City seeks camp ground hosts

Published on Thursday, 10 September 2020 at 1:00:00 PM

Camping season is upon us so the City of Albany are seeking volunteer Camp Hosts for the warmer season of October to April across six of their nature based camp grounds.

 

Being a City of Albany Camp Hosts means waking up to the sound of the ocean, being surrounded by nature, meeting new people and helping to keep our environment healthy for others to enjoy

 

Cosy Corner, Torbay Inlet, Normans Beach, East Bay and Betty’s Beach make up the collection of camp grounds that need hosts to advise visitor’s on camp ground use, rules and maintenance.

 

Camp Hosts are stationed at a single camp ground for a period of 6 to 8 weeks at a time with the ability and freedom to visit many other amazing areas around Albany during their stay.

 

Hosts can volunteer at more than one site over the October to April period inclusive of Easter, where vouchers will be provided per week for petrol, food and gas supplies as required.

 

Manager City Reserves Jacqui Freeman said camp hosts are an important part of the City team over the peak tourist season.

 

‘The warmer months are always busy with the arrival of visitors and local residents taking the opportunity to enjoy our stunning coastal areas,” Ms Freeman said.

 

 ‘Camp Hosts support the environmental management and protection of our nature-based camp grounds in the Great Southern and enhanced the visitor experience.”

 

Residents who would like to volunteer as a Camp Host this 20/21 season can access the Camp Ground Host Enquiry Form located on the City of Albany website.
