Come to historic Sumpter Oregon to volunteer at a historic gold dredge. The park is located on the scenic elkhorn byway 30 miles from Baker City.

Primary duties will be: Working in the visitor center, use cash register, handle financial transactions, provide customer service, and give information about the dredge. We provide free gold panning lessons on the weekends so any gold panning experience would be helpful, but not needed. The park is open from 7am to 7pm. Hosts typically work 4 days on and have 3 days off.

There are two hosts sites and we are looking to fill 2 spots for August, 1 spot for September, and 2 spots for October.
