Camp William B. Snyder Campmaster

Who is a Campmaster?

A Campmaster is an adult Scouter who uses his/her experience, training, and knowledge of the Scouting program to help both Scouts and their adult leaders develop skills in the outdoors. Has your Scout moved on, but you still want to be involved?

To be a Campmaster you must:

  1. Be at least 21 years old. (A Campmaster assistant must be at least 18 years old.)
  2. Be knowledgeable in and able to teach basic and advanced Scouting skills
  3. Be supportive of National and Council policies and regulations
  4. Be familiar with Camp William B. Snyder
  5. Have completed the Campmasters’ Training Program
  6. Be willing to be “first in – last out” for at least two weekends a year at Camp William B. Snyder in Haymarket, VA

What do Campmasters do?

A Campmaster agrees to be responsible for the checking in and checking out of units for the weekends they agree to be Campmaster.  If the unit(s) that are staying at the Camp need help working with the boys in a skill in which you are knowledgeable, then you are encouraged to assist them.  Otherwise, your job is to answer questions or help make their stay enjoyable at Camp William B. Snyder.  Campmasters also need to recruit an assistant to help with the check-in and check-out of the troop(s).  Campmasters don’t have to camp out with the troops.

What do I need to do to become a Campmasters?

It’s really simple.  If you are a registered Scouter, 21 years or older, and you know what the Scouting program is all about, then start the process by filling out the application on the back and send it to Camp William B. Snyder.  Applications are reviewed by the Campmasters Committee.  After approval, the applicant is contacted to schedule Orientation Training and to identify which weekend(s) he/she can be at Camp.
