Want to Work Camp? Go West Young Man! Go West Young Woman!

Niki and I just received this note and will be adding “Hoodo” to our work camping listings on our webpage at http://www.snowbirdrvtrails.com/workamping.htm. “Hoodoo Recreation” is responsible for 150 campgrounds in the Northwest.

“I just stumbled upon your site (Love it!).  I thought you might want to add HooDoo Recreation (out of Oregon) to your source for workamping opportunities in Washington and Oregon states.  I’ve hosted for them before (as a local emergency host) and most places are for FHU RV site + pay!  Love Hoodoo!” -B&L

The following is from the HooDoo website:
“Our hosts range from “volunteers” who receive a stipend to help pay for utilities to mostly full time attendants and managers who receive a place to stay and a higher salary. About half of our host sites have electrical hookups along with water and vaults. The earlier you commit to working with Hoodoo, the better the chances are that you will get the location that you want. In general though the nicer the campground and the better the hookups. The lower the wage, the more isolated the campground the higher the wage.

We have more then a hundred hosted campgrounds in Washington in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie, Wenatchee and Gifford Pinchot National Forests or in the Deschutes National Forests in Oregon. About a third of the campgrounds will have hosts living in the campgrounds and the other two-thirds will have attendants who stay in one campground and visit other campgrounds as well. Hoodoo provides work trucks for almost all attendants who have to travel as part of the job. We start our hiring process in October, but hire throughout the season through August.”

Travel safe and enjoy life’s journey,
Jack and Niki

Volunteering on the Tahoe National Forest
Welcome to the Tahoe National Forest located in the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. This diverse landscape offers 850,000 acres of forests, meadows, lakes, rivers and snowcapped peaks, stretching from the Foothills east of Sacramento at an elevation of 1500ft, over the Pacific Crest at 9000ft and down to the Nevada state line near Reno.
The unique scenic, historic and recreation opportunities of the Tahoe National Forest, combined with its close proximity to multiple, major metropolitan areas attracts over six million visitors a year and creates one of the most popular National Forests in the country.
As a Campground Host you will often be the first Forest representative the visiting public encounters and the first person they will consider for information regarding the area and their National Forest. Volunteer Campground Host’s are an integral part of the Forest recreation program and are critical in achieving the Forest service mission of “caring for the Land and Serving the people” as such, we are seeking individuals who can represent the Tahoe National Forest in a professional and courteous manner.
Campground Hosts are expected to be available from mid-May to mid-October, five days a week with two consecutive days off per week. Longer breaks may be considered with prior approval. Hosts are requested to be available for public interaction the majority of the day and expected to make full campground rounds early in the morning and evening. Hosts are not expected to contact visitors after daylight hours or to participate in law enforcement activities.
Excellent volunteer candidates for these positions will have the following strengths:
Outgoing personality with strong verbal communication skills
Ability to perform light maintenance work in outdoor conditions
Ability to maintain daily written logs
Ability to interact with diverse visitors while maintaining a positive, helpful and non-confrontational attitude
Host Duties will include the following:
· Welcoming visitors and providing appropriate Forest information
· Informing visitors of Forest Regulations and campground Courtesy Rules
· Encouraging fee compliance and Courtesy Rule adherence
· Tracking daily arrivals and posting incoming reservations
· Performing light landscape and bathroom maintenance.
· Reporting emergencies and providing District Recreation staff with pertinent daily information
· Setting a positive camping example for other forest visitors, keeping a clean, presentable and welcoming campsite and encouraging common courtesy throughout the campground.
Requirements of the positions
Pass a minimal background check and possess a valid state driver’s license.
Volunteer 4 hours a day / 20 hours weekly and be available other times for public interactions
Provide your own personal RV accommodations maintained to be welcoming and approachable by the public.
Local Recreation Staff will provide full training and support in duties. Hosts perform daily responsibilities independently without direct supervision. Forest Recreation employees will make near daily contact to provide support, heavy maintenance and regulatory compliance. On the Tahoe National Forest you will be working individually in your designated campground, but also as part of a larger Forest wide campground host program with up to 35 other volunteer hosts. Specific campsite conditions vary greatly from low elevation riverside campgrounds to higher elevation, mountain, lakeside settings. The majority of Hosts sites have minimal services. Some may have electricity, some may have water and some have waste holding tanks.

Volunteer recognition and reimbursement
With varying and possibly minimal site services in mind, the Tahoe National Forest reimburses Volunteer Hosts $40 daily for “on duty” days. This reimbursement is intended to cover out of pocket expenses related to transportation, subsistence, propane and generator fuel that are necessary, reasonable and arise as a result of voluntary work. In order to receive this reimbursement, Hosts must be US citizens or international volunteers holding J-1, F-1or B-1 Visa’s. In addition to Reimbursement, volunteer campground hosts will be provided a complimentary campsite for the season, uniform components and personal protective equipment for assigned duties. Certain sites may be provided a government golf cart or utility vehicle to perform official duties. Volunteer hosts who complete a full season in good standing will receive an Interagency Volunteer Pass, valid 12 months from the date of issue. This pass grants the holder / signee and up to 3 accompanying adult’s access to Federal Recreation sites, including BLM, FWS, NPS and USFS sites that charge standard entrance fees, (overnight camping excluded)
For additional information, please email the program contacts listed at the top of the individual listings.
Becoming a Volunteer Host in one of the nation’s premier Forests can be competitive and these positions may fill quickly. Please be ready to provide a brief resume and reference. We anticipate making selections and seasonal agreements by January 2016.
Thank you for your help in broadcasting these opportunities, we look forward to hearing from your readers
