Sponsoring Program: Ft. Boggy State Park
We have a need for a motivated volunteer/volunteers to Park Host!
Ft. Boggy State Park is seeking energetic, friendly, outgoing park hosts to assist in all aspects of park operations. Previous park host experience preferred, but not required. Ft. Boggy State Park is open to the visiting public year round. Park hosts should expect to work weekends and holidays. Hosts are a vital part of the park's operation. As park hosts, you will have the opportunity to meet new people and help visitors to have a memorable experience. Park Hosts will assist park staff with the day-to-day operations of Ft. Boggy State Park. Duties include campsite checks, general cleaning of facilities (restrooms, campsites and cabins), grounds maintenance, including but not limited to removing trash, painting, assisting park staff by providing quality customer service, completing visitation surveys and various small projects as needed in the park. There are also opportunities to assist with park interpretive and outreach programs.
In exchange for a minimum of 24 hours per week of work (per campsite/couple) park hosts will be provided with a full hook-up campsite (Water/Sewer/Electric-50/30 amp). Phone and internet hook up available at campsite but would be at the park hosts' expense. Verizon and AT&T cell service work best in the park, other carriers have limited or no signal. Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years old. Criminal Background Checks are required for all persons living/staying in a host site. Park owned vehicles are available to park hosts for the performance of host duties. Please contact host coordinator April Dillon at 903-344-1116, if you would like to join our staff in preserving and conserving the natural and cultural resources of Ft. Boggy State Park while providing quality customer service in a beautiful, friendly, and serene park setting.
