Youth Staff

Youth Staff Application: online form

The Youth Staff is a group of highly motivated former DECA camp participants that volunteer their time over the summer to bring the best experience possible to all camp attendees. They are all recent high school graduates who are responsible for running small group sessions, developing skits, leading groups through co-initiative small ropes course, having fun with all campers, collaborating with other Youth Staff, and working with adult staff members during the Summer Leadership Retreat.

The success of camp rests heavily on the shoulders of the leaders selected for Youth Staff.

Benefits of joining Youth Staff include leadership training, mentoring the future of Ohio DECA, building lifelong friendships, learning more about yourself than you could ever imagine, growing and maturing as an individual, repaying DECA and the Marketing Education community, and being a part of a talented group of diverse individuals with a history decades old.
