Being on Staff

Every year, the seven camps and programs which make up the Goshen Scout Reservation employ close to 250 highly motivated individuals to participate in the experience of a lifetime.

Staff will receive one day off per week and will generally receive a night off as well. Room and board is provided. At the resident camps (and for the High Adventure staff when at base camp), staff have a canvas wall tent on a wooden platform to stay in and store personal equipment.

For all positions, the primary focus is delivering program. Other responsibilities for all positions include physical setup, maintenance, and tear down of the camp in addition to other general duties based on the operations of camp. Prior experience with Scouting not required.
