Volunteer with Bog Escape!
We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
Bog Escape Guide
"Bog Escape: The Wild Adventure Series" is a series of "Escape Adventures" that the Burns Bog Conservation Society has designed so that everyone (including you, your family and your friends) can enjoy the unique environment of Burns Bog.
Bog Escape is a blend of your classic escape room (where groups use their wits to puzzle their way out of a room) and an outdoor adventure. This event will take place over weekends throughout the summer - and at Halloween.
Duties and Responsibilities
Your duties may include the following:
- Testing puzzles prior to event start
- Assisting with event setup
- Welcoming members of the public to the event
- Guiding members of the public through event
- Resetting puzzles and troubleshooting
- Taking pictures to promote the event on social media
- Assisting with event takedown
You will learn the following skills:
- Customer Service training
- Event running and Support
- Experience with dealing with the public
- Radio etiquette training
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a positive attitude. If you enjoy the outdoors and interacting with people, this position will be a good fit for you. Prior customer service experience will be a strong asset.
Once interviewed and accepted, all volunteers will receive training during a group orientation. The weather may be a factor as we will be working outside, so please dress appropriately.
