Our community considers volunteering to be a gift to the community and an incredible, hands-on opportunity for civic participation. This is one of the qualities that makes burns the unique experience that is so close to our hearts. It is also, bar none, the easiest, best, and most rewarding way to make new burner friends!
There are plenty of ways to get involved and put your particular skill set to good use, whether before, during or after the event. Are you new to burns? Volunteering is the best way to meet the community. Are you a seasoned burner, ready for more? You already get it – without volunteering, without YOU, we’re nothing more than a big group of people camping in the forest.
A few things we’ve heard from volunteers (and some we just made up):
“I met my partner while spanking burners in at greeters.”
“I wanted to focus on my mindfulness practice and I found helping others relax at Sanctuary to be very fulfilling.”
“I sparkled so hard at [close-by regional] that I’m gonna take like 4 shifts at Summerisle to make up for it.”
