Work at Camp

Working at our camps takes a special kind of person! Staff members are selected for their relevant skill and experience, their commitment and willingness to create a supportive environment for children, their ability to help deliver an overall quality camp experience, and their sense of professionalism. It is expected that all staff will support the beliefs and principles of the Girl Scout organization.

Just over the Golden Gate Bridge, Bothin offers dormitory-style accommodations (with 2 outdoor living units sleeping in open-air cabins or yurts) and features programs that focus on the performing arts as well as a general sampler of programs for first-time campers.

Many of our staff have strong performing arts backgrounds and experience in traditional Girl Scout programming as well as experience with younger girls. Out of all of our camps, Bothin is closest to a town, has the most modern facilities and accommodations, and predominantly younger, first-time campers. The weather is comfortable in the summer, usually in the 80s with cooler nights.

Skylark Ranch sits beneath the redwoods and overlooks the Pacific Ocean just north of Santa Cruz. A majority of the housing is platform tents, but there are 2 primitive units where campers and staff sleep in tree beds, hammocks, or under the stars. With a comprehensive English, Western, and Vaulting equestrian program, a third of the campers attend a riding program. Other programs focus on trips, ocean aquatics, wilderness skills, and team development.

The staff is made up up those with horse experience and strong outdoor adventure skills. Skylark Ranch is the most remote and disconnected camp, being 45 minutes from the nearest town and cell phone service. The weather is typically colder during the summer, in the 60s with heavy fog and ocean breezes.

Sugar Pine sits in an alpine setting, our furthest camp from the Bay Area, and is surrounded by tall pines at the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. Staff and campers sleep in pitched tents, covered wagons, tent cabins, and platform tents, but we also have 1 primitive unit. Activities feature western-themed programs, an adventure ropes course tower, an amazing pool, and other traditional camp activities.

In addition to the camper programs, Sugar Pine is home to Camp CEO, a summer experience for under-resourced older girls and adult mentors. Although Sugar Pine is up in the mountains, there are a number of close towns with shops and goods and amazing day trips throughout Calaveras County! The weather is usually warmer in the summer, in the high 80s and drops to the low 50s at night.

A small portion of our Volunteer-Run Day Camps and Resident Camps hire paid staff for core positions! You can find out more about their specific camps by visiting their websites.
