We are located on a private ranch that borders the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Wind River Mountain range. The wrangler is welcome to participate in other camp activities, when time allows, such as river rafting day, camp fire, and camping nights. Candidates must enjoy working with kids (ages 8-15).  Must pass a criminal background check.  CPR/First Aid required, but if you are not currently certified, we can help with cost or local class placement once hired.  Housing, all meals, and use of laundry facility are all a part of this job.
