The Alamo Area Council is Reviving the Campmaster Corps

The Campmaster Corps is a group of selected registered scouters who volunteer to serve the Alamo Area Council short term camp whenever troops, packs, teams or crews are using Mays Family Scout Ranch, McGimsey Scout Park, or Bear Creek Scout Reservation.  The function of the Campmaster Corps will be to form a strong, well-oriented group of the leaders to officially represent the council while at camp. 

The purpose of the Campmaster program will be as follows:

  • Provide a central point of contact for units and other visitors during check-in and check-out.
  • Advise units and visitors of camp policies and procedures and enforce when needed. 
  • Monitor traffic coming in and out of camp. 
  • Direct units and visitors to their destination.
  • Assist the camp ranger/manager in the event of an emergency.
  • Maintain a safe and friendly environment for campers.
  • Assist in the protection of council property by helping reduce vandalism and theft of property. 
  • Assist with minor maintenance at camp to help maintain the property. 

We are looking for teams of 2-4 individuals that are willing to give 2 or 3 weekends a year to help create a better environment at our local camps.  You may volunteer for one, two or all three camps.  There is required training to be a Campmaster and our first training will be held at the Mays Family Scout Ranch on December 3, 2016.  There is no cost to attend the training, please register by clicking on the orange link to the right.

Your next step is to sign up for the training and attend.  After the training, we will give an opportunity for you to sign up with teams and for weekends.
