Who can volunteer to help at Camp Kaibab?
We are looking for adults and youth that are enthusiastic, like to have fun, like to help younger boys learn, or just like to help out. Because Camp Kaibab is a Family Camp experience, we'd like to try and draw volunteers from outside of the families attending Camp Kaibab, with one exception. If you are attending Camp Kaibab with your Cub Scout and you have an older child (male or female, Boy Scout age and up) that is coming along, and they are interested in helping, we encourage them to sign up as Jr Staff and they can help out. Our goal is to have youth teaching youth, with adult supervision (following the Boy Scout model). We especially encourage members of the Order of the Arrow to provide service at this event as well. It also makes a GREAT Diversity ticket for Woodbadgers working their Ticket.
What sort of help is needed?
There are a number of positions at Camp that fall into two main categories. One is program staff, who are responsible for developing and manning the stations. The second is admin staff, which provides support and the framework for the program.
There are multiple stations for youth participants providing various activities. The theme for 2017 is Mine Cub Craft, and those stations should be developed with that theme in mind. Camp Director Matt will be looking for ideas on station content, and can provide ideas as well if you are interested in running a station.
Expectations for staff
Because this is a Council led activity, we will be following the official BSA standards for Family Camping. This requires that everyone (including Jr Staff) attend a training session prior to camp. There is also a Code-of-Conduct which is more or less just common sense rules on being in camp.
