If you, as the volunteer do not show up to your assigned shifts, your volunteer ticket deposit may be kept as payment for your ticket to the festival. This ensures those who are granted free entry in exchange for work, indeed show up to work or pay for their ticket.
The Volunteer Refundable Ticket Deposit for the 2018 Festival is $200.
You will receive a PayPal invoice in the amount of $200 upon the Acceptance of your Application which must be paid prior to 30 days from the start of the festival.
Volunteer Spots are limited, and are on a first come first serve basis. If we have filled all of the volunteer spots, and you have not yet paid your deposit, even if we previously approved your application, you may not be granted a volunteer position. Given this scenario, it is best that you pay the Refundable Volunteer Ticket Deposit as soon as you receive the invoice.
Volunteers will not have the ability to pick their shifts, and shifts will be assigned by Backwoods staff as needed.
Volunteers shall be 16 years of age or older and sign a Liability Release Waiver. For those under the age of 18, a parent or guardian of legal age must sign the Liability Release Waiver on the minor's behalf.
Refundable Volunteer Ticket Deposits will be returned for those who showed up to all required shifts within 7 days after the last day of the festival.
