Staff Guidlines

  • Volunteers are required to arrive at camp by 1:45 pm.
  • Wear proper shoes – comfortable, sturdy, closed toe shoes (i.e. tennis shoes are best). Do not wear sandals.
  • Do not smoke in front of the campers. If you must smoke during Camp, the Camp Director will identify a secluded area.
  • Caps/hats are optional but encouraged. Make sure it has your first & last name in it!
  • There is no place at any Scouting function for swearing or abusive language. It will not be tolerated from the campers or from the staff. Using profanity will be cause for release as a staff member and campers will be sent home.
  • MAINTAIN HYDRATION: Don’t wait to get thirsty! Your body will appreciate it if you keep drinking water and you will be less likely to suffer from dehydration or heat exhaustion. Soft drinks and coffee tend to dehydrate you, too. If you start getting a dull headache, don’t blame it on your campers – you probably just need water and some cooling-down time! Encourage your campers to get a drink of water at every station they move to. Water will be available throughout camp to refill your water bottles.
  • There will be no initiations or hazing of staff or campers in any way, shape or form. This will also be cause for dismissal and possibly revocation of your membership in the Boy Scouts of America.
  • One of our overall aims in the Cub Scout program is to reaffirm and encourage the Scout Oath and Scout Law. You are a role model to the youth of this camp, and as such, you should demonstrate the proper application of these ideals all times during camp. Keep in mind, we are setting an example for the youth to follow. Always observe Scout-like behavior.
