Wouldn't it be great if all our jobs could move outdoors for the summer? I realize for those of you who have a hybrid job and can work from anywhere you may not be feeling the strain that many of us have to get fresh air and sunshine during the summer while we work a 40-hour week..

If you are looking for something to do outdoors this summer and you would like to make money while you do it, the NYS DEC wants you. This is the time of year they hire people who are ready to be part of the park staff through the Fall.

If you are thinking this might be the chance to work outside and deal with people then you might want to talk to your local  NYS DEC office. There are so many jobs it can be a bit overwhelming. The NYS DEC needs caretakers - supervisors, they also are seeking booth workers, boat rental staff, and maintenance staff.

Take a Look at Some of New York's Camp-Resorts

Hudson Valley New York Camping Resorts

The Hudson Valley is a camping destination for so many people including those of us who live locally. It is a great way to have a summer vacation every weekend close to home. Many places offer a seasonal rate for you to save money on your stay. You pull the trailer in for the summer and park it for the season which is usually May to October. The resorts we found offer family fun amenities and a season full of exciting activities.
