Interpretation and Visitor Services - RV Hookup Provided

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

The Charleston-area National Park Service units (Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historic Park, Charles Pinckney National Historic Site) are seeking a VIP for our summer season. Full RV-hookup is provided on-site at Charles Pinckney NHS, located in Mount Pleasant SC, for volunteers who work 4 days/ 32 hours per week.


Volunteers are expected to work for all three NPS sites while staying at the park- a schedule will be provided which directs the volunteer to their duty station each day. A vehicle separate from the RV is mandatory for transportation to duty stations, located approximately 25 minutes away from where the RV-hookup is located.


This position will run during the parks' busiest season. Average visitation can be over 2,000 people per day at some sites. The Charleston-area experiences high heat and humidity during the summer months. This is a fast-paced position that will best fit an individual with high energy and an outgoing personality. Walking on historic grounds, forts, and trails may be a strain for those with mobility difficulties. The VIP is expected to work with visitors, staff, rangers, interns, and other volunteers in a friendly and positive manner.


RV-VIP's are allowed a maximum of four months stay at the Charleston-area NPS sites. Please expect an RV "neighbor" to be at one of the other RV pads near you. A washer and dryer for laundry is provided. Keys will be issued for entering park grounds.


Please provide professional references when applying.


Additional information can be acquired by calling VIP Supervisor Kaley C. at 843-729-6968.
