Becoming part of the camp staff is like becoming part of a family. We spend over six weeks working together and sharing experiences. Madison explains it best:

#WhyImHere

Stephen Nuttall:
Giving Back

“It’s an opportunity to make an impact on a Scout’s life just like a staff member did when I was a camper.”

Gray Barnhill:
Friendship

“I’m on staff because of the awesome experiences and the great people I have found. While on staff, I’ve made friends that I know will last my entire life, and I have impacted numerous people. Being on staff is one of the best jobs a person can have! Apply for staff, work one summer and it will change your life!”

Nicholas Anderson:
Nothing Better

“Being on staff is more than a job –  it’s an experience of a lifetime. The impact I see our staff make on young Scouts makes it all worth it. There is no better summer job than working for a BSA summer camp.”
