All medications come to camp with a camp medication permission form. At Medical check in upon arrival, your son meets the nurse to review his medication. Medication is logged in and secured at the Health Lodge. The Scoutmaster is given a time schedule for all his scouts. If the scout does not get to the health lodge at the time of administration the Troop is notified to send him. Scouts with inhalers and epi pens can carry them after a review with the nurse at check in.

The Culture. Many of the staff have served at camp for decades. Along with members of the staff that are college and high school students we have developed a culture that is the Scouting spirit, practices good teaching methods, and is fun. From the 11 year old Boy Scout to our 45 season Waterfront director. For 30 years we have accumulated good ideas from camps we see or hear about, and have retained them all.
This is a frequent question. 4th period (3:30-5pm) and evenings are filled with hikes, fishing, sports, outpost, open areas, COPE and conservation projects. Boys will choose among all of these and often a Troop has scouts and leaders in many directions at once. It does take both youth and adult organization. We view having too much to do as a good “problem” to have.
A parent can visit a child at any time at any Scouting activity. When it comes to camp it often is best to ask the Scout Leader when is the best time for their Troop. Often Troops invite parents to supper on cookout day, the Order of the Arrow Ceremony, or other time when the Troop may be gathered together.
