Direct at Camp Roles
All direct at-camp volunteers will be required to submit to a criminal background check and attend a mandatory volunteer orientation. These volunteer positions are reserved for people who align with the identifies Fierce Flix serves. These roles will be working directly with the kids!
Producers are the heart of Fierce Flix. These are our camp counselors! In this position, you will facilitate cooperation among a small group of campers in creating a music video. Producers will help campers work together, name their team, develop their video, and may help out with technical instruction if needed. Because this position is critical to the success of the campers, you must be available all day for the full week of camp. Filmmaking experience is a bonus, but not required. Most importantly, you must love working with kids and helping to empower them through creativity. The Producer must be able to facilitate the creative process among the team members and supply endless encouragement throughout the entire week of camp.
Filmmaking instructors are needed to teach campers how to make a film! You will need to be able to assist and encourage students of all ages and experience levels – some campers have been making videos for years, and some have never used a camera before. Filmmaking instruction takes place in two sessions, a morning session from 9:30-11:00 and an afternoon session from 2:00-3:30. Filmmaking instructors may attend either a morning or afternoon session (or both) and may do one or many sessions throughout the week of camp. Each day, campers will learn different aspects of production, so no two days will be the same. We are interested in instructors for all sorts of topics, including storyboarding, composition, camera operation, lighting, directing, editing, camera stabilization, animation, motion graphics, and more!
Workshop instructors will teach skill-specific workshops to campers. Workshops are curated by the Fierce Flix board of directors. Instructors must be available for both morning (11am-12pm) and afternoon (1pm-2pm) sessions during the day of their workshop.
Members of the Vibes Squad work together to ensure that all camp interactions remain positive! This will include mediating and mentoring camper interactions, settling disputes, and fostering encouragement among all participants at camp! Counseling and mediating experience is preferred, but not required. For this position, you must be able to attend at least one 4 hour shift at camp, either 8:30-12:30 or 12:30-4:30.
Camp can be a big experience for our campers, so we like to have “settling in” assemblies in the morning, and “settling out” assemblies in the afternoon. Fierce Flix needs energetic volunteers to help lead these assemblies. Activities may include dancing, ice-breaker activities, screaming out nerves and insecurities, and doing relaxing stretches. We ask that assembly leaders commit to as many mornings (8:00-9:30) and afternoons (2:30-4:00) as possible.
Before/After Care Mentors
If you are interested in hanging out with campers during before/after care – making crafts, playing games, watching music videos – please let us know! We offer flexible drop off/pick up times for guardians to help working caregivers get their youth to camp. Before/After care volunteers allow our full time volunteers to have meetings and check-ins, and help us make camp the best possible experience for everyone!
Non-Direct at Camp Roles
Fierce Flix supplies campers and volunteers with lunch and snacks all week long. This requires a lot of food preparation, set-up, and clean-up. Furthermore, craft services volunteers will need to keep track of campers’ dietary restrictions to ensure that everyone stays healthy and ready to make films! In addition to handling lunch and snacks, craft services will be asked to assist with set-up, clean-up, and management of arts and crafts supplies. We ask that the craft services volunteers attend at least one 4-hour shift at camp, but they will be most needed from 11:30-12:30 for lunch.
Donations of Skills/Services/Labor
Fierce Flix loves fostering engagement among all members of this incredible community! Do you have a particular skill or service to donate, including bookkeeping, grant writing, graphic design, equipment repair/hauling/transportation, flyering, marketing, food coordinating, etc.? Do you have equipment you would like to donate or loan to us for the week of camp? We welcome donations of all kinds!
Behind-the-Scenes at Camp
Behind the scenes camp helpers would assist in various activities, including workshop set up, gear repair and distribution, clean-up, and other supporting the needs of camp operations. Volunteers in behind the scenes positions will not have one-on-one camper contact, but are still a huge help around camp!
Check In/Out Person
Fierce Flix needs volunteers to (wo)man the front desk throughout camp! In the mornings, this position keeps track of who has arrived and handing out name tags. Likewise, in the afternoon, front desk helpers will keep tabs on who is being picked up and ensure that all campers are leaving with their authorized adults. Throughout the day, we will need desk people to assist with volunteer check-in. This position will also help direct people to the right volunteers/directors for assistance. Front desk helpers are needed for at least one 4-hour shift during camp week, either 8:30-12:30 or 12:30-4:30.
