Our Ideal Candidate
Perhaps the two most important qualities we look for in our team are a cheerful attitude and the willingness to go the extra mile. Resort and outfitting work means long, hard, and sometimes irregular hours. It is certainly not a paid vacation. The schedules are set for 32 hours per week. Although you may be hired for a specific position, there are times when you may be called upon to fulfill other job duties. In a resort atmosphere we all pitch in wherever necessary to get the job done. With that in mind, we are looking for applicants who are extremely flexible and like a variety of work.
Room and Board
Dormitory style accommodations are available, if desired, here on the grounds at the cost of $130.00 per person per month and includes your utilities. This is for a shared room with 1-5 other people. Showers are down the hall. You are responsible for your own meals cleaning supplies, toilet paper, and kleenex. There are shared cooking facilities for staff use.
There is a public laundromat at the campground next door. We do not receive any TV or radio reception. You may bring your own TV/VCR or CD player if you would like.
