Bear Crossing is a completely volunteer run event primarily made up of members of the Kansas City Bear Mafia. However, we also need your help! We are looking for volunteers to help us out during the event. By volunteering for at least 3 shifts you can register for Bear Crossing at only $59! That's more than half off the entry level price!
Your pass gives you the same benefits and access as our regular "Explorer" pass which is good for all events Thursday through Sunday excluding any paid excursions if applicable. You are still required to book and pay for your own hotel room, just like regular guests.
If you're traveling by yourself volunteering is a fantastic way to meet new people. If you're representing another bear club or event this is also a great way of introducing yourself and promoting your club or event.
After entering your contact info you can choose from many different shifts for each day of the event. We have two levels of shifts. Constellation and Galaxy Class shifts. You must select at least one Galaxy Class shift in order to qualify for the discount and a total of three shifts. For each shift we have listed the types of events and duties you will be potentially assigned to based upon your comfort and skill level.
Medium lifting may be necessary for some jobs. Some duties may require you to be responsible for collecting money and operating computers or mobile devices in order to register an attendee or the purchase of ala carte tickets and merchandise. Several events require the serving of hot food. If you are not sure that you can perform these duties be sure to communicate that to the Volunteer Captain. They will make sure you are only assigned duties you're comfortable carrying out.
