Job Description of a Camp Host
Because each camp host’s assignment is not the
same, we can’t detail each specific task at all campgrounds.
The following is a description of general duties that can be expected
in most assignments. Please keep in mind that other related tasks
or assignments may be given by the Area Manager or one of the corporate staff.
Meeting and Greeting the Public -
The most important responsibility you will have is good customer service.
We have built our company based on customer service.
You will need to have good people skills, a positive attitude, and the ability
to defuse potentially confrontational situations.
Collecting and Accounting for Fees -
Approaching campers for payment of camping fees and collection
of fee envelopes from fee tubes. Fees collected will be entered on
Daily Fee Sheets. All monies will be remitted to your Area Manager for audit
and bank deposit.
Cleaning and Maintaining the Campgrounds - Camp
hosts pick up litter, clean restrooms, remove
ashes from fire rings, do weed trimming and possibly lawn mowing.
You might also do routine maintenance like paint picnic tables
American Land & Leisure supplies all of the materials required.
Some campground hosts use their own vehicles and have more than one
campground to care for. If your job assignment requires
driving between campgrounds, we pay mileage when you use your personal
Your work schedule will be flexible. You will be busiest on the
weekends when the campers are in the campgrounds. Plan to work
a few hours a day, six days a week and have a day off in the middle of the week.
We pay minimum wage for the state you're working in, and we provide
your campsite and the hookups that are available in your campground.
Each member of the couple can expect to work about 20 hours per
week. Couples can expect to make from $700 to $1,300 per month.
Most of our host sites offer water and sewer hookups. Only about 15% of the
sites we manage in the National Forest come with full hookups. If you
require full hookups, you decrease your opportunity for employment.
Most of our campground hosts use their own generators or solar panels as a power source.
American Land & Leisure employs single campground hosts where the workload
warrants only one person.
Most employment opportunities begin in May and end in September with Memorial Day
to Labor Day being the heart of the season. We have very few year round opportunities.
Employees are expected to complete the entire season of their assignment.
Uniforms are required and are provided by American Land & Leisure.
Employees are given one day off per week. This is usually a Tuesday or Wednesday,
but other arrangements can be made if approved by the Area Manager.
