CAMP COSTS
All Companies need to recoup their costs for providing camp equipment, food and transportation to their workers. Outland has $20.00/day (plus applicable tax) Camp Costs. Some of our competitors charge $25 to $30/day.

 

MANAGEMENT AND EQUIPMENT

We have a high management to planter ratio which equals more attention for planters and higher earnings and a better season.
