2020 Camp Barstow Staff

Are you prepared to spend 5 1/2 weeks this summer making friends and having the time of your life working from sun up til past sun down? The staff is what makes a Scout summer camp special.  It’s the secret sauce that can turn an ordinary campfire into a hilarious event that you tell your friends and parents about later.  The staff are the ones that sing that favorite song that you can’t get out of your head for weeks after you return home.  They are also the ones that take time to get to know your name and are there to help you learn a new skill or encourage you to finish the badge.

At Camp Barstow we are currently recruiting our 2020 staff.  We have openings in some areas (especially need a camp medic) and would love to talk to you about your interest in joining our team.  Our first year staff members are typically Counselors in Training (CIT) and we start with Scouts as young as 14 willing to work hard and help make things #BetterAtBarstow.  Staff commitment begins with the opening day of staff week on Sunday June 7 and finishes with the closing day of Cub Resident Camp on Wednesday July 15.
