Campmaster Corps

Purpose

To meet the growing need for the best and most effective short-term camping program possible for patrons of Seven Mountains Scout Camp, we developed the Campmaster Corps to allow units to interface with seasoned adult leaders when arriving and leaving camp. The Campmaster Corps is a strong, well-oriented group of leaders who officially represent the Council while at camp and help the Resident Camp Ranger carry out needed duties.
