Would you like to spend a summer working long hours for low wages and having the time of your life?  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 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 2019 staff.  Luckily we are bringing back the majority of last year’s staff for an encore performance.  However, we always have turnover with folks graduating or having other opportunities to explore.
