Looking for a spring and summer gig in the outdoors? The Chickasaw National Recreation Area has some job opportunities for people who would like to work at the park’s campsites as hosts.
Below is a summary of the job and information about how to apply, with information courtesy of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
Spring/Summer 2011 Volunteer Campground Host Opportunities at Chickasaw NRA
Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, Oklahoma, is now accepting applications for multiple campground host positions for the 2011 season. Positions are available at the Point, Buckhorn, Cold Springs, and Rock Creek campgrounds.
Campground hosts are the eyes and ears of the park campgrounds. As a campground host, you will help visitors relax, find their campsite, and settle in for their stay at the park. Hosts greet visitors, answer questions, inform campers of rules and regulations, respond to minor emergency situations, conduct light grounds maintenance, and restock restroom supplies. Training and support will be provided. An RV site with full hook-ups and uniforms will be provided. Start/end dates and length of stay will vary based on park needs and volunteer availability.
All volunteers should possess a desire to learn, excellent communication skills, and have an interest in park resources. These exciting volunteer positions are wonderful ways to meet interesting people and to learn about the National Park Service. For more information or to apply, visit www.nps.gov/chic/supportyourpark/volunteer.htm, call Volunteer Coordinator Lauren Gurniewicz at (580) 622-7282, or e-mail at Lauren_Gurniewicz@nps.gov.
Sounds like this could be a good gig. Anyone out there done this job before? I’d be curious about what it’s like to be the “eyes and ears” of the recreation area…
