With our rapidly accelerating trajectory toward a digital and artificial world, Outercamp’s priority is to give people lasting memories and real experiences in nature with their loved ones. We believe ‘time spent inside’ and ‘feeling alone’ are two of the most overlooked health problems our modern civilization faces. We aim to tackle these at an individual level. Helping increase one’s: (1) Meaningful connections to nature, (2) Meaningful connections to people.

Our Values: 

  1. Honest Communication
  2. Personal Responsibility
  3. Teachable, Growing Spirit

Job Description:

We are hiring a reliable and adventurous cleaner on a part-time basis — someone who enjoys working outside with their hands, has experience cleaning homes/Airbnbs, attention to detail, and doesn’t mind laundry. You will be helping us take care of our off-grid glamping resort on 60 acres of beautiful mountain land near the Blue Ridge Parkway (between Marion and Spruce Pine). The 60-acre property has two 30-foot waterfalls, over ½ mile of well-established road, an old cabin, two gushing natural springs, big mountain views, and hiking trails. The Blue Ridge Parkway property is our first acquisition with 2 more extraordinary properties in the pipeline.

You will succeed if you enjoy working outside with your hands and being active, have experience cleaning homes/Airbnbs, attention to detail, and derive satisfaction from preparing spaces for others to enjoy.

You will be RESPONSIBLE for:

  • Cleaning the inside of the yurts/domes, making the beds, and organizing.
  • Keeping supplies stocked with runs to Walmart
  • Tidying up the campsites, trail, and fire pit area.
  • Washing linens — Laundry for linens & towels will be done in your own home.

SCHEDULE — Your work days will vary with guest reservations.

HOURS — To start on our first three sites, you can expect ~5 hours a week plus payment for gas & laundry. You may pick up extra cleans or quarterly deep cleans if you want more hours. As we continue to grow and build more sites throughout 2024, we intend for workload to increase and for a managerial opportunity to open up.
