What is the difference between a chaperone and a volunteer?
Chaperones: Looking after high school attendees. Must stay the entire weekend. They are responsible for students in their group, help lead small groups, and make sure students are where they are supposed to be. Chaperones and students will receive the same event package.
Volunteers: Can be there all week, one day, or just a shift. Very flexible. They will only receive a volunteer t-shirt. They will sign up to help with tasks such as security, food, parking, check-in, etc.
