Job Details

Work Description: We are two campgrounds in this area. Positions available are housekeeping/janitorial and grounds/maintenance. Duties will be cleaning cabins and bathhouses as well as mowing, grounds keeping and other duties. It has been our experience that it is better to wait until a student arrives and determine at that time which position best suits the student. Job interest, previous work experiences and language skills are indicators as to where the Student will be most happy and productive. Quite often we like to assign a Student to two different areas so there is variety to their work experience. If, however, a Student indicates a preference we will certainly try and accommodate his or her desire.

Salary and Bonuses: $9.00 per hour

Work Hours: You will work approximately 5 days per week.
