PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO CAMP PRIOR TO NOON.  THE STAFF NEEDS TIME TO CLEAN AND SET UP PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL.

Meeting Up

Your pack should meet up first in your campsite.  Make sure your campers know when & where to meet, as well as what to wear.  Most packs choose to wear their Cub Scout Uniforms over top of their swimsuits.  If your pack already completed their swim tests, you don’t need to wear swim trunks that day.  If you see a problem with your campsite, let us know at check-in.

Registration

Your pack will begin check-in at the Parade Field Porch of the Dining Hall. Please submit your roster prior to camp via Doubleknot.  At registration you will: pay remaining camp fees, pay for pack pictures, pay for those attending the family dinner, and you may place your deposit for next year’s camp.  Whenever possible, please collect all money from parents ahead of time and pay for all of this together.  Checks may be made payable to Minsi Trails Council.  You will receive your patches and can pick up any additional Buddy Tags you might need.  A staff member will help you through the rest of check-in.

Dining Hall Orientation

In the Dining Hall to review the waiter system.  If your pack has members with special dietary concerns, please review them with the Dining Hall Staff.  Please also encourage parents to email concerns prior to camp at akelaland@gmail.com two or three weeks prior to camp.

Health Lodge

At the Health Lodge you will review any pertinent medical information with the health officer.  Every person staying in camp must have a Class 3 BSA Medical form with a doctor’s signature in the last 12 months.  Medications in their original bottles must be brought to the Health Lodge check-in.  Procedures for storing and accessing your medications will be reviewed at this time.  

Swim Tests

Every pack must travel to the pool even if they have already completed their swim tests.  Hand your completed (but not yet colored) swim tests to the lifeguard staff.  If your pack has access to a lifeguard and pool prior to camp they may complete their swim tests and submit a roster of completed swim tests and the credentials of the person completing the test.  Those who complete a test prior to camp will not need to test on Sunday, but the staff reserves the right to retest anyone who appears to not swim as well as their tag indicates.  Anyone who chooses not to test will be listed as a non-swimmer.


PROGRAM SCHEDULES WILL BE GIVEN OUT AFTER THE SUNDAY EVENING CAMPFIRE
