Summer Camp Staff

Working on a summer camp staff is one of the ultimate Scouting experiences.  Open to applicants 16 years of age and over, summer camp staff is where bonds are made that last a lifetime.  Staff members are paid to share their knowledge, skills, and years of Scouting experience with a new generation.  Each year, staff positions are available for older boys and adults in every program and support area.

Applications are due by December 15th.

Counselor in Training Program

The Rotary Scout Reservation Counselor in Training Program is for Scouts who are ready to take the next step in leadership, by learning how to counsel other Scouts in a fun, outdoor environment.  The two and a half week program allows half the day for the Scout’s own advancement and half the day for training, observing, and developing instruction techniques under careful guidance. 

The CITs are exposed to as many program areas as possible, and some support areas as well.  Each CIT is paired with an older staff mentor who serves as a guide and resource throughout the experience.  Upon completion of the program, the CIT may be asked to stay on as an intern for the rest of the summer, based upon the individual’s availability and the staffing needs of the camp.

CITs are encouraged to stay with their troop when the unit is in camp, so that their leadership is available to the unit while at summer camp.

Applications are due by December 15th.
