STEP 2. ARRIVING AT CAMP
Checking-In to Camp
The check in process begins in the main parking lot. Packs and Families arriving earlier than their scheduled check in time are asked to remain in the main parking lot. All paperwork will be due at this time.
The simplest method of checking in your Pack, is for the entire pack to arrive at one time. We suggest maybe meeting in the main parking lot together, then sending one representative over to check everyone in.
Equipment transportation to and from the sites is provided for Packs and families arriving at camp during check-in. If all of the Pack’s equipment is all in one vehicle, that one vehicle is allowed to drive to the site and unload. (This does not apply to Pack members who arrive individually). After unloading, the vehicle must be returned to the parking lot.
No commercial or home-made campers are allowed in campsites. No vehicles are allowed to remain parked in the campsites
*ADVENTURE DAYS: Packs who participate in Adventure days do not need to bring a tarp or pop-up canopy. Each Pack will be provided a table in the dining hall to keep their day to day items and use for breaks.
All prescription medications are the responsibility of the adult leader in charge of the Pack. It is expected that medications such as inhalers, epi-pens, and other medicines that must be held on the person at all times. Packs should bring a lockable box to keep medications in while not in use. Medications that require refrigeration may be stored either at the dining hall or first aid station depending on the time they should be distributed. Parents’ written permission to administer medicines must accompany all prescription drugs.
All Scouts and adults must be given a swim check by the camp aquatic staff before they are permitted in any aquatic area. The swim check consists of the following:
Swimmer: Jump feet first into water over your head. Swim 75 yards utilizing any strong stoke. Swim 25 yards using the elementary backstroke. Float motionless.
Beginner: Jump feet first into water over your head. Swim 50 feet. (Swimmer must make one turn within the 50 feet.)
Non-swimmer: No swimming required. Limited use of Boating and Swimming activities. Anyone who declines to participate in the swim test will be categorized as a non-swimmer and limited to the shallow end of the pool. Some restrictions may apply in the boating area as well.
Leaders Orientation Meeting
On the first evening there will be a meeting for an adult from each Pack. Information concerning the camp, its policies, emergency procedures, and alarm system are covered. It’s imperative that “a” Pack leader attend this meeting.
*ADVENTURE DAYS: If any news needs to be shared with adult leaders an announcement will be made at lunch with a meeting following dismissal.
Opening & Closing Campfires
All Packs and individuals are encouraged to attend the opening and the closing campfires at camp. Times vary for each session.
*ADVENTURE DAYS: Will open at the beginning of the week with a welcoming at the front of the Dining Hall and close with a campfire activity on Thursday afternoon.
