Government housing is limited and is unavailable during certain times of the year. The majority of our volunteer opportunities require that people live within a reasonable commuting distance or locate their own lodging nearby. Cape Cod National Seashore does not have campgrounds, but there are privately operated campgrounds near the national seashore. There are two small trailer pads with hook-ups near headquarters for volunteers who wish to live in their own campers. Training, uniforms (if applicable), and supplies and equipment are provided for all positions. Some positions require driving, in which case a valid driver's license is required.
Several twelve-week internships are offered every year, with dates starting from spring through early fall. Most internships are in natural and cultural resource management and interpretation. All internship opportunities are posted at www.thesca.org. Housing is provided for these full-time interns.

Although the kettle ponds within Cape Cod National Seashore are within 2.5 km of the ocean and have been subjected to thousands of years of salt spray, they remain low in dissolved salts. Ponds are flushed out by inflowing and outflowing groundwater, which prevents salts from accumulating.
