Summer camp - adult leader positions - HELP NEEDED

Posted by robertgates on Aug 14 2015 - 10:48pm

To all 525 parents / leaders:- Help is needed

The largest two outdoor events each year are the two week long summer camps in June and July.  In order to make sure these events run smoothly the troop needs some key volunteers.
For each camp we need a Camp registrar.  This person DOES NOT need to attend summer camp.  They will review the leaders guide, make sure payments are made on time to camps, look over the camp registrations to make sure they meet camp schedules, send out camp schedules to campers once registered, and assist in making sure from an administrative position the troop is ready for camp. We will need one for Woodruff and one for Skymont.
For each camp we need a Leader in Camp.  This will be the adult leader for the week at camp.  They will attend the week long summer camp.  They will work with the youth leaders prior to camp to make sure we have great week.  At camp they will be the go to at the SM meetings, work with the youth leaders nightly at TLC meetings, and participate in camp activities.  This person will need to be registered with the troop and be current in YPT.
Summer camp dates:
-  Woodruff is June 12 - 18, 2016
-  Skymont is July 10 - 16, 2016
If interested please let me know.  If  would like to discuss in more detail, feel free to contact me.  Summer camp is always great fun.
