Believe us, there is no job better than working at camp! You'll help girls unleash their inner G.I.R.L. as they experience all kinds of outdoor adventures, build friendships, step outside their comfort zone, and find new ways to lead.
No matter where you’re from or what your ability level, if you love kids and enjoy the outdoors, there are any number of summer camp positions for which you may be qualified.
What do we look for in our staff? Girl Scouts of Gateway Council looks for staff who are friendly and concerned, reliable and responsible, creative and patient, supportive and respectful, dedicated and committed, understanding and caring, fun and upbeat, and generous. GSGC’s staff must have initiative and enthusiasm, energy and a positive attitude, maturity, sensitivity, and above all put safety first.
Gateway Council offers a variety of camps from traditional resident camp, plus day, sampler and STEM camps. Camp staff will participate in a week (June 4-8) of intensive training, plus eight weeks of outdoor programming at North Fork and Camp Kateri.
Many of our camp staff members did not grow up as a Girl Scout. As a part of your employment, you will be registered as a Girl Scout member.
