Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

Bolded text is my addition. THERE ARE NO $$ INVOLVED WITH THIS POSITION. If you need income and are a couple, see if two are required to work for the site or if only one is needed. You are trading your time for a site worth $250 to $265 per week. Monthly rates not available on line

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

California a good place to stay away from. I have noticed several $250 a week places. They are nice... not necessary. And these rv parks don't want ones over 10 yrs old, and high dollar is preferred. That is my experience.

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

I thought there might be some interest. Pics are generally requested to make sure the host's RV is in good shape and presentable. Would you rather they make blanket statements like nothing over XX years and no home conversions? Some of the campgrounds are learning that a home conversion or older RV can look as good or better than some of the newer S&S RVs. Since it has caused such concern and ridicule, I won't post any more of the Work Kamper wanted posts.

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

Escapees is a good place to look for that type of work, and there are many places that take older rv's or trailers. some of the jobs are great, like a couple of them i have known about in Oregon.. for example my sister and her husband go to one state park every year, piddle around a bit every day and go have coffee in town, go to the beach, etc. they work maybe 2 hrs a day and have free hook ups, plus other freebees. Another person i grew up with goes to a park further north on the coast and mows grass as needed and has stayed the whole season for a couple of years.

Networking with other people who do this is a good way to find out what are the best places to go to, as some of them want people to work all day just for parking.

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

Sorry timmylc but I perceived that you were complaining about it. Given that you are listed as a moderator combined with all the flack I get from EVERYTHING that I post, I figured it was not welcome on this forum. No problem. Since I start a new job on Saturday, I won't be on the computer as much for a while. I have seen several here post about considering workkamping.

Personally I think workkamping is a poor choice. Too many hours traded for site. Most folks figure it based on a single night site rental but that's wrong. You need to figure the site value based on the cheapest rate, which is generally monthly and far less than the nightly rate. And they will base your taxes on the full price. You will owe income taxes on bartering a site for work... as room & board. The IRS will want the taxes on that.

Example on the math...
our current site is $400/mo works out to $400/30 = $13.33 per night
Regular site rent for one night $35
($35 X .40 = $14.... $35 X .35 = $12.25... also how we do a rough estimate for monthly site rent when none are posted online. Monthly sites tend to run under 40% and above 34% of the single night price.)

New job will pay me $10.30/hr. Even though only part-time (20 hrs per week),I am much farther ahead than workkamping. Even at the base wage in NM of $7.50/hr I would be ahead. Now, if you have no transportation and are "stuck" at the campground, that is the only way I see a benefit. At which point I see buying a cheap chinese touring scooter (cheap on gas but requires a motorcycle license/insurance) a huge plus...

http://www.scooterdepot.us/moped-sco...sc&order=price

(I want this one but will most likely get a cheaper one)

BTW, I figure I will work here a year or so, then transfer to another store within the company but in another state. There are Home Depots all over.My paycheck will be direct deposited to my Wal-mart Visa Moneycard. No local banks to hassle with. No waiting for my "last" paycheck.


BTW, why is the website looking "odd"?

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

Lorna
We were talking about this last night,the work camping just doesn't make since to us either...maybe we value our time more than working when we want to relax and enjoy a spot.
and on that note($$)we have been rather shocked by campground prices overall
We are so used to camping in Nat.forests

I was wondering about that too... Thought it was just me. I switched the board format/skin and it is working, but I'm not used to the layout so it is annoying.

Re: Summer Camp Hosts wanted California North Coast

How do you change the skin? I'm looking at all text. Looks like forums used to look like back in the "olden times" It's very difficult to navigate.

Okay got it sorta fixed. I prefer the other setting but this one is working (subsilver 2).
