Summer Camp Staff Resource

Summer Camp staff make a difference!   You can be a role model to so many scouts this coming summer. This summer you can have a chance to teach kids things they will never learn at home. Show off your leadership skills and learn from each other. You will learn things about yourself and gain confidence in your normal everyday routine. So come be a part of a community bigger than your self.  Submit an application today.

2020 - Summer Camp Dates:  Will include some training weekends:

June 11-July 18, 2020 

Each staff member is provided with his/her room and board.  All meals and living quarters are part of each staff member’s compensation.  Living quarters are staff cabins that sleep 4 to a cabin and are small versions of a log cabin.  Female staff members are given living quarters in one of the family cabins across the lake from the main side of camp.  There is also a central Staff Lodge that provides a few extras for every staff member to enjoy.  

Lesson plans will be provided as well as all equipment needed to teach the merit badge or program. Staff will provide the uniform they wear.  Discounts are given to all summer camp staff through our Gastonia Scout Shop.  Some staff positions will require a National accrediation certificate; we will send you to camp school at no cost.

Unlike other camps, your role as a staff member is not as a “camp counselor”.  You will not be living and spending every moment with the Scouts in attendance.  Instead, you will be an instructor teaching classes that each Scout will participate in.  The Scouts have adults who come to camp with them and serve as their supervision.  As an instructor you will teach Scouts your knowledge and expertise in the program area you work in.
