Before a troop can stay overnight on camp property in a self-contained facility (lodge style, everyone in the same building), someone in the troop must complete the Be Safe, Be Ready online course. There are two parts to this online training – Outings and Overnights and Girl Planning. After completion, leader will receive an Overnight License.
Before a troop can stay overnight in tents or cabins, someone in the troop must complete the online Be Safe, Be Ready and Fire Building, Outdoor Cooking and the Overnight Camp Experience courses. After completing these courses, the leader will receive a Camping License. For more information on these courses, as well as when they're scheduled, please visit the online calendar.
Any day or overnight trip to a camp property requires that an adult with current CPR and first aid must accompany the troop. Additionally, the size of the camporee itself might require a Level II First Aider be on-site. Consult the 2010 All Safety Activity Checkpoints and be sure that copies of all certifications are on-site during the camporee.
Carefully read the camp and unit descriptions when planning where to assign the troops for the camporee. Consider program age level, the volunteers' level of outdoor training and the specific site requests troops have made on their forms.
Be prepared and also remember that for all of our camps, you must provide your own cleaning supplies, paper towels and toilet paper.
