Park Host Resident Program
Volunteer Park Host Openings:
Summer Park Hosts serve at both American and English camps. We prefer three-month commitments for summer positions as it is the height of the tourist season on San Juan Island.
The park has two trailer pads at American Camp with full hook-ups and spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca. The park reimburses ferry fares to the island.
Park hosts are usually the initial contact with visitors, and often the only contact the visitor has with the National Park Service. Duties include answering questions, giving directions and handling sales of books, postcards, pins and related materials. Park host couples must be physically fit, at least 21 years of age.
Contact: Mike Vouri, (360)378-2902. Or e-mail.
