Join the team

Camp Creative offers an opportunity be part of a diverse and hardworking team – and a great time at a longstanding Bello community event.

Why volunteer?

Be part of the Bello community tradition of volunteering – and support Camp Creative, a true Bello institution!

Volunteer helpers love their time at the Camp – there’s a variety of roles, working with a supportive team – and volunteer contributions are always greatly valued.

If you’re new to Bellingen, or seeking some new connections, you’ll be welcomed by the Camp volunteer community – it’s a great way to meet interesting and creative people.

It's flexible

You can choose to:

Help out with setting up the Camp or packing down at the end of the week

Take on a role over the whole Camp week

Help during the Camp on the days and times you are available

How it works

Days & times

Places are available for helpers before and during the Camp week.

Let us know the days and times you are available – and if there’s a suitable role – we’ll get in touch to plan a schedule.

Pre-Camp roles – Friday the 5th to Sunday the 7th of January.

The pre-Camp working bee is on the Friday – a great way to meet the team.

Application process

If you’d like to volunteer please fill in the form below.

Looking at the roles, days and times listed on the left, tell us what your preferences are. Please note all volunteers need to have a current working with children check.

As things get really busy in the Camp Creative office in the lead up to camp, we may not respond immediately, but your interest and offer is appreciated and we will endeavour to get back to you in a timely manner.

What is in it for me?

Camp Creative is and always has been, run by volunteers. 

Every other role is carried out by our committee (who are all volunteers) and our wonderful community helpers.

So volunteering is just that.. awesome people gifting us their time to make this community event happen.
