Become a Volunteer

We need you! We're looking for volunteers to help build, setup and operate our haunts this year. We'll be showcasing at both
Midsummer Scream in August, as well as the main event at Halloween time. This year we are benefitting a local food bank and
also an animal shelter.

There's no minimum committment of time, and we accept all skill levels! If you can hold a paint brush, we can use your
help!

Volunteers will be able to help with lots of cool stuff, including set dressing, set building, scenic painting. lighting, sound,
special effects, acting logistics & management and more. Also, we'll have a great volunteer incentives.

Here are some common questions and answers:

 

How often do I need to work?

As often as you are able/willing. There are no miniums, but there will be prizes for the best attendance and more!

What kind of work will be expected of me?

If you can hold a paintbrush you are skilled enough to help. Scenery painting, foam carving/sculpting, set dressing, construction, special effects and audio setup are all part of the project. We'll teach you anything you need to know.

Who the hell is "Balthazar"?

He was the original Gothic Hills Cemetery keeper, played by Troy. Not a great guy. The character is retired now, but kind of sticks around as sort of a mascot.

What about the heat?

Unfortunately, it's a part of the build season. We do work through it, but provide plenty of shade, and have large industrial fans as well. On the hottest of days we have cooling mist running that really help too.

Do you feed us?

We do provide meals on days where we're working more than 6 hours. (Usually the weekend days.) On days when we don't provide a meal, you're welcome to bring your own or contribute (voluntarily) $10 to the take-out order. We'll let you know ahead of time if you need to bring lunch/dinner/etc. Be sure to let us know if you have any dietary needs.

Can my children help?

Kids 12 and up are welcome to lend a hand, but you must be present by their side at all times and are fully responsible for their safety and behavior. Much of the work we do wouldn't be appropriate for young children, and the build area can be dangerous.

Will there be a party?

Probably.

What is the schedule?

See Above. The schedule is subject to change depending on weather and production needs. Please make sure to stay tuned to the Facebook group (also above) for the latest details.

I would like to help but I don’t live nearby. Can I do something?

Yes! We're open to experienced haunters helping remotely. Contact us to discuss how you can help!
