Join us at camp this year for a great employment opportunity! Fill one of our many positions from Waterfront, Handicraft, Rock Climbing, White Water Rafting, to Back Country Camping and many more.    

Parents send their children to camp because they perceive benefit from the experience. In some cases, the parents are former scouts themselves and have experienced the value of camp firsthand. Others have been persuaded to try a camp experience as they seek positive developmental activities for their scout and troops. Regardless of the reasoning behind their decision, all parents and leaders share the hope their scouts will have fun, learn new skills, make new friends, and safely return home at the end of the camp experience. These hopes are shared by camp staff, directors, and councils everywhere. It’s no secret that summer camp would not function without the dedicated staff. We are very fortunate to have you all.
