Welcome to The Snowball 2023, potential volunteers!
Though often helping out behind the limelight, the volunteers at The Snowball are a very important part of the event. You are vital to give our participants the best possible experience of the camp. While helping out as a volunteer, with what we aspire to make not-too-burdensome tasks, you’ll get a deeper experience of the camp as well as the opportunity to engage with people from many different parts of the world. Interested? Please read through the information below and get back to us if you have any questions, or would like us to send you the application form!
When and where
If you decide that you want to be a part of our fantastic team of volunteers, you need to be at The Snowball December 26th-31st. A mandatory information meeting will be held on December 26th, 18:00-20:00, so you must ensure you can be at the hotel no later than 17:30 that day.
There are several positions that you can apply for. You’ll (most likely) be stationed on the same position during the entire event. Our volunteer coordinators appoint the positions, but you will get a chance to prioritize them as you fill in the application form. Depending on whether you'd like to help out during or before/after the camp, you should apply for the Snowball Crew or the Construction Crew.
As part of the Snowball Crew, you'll be helping out approximately 12-14 hours spread over December 26-31st, usually one two-hour shift per night. This may however vary depending on which task you are assigned. Detailed information about the different tasks can be found in the application form (link at the bottom of the page).

If you prefer to help out a lot during one or two days before/after the camp, the Construction Crew might be an option for you. Keep in mind that laying and tearing up the floors is heavy and requires some stamina (as well as a well-functioning back and knees!). And don't forget to bring clothes that allow you to crawl around on the floor!

We will go through the applications on a rolling basis. Some details are yet to be solved, and you might have to await our answer for a little while.
