Summer Camp Staff Opportunities

The council is accepting staff applications to work at Little Sioux Scout Ranch and Camp Cedars! Camp staff provides opportunities to learn leadership skills, explore outdoor activities, meet new friends, and get paid for the summer! Over 150 staff members are hired each summer to teach Scouts all types of outdoor skills. Throughout it all ... we have FUN! Get paid for working at summer camp! Salaries depend on certifications, relevant experience, and job responsibility. Meals and housing are also included. Prospective staff members must be at least 15-years-old prior to the beginning of camp to serve as paid staff members, or 14 year-old to volunteer in the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program. Camp Staff Training starts at the beginning of June and the season continues through the end of July.  Specific dates of employment are subject to change by the camp management.
