Many opportunities to show your love for the community and meet many amazing people in the process. We ask that volunteers offer a minimum of 5 hours before, during or after the retreat. Each volunteer will receive $50 off their ticket for the weekend. For folks who are feeling extra ambitious and wanting to take on a more of a leadership role, you will receive a full entry to the best inclusive retreat experience. All volunteers will receive an exclusive volunteer t-shirt as well. This Retreat would not be possible without the kick butt volunteers. Each volunteer is valued for their uniqueness and are appreciated and cherished.

What will I be doing?
