Without our community of passionate volunteers, Rain City Rock Camp could not exist. We recently won BECU’s Member Volunteer of the Year Award, and we are proud of our loyal and engaged community of volunteers!

We’re always in need of volunteers with diverse perspectives and diverse skill sets. Rain City Rock Camp couldn’t be successful without all the talented, passionate volunteers who come together to make our programs special.

Supporting our volunteer community is a priority for RCRC, which is why we’ve launched our new Passport Volunteer Enrichment Program to build confidence, increase community support, and improve outcomes for our campers.

We need about 100 volunteers to make Summer Camp a success each year. Our Summer Camp volunteers are camp counselors, instrument instructors, band coaches, mental health crew members, food crew members, camp support crew members, front desk volunteers, runners, nurses, doctors, camp photographers and videographers, set-up and tear-down volunteers, and showcase volunteers.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We have been carefully following the course of the COVID-19 outbreak hoping that we would still be able to hold our summer programs in person. But, after considering all of the information currently available, we have decided that the best way to protect the health and safety of the RCRC community is to switch Summer Camp, South Sound Rocks and our Advanced Music Program (AMP) to a virtual format. We are sad that we won’t get to see our amazing campers in person this year, but we’re also excited to explore new ways of gathering together online to support each other, express ourselves and make some music! And, we’re going to need volunteers’ help more than ever! Since geographic location doesn’t matter in a virtual setting, we’ll be combining South Sound Rocks! and our Seattle Summer Camp into one big Virtual Summer Camp serving campers from the Tacoma and Seattle areas!

We need lots of folks to help make LRC an amazing experience for our campers, and we now have two kinds of volunteer opportunities—teaching artists and support crew. Teaching Artists are folks who teach instrument instruction and workshops or coach a band. Support Crew are folks who help set up, tear down, and run LRC throughout the weekend. Everyone is welcome to sign up to be a part of this crew.

Coronavirus Update: It is with heavy hearts that we announce we will not be holding an in-person LRC in May. The health and safety of our community must come first. This decision was not made lightly, and we are now focusing on how we can continue to empower our RCRC family during this crisis.

We WILL still be rocking out together virtually, and we’d like your help deciding how! Give us your thoughts at raincityrockcamp.org/community-survey!
