Hi Moose and Welcome to the list! Some general comments for you, but
it could be just as useful to other folks about your age that are on

Then you need to go into the Council office there and seek out the
person that is serving as the programs and camping executive and get
your name on the mailing list for Summer Camp staff there. There are
EXCELLENT camps there in Iowa, having several Councils there and lots
of camping facilities...don't forget, you're also close to Illinois,
and they are looking for folks too.
The camp placement season started yesterday, and many Camp Directors
are saying that getting "quality staffers" this year will be harder.
There's fewer camping facilities (due to the BSA's version of the
military's drawdown, there's fewer camping facilities in each Region
than what it used to be!), so the competition out there to fill ALL of
the camping slots are really great!
So, Moose, get in there and get you a summer camp job there in the
great state of Iowa (corn and ADM country...supermarket to the world!
hehehe...I had to say that, because, well....I say it every Sunday
morning during the ADM commercials on "This Week with David Brinkley"
(and it drives Jessiann up the wall!) )

What's wrong with APO? APO is more than a "has-been Scouting club".
As a matter of fact, APO is a worldwide network of leaders, of folks
that *want* to be of service to their communities, nations and their
campuses. Yeah, while APO was rooted in the ideals of the Boy Scouts
of America, today's APO members (male and female) don't neccessarily
have a Scouting background (too bad), but make the most of each week,
each day, trying to help other people at all times.
Go ahead, try APO out next semester. You will find folks there that
really are interested in working. Of course, you'll also find people
there that want to make a name for themselves, or want to be with
their friends, or want to simply add something else onto their college
resume. But those knuckleheads are in the vast (and extremely small)
I'll say more about APO later on....but, I'm not knocking your
decision to find a Scout Troop there...that's what I did when I
started college...(the college where I went to did NOT want then nor
now a APO chapter). I enjoyed it and it led me to my role as a
Paraprofessional in that area of the nation as well.
Let us all know how things are going, academically AND Scouting-wise!
