Work at Camp
What could be better than a rewarding summer job in the Colorado or Wyoming mountains working with Scouts! Longs Peak Council is accepting applications for Summer Camp Staff. Are you interested in working or volunteering at a camp in the Longs Peak Council? Thousands of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and leaders come and enjoy our 4 camp properties each year.
We are always looking for summer camp staff and year round volunteers.

Volunteers at Camp
We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help keep all of our camps in tip top shape for the Scouts that use and enjoy them. If you are interested in volunteering at any of the Longs Peak Council camps, feel free to call the Greeley Service Center for more information.
Each week during the summer season, a group of Camp Commissioners assist the staff in helping the troops have a successful camp experience.
There is a need for at least two Camp Commissioners in each of the following camps: Camp Jeffrey, and Camp Laramie Peak. We need at least three Camp Commissioners for Camp Nicol. There are also opportunities to serve in the handicraft areas and at the Camp Soaring Eagle Chuckwagon.
Commissioners are provided with housing, meals, and the normal facilities of a staff member. Commissioners arrive early on Sundays, and depart late on Saturdays. They visit the troop sites on a daily basis, and work to resolve any challenges. They can assist with instructing Boy Scout Leader Fast Start Training, and Youth Protection Training. Camp Commissioners must be experienced Scouters with the ability to physically endure a week of walking at the camp.
