nor how young and full of energy, or how old and full of energy, nor young and wise…you get it. We often judge people by age and in truth, it just doesn’t matter. We cringe when we hear “Oh, you’re so young…you don’t have to worry about that…” or “You have so many years of experience, you must be an expert.” So, at Camp CAS…we drop age. We just ask that you’re over 18 (there’s a legal part to that…)
FOMO is Fear Of Missing Out. It drives so many decisions. Are we going toward what we want or just scared of missing out on the party? It usually holds us back so…we’re FOMO Free. This means that at Camp CAS you are always in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing with the right people. How right is that?
