Get Involed

As an all-volunteer organization, we count on the support of our community to make sure everything runs smoothly. From our Attendees to our Leadership Team, it takes a village to make it all happen.

We appreciate those currently involved and would love to have you join our little family!


Volunteer Opportunities

Be it wood busts, camp projects, event shifts, inventory organization, or helping us pass out info for events, there are always times throughout the year when we need extra hands.

We’ll post opportunities here so peek in from time to time. We count on people like you!

We are currently looking for HSA Members, HPF Work Exchange volunteers to help us at our HPF2023: Into the Night event, and even people who would just love to occasionally help!


Check out our Team & Committee List to get familiar with our teams. We are on the hunt for someone to lead our Registration and Site committees. If you have an interest in diving this deep, contact Community Involvement Coordinator at

We would love to have you join our Family!!
