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.

  • 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.
