Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington is looking for head cooks! In this role, you'll be the lead in charge of planning and executing delicious and nutritious meals for campers and staff.

Responsibilities include:

  • Plan menus and prepare nutritious meals for campers and staff. Provide varied and healthy vegetarian options and options for campers and staff with special dietary needs.
  • Prepare and serve meals that meet state health standards and GSOSW health standards, as planned and on time.
  • Provide food order lists for meals before the order date; check incoming food against orders and invoices. Return any damaged food or products immediately.
  • Direct and assist with serving food and proper cooling and storing of leftovers.
  • Maintain the kitchen according to health, safety, and sanitary standards, including proper storage and serving.
  • Assist the Assistant Camp Director with supervising the kitchen aides.

Spending time in the outdoors is a cornerstone of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Outdoor experiences in Girl Scouts provide opportunities for girls to discover, connect, and take action in ways that build courage, confidence, and character. These experiences increase girls’ understanding and curiosity about the natural world and shape girl leaders who are environmentally conscientious. Learn more about our camps on our website.

To make all of this possible, we need dedicated and talented staff to help teach girls new skills and keep them safe as they explore new camp experiences. We are looking for people who are excited about the opportunity to live and work in rustic resident camp settings from July 3 through August 24. This position is required to live on-site, with limited time off. Staff must be willing to live and work in rustic facilities such as screened cabins, yurts, and Adirondacks. Shower and toilet facilities are separate from cabins and could include non-flush toilets and dormitory-style showers.


  • Knowledge of kitchen procedures and experience in quantity cooking.  
  • Knowledge of dietary needs such as gluten-free, lactose intolerant, vegetarian, and vegan.
  • Experience in a supervisory role, running a kitchen, meal planning, and placing large food orders is helpful.
