Each summer, the Last Frontier Council employees over 70 youth and adults as members of the Slippery Falls staff. In addition to several weekend meetings in the spring, the staff work for a full week prior to camp opening to make sure campers have a top-quality summer camp experience.
Adult volunteers may serve as camp commissioners for one or more weeks during the summer. Camp commissioners make sure that each unit has a successful camp experience. Regular visits with unit leaders and Scouts make sure that camp is an enjoyable and friendly place. Commissioners help solve problems by working with other staff members and are critical to the success of Slippery Falls. To volunteer as a camp commissioner, please fill out the following form and contact Mike McGlone, the Camp Commissioner Coordinator.
Kerr Scout Ranch at Slippery Falls is always in need of additional talent on staff. To be employed as a camp staff member, candidates must be at least 15 years old and agree to register as a member of the Boy Scouts of America.
Staff interviews occur in January and February.
Please submit staff application forms to the Last Frontier Council office.
For Scouts or Venturers at least 14 years old, Slippery Falls Scout Ranch offers a Camp Staff Development (CSD) program. Youth must have permission from their unit leader and submit an application form with references. Scouts in the CSD program will be at camp for one or two weeks and serve without compensation, similar to an unpaid internship. Scouts will learn about various areas of camp and skills necessary to be employed on staff.
Complete the application and return it to the council.
