A KOA Work Kamper is a seasonal employee hired at a KOA campground for a negotiated time period. Many Work Kampers are retired couples looking to supplement their income while traveling throughout North America in their RV. However, we do have families that are home schooling their children.
How long will one commitment last?
A Work Kamper team will generally get hired for a season. Seasons will typically range from three (3) to six (6) months, up to a year. This is dependent on the location of the KOA Campground and the specific position one is hired for.
Is housing provided?
The majority of KOA Campgrounds will require you to provide your own housing. This can be an RV or off-site stationary house, if you live in the area.
How much will I get paid?
Much of the KOA Campground system is independently owned and operated. Each campground is responsible for creating their own compensation packages and perks for employees. One will find a variety of offerings throughout the KOA System.
What kinds of jobs are available?
As with compensation, a variety of jobs are available at any given campground. Each campground will dictate how many employees they need and what positions they will hire for. The variety will range anywhere from manager to front desk and outside maintenance.
Do they hire single Work Kampers?
Yes. Some campgrounds do prefer to hire couples, but many do still hire single Work Kampers. Be sure to indicate on your resume that you are a single Work Kamper. They will, generally, welcome your pets as well.
