Now Hiring Scouts: Cub Scout Summer Camp Staff Roles Available

Hello Scouts and Scouters!

Scouts, are you looking for a fun summer job where you can gain experience as a leader and be a role model to young Scouts? Parents, are you looking for some peace and quiet in your house for this summer?  The Cub Scout Camp Directors are currently seeking additional Scouts to staff at the Cub Scout Summer Day Camp at the Heard Scout Pueblo, as well as Camp R-C Cub Scout Family Residential Camp in Payson!

For Scouts 16 and above, these are paid positions, including room and board.  For Scouts aged 14-15, Counselor in Training staff positions do not receive financial compensation but do receive room and board.  Camp R-C also has a Den Chief/Junior Staff program where 12 to 13-year-old Scouts and a parent can volunteer for a session and see what it is like to work at summer camp while gaining experience for future summers!

There is a preference for Staff that is available for the entire program, although if a staff member must leave early to join their Troop for camp or another opportunity, the Camp Directors may be able to work that into the staff schedule.

·         Den Chiefs/Junior Staff (ages 11-13 with a parent) roles are available for every session. 

Camp R-C is unique in that it has a Den Chief/Junior Staff program through which younger Scouts ages 11-13 and a parent can attend a session at R-C and assist in program area of their choice.  It is a great opportunity for a young scout to essentially intern for a session and find out if working at summer camp is a passion that they can pursue over future summers! It is also a great opportunity for young Scouts to bridge over from a young Scout to a role model and leader at camp.  R-C can use Den Chiefs’ support at any of its sessions, so please feel welcome to see what fits on your schedule!
