Camp Host Program

Serve Others while Enjoying Our Camp Properties

Many weekends throughout the year, packs and troops enjoy camping at any of the 15 camp properties in Cascade Pacific Council.  To maximize Scouts’ experience, Camp Hosts play a welcoming and service role at many camps. Camp Hosts typically serve two to four weekends annually.  

Camp Host duties include:

  • Check-in with camp ranger, collect weekend keys and notes about any special circumstances
  • Welcome troops and direct them to campsites
  • Collect unit rosters from every visiting unit
  • Remind campers of camp rules as needed to ensure safety for everyone
  • Return keys, unit rosters, and any reports to the camp ranger before departure

Camp Host benefits:

  • Free weekend camping for the host and his/her family, often in cabin housing
  • A wonderful feeling of service as you help Scouts and leaders enjoy the camp!

Requirements to be a Camp Host:

  • Be age 21 or older.
  • Be a registered adult in Boy Scouts of America.  Renew annually to retain host status.
  • Complete Youth Protection training.  Keep current to retain host status.
  • Have current first aid / CPR with AED training.  Renew as required by training agency to retain host status.
  • Annually renew Camp Host status with the council camping department.
