Volunteer Camping

If you have already been accepted as a volunteer and want to camp, you must purchase a volunteer camping pass by Sept. 1, 2017. We have reserved plenty of space for volunteers in the South Group Campground. Even if the campground sells out, we will have space for you.

If you want to camp in the Main Campground, the West Campground or the RV Campground you will need to reserve your site on your own when camping goes on sale in March. If you are accepted as a volunteer, the 3-day festival pass portion of your purchase will be refunded.

All volunteers not pre-reserving a site in the Main Campground, West Campground or the RV Campground will be able to purchase a spot in Group South for $35.00 per volunteer. Only tent camping or trailers 14 feet (including the hitch) or less are allowed in the Group South Campground. All people in the party camping must be volunteering or purchase the appropriate campass. (3 day festival pass with camping).

Please mail a check for $35 by Sept. 1 to:
Pickin’ in the Pines
PO Box 23701
Flagstaff, AZ  86002
*Make sure you put the name of the volunteer(s) in the memo

Volunteer Orientation Meeting: September 14, 2017

The Volunteer Orientation Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 5:30 pm at Fort Tuthill County Park, Navajo Ramada. This is a mandatory meeting, PLEASE do everything you can to attend this meeting. This meeting is the first and last pre-Festival, all-volunteer get-together. It is part meet-and-greet, part instruction seminar, part excitement builder, part question-and-answer, and part wristband and t-shirt distribution. You will meet with your fellow volunteers and Volunteer Supervisors, Anna Good and Anthony Hessel.

What if I cannot attend the Volunteer Orientation Meeting?

PLEASE do everything you can to attend this meeting. Special arrangements will be made for campground volunteers who will already be on duty during the meeting. If you are absolutely unable to attend, please let your section head know via phone or email and they will coordinate with you, and notify the volunteer supervisors via email at volunteer@pickininthepines.org so that they know to train you when you arrive.

If you cannot attend, you must make sure you visit the Volunteer Table at the Festival (identified on a map you will receive) at least 1 hour in advance of your first volunteer shift (or your first entrance into the amphitheater, since you won’t have your festival pass yet). The relevant information, wristband, and volunteer t-shirt will be provided to you there.
