The Campmaster Corps is a group of Scouters who support weekend camp reservations at Camp Friedlander and Cub World. Scout units and other groups that use any part of the camp properties are greeted by and assisted by a Campmaster during their visit. The Campmaster helps groups gain access to the facilities and provide equipment, programs, and other friendly services to all our visitors. Working with the Ranger Staff, the Campmaster Corps is the primary customer service team for the Dan Beard Scout Reservation.

Campmasters stay in comfortable facilities that includes beds, kitchen equipment and amenities, and private bathrooms. Some Campmasters serve as a husband and wife team and enjoy a weekend away at camp while helping the camp. You can select your own weekend and frequency of service, but most campmasters usually serve 2 to 6 times a year. The Campmaster Corps meets twice a year to evaluate its program, set a schedule, and to arrange for the training of any new members.

All registered Scouters are eligible for consideration as a Campmaster. Selection is based of ability in several areas including outdoor skills, specialized knowledge of nature, conservation, or field sports.  Good people skills is a must, as is the ability to handle an emergency. Campmasters should have a working knowledge of Scouting and camping guidelines. All campmasters are required to attend a training, held several times throughout the year, to be educated on camp policies and procedures and to best serve our camp visitors.
