Annual Thanksgiving Camp 2012

Camp V-Bar Thanksgiving Camp Leader’s Guide
Southeast Louisiana Council, Boy Scouts of America P. O. Box 1146, Metairie, LA 70004 http://www.bsa-selacouncil.org

Dear Unit Leaders: Welcome to the 2012 camping season at Camp V-Bar. Throughout the years, we have continued to strive to fulfill our obligation of offering an excellent Thanksgiving Camp program for Scouts. We look forward to providing your Troop the program and quality service they deserve and for which Camp V-Bar is well known for. We hope this Leader’s Guide will be helpful to you and your troop in planning your Thanksgiving camping experience. Whether your Scouts are new to your Troop or experienced Eagle Scouts, we offer a program for all, including a first-Year camper program, a traditional merit badge program, and a complete high adventure program for older Scouts and Ventures. 2011 we continued with improvements to the program. Last Thanksgiving Camp we added new merit badges and added the Chess and Checkers Tournament. This year we are striving for a fun academic setting that will allow your scouts to learn, grow and bring some knowledge home to the other scouts who could not attend Thanksgiving Camp. In order to prepare for your 2012 camping experience, please begin preparation now. The Leader’s Guide is designed to assist Scoutmasters and Senior Patrol Leaders in planning your Troop’s attendance at Camp V-Bar for Thanksgiving Camp. If you have question, or cannot find answers, feel free to contact the SELA Council Service Center directly. Thanksgiving Camp is designed to be the midpoint of your Troop’s camping year. Our dedicated staff will do everything in its power to make sure your stay with at Camp V-Bar creates memories that will last a lifetime. Let’s get to work and make V-Bar 2012 one for all to remember! On behalf of the Southeast Louisiana Council and the 2012 Camp V-Bar Thanksgiving Camp Staff, we look forward to seeing you this fall! Yours in Scouting,

REFUNDS: Refunds will be issued for camp fee with written notification from the Scoutmaster except for a $15.00 processing fee to cover costs incurred for that Scout prior to cancellation. A check request for any refund must include the Scout’s name, amount to be refunded, and the reason for the cancellation. This must be done no less than 7 days prior to their arrival at Camp. If one fails to request a refund within seven (7) days prior to arrival at camp, you will not receive a refund. Exceptions apply for medical reasons only (must have written doctor’s excuse).
http://www.bsa-selacouncil.org 4 2012ThanksgivingCampLeader’sGuide

CHECK REQUESTS: Any requests for refund must be made seven days prior to check-in at Camp, for the Scout’s, or the Troop’s, week at Camp. Upon check-in at Camp, the total fees owed and the amounts paid will be balanced and a check request completed at that time. CAMP TELEPHONE: There is a designated public telephone at camp for use by the Troop’s leadership. Scout campers must clear any personal use of the camp phone with Troop’s leadership and must be accompanied by an adult when using the camp phone. The public phone is located just outside the entrance to the Administration Building. Parents are encouraged to purchase disposable Long Distance Cards prior to their arrival for their sons to use while in camp. Incoming calls for Scouts will be accepted on the business phone, and a message will be relayed to the Troop Leader. The call back will be on the public telephone. The business/emergency phone CANNOT BE TIED UP FOR PERSONAL PHONE CALLS. CELLULAR PHONES: Cellular phone use by campers is prohibited. Scoutmasters are asked to confiscate cellular phones so that inadvertent phone calls to home do not prompt surprise visits from parents during the week. Scoutmasters can and should regulate all phone calls to home in order to avoid home sickness. DINING HALL Each Troop will eat at assigned tables, and will furnish a Table Waiter for each table to assist before, during, and after the meal. There is a ratio of 1 waiter per every 8 individuals. The table waiter should report to the Dining Hall 15 minutes prior to each meal. It is the responsibility of the Table Waiter to: (1) set his table, (2) refill drink pitchers during the meal, (3) wipe down tables and (4) sweep the area. It is important for unit leaders to assist the Dining Hall Staff by not allowing their Scouts to leave the Dining Hall until dismissed by the Dining Hall Steward. The Dining Hall Steward will dismiss the Table Waiters when they have completed their duties. Scout Leaders are expected to spread this responsibility among all boys attending Camp. It is a suggestion that your Troop’s first Table Waiter be an experienced Scout, to demonstrate the proper methods to your Scouts. Scouts are required to be in Class-A Uniform for the evening meals. DIETARY NEEDS The Dining Hall Staff serves well-balanced meals meeting Daily Dietary Nutrition Needs. If you have special medical or religious dietary needs, the Dining Hall Staff can accommodate your requests. We ask that you address those needs with the Chef (Josh Maille) prior to coming to Camp. He can be contacted at jmaille@its.nicholls.edu

