DIRECTORS

Each program area is headed by a qualified area director. Some of these positions such as the Aquatics, Nature/Ecology, Shooting Sports, and Climbing Directors must be certified from the BSA’s National Camp School. Other directors are selected for their unique qualifications for that program area. All directors are required to be age 18+, and some must be 21+.

PROGRAM STAFF

These are the most public Camp Fleischmann staff members as you see them every day working on merit badges, first class skills, and other fun activities like sailing and archery. Program staff members must be 15+ years old to serve on staff.

 

SUPPORT STAFF

These are the members of the Camp Fleischmann who work behind the scenes like the kitchen crew preparing 3 wholesome meals a day, the camp ranger who makes sure water arrives at your campsite just like at home, and the trading post staff who supplies your extra nutritional content each day. The minimum age for support staff varies by the area being served.

 

COUNSELORS IN TRAINING

Young Scouts, typically age 15-16 years old, spend time in a variety of program areas in a non-paid capacity. The Program Director tailors the program for the counselor in training to best match his or her skills and the needs of the program at camp. Assignments are usually for 2 weeks but may be extended or reduced upon needs of the camp.
