Working for a Greater Colorado Council camp is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle. The Greater Colorado Council is looking for those that want to make the summer full of adventure for the Scouts that come through our gates. Spending your summer at McNeil Scout Ranch at Peaceful Valley will provide you with an opportunity to not only have the adventure of a lifetime, but to also affect the lives of thousands of youth from across the country.
Working on camp staff is a great opportunity to make your summer full of adventure! Spend your days taking Scouts on hikes, teaching them how to shoot a gun, or relaxing with them in the evenings as you all sit around a campfire telling stories and watching skits.
