Reasons You Should Apply for a Camp Staff Job:



Each year, the Western Colorado Council invites Scouts and Scout leaders to spend the summer as a part of camp staff. The days are long and hard. But the experience and what you see and do can be an exciting time of your life. Working on camp staff is a great opportunity to spend your days outdoors, and earn a salary at the same time.  Spend your days teaching Scouts various scout skills and advancements, and relaxing with them in the evenings as you sit around a campfire telling stories and watching skits. Staff members will have the opportunity to spend the week leading up to camp (June 4-June 11) at a staff training week at SOAR.
