Camp Staff

Have you ever dreamed of living on a Camp Property for an extended period of time? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of your fellow Scouts? Then we have the perfect job for you! As a member of the Camp Horne Staff, you will be able to teach Younger Scouts the values and skills of Scouting through Merit Badge Instruction, High Adventure Activities, and just general fun around the facilities of Camp Horne. As a Staffer, you will be housed in a cabin setting with access to a hot water latrine. Staffers have the opportunity to build relationships and cultivate friendships that will last a lifetime! Please consider being on our team.
