  • Wharf / Dock Marshals
  • Hot Drink/Cookie Servers
  • Campfire Monitors
  • Beach Exit / Hat Distributors
  • General Site & Safety Marshals
  • Photographers
  • More information for Volunteers:

Volunteers should arrive at 11:00 am. Dress Warm. Costumes Encouraged. The plan for the swim is that participants start only from the shore (not from the wharf) and will enter the water up to a rope boundary, which will not be very deep. Participants must register and sign a waiver. Participants may only be in the water for up to 5 minutes, and young children must be within arms reach of parents at all times. First Responders will be on site for safety. The wharf is only to be used for spectators (not for swimmers). Hot chocolate & cookies are free for participants, and $2 for spectators. A campfire will be on-site for warmth.

If you would like to volunteer on the day, please contact Lori Treloar at lori@ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Hope you are having a wonderful Holiday Season and to see you at the Shawnigan Shiver on New Year's Day!
