Anyone working for Amazon this season? Danielle and I are considering the CamperForce program for the 2013 season. We're planning the calendar for late 2013 and trying to decide if we'll end up in KY or one of the other locations.

Summer Campground Host Position in AZ

Received this today from Recreation Resource Management;

We need host couples for the summer season of 2013 at a campground on Mt. Lemon in the Coronado National Forest near Tucson, AZ. These positions pay a wage plus the host site and utilities.

Please contact Carey Hamblin at with your resume or background if you are interested. Make sure to include your contact information. Please do not respond unless you are interested in this specific location.

We are working for this season (4th year, 1 in KS, 3 in KY). If based in GA, KY would be the logical choice to try it out. A word of warning tho': This is a warehouse and it is hard work. The require you to meet certain production goals and, in the 4 years we have been doing it, this year has seen a clear change (read: INCREASED) in what they are requiring of you AND performance expectations. THIS IS NOT a host job!

They are currently posting for 2013 positions so now is a good time to give it a try.

You also want to make sure you make your Campground reservations ASAP.

If you wait about two weeks from now, people will be leaving and you might get more "I ahte this job" responses. Standard of rule here is wait to decide until you are not so sore!

I have spent the last three summers working for the National Park Service as an Interpretive Ranger. I started working on my retirement plan during the last two years of my employment as a history teacher in the Arizona public schools. Through the Teacher- Ranger- Teacher program offered by the NPS, I got a chance to work during the summer break as an Interp Ranger at two different parks. After my retirement, and with that experience, I was hired by the NPS as a full-time seasonal Interp at Mesa Verde. Full time seasonals typically work anywhere from three to six months.
I live in the park in my Argosy and love this job. This may be an option for some. The NPS has three classifications of Rangers: Interp- leads tours and man the visitor centers. Experience in History, Biology, Geology, Anthropology, depending on the park, is helpful. Protection- Law Enforcement requires a Park Service Type II LE Certificate. Visitor Use- Collects fees and mans the entrance kiosks. Also sells merchandise in the visitor centers. Experience in finance, retail sales or high volume customer contact is helpful. Other jobs include maintenance, health techs, equipment operators and lifeguards.
Other Park jobs are in hospitality. The NPS has concessionaires who run the lodges and restaurants. Employees work for the concessionaire. One of the big ones is AAMARK. There are others, so check out the park that interests you.
There is a very large sub-culture of people who work one park in the summer, and then go south and work another park in the winter.
It's not for everyone, but if you love people and the challenge of mastering the information needed for the job, its alot of fun.
Oh, and did I mention that you get to live in your AS in places others can only dream about?
For more info, contact: and type in NPS in "What".
