A scout always leaves his campsite looking better than he found it:
Police your area/building for all trash. Be sure to check under mattresses beds and tables. Don’t forget to check any bathrooms or latrines.
Sweep floors of cabins and latrines, taking time to knock down any cobwebs that have accumulated on walls, window sills, and in corners. Replace any tables or chairs to their original positions. Wipe down sinks and toilets as needed.
Be sure to tie up any used trash bags and take them to the dumpsters behind the dining hall. (please do not leave any trash in the site – this will attract animals and create a smell our next guests won’t appreciate.
See anything broken? Make note of any items that may need the Camp Rangers attention and give him the note when you check out.
As a scouter, this is your camp! If you see something that would make it better, please consider how you or your unit might help. Other than our Camp Ranger, all maintenance and camp improvements are completed by volunteers. Is there a project your unit could plan during your next visit? Talk to the Camp Ranger to discuss your plans.
On your arrival at camp, you must sign your group in at the Ranger’s Office. There is a clip board on the wall of the ranger’s house, if he is not available when you arrive.
Please check with the camp ranger, who will inspect the facility before you depart.
All fees are non-refundable. Fees are transferrable one time within a 90 day period.
