You'll have to create a unique user name and password before
you can get started. 
If you are a registered BSA volunteered, you can enter your number.  If you are not a current registered BSA volunteer, your YPT will not save.  So, you must save/print a copy for your records. 

Suggestion:  Print two copies when training is completed - One for your records and one for your Pack Coordinator.


Walking Leaders/Den Chiefs:

Please review the walking leaders guide available below.





Station Leaders/Station Aides:

Arrive at Camp, sign in, and ready to collect station supplies by 8:00 am.  


Pack Reminder:  Each Pack needs to bring fresh ice every day to keep items in coolers cold.  Additional coolers are also useful to store extra water and lunches.  One cooler per den will be provided by the camp.

Uniform:


Please see the guidelines below for clothing during camp.  Those volunteers who volunteer all four days during camp, Tues - Fri, and have their pack volunteer schedule turned in on time (May Roundtable Deadline) will receive a FREE Camp T-shirt in appreciation for your help and service.

If a volunteer would like a camp shirt, and is not able to volunteer at camp for four days, they may purchase one.   Volunteer shirt color is Royal Blue, design pictured here. $9.00 per shirt or hoodie sweatshirts for $26.00.  Money and order is due through the pack coordinator by May Roundtable Deadline.  (Caribbean Blue is Core Staff / Red is Cub Scouts)
 
Other Things to Consider:

Since we provide good council to our Scouts, the same applies to our Leaders and Volunteers; as most of the same rules of what to bring and not to bring to camp apply. What you'll really need, and this is a short list, are:

  • Modest, comfortable, and appropriate clothes.

  • Good tennis shoes or hiking boots, No open toe shoes or sandals.

  • Station Leaders will be issued a camp identifier for the day. Please return these to headquarters for the next day's use.  All Volunteers attending all 4 days of camp will be issues a camp shirt to keep.  

  • A good hat that shades you from the sun.

  • Sunglasses.

  • A good solid water bottle that can hold about a quart.

  • Wear sunscreen and bug repellent (put it on before entering camp)

  • Fanny packs or day packs.

  • Sharpie.

  • Pen or Pencil

  • Although "It never rains at Day Camp," bring rain gear.    

Also, since you will be walking around most of the day; go on some walks with your family or workout for the week or two preceding camp and build up your endurance so that camp life is not such a challenge - remember, you'll be addressing your needs and the needs of a number of Scouts who may be in a new experience.  Please come equipped with some activities, etc. during down times or to change things up a bit; a bag of about half a dozen small activities can be useful.  Song and Skit Books can also be a big help!  Ideas will also be in the station and walking leader handbooks.
