Griswold Scout Reservation (Hidden Valley & Camp Bell)
Staff Hiring Process for Summer of 2016

 1) SUBMIT AN APPLICATION.

If you have not done so already, please submit a completed Staff application ASAP (ideally, at least two weeks before your interview) and send to one of these addresses:

A: US Mail:

GSR Hiring
c/o Daniel Webster Council
571 Holt Avenue
Manchester, NH  03109;

B: EMail:

camping@nhscouting.org.

NOTE:  In addition to sending one, please also bring a copy of your application to your interview!



You can Download a staff application here.

 

2) SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW.

The candidate (not the parent or Unit Leader) should email Mark Callahan to request a 20-minute interview (you are not automatically scheduled when you submit your application). Please indicate the specific range of times you are available for the date and location of preference. (For Youth Protection compliance, if you are under age 18, please copy a third party with your email to Mark (i.e.: a parent, your Scoutmaster, etc.).   Mark will email or call you back to confirm your location, date and scheduled time.  While you can select any date or location... please give some consideration to the travel distances involved (and possible weather challenges associated with those distances) before making your selection.  We have deliberately created several locations around (and south of) New Hampshire in an attempt to save you time and travel.  We recommend you choose a location closer to you, if at all possible!  (i.e.: you probably don't want a location which requires you being on the road 3hrs round-trip for a 20min interview, for instance - especially if someone else is driving you!).

NOTE: All interviews are scheduled in advance; no walk-ins are accepted at any location. You must have a pre-arranged interview time; DO NOT just show up!
