We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help keep all of our camps in tip top shape for the Scouts that use and enjoy them. If you are interested in volunteering at any of the Longs Peak Council camps, feel free to call the Greeley Service Center for more information.
Museum Hosts Needed
A great opportunity to spend a week or more on 3200 acres of prime mountain property awaits those who would like to spend that time serving as a museum host. The Longs Peak Council Scouting Museum, also known as the Daniel Armstrong Heritage Center, is located at the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The museum needs to be manned every week for the six weeks of camp. The museum host will interact with the many scouts and scouters hungry for knowledge about BDSR and it’s historical sites, the history of the Longs Peak Council and of scouting in general. Many who visit are from out of state or are foreign guests.
As a museum host you will serve for a week or more as unpaid staff. There are a few perks though. There is in house living quarters that includes a small fridge, a microwave, coffee maker and a comfortable single bed. As a host, all of your meals at the dining hall are included. The hours of operation are such that you will be able to enjoy hiking and exploring and all of the beauty and the nature that BDSR has to offer. Or you may just want to linger on the porch and enjoy the view of Corral Rock. At a certain time of the evening you will discover why that ‘rock’ is named so. The roll of ‘museum host’ is a very fulfilling experience. And fear not, there is a comprehensive guide book as well as a pre-camp meeting to help to bring you up to speed.
The weeks open and awaiting your service are as follows:
- Week 1 June 10—15
- Week 2 June 17—22
- Week 3 June 24—29
- Week 4 July 8—13
- Week 5 July 15—20
- Week 6 July 22—27
