FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to your frequently asked questions about Taste of Scouting.
What type of leadership is provided?
Campers at this program are one on one with a parent. We provide the qualified staff who for many positions, need to be trained by certified instructors to run activities like BB’s and Archery.
At what time and how do we check-in?
Families can arrive starting at 10:00 AM. on Saturday. Vehicles should be parked in the designated parking areas only (no vehicles are allowed in camp. Come prepared with a wagon and stop in at the Admin Building to check in and get your campsite assignment, schedule, and map.
Do we need to provide a medical form?
Every Scout and Adult staying in camp must have a BSA Health and Medical Record filled out completely – parts A and B only, no doctor signature is required. This form must be brought to camp (DO NOT mail it to camp). The medical form no longer allows attaching another physical exam (ie: sports physical) to the BSA medical form. There are absolutely no exceptions to this requirement. These forms must be retained by camp, so keep a copy at home for use at other activities. We provide first aid coverage at this event and parents are responsible for administering medications to their camper.
Does my Cub Scout need to bring a uniform?
It is strongly suggested that the Official Scout Shirt be worn by all Cub Scouts and adults during the evening meal, but is not mandatory.
How is the program structured?
Each camper selects the activities they want to participate in. To avoid conflicts please stick to your schedule. If you were blocked out of an activity based on class size, you can stop by the activity to be added, in the event their is a no show.
Is there a trading post?
Camp Resolute maintains a well-stocked camp store to serve everyone who is staying, or just visiting, in camp. Items include Scout literature, camp T-shirts, patches, mugs, cold drinks, snacks, and toiletries
What are the accommodations like?
In June we provide 9′ x 9′ canvas wall tents on a wooden platform, each with 2 cots and mattresses. Families are welcome to provide their own tent as well. On October, families will need to bring their own tent and bedding.
What happens if a family member has a food allergy?
We offer vegetarian options regularly, and if we know ahead of time we can be prepared to offer gluten free. We run a nut free dining hall! You are also welcome to bring items with you that would help/supplement any dietary limitation. These can be stored in our kitchen.
