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.
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 2013 summer season please fill out the 2013 Summer Camp Staff Application as well as the Camp Staff Reference Form. We look forward to seeing you on our staff next summer. Below are just some of the positions being sought, for a full list, please contact Joey Quick.

For 2013 we have made changes to the Field Uniform and Activity Uniform. The changes were made after feedback from camp staff and parents to find a more durable uniform option. In addition, we undertook a review of our safety protocol after last summer’s wildfire season and determined a need for better visibility of our camp staff among the general camp population. We have worked hard to keep the cost change minimal as we transition to our new uniform. .
