Join Our Summer Camp Staff

Do you have the "Right Stuff?"

Working for a Denver Area Council camp is not just a job, it's a lifestyle. The Denver Area Council is looking for a few men and women who have the "Right Stuff" to join our camp staffs. Spending your summer at either Peaceful Valley or Camp Tahosa will provide you with an opportunity to not only have the adventure of a lifetime, but to also affect the lives of thousands of youth from across the country.

Just another day at work...

Working on camp staff is a great opportunity to spend your days outdoors and earn a salary at the same time. Spend your days taking Scouts on hikes, teaching them how to shoot a gun or ride a horse, and relaxing with them in the evening as you all sit around a campfire telling stories and watching skits. Other benefits of working on staff are: summer housing, three meals a day, time off on the weekends, working on your tan, and making friends from around the country.

Apply Now!

The Denver Area Council is currently hiring for all positions at Peaceful Valley and Camp Tahosa. If you are interested in a job during the 2015 summer season complete the 2015 Summer Camp Staff Application as well as the Camp Staff Reference Form (new employees only).  Once you have filled out an online application, please contact Alex Hughes to schedule an interview.  You can also contact Alex to find out which positions have yet to be filled.
