Read Camp Staff 2019

We are starting the process of filling the 2019 Staff.  We have many opportunities that include program positions (Scoutcraft, Shooting Sports, Ecology, Handicraft, Waterfront), special skill positions (Equestrian, Skilled Trades), high adventure positions (Trek Guide, COPE, Climbing, Mt. Biking) and support positions (Health Officers, Dining Hall, Trading Post, Commissioner Service).

Staff Application

There are three different ways to be a part of our team:

• Paid Staff:  To join the paid staff you should be at least 16-years old.  Well-qualified 15-year old’s may also be considered, especially if they have completed our CIT program.  Most staff spend just over 7 weeks at Camp Read, for 2019 this will be beginning June 29th and finishing by August 24th.  Exceptions may be made for school related conflicts (i.e. graduations, college etc.).  Some director-level positions require an additional partial week of training, as well as some that require completion of a National Camp School Program, earlier in June.

• Counselor in Training:  CITs are 14 and 15 year old’s.  They spend a minimum of 2 weeks at Camp Buckskin.  CITs spend their weeks training and working alongside the rest of the staff.  CITs are not paid for their time at camp, however they do receive free room and board in addition to great training. CIT Application

• Volunteer:  There are both short and long-term volunteer opportunities for adults and Scouts who are at least 16 years old. Those interested will need to complete the same application and interview process as paid staff.


Above is the current Staff Application.  Please take a moment to fill it out and return it to us.  It may seem early, but it’s vital to get an early jump on building next summer’s winning team. Some positions fill faster than others, so you may want to get your application in right away.  You will be contacted to schedule an interview once your application is received.   Currently, our interview dates are scheduled for:  December 27th, February 23rd, and March 23rd.

Staff positions will begin filling in early January, for a goal of completion by March.

**If you have already sent in your application, please feel free to share this website and application with those that you feel would benefit from the amazing experience they will have, as well as be an asset to our amazing team of returning staff!
