Twilight Camp thrives because of volunteers! Available positions include walking den leaders, administrative staff, event staff, program staff, and more!

We also need youth volunteers. Youth aged 14-17 are junior staffers! Youth aged 11-13 can attend as a helper to their parent.

A note for parents of Tigers (entering 1st grade in fall 2019): BSA requires all Tigers to have a parent or guardian with the boy at all times. These are called Tiger adult partners. Tiger adult partners must register for camp as a volunteer but are exempted from some volunteer requirements only if they are not also serving as a walking den leader. Read on for details.

Volunteer requirements summary table

BSA and the Texas Youth Camp Safety and Health Act require all staff and Tiger adult partners to fulfill several requirements. The following table breaks down what is required. Please also review the details below this table.

Youth Protection Training

Required for: adult staff
Optional for: Tiger adult partners

This is required by Texas law and BSA standards. All adult staff members must present evidence of completion for either of:

  • RECOMMENDED: The new online Youth Protection Training course at my.scouting.org. You will be emailed a certificate shortly after course completion. Print and bring that certificate with you.
  • BACKUP: Face to Face Youth Protection Training (F2FYPT) certificate that expires after June 7, 2019 and has Texas YC06-0014 on it.

Online training done before March 13, 2018 cannot be accepted. It is an older version of the training that does not meet Texas law requirements for this camp.

While Youth Protection is optional for Tiger adult partners. you are still requested to do it if possible.

Mandatory Twilight Camp training

Required for: adult staff, junior staff
Optional for: youth helpers, Tiger adult partners

This is required by Texas law and BSA standards. We will offer two training sessions. All staff aged 14 and older must attend either session:

  • Wednesday, May 29, 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM
  • Saturday, June 1, 9 AM – 10:15 AM

Both are at Ridgewood Park United Methodist Church (map).

While training is optional for Tiger adult partners, they are requested to attend if feasible.

Pay for t-shirt if not working entire week

One t-shirt is free for volunteers working all five days. You will pay for your camp t-shirt only if working four or fewer days. You will pay this when you register for camp. T-shirts are $10.

Camp setup and cleanup

Setup: All volunteers who need to set up for camp should do so on Sunday, June 2, 3 PM – 5 PM. Please avoid major setup on Monday, the first day of camp. The very beginning of camp is a major crunch time for us, and we need to focus on getting kids checked in and starting that day’s sessions.

Cleanup: All volunteers are requested to attend the camp cleanup on Saturday, June 8, 9 AM. We need to leave the facility as clean as we found it!

Daily cleanup: All volunteers will be asked to do a daily cleanup chore once or twice during the camp. We’ll go over this during the training session. It will mainly be to make sure that easily-soiled areas, like bathrooms, stay clean.