http://www.bsa-selacouncil.org 7Page 1 2012ThanksgivingCampLeader’sGuide

SCHEDULE OVERVIEW:
Merit Badge and related activities at Camp V Bar are designed to fit into a three and ½ day schedule. Classes are held in two sessions in the morning with two more in the afternoon on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Scouts are encouraged to stay current and to use this extra time to make sure all requirements are met.

PREREQUISITES NEEDED:
The class perquisites will be on another document in the guidebook. Please complete all prerequisites before coming to camp. Please have a signed note with the requirements you completed and the date you completed them. This note/blue card must be presented to the counselor before the course begins. (In order for the prerequisite to be honored, The Scoutmaster, Merit Badge Couselor and scout must sign and date the note.)

ADVANCEMENT IN CAMP:
Advancement in Camp is the same as it is at home. To have a successful experience in the merit badge program at Thanksgiving Camp, your Scouts must actively participate in the program every day. Some merit badges can be completed during the camping session; however, others have requirements for observations, tests, record keeping, or time requirements that must be completed over an extended period. In these cases, complete all or as many as possible, of these requirements prior to camp. Make sure to review the comments and prerequisites of each merit badge prior to arriving at camp. See to it that your Scouts have reviewed the badges that they are attempting at Camp. See to it that they are familiar with the requirements, and the skills that are involved with each badge they are attempting. Make sure that they have completed any requirements that must be done before arriving in Camp. See to it that they have any proofs of completion from their counselor with them for work that has been finished prior to Camp. An “Incomplete Form”, indicating partial completion of requirements, will be given to Scouts unable to complete the full badge requirements while in Camp. Merit Badge Counselors are dedicated to making sure every willing Scout completes as much as possible. If there are any accommodations we can make to ensure a youth completes a merit badge or rank requirement, please let us know. Camp V Bar encourages the participation and assistance of adult leadership with the instruction of merit badges and activities.

FUNCTION OF THE TROOP AND PATROL METHOD IN CAMP:
Camp V Bar strongly encourages the use of the Troop and Patrol method while at Camp. It will be the duty of the Senior Patrol Leader to attend the evening Senior Patrol Meetings and keep the Troop informed on what is happening around Camp. The Senior Patrol Leader is encouraged to conduct PLC meetings. If the Troop’s elected SPL is not at Camp, the Troop should elect or appoint a Senior Patrol Leader to act in his place for the week. The camp experience will bring Patrols together, especially for first-year Scouts. Units are encouraged to bring Troop and Patrol flags with them to Camp.

Beginner’s Luck Program
Thanksgiving Camp’s Beginner’s Luck Program ensures that new scouts begin their journey the right way with a little luck to guide them through the Trail to Eagle. This new premier program will take new scouts through the requirements of tenderfoot through first class rank, while emphasizing the role of a patrol in the development of the scout in his journey. We give scouts the opportunity to complete a significant amount of the requirements of tenderfoot through first class rank and the chance to earn the first aid, wilderness survival and emergency preparedness merit badge. Beginner’s Luck is a comprehensive program that takes a lot of time and effort from our staff and the scouts in the program. The morning porting of this comprehensive program involves the teaching of requirements in tenderfoot through first class, while the evening portion will deal with first aid, wilderness survival and emergency preparedness merit badges. Our goal is to be able to work with the scouts, while giving them each individual attention. We will also foster a sense of leadership and responsibility through the development of patrols within the program. There will be a swim trip, which will cover the swimming requirements and an overnight camping trip in which the scouts will build their own shelter. This shelter shall qualify them for their final requirement of wilderness survival. Finally, the major goal of this program is to get these new scouts on the right track in beginning their journey on the Trail to Eagle through patrol based hands on skill development.

