River Country Campground
River Country Campground employs between 15 and 20 part time staff (generally aged 16-25)
during the summer each year. Our beginning wage is at the minimum set by the State of Michigan,
which is currently $8.50/hr.
Many of our employees return to work for us each year. We regularly employ (for the summer)
drivers, office personnel, and maintenance crew. After March 1st we will accept applications for the
summer of 2016. We are hiring in 2016 for 3 areas:
1. We will be hiring several people to work hauling canoes, doing site maintenance, and
performing other duties related to the upkeep of a campground and its facilities. The work is
physical and you will get dirty & sweaty. You must be able to work weekends. Hours vary each
week, but you would be scheduled for approx 5-20 hours per week. The benefits (other than the
wage) are being able to be outside, being part of an exciting team of people, and the satisfaction of
doing a job well... and a little free tubing.
2. We will also be interviewing personnel for the store this year. That position is mostly inside, but
you still get the other benefits & it's a great atmosphere! People in this position need to be able to
do the following proficiently: multi-task, answer the phone, use the computer, spell, do math, use
other office machines (cash register, fax, credit card processer, copier...etc), talk to people without
fear, work alone (sometimes), work as a team (always!). Training is provided for the office
machines. Other duties include cleaning, stocking, weeding, other general maintenance, and
customer service. You must be able to work weekends. Hours vary each week, but you would
mostly likely be scheduled for 10-20 hours per week.
3. We are looking for a summer maintenance position that involves cleaning the shower building
several times each week. This would involve 3-4 hours on Tuesdays and about an hour or two
each on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.
If you are interested in any of the jobs listed above, please e-mail (see below) and request a current
application. Get it back to us as soon as possible. We will schedule interviews for the middle of
April (maybe sooner for store, later for outside). If you would like us to mail you a copy of the
application, please call 734-3808 and leave a message with your name and address.
