At the upcoming Seattle RV & Outdoor Recreation Show February 11th – 14th at Qwest Field Event Center, Washington State Parks will be presenting a daily seminar entitled Volunteering in Washington State Parks. State Parks is suffering through the economic downturn along with everyone else, hosting is a great opportunity to help State Parks and yourself. Your volunteer labor saves the State Parks personnel costs, while you score a free full hook up RV space in exchange.
Following is an overview of the program from the Washington State Parks website:
As a host, you will represent state parks by greeting the public and helping set the tone for a pleasant stay. Hosts assist park staff and perform a variety of tasks depending on the park and the type of host assignment. Hosts receive free camping and hookups in exchange for performing these duties. A typical host assignment is 30 days. This may be extended up to 90 days at the park manager’s discretion. Hosts must provide their own RV and camping equipment. Hosts should enjoy working with the public, have the desire to accept new challenges and possess the willingness to learn about Washington state parks.
Camp hosts assist at overnight and day-use parks. They greet campers, answer questions and perform light maintenance particular to the park. This may include litter pick up, raking campsites or lawn mowing. Hosts may assist with other projects around the park based on the parks needs and the hosts’ skills and interests.
