Health, Safety & Security
All activities will follow the BSA guide to Safe Scouting. Scouts will need to stay away from areas that are not in use by the camp, including parking lots and any construction on the grounds.
Scouting appropriate T-shirts will need to be worn each day. All participants, youth and adult, must wear close-toed shoes when walking through camp and at all activities excluding the water activities.
We are all members of the Boy Scouts of America. As such, the basic rules of conduct at Day Camp are the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, Scout Oath & Scout Law. The conduct and discipline of Scouts are the parents’ and leaders’ responsibility. The camp staff is not responsible for the discipline of any Scout (unless it is a case of imminent bodily harm or property damage).
All Scouts and Adults must have a properly completed and signed health form (Parts A and B) in order to participate in the camp program. The official Annual BSA Health & Medical Record form #680-001 is required for all participants. The form is available at the council office and can also be downloaded to your computer as a PDF file through www.Scouting.org/forms. The new PDF version is user-friendly. The information can be saved, and thus updated as needed and printed out. Parts A and B are required for all campers, youth and adult, attending for any part of camp. This form does not require a physical or doctor’s signature.
Emergency Medical Care will be provided at our Camp. We will also have a Health Officer on Staff that can administer First Aid.
Security at the Camp is very important. Packs are expected to be responsible, to use common sense and are accountable for their youth members. Please, if you see someone who does not look like they’re there participating in our camp or looks suspicious, please report to a Staff member immediately.
