2022 Camp Staff Information

Camp Daniel Boone seeks approximately 100 staff members each summer. Staffers come from numerous states and Scout Councils. Roughly 65-70% of our staff return each summer. We pay a competitive salary and offer a great summer time work experience. 

Competition for employment is keen; the jobs demanding; the experience exhilarating.

Applicants are considered for positions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (if over 18), marital status, veteran status, or the presence of health problems or handicap that is unrelated to your ability to perform the job requested.
