Campground hosts now being sought

The Naches Ranger District is currently looking for volunteer hosts for several of its popular and busy campgrounds for the summer season.

“Attitude is perhaps the most important qualification for being a good campground host,” said jacquie Beidl, developed recreation manager.

Other qualifications include an interest in the outdoors and the enjoyment of being around people.

Volunteer campground hosts provide information about the opportunities in the area, monitor compliance with fee schedules, rules and regulations, perform light maintenance duties and report serious issues to Naches Ranger District personnel. Hosts work at least five hours a day, camp on-site at least five days a week, and must work for at least two months between May 15 and Sept. 15.

There is no salary for the work, but the Naches Ranger District provides volunteers with a free host campsite and the necessary tools and supplies to perform their jobs. A few sites have electric and sewer hook-ups available, while other sites require self-containment.

Interested applicants should contact Beidl before March 31 (509-653-1432).
