Workampers are an integral part of Turtle Rock Resort. For those who don’t know, workampers are wonderful folks who stay in their RVs at Turtle Rock Resort and commit to work at the resort for a six and a half month period in exchange for a free full hookup site with TV and wifi.
At Turtle Rock, we try very hard to create a cooperative, respectful, enjoyable work environment with communication being a top priority. Happy workampers who enjoy their job help to create happy guests who will return again and again to stay with us.
Having a good time with our groups of workampers is important. We try to have as much fun as possible and still run our business. We have potlucks for most holidays and at other times during the year, any excuse is good! Workampers are encouraged to organize fun activities which usually take place in our new group room - card games, dances, frequent get togethers around evening campfires, basket making, and free yoga classes thrice weekly. Taking long walks on miles of beaches with your new workamper friends is a common occurrence, as is staying in touch with each other long after the Turtle Rock experience has ended. Many visit each other while traveling. It’s a unique group of good friends.
Jobs are varied. Workampers do everything from office work to outside maintenance and have a chance to interact with our many cottage and RV guests. Workampers need to be physically and mentally agile. Although most outside work is not physically challenging, workampers need to be able to bend, walk, (golf carts are provided for outside work) and have a good range of motion. The office has a computerized reservation system and sharp minds need to be able to remember the variations in reservations from cottages to RV sites with differing sizes, views, and prices. It can be a fast paced and fun environment, especially during the summer season.
We use workampers year round with summer workamper arrivals beginning in April or May and off season beginning in September or October. The hourly work trade for the RV site is 24 hours per week. Extra work - if available - is paid at $9.25 per hour. Extra work is not guaranteed; therefore, workampers do need an outside income.
If workamping at Turtle Rock Resort in sunny Gold Beach, Southern Oregon sounds like an interesting experience for you, please email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be in touch!
