How to get Camp Hosting Jobs (National Parks)
Nike Missile Site in the Everglades. The RV site provided was just a mile away in beautiful woodland... so we could bike to the visitor's center. Wow!...with our science background, this had to be the job. We'd get a uniform and a propane allowance. The job had barely been posted on http://www.volunteer.gov/gov/ We were told to fill out the online application. We'd already sent in the paperwork to get a background check and an authorization for driving a government vehicle. We needed to take a defensive driving course, provide a driving history (listing all of the vehicles we could drive and our hours on each of them) and a DMV 3-year driving record. There's pages of government paperwork. I can send you a copy, if you'd like. The required driving tests were a bit intimidating.
