*Super Troop

Super Troop is a temporary troop made up of Scouts from troops around the council.

Camp Staff

Camp staff is an experience that is truly unforgettable. It is a chance to spend your whole summer working at a beautiful camp while teaching kids and having fun. Every day is fully rewarding to you as a staff member and to the campers in whose lives you have made a difference. Camp work is often demanding as the schedule is packed full for the campers; but the opportunities, rewards and experiences are endless. Serving on camp staff is a great way to spend a summer. Staff week is May 31 - June 6, 2020.

A staff of outstanding Scouts and Scouters has been assembled to meet the needs of the Scouts and leaders. Staff is recruited from the area colleges (e.g., Texas A&M University, University of Texas, Sam Houston State University, Texas State), Order of the Arrow members, and National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) staff and participants. The camp staff strives to assist in making the summer camping experience a highlight of the year. Scouts looking to be considered to be a part of the staff must fill out an application.