TAPS/QUIET HOURS: Taps occurs at 10:30 p.m. All campers are expected to be in their campsites by that time. Unit activities such as night hikes, astronomy, etc…would constitute an exception. Reveille is 6:00 a.m. LASER POINTERS: Laser pointers are not allowed at Camp. KITCHEN: The kitchen area is off limits for all except Dining Hall personnel. If anything is needed from the kitchen, please ask the Camp Administration. HEALTH & SAFETY The Health Lodge is staffed 24 hours a day by persons trained to handle minor accidents or illness. All injuries, regardless of the extent, must be reported to and treated at the Health Lodge. Special arrangements for the treatment of more serious cases have been made with Hancock Medical Center in Bay St. Louis. In the event such treatment is required, the camper’s parents will be notified by telephone giving the nature of the emergency, and their desires concerning further treatment will be followed. If the parents of any Scout will not be home during the time he is in camp, please find out where they can be reached and note this information on the Scout’s medical form. The Boy Scouts of America recommends that all youth and adult members have annual medical evaluations by a certified and licensed health-care provider. In an effort to provide better care to those who may become ill or injured and to provide youth members and adult leaders a better understanding of their own physical capabilities, the Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered at the end of this guidebook in a threepart medical form. Note that unit leaders must always protect the privacy of unit participants by protecting their medical information. The Annual Health and Medical record is to be completed for participants and parents or guardians and kept on file for easy reference. It is to be completed and signed by a certified and licensed health-care provider— physician (MD, DO), nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant as appropriate for your state every 12 months. The medical forms are available at the Council Service Center at no charge or you can make your own copies from the sample enclosed in the Appendix. At the medical screening given each camper and leader, upon his arrival, the camp reserves the right to refuse admittance or involvement in any activity to any individual who, in the opinion of the examining person and the Camp Director, has developed any physical or medical situation which could present a hazard to the individual or other individuals. All out-of-council Troops attending Thanksgiving camp at Camp V-Bar must have a copy of their Medical/ Accident Policy or provide proof of individual coverage to submit to the Camp Staff upon arrival. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. If your Troop DOES NOT have Medical/Accident coverage, please contact the Camp Director (or) your District Executive 30 days prior to camp. Southeast Louisiana Council troops are covered by Accident Insurance purchased by the council.

THE RISK ZONE “The Risk Zone” is a state of physical and mental fatigue that is a major cause of highway crash fatalities. As a leader it is your challenge to do all that you can to keep Scouts safe, both at Camp and while traveling to and from Salmen Scout Reservation. Take the Driver’s Pledge and get a good night’s sleep the night before you come to Camp and on your last night at Camp. The Driver’s Pledge is a commitment to plan ahead and avoid killer fatigue. A special training session on “The Risk Zone” will be offered each week during Thanksgiving camp for all drivers – youth and adult.

Camp V-Bar Driver’s Pledge
I WILL NOT DRIVE WHEN I FEEL FATIGUED. I realize that when I am fatigued, I process information slower and less accurately, and this impairs my ability to react in time to avoid accidents. I WILL GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP before I drive to camp – and my last night at camp. I WILL MAKE TRAVEL PLANS that take into account my personal biological clock and I will only drive while alert.

DIRECTIONS TO SALMEN SCOUT RESERVATION FROM NEW ORLEANS
Travel East on Interstate 10 from Slidell approximately 20.2 miles from the intersection of I-10 and I-59 and exit at Mississippi Exit # 13. Then proceed North on Mississippi Highway 603 approximately 14.6 miles. This will place you 1.0 mile past the Victory Baptist Church where you will turn right onto Standard Dedeaux Rd. You will see a Salmen Scout Reservation Sign. From this turn “when going to Camp - Stay Left” you will proceed approximately 2.1 miles passing the “Halfway Grocery” and come to a fork in the road with a Brick house near this fork. Turn Left and proceed approximately 1.7 miles to a 3 way stop sign again stay left and proceed 0.5 miles to the Entrance of Salmen Scout Reservation which will be on your left.
