Volunteer opportunity for campground hosts! (All Forests)

June 19, 2019 all-day America/Los Angeles Timezone

Volunteer to serve as a campground host on a National Forest this summer! A camp host greets campers, provides information on the surrounding area, and generally makes campers feel at home. Hosts visit with campers and day-use visitors, clean and maintain restrooms, restock supplies, occasionally clean up after campers, and carry out minor maintenance as needed. They keep an eye on things and set a good example for others in the campground. Individuals or couples can apply to be hosts. Retirees often apply to the camp host program, finding it the ideal way to spend the summer in a beautiful setting. Hosts need to be friendly, flexible, and responsible. Host applicants may be subject to a criminal background check. Those who apply typically need to supply their own trailer, camper, or motor home, but a food allowance and propane is often offered, and personal vehicle mileage associated with hosting duties is reimbursed.
