Summit Service Update

As you may have heard, this Spring, the council has the opportunity to have our Spring Camporee at The Summit Bechtel Reserve. The council has asked us to help make sure the weekend is running smoothly for the 500-1,000 scouts we are expecting. This includes helping in the following areas:

  • Troop Guides: these people will take a troop to their campsite and help them settle in.
  • Parking Attendant: as the name implies, you will help people park their car as no cars are allowed in their campsite.
  • Saturday AM and PM roving staff. These people will help run activities and programs on Saturday. In order to make sure you are able to enjoy the weekend and everything The Summit has to offer, we have split this activity into two groups so you still will have have half a day to roam around the summit (though you are allowed to sign up for both).

All those that volunteer will get a free t shirt and patch for your service.

If you want to sign up to help us, please sign up on our form at

If you have any questions, please email

Hope to see you there!
