2017 is bringing us exciting opportunities to staff Day Camps. We are currently looking for 14-15 year olds to volunteer as Den Guides, 16-17 year olds to work as paid Camp Staff teaching program areas, and 18+ year olds to work as either paid Camp Staff at Von Oven or paid Specialists who work not only at Von Oven, but also to other camps throughout the Council. Please fill out the Attached Day Camp Application and turn it in to me or to the Naperville or St. Charles Scout Shops and we will contact you for an interview soon. Forward to your friends and invite them to come and have fun with us this summer!
