Camp Staff Employment

Sam Houston Area Council has a great challenge each year to provide Scouts and Scouters who attend our camps with a great camping experience. The Sam Houston Area Council is looking for a few dedicated individuals to serve Scouting by being a staff member at one of the council's camps. The requirements are stiff; the jobs are demanding; the experience is exhilarating.

Staff members must:

  • Be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America.
  • Be at least 16 years of age during camp (ages 14-15 can serve as a counselor-in-training).
  • Exemplify the Scout Oath and Law.
  • Complete an application

El Rancho Cima Summer Camp Staff Application

Summer camp staff development begins on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, and concludes on Saturday, June 17, 2017. The additional training time will allow improving and strengthening the staff skills, developing merit badge curriculum and program, as well as preparing for camp. Week one of camp begins on Sunday, June 18, 2017 (see the complete summer camp schedule).

The council is accepting 2017 summer camp staff applications for El Rancho Cima Walter Horseshoe Bend and Rough Riders. Submitting an application is not a guarantee of a position, but only the first step in being considered.
