Camp Rules

Cub Scouts:

  • Wear camp T-shirt each day.
  • Wear comfortable, sturdy, closed toe shoes (i.e. tennis shoes)
  • Participate in all activities unless there is a written excuse
  • Maintain the Buddy System. Remain with your Den Guides and Den at all times. Boys may go to the restrooms at any time with adult permission and with their buddy.
  • Respect our camp location… We are GUESTS at Wills Park.
  • DO NOT BRING KNIVES, MATCHES or ELECTRONICS of any kind.
  • DO BRING SMILES COOPERATION AND COURTESY

Cub Scout Guidelines:

  • No sandals – we tell the boys to wear sturdy shoes and you should, too!
  • 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 and abusive language. It will not be tolerated from the boys, and it will not be tolerated 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 Cubs – you probably just need water and some cooling-down time! Encourage your Cubs 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 Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack and Scout Oath. You are a role model to the youth of this camp, and, as such, you should demonstrate the proper application of the ideals.
  • All staff members will be expected to adhere to the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, Scout Oath and Scout Law at all times in camp. Again, we are setting an example for the boys to follow. Always observe Scout-like behavior.
