Would you like to serve scouting by spending the weekend at Camp Norse?
The CampMaster corps is a group of trained and registered Scouters who serve at council camps whenever troops, teams, Webelos dens, or posts are using any part of the camp property. CampMasters select their own time and frequency of service, but they usually serve two to four times a year. The group is organized under the leadership of the council camping committee. The entire project and its personnel are responsible to the council camping director. The corps generally meets twice a year to evaluate its program, schedule ahead, and arrange for the training of any new members.
The purpose of the CampMaster Corps is to assist units and youth in having a more purposeful, enjoyable program in short term camping. A CampMaster serves the units in camp by assisting the leader in coordinating his/her program and by sharing with the units his/her particular outdoor skills, through the patrol method, to give the youth a natural experience. Depending on the individual he/she may also supervise the operation of a variety of program resources available.

Duties will include:
Checking units into Campsites/ buildings. Being available to address needs and concerns of units. Overseeing or facilitating work projects. Possibly conducting some programs. (For example, a CampMaster who is expert at orienteering may choose to set up a course which the units in Camp could use if they choose.) Keeping a log of all activities in Camp. Checking units out of campsites/buildings.
CampMasters will stay in the heated Magee Lodge/CampMaster Cabin for the weekend. All BSA and Council regulations regarding camping and use of facilities will be followed. You are responsible for your own meals...
