4 local parks search for volunteers to serve as hosts

April 26, 2012

The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is seeking volunteers to serve as hosts at state parks throughout Washington.

These openings include host positions at Ocean City, Pacific Beach, Schafer, and Twin Harbors parks.

The Washington State Parks Host Program offers volunteers the chance to stay in the park while gaining experience in park operations and visitor services. Hosts are needed year round in state parks all across Washington.

Hosts represent state parks by greeting the public and helping set the tone for visitors. They assist park staff and perform a variety of tasks depending on the park and the type of host assignment. Hosts receive free camping and hookups in exchange for performing these duties. A typical host assignment is 30 days, but may be extended up to 90 days at the park manager’s discretion. Hosts must provide their own RV and camping equipment.

For a complete list of volunteer and host openings, visit www.parks.wa.gov/volunteers or stop by the State Parks booth from May 3 through 6 at the Puyallup Fair and Events Center in Puyallup.
