Job duties for volunteers include serving as a point-of-contact for campers in the area, daily water testing, monitoring safety, and assist in search-and-rescue efforts.

Volunteers must have their own RV or trailer with a shower and bathroom, must be committed to the three-month requirement and work 32 hours a week. A background and reference check will be done prior to start.
