Camp Host Program

Scouting volunteers are needed to help provide for an excellent weekend experience for Packs & Troops visiting Camp Decorah. The Camp Host is not expected to be knowledgeable in every area of camp. Being a friendly face, a good problem solver, and a passion for Scouting is all that is needed!

Duties would include:

  • Check units in/out and act as the first point of contact for the units on the scheduled weekend
  • Restock paper products and cleaning supplies as needed
  • Promote program options to units (i.e. trails, fishing, etc). The units are responsible for conducting their own programming
  • Report to the Properties Committee any issues or damages that occur during the weekend
  • Help be a good steward of resources by turning utilities on and off for groups visiting Camp Decorah
  • Promote upcoming events at Camp Decorah
  • Accept cash/check/credit card for camp merchandise

Camp Hosts Should:

  • Be a registered Scouter and maintain current Youth Protection Training
  • Attend Camp Host training prior to serving
  • Be a strong communicator and problem solver
  • Be able to commit to being on site at Camp Decorah from Friday later afternoon to Sunday mid-afternoon on the weekends serving

The Camp Host and their family are invited to stay in the Guest Lodge at Camp Decorah during the weekend they are serving as host. The Guest Lodge includes wireless internet, a bathroom and kitchen, and twin beds. Please plan to provide your own bedding, towels, and food.

When not assisting Scouting units who are visiting Camp - you are welcome to participate in all the outdoor recreation that Camp has to offer.
