Example Agenda

What else do I need to know?

Paperwork: All family members & anyone who wants to join scouting are welcome. To attend, we MUST have payment in full, medical forms, insurance card copies, youth immunization records, current tetanus vaccine for adults, and media releases. More information on paperwork can be found here: PAPERWORK 

Cost: All fees must be paid prior to signup closing. This fee covers meals (Saturday breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert), camping fee, and activity fees/ supplies. 

Parking: In designated parking areas only. Absolutely no vehicles other than those attached to trailers may be left in campsites without a special permit from the Camp Ranger. Do NOT park on the road since those must remain clear at all times. 

Water: Available at the camp. Each participant should have a personal water bottle for refills. 

Meals: All meals will be cooked by units in the campsites. All cooking shall be supervised, and preferably performed, by a person who holds a current Texas Food Handler Certification. Pre-packaged and individually wrapped snacks may be provided by your unit for your Scouts. These are not to be shared outside of your unit and should be distributed in such a way as to minimize personal contact or touching of multiple items. 

Bathrooms: These are available at most of the campsites (latrines). There are several “bathhouses” with flush toilets and showers available intermittently throughout the camp and activity areas. Please help us by keeping the toilets clean and immediately report any non-working toilets, sinks, or showers to the event coordinator, your committee chair, or Cubmaster. 

Health/Safety/First Aid: Minor first aid is the guardian's responsibility. Major first aid problems will be handled by camp first aid staff. All liquid fuels must be handled in accordance with National Boy Scout policy.
