In exchange for living on site and amenities, Camp Hosts will perform a variety of duties to help around the facility depending on skill sets and abilities. Duties may include getting facility ready for season in late spring (painting, cleaning, yardwork, maintenance), help during summer camp season (janitorial/housekeeping, kitchen help, maintenance, assisting groups, running errands), and helping after summer season in preparation for winter (clean and close cabins, store materials, winterize).  Hours will vary, but estimated at 20 hours per week.
