Camp Hosts

Become a Camp Host

All positions for the 2021 season are full. 

Applications for 2022 will be considered after January 1, 2022.

Thank you for your interest in our volunteer Camp Host program. Our campground is located across the street from beautiful Lake Tahoe and 2 ½ miles from the excitement of the Nevada casinos. We are looking for couples to volunteer 37 hours or individuals to volunteer up to 23 hours per week to perform a variety of important duties, including welcoming arriving guests, performing camp check duties, picking up litter, and restroom cleaning.

Our camp hosts set the tone for camper experiences as the first point of contact for guests. In exchange for their important role, hosts receive a free campsite with water and electricity for the duration of their scheduled service.

Availability & Requirements

The ideal candidate(s) for the position of camp host is someone who is an avid camper and familiar with the dynamics of the campground environment. Experience as a camp host is preferred and returning camp hosts in good standing will be considered prior to new applicants. Preferred candidates will be available for the duration of the camping season or for the core months during peak season. All hosts must complete a background check and submit a driving record annually. A complete camp host handbook (PDF) is available to review to better understand the details of the camp host position.
