The Program
The day camp experience is filled with fun and exciting program activities, including adventures in BB’s, archery, sports, swimming, water slide, funoes, first aid, nature and more. Wolves will make a wood craft and Bears will have whittling experience in order to achieve the whittling chip card. The Wolf, Bear and Webelos Scouts attending the entire Day Camp experience will have the opportunity to earn achievements for the upcoming year, as well as electives and belt loops. Note: Bad weather, skill level, or conditions beyond our control could affect some advancements, but the Scout will be encouraged to “do his best” and FUN will be the most important objective.

Day Camp Staff
The staff is all volunteer and consists of adults registered with the Boy Scouts of America and Scout staff consisting of registered Boy Scouts who are 14 years or older and have reached the rank of First Class or above. Staff members receive training prior to camp. We are seeking volunteers from individual units to fill staff positions. Day Camp cannot be run without the help of volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the Camp Director, Mike Hakes, at (216) 5131860 or mph@windstream.net in order to complete a Staff Application.

What are the Rules?
1. Chaperone Policy
Packs must provide chaperones for their Cub Scouts attending Day Camp. The adult must be at least 21 years of age and can be a den leader, parent, family member, or friend. The chaperones are responsible for accompanying the Scouts throughout the day and for the discipline and behavior of the Scouts during camp. Chaperones are expected to attend a Day Camp Orientation in order to acquaint them with BSA policies and Day Camp procedures. Any questions need to be directed to camp leadership.

2. Activity Station Policy
The chaperones are responsible for accompanying the Scouts from station to station. All Scouts should stay with the group and not run ahead. Please take a head count upon arrival and again upon departure from each station. Observe the buddy system. When changing stations, one adult should lead and another should walk at the back of the group. IMPORTANT: If someone should become lost from your group, please notify a staff member immediately. At that time the camp leadership will conduct a search according to the established procedures. Do NOT try to find the missing person yourself! Your responsibility is to the group.

3. Sibling Policy
The camp program is structured for registered Cub Scouts. Siblings are not encouraged to attend; however, if necessary, the chaperones may bring their own children along to camp. These children will be the responsibility of the parent and must not detract from that parent performing his/her chaperone duties. No special program will be provided. Reminder: An Individual Participant Registration Form and a BSA Health and Medical History Form must be filled out for ALL siblings attending, whether participating or not. Siblings who wish to participate in the summer camp

activities must pay the registration fee. Finally, PLEASE NOTE that siblings are NOT covered under BSA insurance! 4. BSA Health and Medical History Form Policy
Every person attending camp must have a BSA Health and Medical History Form completed and signed. Anyone not having a completed health form will not be permitted to participate in the camp program. If daily medicine is taken, it must be listed on the health form, even if the medication is not taken at camp. If there are any special needs (example: medical, physical, behavioral, etc.), please note them on the health form. All information on the health form will be kept in strict confidence. These forms will be kept on file with the Camp Medical Officer. All Medications, except emergency medication such as inhalers, bee sting kits, etc. must be turned into the Camp Medical Officer in their original containers clearly marked with the name of the person prescribed for. This medication will be dispensed and administered at the first aid station at the prescribed times. All Scouts must have an adult present at the time of administration.

5. First Aid Policy
A Camp Medical Officer will be available during the daytime program. The medical officer must evaluate ANYONE who is injured – no matter how slightly. The instructions on the health form will be followed for notification and treatment in the case of any injury, incident, or emergency.
