YOUTH SUMMER CAMP VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS
Dates for the 2019 Summer Camps:
Session 1 - June 10-15, 2019
Session 2 - July 29 - August 3, 2019
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Rock Camp SLC (RCSLC). Summer camp is a one-week day camp. Our campers are girls ages 8-17 and camp will take place at Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts.
We are looking for volunteers who put the best interests of youth and their physical and emotional safety above all else, who understand and believe in our mission and who will show up every day, on time and ready to work. A variety of different volunteer positions are available. Some require musical knowledge, and many do not.
RCSLC is strongly rooted in valuing female leadership and mentorship. We believe in giving girls, transgender, and gender non-conforming youth as many chances as possible to see all kinds of self-identified women and girls in positions of leadership. For this reason, we prefer to place female-identified mentors in teaching, coaching, and managing positions, but there are several other positions open to all gender identities.
Volunteers that are accepted are required to complete a background check prior to the start of camp. Once accepted as a volunteer, we will send you instructions on getting your background check.
Please note that preference is given to volunteers in the greater Salt Lake City area. If you are applying from outside of the Salt Lake City area, please consider applying at a girls rock camp closer to you. Visit the Girls Rock Camp Alliance website to find a camp near you, and help us grow the girls rock camp community worldwide!
Orientation & Training
There is a mandatory volunteer orientation and training session before camp - check the application for 2019 dates. Please consider this to be the first day of your volunteer shift. We will talk about what to expect from the week, how to have a fun and safe camp session, teaching strategies, troubleshooting, etc. This is also a time when volunteers get to know each other, start collaborating, and do last minute camp set up.
