Living the Past at Jensen Alvarado Historic Ranch!
Here we have a Docent, educating children on how we may have lived in the 1880's.

Live at Rancho Jurupa Park in your motorhome or trailer and work at beautiful Jensen-Alvardo Historical Ranch. Duties will include customer service, feeding animals, gardening, and interpretive work.

The primary role of a camp host is to provide park visitors with information, assistance and services. This is accomplished by encouraging compliance with park rules and regulations, acting as a contact in the event that emergencies occur when a ranger is off duty, and, when trained and authorized, collecting fees from a kiosk. Depending on the location, additional camp host roles may include, interpreting resources, maintaining facilities and/or landscaping, removing litter, making simple repairs, and performing light housekeeping and janitorial duties or other work as assigned to support park operations.

  • Camp Host volunteers fulfill a minimum of 20 work hours per week in exchange for a rent-free campsite, which includes electrical (nominal monthly fee), water, and sewer hookups, where hosts may park a suitable motor home or travel trailer in good repair, subject to approval by the site supervisor.
