    Summer Camp Staff

    I'm fairly well set gear wise but I'll definitely be heading to REI to get a backup harness–worked a climbing wall last summer and had my harness stolen, a week of using the one-size-fits-all harnesses convinced me to always have a backup! I'll try a pair of gloves, never been a fan of them while rappelling before but I'm guessing they'll be worth it for the amount I'll be doing! Definitely planning on investing in a good pair of binoculars too. One of the guys I climb with always brings his–I'm usually up in the rockies in Colorado, and the view from up there is pretty incredible! Though probably not quite as good as being able to see France. Thanks for the tips!

    Summer Camp Staff

    Yep, I’ll be at oljato. Program area, I’m climbing staff. And yeah, pretty much no summer camps pay well, but it’s a lot more fun and a lot more fulfilling than lots of other summer jobs! I’ve already gotten my YPT, guide to safe scouting, weather hazards and such training done so I’m familiar with it at least. Definitely looking forward to the summer!

    Summer Camp Staff

    I will also be a 1st year staff at a camp on huntington lake, though it'll be the one across the lake for me (and no cabins for us). Was wondering if there is any scout-camp specific advice I could get from any of you. I have worked a couple of other summer camps but, being female, did not grow up in scouting (hated girl scouts and unfortunately didn't learn about venturing until my senior year of high school). I have lots of family who did but they are all much older generation. I am trying to learn as much about the bsa as I can/should know for the summer and would welcome any advice. I will be on climbing staff btw.
