Can you handle the elements of Lake Superior?

Starting in June, the lighthouse will open for people interested in becoming a Host Keeper for a week long stay at Porphyry Island.

Requirements of a Host Keeper is that you volunteer five-hours daily, meet & greet visitors, assist with grounds keeping, help in the preparation of meals and after dinner enjoy the many amenities. More information will be provided in late April when we will announce a call for applicants. Couples and young families and singles work well with our program. We will be looking to fill several positions in the summer starting in June and finishing in September. There is a cost associated with the registration.
