Cotter looks for campground hosts

By Barcham - 25 September 2013 3

Do you like being outdoors and hosting things?

IF so then Brett McNamara thinks you should probably become a campground host at the Cotter campground or at Woods Reserve, where you may use those “likes” of yours to help others.

“This is a great opportunity for someone who loves camping and dealing with people to stay for short periods at these locations, experiencing all the adventure the precincts offer, while providing outstanding customer service to campers,” Mr McNamara said.

“The campground host program was trialled successfully last year at the Cotter campground so we are excited to be able to offer this opportunity again and also now extend it to cover Woods Reserve.

“Hosts will have the full use of the powered Cotter campground hut during their stay and an onsite powered caravan at Woods Reserve. Duties for the hosts will include assisting campers with paying fees and finding sites, providing information on local attractions and promoting walks and activities.

“The campground host will also assist rangers with basic campground maintenance, reporting of issues and helping gather information on park use, statistics around flora and fauna sightings and camping numbers.”

Mr McNamara said that successful applicants will receive full training before being placed on a register to be contracted over the Christmas, Easter and school holiday periods.

Individuals interested in applying for a campground host position can download the selection criteria and duty statement via www.tams.act.gov.au

nice idea, but would be useful if TAMS would let potential applicants know whether or not this position attracts a salary. Absolutely nothing on the TAMS site, so my guess is not.

It is a volunteer program. This is mentioned a few times on the website but we will add a further reference.

Really?! I don’t think anyone even stepped outside that little cabin the whole time we were there last year.
