I googled work camping and this was the first site that popped up, there are dozens more listed.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Welcome, Angels! This was one of the questions we asked about, too, as we researched full-timing. We finally settled on a work 1/3, volunteer 1/3, and "play" 1/3. After a year of full-timing, that ratio hasn't quite worked out. We've actually worked 1/2, volunteered 6 weeks, and "played" the rest of the time.

The work has been with our church group, Laborers For Christ, working on two different church projects. The volunteer time as been three 2-week Care-A-Vanner builds for Habitat For Humanity. We learned about them from a thread here.

In December we will do our first stint as a campground host. Originally we thought that we'd be doing that for several months each year, but were unsure about how to get involved. In September we just asked the campground hosts how to get such a job, and were told to talk to the park superintendent. We did, and were told to go online for the application form. We filled them out (both of us) and mailed them in. There was a job for November and December in that park, so we hurried. A few phone calls later we have the job for December (with it actually maybe starting in late November and possibly running into early January).

This is the season for applying for campground host positions. For State parks, check the State's park system website for information and forms. I think we got our job because we asked the person who made the decision personally - face to face.

I've checked the CoE site for campground host jobs there, but so far all I've found are ones that want a host for mid-May to mid-September at least, and some want them for the entire season.
