CAMP STAFF
PEACEFUL VALLEY SCOUT RANCH &
TAHOSA HIGH ADVENTURE BASE

DO YOU HAVE THE "RIGHT STUFF"?

Working for a Denver Area Council camp is not just a job, it's a lifestyle. The Denver Area Council is looking for a few good men and women who have the "Right Stuff" to join our camp staff. Spending your summer at either Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch or Tahosa High Adventure Base will provide you with an opportunity to not only have the adventure of a lifetime, but to also affect the lives of thousands of youth from across the country.

JUST ANOTHER DAY AT WORK

Working on camp staff is a great opportunity to spend your days outdoors while changing lives! Spend your days taking Scouts on hikes, teaching them how to shoot a gun, or relaxing with them in the evenings as you all sit around a campfire telling stories and watching skits. Other benefits of working on staff are: summer housing, three meals a day, time off on the weekends, working on your tan, and making friends from around the country and even world.

WHO AM I?

There are two camp staff position categories:

Camp Staff who are paid staff ages 17 years of age and older

CIT's (Counselor-in-Training) ages 14, 15, or 16 years old (16 year olds - may get paid if they were a CIT as a 14yo or 15yo). CITs will learn from a trained CIT Director, where their time will be spent learning how camp operates, teaching skills, Team Building, and observing/assisting Camp Staff in action, while instructing Scouts.
