About Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts of America offers one of the most rewarding career opportunities for college graduates and for professionals who are searching for a career change that will have significant impact on their communities. There are many opportunities for employment with the Boy Scouts of America, from seasonal jobs at summer camps to a lifelong career. The responsibilities are as broad as the tasks are varied, and no two days are the same for a typical Scouting district executive. No matter where they work, in the city, the suburbs, or the countryside, one thing is for certain—this is anything but a “cubicle” job.

Our field staff are typically found in the community, not behind a desk. The job of the professional Scouter is to inspire, recruit, train, and support the BSA’s adult volunteers. In addition, they work with community leaders to rally public support for Scouting.


Scoutcraft Director

June 2021 - August 2021 Brant Lake, NY
“I loved being able to teach merit badge classes. This was a really good experience for me, and I also learned a lot from the scouts. My favorite class I taught was wilderness survival, and have fond (but chilly) memories of the overnight treks I did. It was definitely hard, but so worth it. ”
