Summer Employment & Volunteer Host Opportunities

Each year we seek individuals and volunteers for seasonal summer employment and park hosting opportunities. If you enjoy interacting with people in a beautiful outdoor setting, we may have the opportunity you’ve been looking for! Length of employment varies between three to six months depending on position from end of April to early October.

Park hosting opportunities require a minimum of a two to four week commitment between the end of June and the Labour Day long weekend in September. The Park Hosts support operations by providing visitor information, selling firewood, and providing an onsite presence when paid staff are not in the park.

Apply Now

We accept applications for paid and volunteer opportunities from December to March each year.  We do not supply accommodation at any of our parks or sites.  At some locations we do have partial or full hook-up campsites for volunteer hosts and paid employees.

Only those applicants deemed qualified for available vacancies will be contacted. Thank you in advance for your interest in working for West Kootenay Parks.
