Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
Full weekend volunteers who stay with us overnight have a $45 fee to help off-set costs. Full weekend volunteers are a "all hands on deck" volunteer who doesn't mind jumping in whenever and wherever needed! If you are attending DNOW as a group leader or chaperone, we would love to have you as "extra hands" but you'll be needed to lead and mentor your students instead of volunteering and will still qualify for the regular spot cost ($90 or $125).
Included with your cost for full weekend is your housing for Friday and Saturday night, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday and a shirt! Plus all the awesome programming and activities throughout the weekend.
Volunteers joining us for specific times or tasks will be provided the respective meal with your volunteer time (IE volunteers serving in the morning will be provided breakfast, those at mid-day will be provided lunch, etc) and a shirt!
You are also more than welcome to arrive early or stay late and enjoy the sessions or beautiful Fort Caswell. Lunch and/or dinner on Friday is not included.
What should we expect?
At DNOW we run "wide open" for the entire weekend! Volunteers help with things like holding the doors open for students to enter, helping with meals, replacing trash bags, moving tables and chairs, and making sure students are where they need to be! We ask that volunteers have a all hands on deck attitude towards serving and be willing to be flexible and adaptable to whatever may come our way! Those serving for specific tasks or times, we ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the time above.
What is available for dinner on Friday night?
You're welcome to arrive in Caswell at any time on Friday! If you happen to arrive before dinner time, you'll be on your own for dinner. There are plenty of food options right down the road from Fort Caswell, or Southport is about 25 minutes north. Our favorite is Provision Co in Southport!
