Weekend Camping Polices & Procedures
Units are permitted to bring one vehicle into camp to unload at their campsites or lodge. Please help us keep our roads clear by not parking on them. All vehicles must be parked in the camp parking lot for the remainder of the weekend. At camp we have many scouts but none to spare, maximum speed limit on all camp roads is 5 M.P.H. Please do not park on lawns.
Potable water is available at three locations throughout camp: outside Totem Lodge, outside Foster Hall, and outside the Science Center. You may fill your clean water containers at these locations. Do not clean your dirty dishes at these water fill stations. Units are encouraged to carefully inspect cooking and water storage containers prior to arriving at camp. A chlorine sanitizer should always be used before and after each use of cooking equipment. Clean water is useless and dangerous in a dirty container.
No Receptacles are Provided at Campsites Units may place their trash bags in the GREEN dumpster behind Foster Hall upon their departure from camp. The blue dumpster is for paper/cardboard recycling only.
Report all injuries to the Campmaster and/or Ranger at Totem Lodge as soon as possible. If the emergency requires hospitalization or emergency medical treatment we will call ahead to make arrangements for you. Your unit is responsible for transportation and any costs incurred.
Check with the Campmasters regarding current fire conditions. Use of one fire ring for cooking and one for campfire is permitted if conditions permit. Units are reminded to use low impact camping practices. Due to insect infestation issues, bringing firewood on to camp property is prohibited. Please gather dead wood from around camp for your unit’s fire needs.
The only approved heat source in a cabin is the heat source it came with. The use of electric heaters, propane heaters, kerosene heaters or hair dryers is prohibited.
This area of our property makes for great hiking, fishing and exploring. Due to changing water conditions adult supervision is required in this area. Crossing the creek onto private property is not permitted.
Our lake is always open. Check with the Campmasters and/or Ranger for ice skating conditions. Ice Skating on Great Buck Lake is at your own risk! Fishing is permitted on a catch and release basis. Pennsylvania fishing laws do apply to our lake. Do not take or kill the grass carp in the lake, they control the algae.
Smoke detectors are installed in all of our buildings for your protection. It is a violation of local fire codes to tamper in any way with the smoke detectors. Units may be fined and loose camping privileges if they violate the fire code.
There is no smoking allowed in buildings, on the porches of buildings. No tobacco use is permitted around children. Your cooperation with this policy is appreciated.
Conservation and maintenance projects for the benefit of our camp are always available. See the Campmasters and/or Ranger for details.
The following items are simply not tolerated on our property: alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, fireworks, firearms (other than those that are part of an approved shooting activity). Your cooperation is appreciated.
