Volunteer Campground Host Openings at Chickasaw NRA
Contact: Eric Leonard, 580 622-7282
Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, OK, is now accepting applications for campground host positions for the summer 2010 season at 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, assist campers in using automated fee machines, 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. The length of stay will vary based on park needs and volunteer availability. The positions may begin immediately.
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 nps.gov/chic/supportyourpark/volunteer.htm, call Park Ranger Eric Leonard at 580 622-7282, or Eric_Leonard@nps.gov.
