2023 Tahoe National Forest - Sierraville RD Camp Host Needed
ORGANIZATION: USDA Forest Service
Please visit the new page to apply.
Campground Hosts are expected to be available from mid-May to mid-October, five days a week with two consecutive days off per week. Longer breaks may be considered with prior approval. Season is subject to weather and occupancy. Hosts may be let go as early as Labor Day or as late as Columbus Day. Hosts are requested to be available for public interaction the majority of the day and expected to make full campground rounds early in the morning and evening. Hosts are not expected to contact visitors after daylight hours or to participate in law enforcement activities.
Local Recreation Staff will provide full training and support in duties. Hosts perform daily responsibilities independently without direct supervision. Forest Recreation employees will make near daily contact to provide support, perform heavy maintenance and regulatory compliance. On the Tahoe National Forest, you will be working individually in your designated campground, but also as part of a larger Forest-wide campground host program with up to 35 other volunteer hosts. Specific campsite conditions vary greatly from low elevation riverside campgrounds to higher elevation, mountain, and lakeside settings. The majority of Host's sites have minimal services. Some may have electricity, some may have water, and some have waste holding tanks.
The eastern side of the Tahoe National Forest is recruiting 1 volunteer host position for the 2023 summer camping season. Specific campground settings can be viewed via Recreation.gov

Volunteer recognition and reimbursement
The Tahoe National Forest reimburses volunteer Hosts $40 daily for approved "on duty" days. This reimbursement is intended to cover out of pocket expenses related to transportation, subsistence, propane and generator fuel that are necessary, reasonable, and arise as a result of voluntary work. To receive this reimbursement, Hosts must be US citizens or international volunteers holding J-1, F-1or B-1 visas.
In addition to reimbursement, volunteer campground hosts will be provided a complimentary campsite for the season, identifying uniform components, and personal protective equipment for assigned duties. Certain sites may be provided a government golf cart or utility vehicle to perform official duties. Volunteer hosts who complete a full season in good standing will receive an Interagency Volunteer Pass, valid 12 months from the date of issue.
