|What does it take
to be a camp host?
|Life style change. You need to decide if you can give up
the collections and treasures that you have acquired
throughout your life, give up the comfort of your home
and live in a much smaller home with your traveling
Living in a motor coach is the only place you can spend
the day cooking a gourmet meal and then serve it on
paper plates! You learn plastic wine glasses are great!
OK , now here is where you get to make that lifestyle
change. If you are looking for adventure, travel , then
apply to be a camp host or just work in a campground.
There are many campgrounds throughout the country
where you can apply and either be paid (usually
minimum wage) or work for your site. Remember some
sites run anywhere from $400 - $800 a month.
You can find campground jobs on many sites on the
Internet. Many states, counties, National Parks and
private campgrounds are looking for people to help out.
Many advertise on Craig's List, WorkKamper and other
We continually look on Internet sites to find out if
anyone is hiring and if anyplace looks interesting to us.
We check out their web sites and pictures and then view
some of the remarks by campers who have stayed
there. If the campground looks interesting to us we may
apply. We sometimes apply for a few jobs because the
jobs positions get filled very quickly.
Remember that all campgrounds require different things
when you apply. Some want a resume, drug test, finger
prints and letters of recommendation.
We have heard many people say, "We were going to do
that but one of us got sick and we couldn't". Don't let
that be you!
