Camper & Parent Resources

Things to bring, Things to know for
Scout Campers and Their Parents...

 

Having the right clothing, food products, gear and hat are all fundamental requirements for safety and a great Day Camp experience!

 Campers who are not dressed appropriately, will be removed from the programs until proper clothing has been obtained.

 Campers need to arrive at camp, and be at the gathering area by 8:50 am.  Pick up time will be at 3:55.  Campers will need to be signed out prior to leaving.  If early exit is required, camper must be picked up by 3:15. 

What To Bring...

Clothing

Shirts: Supplied for Camp, be sure your scout is wearing their 'official' color-coded Day Camp T-Shirt... Shirts should be left at Camp every evening unless they are excessively soiled.  This prevents scouts from showing up without Official shirts.  If shirts are removed from camp for laundering, please remember them the next day.  No camp participation without a camp shirt on!

Foot wear: Sturdy shoes or hiking boots must be worn while at camp. No Open-Toed Shoes are acceptable!

Head wear: All participants are recommended to wear a hat, with a bill, that covers the entire head.

Please label all items coming from home, shirts, hats, jackets, etc.


Food, Gear and Other Stuff

Sack Lunches are needed every day, for all camps.  Please send the lunches in a plastic Ziploc type bag with their name on it.  Ice is dumped into the coolers and melts during the morning.  Without a Ziploc bag the lunches can become a soggy mess!

Bring a water bottle with water (Absolutely no glass containers!).  There are faucets available for refills!

Plan for inclement weather.  Be aware of what is happening each day.... Cool in the morning - warm in the afternoon - scattered showers.  Be Prepared!!  Although, we always think balmy high 70s, with a nice scattering of high, fluffy clouds!!


Bugs, Sun and Medications

It is recommended that campers use sunscreen and insect repellent prior to coming to camp.

Medications that need to be brought to camp must come to camp in the original prescription bottle prescribed by the medical physician.

Any over-the-counter medication being brought to camp must be in the original bottle labeled with the Scout’s name.

Special instructions must accompany all medications and signed by the parent/legal guardian.  These medications will be held and distributed (at prescribed times) by the camp’s medical personnel.  The medical officer, as per National Guidelines must collect all youth medications.

   
What "NOT" To Bring...

No portable radios, tape players, CD players, or electronic toys at camp.

No matches, fire starters, knives or other weapons at camp.

Cell Phones OFF…. Your attention needs to be on the Campers.

 

Helpful Things to Remember...

Please make sure your child has had a good breakfast prior to attending camp each day.

Campers will need a good night sleep to keep up with all the fun adventures of the day.
