Kampgrounds of America (KOA) is offering a free one-day session of its KOA Work Kamper Boot Camp training March 28 at the Branson, Mo., 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,” said Mike Booth, assistant vice president of franchisee services for Billings, Mont-based KOA.
The KOA Work Kamper Program currently has approximately 1,500 active two-person Work Kamper teams who are matched with KOA owners offering jobs on 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 for KOA stays 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 proprietary KOA KampSight campground operating system,” said Booth. “Once they know how to operate KampSight and 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 March 28 Branson 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 Camp session at the Branson KOA is free for subscribed KOA Work Kampers, and will include a free breakfast and lunch.
