Day Camp 2003
Adult Training Basics

  1. Your responsibilities as an Adult Leader at daycamp:
    • Explanation of "Daycamp Dens" and Packs
    • Assist Daycamp Staff in assuring that campers have a safe and fun-filled week!
    • Get them to the designated program areas
    • Keep the boys SAFE
    • Assist the boys with projects/events
    • Assist Program Managers in each area to keep the boys under control and focused.
    • Implement sign-in and sign-out procedures, DO NOT leave if all boys have not been picked-up, take them to headquarters if necessary
    • Report any difficulties to the Camp Director or Camp Administrator
    • Take all medical problems (even a scratch) to the Health and Safety Officer. Do not treat them yourself! This includes adult injuries.
    • Be aware of camp Emergency/Evacuation Procedures
    • Lunch time is NOT free time (you are still responsible for the boys in your Den)
    • Utilize BSA's Youth Protection Guidelines
    • Label Everything!! It's a good idea to bring a sharpie pen and some masking tape. Each den will be provided with a 5 gallon bucket to help carry the boys things.
    • At least one Adult in each Den needs to bring a cooler with ice for the boys lunches and water bottles. Wagons are a good idea for hauling around stuff.
    • Adults need to be a little early for each session, so you are there to check the boys in.
    • Daycamp Uniform: Camp T-shirts are to be worn everyday. Tennis shoes or hiking boots. Hats are a good idea. T-shirts are color coded as follows: Daycamp Staff - royal blue; Camp Medics - red; Adult Volunteers (this would be you) - light blue; Youth Volunteers - orange; Campers - turquoise; Siblings - bright green
    • You will have to pay $2.00 per day to O'Neill Park for parking.
  2. Emergency/Evacuation Procedures:

    • Parking
    • Lost camper procedure
    • Suspicious characters
