Work Exchange Program
Spend a month in the US Virgin Islands on a Working Vacation in Paradise! Maho Bay Camps and Estate Concordia's successful work exchange program begins June 1st and ends November 15th.
Applications for the 2013 Work Exchange Program are being accepted online between January 15th, 2013 and April 15th, 2013.
This is an economical way to experience the Virgin Islands and its gorgeous surroundings. In exchange for free lodging, we ask for a commitment of one month of work in one of our various departments; Maintenance, Housekeeping, Restaurant, General Store, Registration, or other specified area. Your placement will depend upon our needs and your skills.
If you are 18 years or older you are welcome to apply. Sorry, we cannot accommodate families with children under 18. We look for enthusiastic people (or couples) with skills that will help us keep Maho Bay Camps up to par during the off season and help prepare for the high volume winter.
We ask for one hundred twenty hours of work for a thirty day stay (124 hours for 31 days, etc.). This equals 4 hours of work for each night of scheduled lodging at Maho Bay Camps. Work exchange volunteers generally work 6 hours a day for 5 days with 2 days off each week. Duties might include: tent-cottage renovations, painting, cleaning restrooms, pruning, filing, pressure spraying boardwalks, cashier, data entry, cooking, customer service, etc.
Benefits include: free housing, 40% discounts in our general store and restaurant, use of floats and chairs at half price, discounts on most water sports such as diving, windsurfing, snorkel gear and sailing trips, half off Internet use and a dollar off the Maho Bay shuttle fares.
Workers stay in comfortable tent-cottages as shown at left and in detail here. No roommate will be assigned unless you request one or we have a high volume of guests.
Summer in the Caribbean is quite hot and humid (like the stateside south) but our crystal clear waters are the perfect remedy.
If this sounds like a mutually beneficial arrangement, please fill out the application form. We accept 25 applicants each month. Last year we had about seven hundred applications so it can be a bit competitive. We look forward to having you join us!
