HELP WANTED: SUMMER CAMP COORDINATOR
If you are thrill-seeking, energetic, organized and looking for a new challenge, you’re exactly what Troop #58 is looking for in a summer camp coordinator for 2015.
- Make sure Troop #58 meets all summer camp count & monetary deadlines.
- Collect camp fees from scout families and schedule payment programs.
- Arrange scout transportation to and from camp.
- Sign-up scout for merit badges when open enrollment is available.
- Handle all paperwork involved.
- Make announcements and keep families informed of news and items due.
- Keep scoutmasters informed of meetings, equipment and camp news.
- Spread sheet knowledge is a HUGE plus!
- Organizational skills are an added bonus.
No, you do not need to attend summer camp. Your job is to coordinate everything up to troop departure. After that, the scoutmasters take over.
The busiest time for this position is during merit badge sign-ups in May and June. Starting in January payment schedules are posted. You’ll also need to be available before and after meetings to collect money and answer questions.
If you are interested in helping the troop please email me today! Helping scouts prepare for a successful summer camp is not only rewarding but fun!
An added bonus: Kristi Schertz, last year’s coordinator is willing to help train.

Scouts will have an opportunity to be in a Boy Scout patrol and experience a working Boy Scout troop. Patrols will work together to build large water balloon launching catapults. The idea is to see which patrol can launch balloons the farthest. Catapults are assembled using Boy Scout knots, lashings and wooden salves—all important scouting skills.
In the afternoon, Patrols will work on the Cooking Merit Badge by preparing their own dinner. Saturday evening (weather permitting) we will honor flags by retiring them respectfully in a Flag Retirement Ceremony (scouts need to be in Class A).
Webelos will be given the opportunity to earn the Outdoorsman Badge required for Arrow of Light. Check with a den leader to get it signed off, and make sure everything is done correctly.
*Webelos will need proper leadership; this is not a drop-off. Please bring tents, sleeping bags and all items needed for a camping weekend. Dressing in layers, works best! Plenty of water is a must!
