Fire pit monitors for S'Mores and More events in Parks!

Location:

Various Parks (see schedule for exact locations)
MD

Description

This coming winter, we don't want the fun to stop just because it is cold out, so we are hosting several s'more parties in our parks.

For those of you that don't know what those are, it's a marshmallow roasted over a fire, smashed between two graham crackers, with some chocolate bar thrown in for good measure!

We need volunteers to help us with managing our fire pits so that our park guests can take care of making their own ooey-gooey snacks (with a little help from volunteers!).

Volunteers will start fires in our fire pits, keep the fire going, make sure every thing is safe, and assist guests with creating their s'mores.

We are looking for mature and responsible volunteers, preferably with fire monitoring experience.

Volunteers under 18 must have a parent volunteer alongside them who would act as the lead fire monitor.

SSL Approved.
