Volunteers Sought for the 2012 Camden Windjammer Festival
Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and volunteers are needed for the 2012 Camden Windjammer Festival. Camden will once again play host to Maine's windjammer fleet, as well as a host of other special vessels- both commercial and private, living history exhibits, wonderful food, and flat-out family fun with the Camden Windjammer Festival..
Scores of volunteers are needed to make this weekend possible - there won't be a festival without them. Volunteers are signing up from all over the country but the festival can always use more.
Local residents, summer residents, and vacationers of all ages are invited to volunteer for at least a four-hour shift over the course of the weekend. Tasks include Set Up Crew, Entrance/Gate Assistant (may require you to stand for a long period of time), Parking Assistant (may require you to stand for a long period of time), Crate Race Helper, Dock and Float Safety Crew, Information Booth Welcome Crew, Build-A-Boat Contest Helper, Sea Dog Show Helper, and general assistance on the Public Landing for the Maritime Heritage Fair.
Volunteering is a great way to be right at the heart of the Camden Windjammer Festival while contributing invaluable help to the event and the community in a fun and enjoyable setting. Also, volunteers will be able to say that they helped stage one of the biggest parties on the Maine coast in celebration of our maritime heritage and community spirit. Volunteer t-shirts will be provided, and the event is also a great opportunity to wear your company or group branded clothing.
The Camden Windjammer Festival is a community-led celebration of Camden's maritime heritage and living traditions. The Festival was established recognize and celebrate the important role of the windjammer fleet and the role the Midcoast region's maritime heritage continues to play in shaping the lives of all residents.
