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. 

 

Required for all volunteers 17 years old and under

ALL volunteers must read the Volunteer Handbook thoroughly. By signing your application, you are acknowledging that you (and a parent or guardian if under 18) have read and understand the Volunteer Handbook. 

 

The Actor Handbook is a supplement to the Volunteer Handbook. By signing your application, you are acknowledging that you (and a parent or guardian if under 18) have read and understand. As an actor you are responsible for reading, understanding, and complying with all rules and regulations set forth in both of the Nightmare at Beaver Lake Handbooks.

NIGHTLY DURING SHOW: Everyone must sign in at the Volunteer Table(s) in the lodge upon arrival. Volunteers 17 years old and younger must adhere to the following guidelines. No exceptions, thank you!

· 12 year olds may only volunteer WITH a parent/guardian in set with them.

· 13 year olds may not be left alone at the show and a parent/guardian is required to stay on park premises during the entire evening.

· 14 and 15 year olds must have a parent/guardian come into the lodge each night to sign them in and out.

· 16 and 17 year olds may sign themselves in and out ONLY if the Youth Log-in Sheet has been signed by a parent/guardian.

NOTE: if any minor does not sign out or is not signed out by a parent/guardian (depending on age) at the end of the evening, the parent/guardian will be called.

CONSTRUCTION AND TEAR DOWN: Volunteering for Construction, Set Design, and Tear down requires the same set of rules as stated above, plus the additional rules stated below.

All volunteers must sign up for their desired time slot on CERVIS 24 hours prior to volunteering. For safety and time management reasons, we need to know exactly who is coming and when! The construction team leader may contact you to assess skills, preferences and communicate additional instructions. If you do not sign up prior to volunteering, you may be turned away.

Sign In/ Out Procedures

During daylight hours sign in at the volunteer table under the pop up tent located in front of pavilion. After 5pm, sign in/sign out book will be in “Ops Trailer” in woods. If no one is at the pop up tent or the trailer, call team leader via cell phone. Phone numbers will be posted at the pop up tent or in the ops trailer.

Everyone must sign in upon arrival to the park. Volunteers 17 years old and younger must adhere to the following guidelines. No exceptions, thank you!

Construction begins at Beaver Lake Park daily starting on September 23th at 10am. - MAIN BUILD DATES - 9/23-24, 9/30-10/1, 10/7-8 - 10am daily until dark

Mandatory Actor Training (returning actors please take note) - October 7th and 8th

Actor training will be held from 11AM -3PM each day.  There will not be a lunch break, and there are no food services in the park.  Please bring a labeled water bottle (your fancy NIGHTMARE one, If you got one!) and snacks if you need them.  All actors with less than 3 years of acting (in our show) are required to attend at least 1 day of actor training.  All other actors are strongly encouraged to attend. This is where you will find out about the roles we have available for 2017.  Did I mention that ALL ACTORS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND?!   There will be a tour of the sets from 3:30pm-4:30pm. If you have any acting training or casting questions please contact jeannie.peck@scare.com.

Have all of you signed up on our CERVIS registration page? It can be found on the volunteer page at www.nightmareatbeaverlake.com.

Calling all make-up artists!

We are having our annual make-up training on Saturday, October 7th, 2017 from 3pm-6pm. Please come prepared to put make-up on yourself and others. This year we will be open October 12 (press night), 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 30 & 31 please be sure to bring your availability as space is limited each night. Even if you have done make-up in the past you should still attend the training so you are aware of this year's make-up needs. IF you are wanting to act and do make-up on the same night you will need to make prior arrangements with the Casting, Wardrobe and Make-up departments and show up early enough to get ready before the make-up department opens, you must be able to do your own make-up on yourself OR you need to go into set at one of our full scare sets that go out at 8pm. If you have any questions please email Dawn at dawn.gonser@scare.com.

Have all of you signed up on our CERVIS registration page? It can be found on the volunteer page at www.nightmareatbeaverlake.com.

Casting notes

Casting for the show will start at 5 p.m. nightly. We will be casting 12 year olds with parents first, then those over the age of 18, then followed by the younger ages. There will be an opportunity after each show to pre-cast for the following night.

Casting assistants

As in the past, we will need casting assistants. This is a perfect position for those parents that need to be on-site. Training will be at 3:30 pm Saturday October 7th and the 8th. Please meet on the steps of the Lodge. You only need to attend 1 or the other. Casting assistants provide constant monitoring of the actors for water, bathroom breaks and issues.

ScareCare

ScareCare is onsite child care for the children of our volunteers. We will need several volunteers to run this. You will need to be 16+ to volunteer for ScareCare. Children will be logged in and out nightly. On Halloween night, you have the opportunity to take the kids Trick or Treating in the neighborhood. Please contact or see Jeannie.peck@scare.com if you are interested in ScareCare. ScareCare providers are required to register on CERVIS.

Security Training

Would you like to be part of the show, but don’t want to act? Are you a parent that needs to be on-site for your 13 year old? Security may be the job for you. We have security stationed throughout the show nightly. Security training will be October 7th and 8th, at 3:30 p.m. on the steps of the lodge. Please register through CERVIS for whichever day you can make it.

Security is open to 18 and up. If you are 16 or 17 with an interest in law enforcement are also encouraged to apply.

Attention Scare Net shoppers...

Again this year Scare Security has stepped up and will have 2 way communications with each set. We will issue new radios to each room leader and they will offer the following features.

A Panic button, to be used in the event of imminent danger or other such issue. This will broadcast your location and send help running.

A Casting Help button...this will alert a Casting team member

2 way communications in the event we need to talk to you...

Every security up grade makes the show a little safer, by providing a safer environment we can expand the creativity of the actors, but remember there is still your personal safety zone...not your out stretched arm...but theirs!

This new security protocol will be explained in great detail every night at notes.

Scarewear

Jeannie will be taking orders (and payment) for Scareware at the Orientation.  $10 for a T-shirt, $12 for a women’s tank and $25 for a hoodie.  $5 extra for 2X and larger.  Cash or check only.
