Volunteering as a campground host is a great way to experience South Australia's magnificent parks network while providing a valuable volunteer service to visitors, campers, and National Parks and Wildlife Service staff.
From the breath taking vastness of the outback to the sweeping coastline of the Coorong, the rugged grandeur of the Flinders Ranges to the tranquil River Murray - it’s there to explore.
Staying in popular parks during peak periods, campground hosts are a vital part of the camp community. They support park rangers by welcoming campers, maintaining visitor facilities and sharing information.
Campground hosts share a love of the outdoors, a sense of adventure and enjoy meeting and talking with people from all walks of life.
Hosts are required to have a current Working With Children Check (WWCC) through the Department of Human Services (DHS) before commencing hosting duties. Screenings through DHS are free for volunteers. Please visit the DHS website for further information. Hosts are also required to undergo a National Police Check prior to taking up a hosting position.
Hosts are required to have a current first aid certificate before commencing hosting duties.
Hosts will be provided with all the support and any other relevant training required for you to be able to complete your volunteer tasks safely and competently.
