Volunteer Information

 

Without our amazing volunteers Nightmare at Beaver Lake would have no way to accomplish our amazing mission. We are always on the lookout for dedicated and helpful individuals to add to the crew.

We are currently seeking volunteers in many areas including:

  • Acting
  • Security
  • Set design
  • Line control
  • Drivers
  • ... and MUCH MORE


All volunteer actors must be at least 12 years old. At age 12, we require that a parent or guardian must act on the same set with the child. At age 13, a parent or guardian must remain on the premises while the child is volunteering. Don't worry mom and dad, we have numerous fun volunteer activities for adults as well!

If you have an interest, you can sign up with us and pick the areas where you think you can make a difference. In the EVENT LISTING AND REGISTRATION section to the right you can see the current volunteer opportunities and how many of each time slot we need to fill.

To volunteer, just click the 'Sign In To Manage Your Profile' button at the bottom of the form (you might need to scroll down if there are many opportunities open). If you are not already registered with our volunteer tracking system you will be directed to do so. Otherwise, enter your login information for the CERVIS system and then you can start volunteering!

Please see volunteer documents below and bring completed forms to training or otherwise deliver to Nightmare staff. Returning volunteers - please note, all required forms must be completed each year.
