Camp Host Program

If you love our camps, and are looking for a way to do more, why not join as a Camp Host? Camp Hosts (previously called Campmasters) serve our camps outside the summer camping season (Sept. - June) one weekend at a time. Camp Hosts help our rangers, provide service to units as commissioners, promote camp activities, giving our guests great customer service, providing program, even offering to help teach something during the weekend all while enjoying quality time camping. Camp Host teams are made up of a small group of Scouters. Some teams have set weekends, others only Camp Host once in a while, or fill in as needed. You can serve as a Camp Host at Firelands, Beaumont, Stigwandish or all three camps. The biggest duties are to be there Friday to help units check in and on Sunday to help units check out. The majority of the weekend is spent with your crew in one of our special Camp Host Cabins.
