Summer camp help wanted!
Do you want your son to have a meaningful job this summer working with and teaching youth? Summer camp is a great way to grow, build lifelong friends, spend the summer in a safe place, learn a good work ethic and earn a little money. We are looking for a few good youth to work at Gorsuch, Denali High Adventure Scout Base, Eagle River Scout Camp, and Camp Carlquist. Join our team today!
Summer Camp Registration
It’s time to get ready for the 2017 National Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reservation! The National Jamboree only comes around every 4 years and a Scout could very well miss the greatest Scouting experience of their life if they miss this chance.

There are also positions for Adult Leaders to travel with the scouts: Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster and Crew Advisers. Adults interested should register with the link below. Adults will be selected after an interview process.
Registration will be first-come, first-serve. Anyone that has already emailed their interest will retain their spot but still need to register below. A $250 deposit is required.
