FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How old do I have to be to volunteer?
You must be 18 years or older to be a volunteer at Causeacon.
Can I purchase a V.I.P. Gold Package ($55) and be reimbursed if I volunteer 15 hours?
Unfortunately the answer is no. We only have a limited supply of these packages so if you wish to purchase one you may but, you will not be reimbursed if you volunteer.
If I Pre-register online for a weekend pass for $25, then volunteer for 15 hours at Causeacon, do I get $30 dollars back?
No, you get reimbursed what you spent on your badge, not how much the badge is worth. We have records of online and on-site purchases so we will look to see how much you paid for your badge and that is how much you will get back.
What if I volunteered 14 hours but had to miss the last hour due to unforeseen circumstances?
The guideline clearly states you must volunteer 15 hours before you get reimbursement.
