Description

Although our state parks follow a trash free policy, often our visitors do not. We work with local community, school groups, scouts, and other volunteers to aid us in keeping our park clean and beautiful for all visitors to enjoy. Throughout the year we organize several beach clean-ups to remove all of the trash and debris that washes ashore on our beach areas. Elk Neck State Park has 15 miles of trails and several day-use areas that occasionally need a helping hand to keep clean. We welcome anyone interested in doing a good deed to help our environmental efforts while enjoying the park. The park will provide free trash bags and gloves to any visitors as they volunteer.

Description

The campground host program invites volunteers to a season of camping in the beautiful setting of Maryland State Parks. A campground host receives free camping in exchange for working to clean and maintain their assigned camping loop and bathhouse on a daily basis. Our hosts are a vital contact point between campground visitors and park staff. These dedicated volunteers are often found walking through their camping loops greeting visitors, answering questions, or reminding campers of park policies, in addition to cleaning and maintaining the camp loop bathhouse. Hosts are required to be on site Friday evening through Sunday afternoon in order to assist with the busy weekend camping and provide 20 hours of volunteer service per week. The hosting season begins in early March and runs through October for many of our camping loops. Each camp host site has electrical hook-ups and is located near the loop's bathhouse, and a water spigot. Hosts are required to stay for a minimum of two months. Priority is given to hosts that are available to stay for the entire season as well as seven days per week. Additional volunteer opportunities are available to hosts who show interest in helping out in other aspects of park operations, such as maintenance or Nature Center programs.
