This is a unique opportunity for the right person or couple to volunteer camp host with CA State Parks in Big Sur. Enjoy some of the most magnificent, rugged coastline in the world! Expect specatular waterfalls, majestic redwood forests, miles of hiking trails, crystal clear waters, and abundant wildlife. You will be nestled in a remote, small community along scenic Hwy 1, with moderate temperature year-round. Big Sur has been described as a spiritual center, and is a source of inspiration for artists and naturalists worldwide. However, this may not be the ideal arrangement if you have a large RV or trailer due to the limits of narrow, winding Hwy 1.
A minimum 20 hours per week for at least a 3 month commitment is requested. Typical camp host duties include cash handling, firewood sales, staffing the Visitor's Center, interpretation, light maintenance, conducting whale watches, assisting park staff, and campground checks. In addition, you will be asked to share your own special skills, interests and talents.
A uniform is provided. Your campsite includes water and electrical hook-ups. Sewer service is a once a week pump out. The city of Monterey is approximately 1 hr drive away.
Camp Host positions are available year-round in three CA State Parks in Big Sur: Andrew Molera, Julia Pfeiffer Burns and Pfeiffer Big Sur. Each unique park provides a different experience.
I am most interested in folks who are available this summer.
