Pay people a decent wage and stop screwing staff by designating them "contract workers" not entitled to overtime or holiday pay.
Try paying them a decent salary. Stop treating them like idiots and take responsibility when you make the mistake not your employee.
Pay them what they are worth. They state they empower girls but the women who are staffed are not living that dream they cast. When you are on food stamps and still struggling when upper management die in those positions, you will not have longevity which keeps troops and volunteers intact. They don’t like working with a new person every 3 months. Cough up the cash for the membership managers.
Replace management. Camp should be fun for everyone. Everyone should be held to the same rules. Knowledgeable people should be hired for equines only, NOT self appointed "equine lead" and NOT people who have had such limited experience.
No one leave for any reason because Girl Scouts is amazing.

Listen to your employees and their concerns. Hold management accountable for mistakes and enforce policy for everybody not just those who are "on their way out"
Pay more money to your employees.

The only reason I left is because I graduated college and can not afford to spend the summer working at camp for the amount a camp counselor makes. If I had been able to save enough during the year, I would go back in a heartbeat and I may still volunteer for a week.

People leave for many reasons. That being said, realize this is a Non-Profit agency and there is not a lot of room for advancement.
