Work Camp Musicians


(a future work camper asks...)

Do any work camps ever look for musicians? My husband and I would love to start work camping in June of 2012. He plays music. I can do just about anything.


Coleen, the working while RVing editor replies:

Campgrounds and RV parks do have musicians and entertainers come in to play for their camping and RVing customers. This is especially true in the Winter Texan RV parks and resorts, as well as snowbird parks throughout the south. Though, you will find parks with activities programs that include musical entertainment all over the country.

Some of the musicians work in exchange for an RV site, utilities, and use of resort amenities. At some parks, they pass a hat or otherwise take donations during or after the performance. Some charge a fee at the door the night of the show. And, still others are paid a salary per gig.

To get some more info on this, read through the worker profiles on this website.

~ Worker Profiles

We saw a lot of good entertainers this winter in South Texas. Cowboy, country, bluegrass, and gospel music were popular. So were shows that had comedy mixed in with the music. Other types of music and other entertainment also had their place.

To find the opportunities you are looking for, you'll need to market yourself and your husband. You might do that through a website. Or, you may have CD's made and send them out to campgrounds where you would like to stay. Another way to become known is to participate in jam sessions and fundraising music festivals. It will also help if you have reviews from other venues where your husband has performed, so that you can give the camp owner an idea of how others viewed the performance.

Here's wishing you the best as you prepare for this new working while RVing adventure.

An excellent spot for c/w musicians - they have jamborees on the weekends. They also hire workkampers.
