General Information

Our Camps offer some of the finest outdoor experiences a Scout, his friends, and parents can enjoy anywhere, and here’s why:

Staff

Each of our Camping programs is administered by a Nationally Certified Camp Director and all key staff are trained in their areas of responsibility. Our staff members are carefully selected and reflect the principles of Scouting.

Facilities

All of our camps feature facilities in natural surroundings. Our Adventure Day Camp, Adventure Overnight and Taste of Scouting are held at locations that are inspected for safety, cleanliness, and program suitability.

Program

It’s easy to see the benefits of the programs we offer. Of course, fun is the top priority of every camper. But, while delivering the fun, we manage to add in equal amounts of citizenship, fitness, self-esteem, and character development that are the hallmarks of Scouting.

Family Involvement

Taste of Scouting Family camping is an outdoor experience, other than resident camping, that involves Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, or Venturing program elements in overnight settings with two or more family members, including at least one BSA member of that family. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children, and Youth Protection policies apply.

Financial Aid

A limited number of partial Camperships will be available to families who demonstrate a need. A confidential campership Application is available on the “Forms” Tab. Please send in your Campership Application along with your Camp Registration form. Camperships are not typically granted in amounts greater than 50% of the camp fee.

Insurance

Knox Trail Council maintains an insurance policy which covers all Scouts while at camp. This policy is an excess policy, which means that benefits are paid in excess of the benefits paid by any other insurance which the individual or group may have. To summarize, if your Scout is injured at camp, your personal insurance becomes primary for coverage with the camp insurance picking up any remaining amount. If no other insurance is available, the council’s policy will cover expenses.

Accreditation

Each of our camps undergoes one or more safety inspections prior to and during operation. Our camp was certified as Nationally Accredited by the BSA during the 2010 summer camp season.

Cancellation of Programs

The Knox Trail Council reserves the right to cancel any program. Youth having made reservations for any cancelled program will be given the opportunity to make reservations for any other program being offered.

Refund Policy

This event is rain or shine and we are unable to offer refunds.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The programs of the Knox Trail Council are available to all boys without regard to race, color, religion, disability, or national origin. Any youth member may attend any age appropriate camp conducted within the council.

Confirmation Packets

The email receipt you receive after you complete your registration is the only confirmation you will receive. No further email confirmations will be sent. You will receive an email approximately 1 week prior to the event with final instructions.

Health Forms

A BSA Health and Medical Record filled out completely (parts A and B)  must be brought to camp on the first day (DO NOT mail it to camp). The medical form no longer allows attaching another physical exam (ie: sports physical) to the BSA medical form. The physician’s signature must be on the BSA form to be valid. There are absolutely no exceptions to this requirement. Taste of Scouting Health Form to download a copy of the medical form. Please send a copy. Do not send the original we cannot return them.

Health Services
