Your chance to be a part of Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival! Apply to be a volunteer below! Applications for COG 2018 are now open.
Volunteer positions are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. We will be in touch if you’ve been approved to volunteer.
How does the volunteer application process work? Fill out our online application. The volunteer coordinator receives this application and makes notes of your details and requests. You will be contacted by June 10th and if you are selected, your position will be confirmed approx. 3 weeks prior to the festival. A preliminary schedule is made roughly 3 weeks before the event and the schedule is sent out via email to everyone. If there are any issues with your schedule at this point, you must contact the volunteer coordinator as soon as possible to let her know so she can make the appropriate adjustments. What kind of pass do I receive for working? All volunteers will be given a sport pass for the day to enter the grounds when working. Once your shift has been completed and your Zone Coordinator has signed your timesheet saying that you worked you can go to the volunteer tent to pick up your evening music pass. Evening Passes are given out at the discretion of the Volunteer Coordinator. Is there an age limit for volunteers? Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Anyone younger than 16 must be volunteering with a parent or guardian. What should I bring to volunteer shift? Volunteers must bring 2 (two) pieces of ID. One we will be taken as colateral and the other you need to have on you at all times to enter the beer gardens.
