Camp Beach Bags

A great summer job is in the bag!

Doing good, and having a great time doing it.

We’re a dynamic company with rock solid team dedicated to helping families and their friends simply, safely, and sustainably enjoy summer vacations in the world’s most breathtaking houseboating destination, Lake Powell.

We work hard and play hard while using our innovative, no-trace, Beach Bags Systems to anchor private and rental houseboats along the emerald waters of Powell’s sandstone shorelines.

The scenery is breathtaking. The on-lake work is physical, fun, and financially rewarding. And the opportunity to explore, adventure and play on the water, in the canyons, and throughout the spectacular Colorado Plateau is endless.

A little hard work, a lot of reward

There is no denying that our work is physically demanding. Anchoring houseboats involves some heavy lifting in the heat as you and your team members put anchors in place, fill ‘em up, drain ‘em, and retrieve ‘em. Setting or striking anchoring sites takes about 30 minutes and definitely gets your heart pumping. Afterwards, it's a quick jump in the lake to cool off, grab a snack, and joke with your teammates as you cruise off in a workboat to your next anchoring adventure. It's an anchor, rinse and repeat you'll do 5-8 times per workday.

Anchoring Crew members typically work 4 days per week – receiving 3 days off. Over the course of the summer, you’ll not only anchor hundreds of houseboats, you’ll gain general boating knowledge, navigation skills and safety instruction. We even teach our team member how to operate and drive boats.

Days to play

We believe your summer job should be adventurous, exciting, and fun. Anchoring Crew members should plan to have 3 scheduled days off per week. How else are you going to enjoy all the fun that comes along with working at Lake Powell? And don't worry about planning all your adventures, we’ll take care of some of that too. You can expect group surfing trips, lake explorations, and hikes in some of the area’s most beautiful canyons. If you love the outdoors, there is no better place to be! Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park are a few hours away and great mountain biking and a beautiful golf course are available just minutes away.

Tips… The extras are oh, so good

Our customers love, love, love houseboating on Lake Powell. It’s their favorite place to be. Lake-life attitudes abound and tips for a job well done freely flow to our hard working and attentive Anchoring Crew members. It’s not uncommon for them to each make thousands in tips per season.

work hard – play hard - bank the bucks!
