The Volunteer Park Host Program is a hospitality service to park visitors. By greeting park visitors and providing them with information about things to do in the park and surrounding area, the Volunteer Park Host offers an important service.  Hosts do not perform duties that are normally done by POs, but a friendly smile and courteous advice will go a long way in keeping infractions to a minimum and influencing park visitors to keep the parks clean. Ideally, hosts are to be “on duty” three to five days per week, four hours per day, preferably in the afternoons and/or evenings, and on weekends. A properly designated campsite will be provided at no cost during the period of the hosting agreement.  Specific duties are outlined in the Volunteer Host Handbook and may vary from park to park.

The volunteer must meet the requirements of the Criminal Records Review Program.(download Consent to CRC for Volunteers Form on-line and K2 Admin Office will provide the CRRP  I.D. #.  No fee is required).
