The Glacier’s Edge Council Camps provide a great camping experience for thousands of Scouts each year. This success of our Summer Camps requires that we hire the best individuals that Scouting has to offer. ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?

The Glacier’s Edge Council is looks for the very best of our Scouts and Scouters to serve as members of the Summer Camp Staff annually. The work is hard and demanding; the experience rewarding. Summer Camp jobs offer invaluable skill-building, leadership, training, and enrichment opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else! Regardless of your college major, camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills that will enhance your job marketability. The benefits go far beyond a paycheck, too. Business executives often note that experience as a camp counselor translates into excellent management and personnel skills. College credit can sometimes be obtained from working at camp. Check with your college adviser to see if you qualify.
