Campground Host Opportunities in 2011
Contact: Lauren Gurniewicz, 580-622-7282
Chickasaw National Recreation Area 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 grateful 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 given to ensure you will look forward to your job every day. 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.
