Volunteers must be 16 years and older to volunteer without a parent, guardian or group leader. Minimum age for volunteers accompanied by an adult (for the duration of the shift) is 10 years old. We require at least one adult for every 8 volunteers under the age of 16. For example, if a group has 10 volunteers under the age of 16, the organization will need to have 2 adults present for the entire shift.
