Now Recruiting: Camp Week Volunteers!

Apr 27th, 2015 by info | 0

We are pleased to announce that our volunteer application for summer 2015 is now OPEN! We are looking for volunteers with a wide variety of skills and availability to help us out as band coaches, instrument instructors, counselors, roadies, and more. This year’s sessions are:

SESSION 1: Monday, July 6th – Sunday, July 12th
Load In: Friday, July 3rd & Sunday, July 5th
Load Out: Saturday, July 11th

SESSION 2: Monday, August 3rd – Sunday, August 9th
Load In: Saturday, August 1st & Sunday, August 2nd

Camp Location: Suder Montessori Magnet School, 2022 W. Washington Blvd., Chicago IL

Our volunteer pool is ever-growing and we want to get to know each and every one of our new members (welcome!). We’ll be scheduling informal interviews with all applicants prior to camp week position placement. During these interviews, we’ll begin paperwork in order for each volunteer to be background checked, which is a requirement prior to working with our campers. We request that volunteers donate to offset the cost of their background check in the amount of $10. In some cases, background checks performed by/for other institutions can be transferred. Please speak with our Operations Manager, Katie ( for more information.

Returning volunteers who have been background checked in the last two years do not need to submit any paperwork unless contacted specifically.

There will be a mandatory volunteer orientation that is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 27th from 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at
