Work on Rocky Mountain National Park’s east side as a campground host, attending to guests and supporting staff.

Schedule: 3 days on, 3 days off. You will work with another campground host over the summer. Hosts will need to serve at least 32 hours a week to qualify for park housing (an RV site). (Example: Campground hosts may serve 8 hours Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of one week, and then take off Thursday-Saturday, and work another 8 hour shift on Sunday, for a total of 32 hours in a week. Specific days/hours are up to the campground hosts to decide between themselves. The 8 hour shifts do not need to be served consecutively in one day, you can take a break in the middle of the day to see the park or run errands. Schedules will be reviewed by the position supervisor.)

Trailer spots have full hookups: electric, sewer, and water.
