Summer Camp Opportunity: Work as Camp Staff or a CIT

Posted by gghertel on Nov 28 2017 - 11:56am

You too could spend the summer, or just part of it, working at summer camp.

The annual recruitment cycle for staff at Wente Scout Reservation and Camp Royaneh has started. Youth 14-15 (but not yet 16) can apply for the CIT position (counselor in training,) which is a 2-3 week learning opportunity where you work at the camp while you learn about what is involved in staffing a Boy Scout summer camp. For 16 and older Scouts, including young adults, full term summer camp staff opportunities open. Interviews are in January and February for staff, March for CIT. More after the break.

Parents: Friends of Scouting 2017 contribution is over due

Posted by admin on Nov 19 2017 - 9:46am

Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for our members to financially commit to support our local council. Each month the San Francisco Bay Area Council spends about $70 on each scout to support their journey.  The council asks that you help them offset the costs and share the Scouting message by contributing a monthly donation of at least $20 (i.e. $240 for the year 2017) to Friends of Scouting.

ALL: You MUST complete recharter if you are continuing in 2018
