Summer Camp Staff

Now Hiring: Summer Camp Staff

Build Skills:

Working on camp staff offers you the opportunity to learn new skills outside of a classroom. Improve your public speaking, teach classes, manage projects or become certified in a skill such as lifeguarding or shooting sports

Change Lives:

Working at Summer Camp is one of the best opportunities to change a young person’s life for the better. Over 7,000 Scouts attend Bert Adams and Woodruff Scout Camps each summer. Every one of them has a favorite Staff Member, the one who impacted them the most, and that could be you!

Have Fun!!!!

Being on Camp Staff may be the most fun summer job in the world. You’ll spend six-to-eight weeks living, working and playing with amazing coworkers and build friendships that will last a lifetime.


Camp Staff members must be age 15 or older, but those that are 14 can serve as a Counselor-In-Training (CIT) for a two-week volunteer experience.

Timeline PhotosThis past Saturday, Matt Reitz, a member of our Atlanta Area Council International Committee, was posthumously awarded The BSA Honor Medal with Crossed Palms, for his meritorious action. On a summer evening in 2017, Matthew spotted a raging propane gas fire. He evacuated the home, then battled the roaring fire. His actions saved the lives of three people and prevented a home from destruction by fire and explosion.The Reitz family accepted the recognition from the BSA National Court of Honor, on behalf of Matthew W. Reitz. This award was presented posthumously to the Reitz family, as Matthew unexpectedly lost his life on April 27, 2018.

This award has been presented to fewer than 350 recipients since it was first presented in 1924. ... See MoreSee Less
