Service Exchanges

Service Exchange & Managers

3HO International Women's Camp would not happen without Service Exchange participants. The success of the event depends on each person's dedication and commitment to doing seva (selfless service). If you decide to become a Service Exchange member or Manager, this will be the defining, predominant experience of your Women's Camp experience.

3HO supports you in a rewarding service experience and facilitates your participation in the class programming. Most Service Exchange participants can expect to participate in the majority of the program events. As a Service Exchange Team member your principal commitment is to make your service area successful. As a member of the team, you will serve approximately 4-5 hours a day in your service area.

This is an amazing way to experience International Women’s Camp.  While you will attend various aspects of the programming depending on your Service Area, you will deeply engage with the whole camp by doing self-less service alongside other women to create a sacred camp energy.  Many women say that doing a Service Exchange is a very personal and richly rewarding experience.  May you grow and glow through hard work, love and laughter through your service.

Registration Manager

The Registration Manager is responsible for setting up and running the On-Site Registration area. This includes being available during the Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration to complete registration for any last minute participants.

Registration set-up includes making sure that all signs, snacks, drinks, benches, chairs, forms, and everything else needed are present for our first big registration day, and preparing the area that will be used for registration throughout camp.

Throughout the week of camp the Registration Manager will be in the main teaching tent at the start of each morning class to pleasantly and efficiently check in all women arriving on-site with day passes or registering late for class in order to register and collect money from each of them; to take care of refunds or clerical errors, and to communicate daily with our 3HO bookkeeper to keep this process on track. During breakdown, she will make sure that all items in the registration area are properly stored or removed from the area, and that all accounts are clear and have been addressed with our 3HO bookkeeper.

While the Registration Manager is ‘on’ all throughout camp, her location assures that she misses very little class time. This position works closely with the 3HO Registration Director.

  • Prior experience working IWC registration is strongly encouraged. Work with the IWC Camp Manager before the event (via phone and email) as needed.
