The Prineville Bureau of Land Management is looking for some volunteers that love to camp.

 

Spokeswoman Lisa Clark says the want to staff several of their more popular campgrounds with "camp hosts" to help maintain sites and provide visitors with an "anchor".

 

"You know really we are looking for people with great communication skills. You’re actually out there setting an example as a model camper; you're helping greet and provide information to visitors. So just being comfortable talking with strangers and helping people out is the best asset we can ask for."

 

Clark says they are looking for about a two-month commitment - working about 20 hours a week - in exchange for free camping.

 

They are looking for hosts at the John Day - Lower Deschutes and Crooked Rivers campsites.
