Do you want to work as Summer Camp Staff at Lost Valley this summer?

Posted by jrobinson on Dec 3 2014 - 7:14pm

Applications are being accepted for Summer Camp Staff-

Do you know anyone who is passionate about teaching and inspiring youth? Who loves to make new friends and get away from it all for weeks at a time? If you can think of that person who doesn’t mind getting a tan that washes off in the shower every night, then let them know about the amazing opportunity of being on SSRLV summer staff. I am accepting applications and have started interviews to fill the 70+ positions that make summer camp happen! I myself worked on summer camp staff for 15 years and can honestly say it improved my work ethic and leadership skills. Not to mention that it taught me how to budget the money I made so I didn’t have to work during the school year and could focus on my studies. Here is a link to our application for camp staff. Spread the word today! http://media.wix.com/ugd/c3179a_1d48e98dc5ba417fa489741e5af9361d.pdf

It takes a whole unit to develop a leader

Below is an article from the Orange County Council Leadership Development Chair, Rich Galpin. The article does a great job of explaining the importance of developing youth and adult leaders…not just sending them to a training course and believing they are “trained”. The calendar page of the troop website has current information and registration details about all youth and adult leadership development courses offered in the Orange County Council. A few that may catch your attention…
