2018 Orientations and Training

Kids Camp Volunteer Orientation = Saturday, June 23, 10am - 2pm

Teen & Film Camp Volunteer Orientation = Saturday, August 11, 10am - 2pm

The sessions will take place the Saturday before the week of Summer Camp. We will go over camp policies, teaching and band coaching strategies, how to create a fun and safe Rock Camp, methods for working with kids, and hold a Q&A session. This is also a great opportunity to connect with your fellow volunteers. Please also note that we will ask GRC volunteers to participate in a back-ground check prior to the orientation. Volunteers who will work at both camps are only required to attend the first orientation.
