Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) is offering a free one-day session of its popular KOA Work Kamper Boot Kamp training April 21 at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA Campground.

“Our KOA Work Kamper Program provides our KOA owners with a well-trained, experienced work force, so keeping our Work Kampers up to date is a top priority,” Mike Booth, assistant vice president of franchisee services for KOA, stated in a news release.

The KOA Work Kamper Program currently has approximately 1,500 active Work Kamper teams who are matched with KOA owners offering jobs in their parks. KOA Work Kampers who complete a full camping season are eligible to become KOA All Star Work Kampers with increased benefits, including travel vouchers at KOAs when traveling to a campground for work.

“We train KOA Work Kampers to be fully versed in top-level customer service practices and we make them familiar with our quality and facility standards,” said Booth. “Once they become familiar with KOA’s service culture, it’s very easy for Work Kampers to move from one KOA to the next.”

A portion of the April 21 training session will include a “Virtual Job Fair,” where KOA Work Kampers will be able to meet via the Internet with KOA owners throughout North America.

The KOA Work Kamper Boot Kamp session at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA is free for subscribed KOA Work Kampers, and will include a free breakfast and lunch. To register for the April 21 training or to learn more about the KOA Work Kamper program, go to www.workatkoa.com.

Work Kampers who want to stay at the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA are responsible for their own reservations. Just call the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay KOA at (800) 562-7701 after registering for Boot Kamp.

After Boot Kamp, KOA Work Kampers will have the opportunity to meet with KOA Work Kamper support staff individually to help them build their resumes and search for jobs. The group will also be invited to attend one of Branson’s popular shows at a discounted rate.
