When we started fulltiming, we knew that we wanted to look for a “Workamper” arrangement. Workamping is generally a situation where a person or couple gets to assist in campground or RV park duties, hosting, etc., in exchange for a great campsite where they can park their rig. The work can be as challenging as one wants; from 12 hours a week greeting visitors, to being full time and working on a construction or maintenance team. Along with perks like free propane, hookups or laundry room access, sometimes an hourly wage or stipend is also included.
Since our schedule is wide open for the next year, we have begun our Workamper campaign. Here is our resume that we are sending to prospective employers:
Jim Nelson And Rene Agredano

We are young, fit, and able to do the heavy lifting when it comes to:

- teach digital scrapbook and craft classes
- lead physical activities like bicycling, hiking and running / walking excursions

- November to January: Southeast U.S.

Stonebridge RV Park is a beautiful resort located close to the Texas Gulf Coast. I will not discribe our park in detail as you can see several pictures on our web site.
We are looking for someone available for at least the summer 2011.
Most of the work includes mowing, some carpentry, plumbing, electrical and cleaning of buildings. The majority of the work is mowing, edging and weed eatting.
We ask 20 hours per week per couple in exchange for free pad site and electricity. Most of the work will be put in on Wednesday to Friday. Saturday to Tuesdays are off days.
Please advise if this is of interest.
Sound like a great gig! Thanks for posting, our readers may be interested.

Wow…I would hire you in a heartbeat! Can’t wait to hear about the response…
Have you considered somewhere like Yellowstone? I was there in Sept. and there seemed to be a host at every campground- Norris, Tower, Slough Creek, Madison, etc. At least one that I saw had a dish for tv reception.
Clam Beach County Park has a host too during the season 🙂
Looks great! Wow, you two really cover the spectrum. Best of luck!
