4 GENERAL INFORMATION / ADMINISTRATION
5 OPEN ADMISSION POLICY STATEMENT It is the policy of the Glacier s Edge Council, Boy Scouts of America, to admit all persons without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or handicap. There is no distinction in eligibility for, or in the manner of, providing services by this agency. All facilities of this agency are available regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or handicap. UNIT ORGANIZATION IN CAMP Each Unit must be under the direction of a competent adult leader 21 years of age or over, who is in residence at all times with the Unit. This individual, normally the Scoutmaster, is in charge of the Troop s program in camp. Assistant Unit Leaders, Assistant Scoutmaster, 18 years of age or over, should be in charge of a part of camp life assigned by the Unit Leader. It is suggested that they be placed in direct charge of the program. There must be at least 2 adult Leaders in camp at all times. NO EXCEPTIONS! Junior Assistant Scoutmasters are usually given specific responsibilities involving definite skills, such as instructor in camp crafts, ecology, or the directing of certain activities such as campfires and games. The Senior Patrol Leader, as the boy leader of the Troop, leads the Patrols in all of their Troop activities. The Patrol Leaders Council should meet to discuss the days schedule of duty and program. Each Patrol will then be responsible for its share of the over all activity and program. Be sure each Patrol brings a Patrol Flag and their Unit Flag.
6 PROVISIONAL CAMPING If a Scout is unable to attend camp with his Troop, or would like to attend camp for a second week, we will help him make arrangements to attend with another Troop from his area. Contact the Council Service Center for assistance. We want every registered Scout to have the opportunity to attend Summer Camp. THE NEW BOY IN CAMP Care should be taken for the new camper. Too many times his first experience is his last because of the way in which he was treated by his Leaders and fellow campers. The Unit Leader should take great care to make sure that the new boy has a positive experience at camp and will want to continue in Scouting and return to camp. It is the Unit Leader s duty to see that each new camper has a healthy, happy, and constructive time at camp. Homesick cases should be brought to the attention of the Camp Commissioner and/or the Camp Chaplain. Hazing or initiation of Scouts in any form WILL NOT BE TOLERATED and we have a zero tolerance for such actions. A boy carries out suggestions more wholeheartedly when he understands their aim. - Baden Powell CAMP ADDRESS & EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBERS Camp Indian Trails is located 7 miles North of Janesville, off Hwy. 14 on North River Road.

SHEATH KNIVES & RADIOS In the best interest of safety, no sheath knives are to be carried in camp. This policy includes all campers Adult Leaders and youth alike.

14 CAMP INDIAN TRAILS BOY SCOUT PROGRAM The purpose of Summer Camp is to encourage learning and promote advancement while having fun in the out-of-doors. However, to have a well-rounded, enjoyable week at camp, we very strongly suggest that you allow your boys to attempt only three (3) Merit Badges. Scoutmaster discretion is advised for more than three Merit Badges. Another main purpose of Summer Camp is to help your Troop and Patrols work more effectively. In order to achieve this goal, the boys need time to work together. If they are burdened by too many Merit Badges, they will not have time to develop these other valuable skills. HELP YOUR SCOUTS HAVE A WELL-ROUNDED CAMPING EXPERIENCE! POSSIBLE PROGRAM CHOICES The morning is mostly reserved for Merit Badges but not only for Merit Badges it s for your Troop s Program. Siesta period follows lunch and ends at 2:00 PM. This time is to be used for rest, a Patrol or Troop Meeting or cleaning duties can be done at this time. This time may also be used for leader meetings and other special camp meetings. This is an excellent time for the daily Patrol Leaders Council meeting. Program areas are closed and Scouts should not be in them at this time. This time can include recreational time or Troop activities (canoe trip, camp improvement project, Troop hike, etc.) The evening, from 7:00-8:30 PM, is a good time for a camp-wide competition or informal Troop or inter- Troop activities. Though there are camp-wide programs scheduled for each evening, these are only options for your Troop and Patrols to choose from when planning your week. MERIT BADGE SIGN-UP This Summer we will be registering Scouts for Merit Badges they wish to take by computer. Each Scout must fill out the enclosed Summer Camp Merit Badge Sign-up sheet completely and turn it in to the Troop Leader. The Troop Leader must submit all forms to the Glacier s Edge Council Service Center NO LATER THAN 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION AT CAMP. We will then enter the information into the computer and return the Scouts schedules to you. NO FORMS ACCEPTED AFTER THE TWO WEEK CUT OFF! Any Scout not having their schedule in by the deadline will have to do their Merit Badge sign-up the Sunday night of their camp week by turning in the blue cards to the camp counselors. All scheduled times are in the Schedule Section. MERIT BADGES All Merit Badges require some advance preparation some as much as ten or more months The following pages list prerequisites and suggested requirements. Prerequisites must be done before attending camp if you want to complete the Merit Badge at camp. Suggested will help free up some extra time at camp. Scoutmasters should counsel each Scout regarding his Merit Badge plans. This will help him achieve the most he can during his week at camp. Your Scouts must bring their Merit Badge Books with them to each session of the Merit Badge. Make sure your Troop Library is up to date and has current Merit Badge Books. Some Scouts may share books, but other Merit Badges; I.e., First Aid, require extensive individual study of the book. The cost of a Merit Badge Book is about $3.25.
15 SCOUT SKILLS When a new Scout comes to camp there are many skills that he must learn before trying to earn Merit Badges. How can a Scout complete Pioneering Merit Badge if he can t tie knots? The Scout Skills program teaches first year Scouts the skills required up through his First Class Rank. Knots & Lashings, First Aid, Nature, and Orienteering are the focal points of this program. The Scout Skills Program has been very successful in helping the first year campers leave camp having accomplished something. The Council Camping Committee has noted that many campers who sign up for a number of Merit Badges at camp end up not completing any of them and, in turn, don t want to come back a second year. This program is designed specifically to take the place of these Merit Badges. This year we will be holding two sessions of the Scout Skills Program. Session 1 will be from 9:00-11:50 am and Session II will be from 2:00-5:00 pm daily. The same material will be covered during each session. There will be a limit of 25 Scouts per session and will be on a first sign-up basis. This will not only make the Scout Skills Program more manageable, but also the afternoon Merit Badge Sessions. Please see S-5 in Schedules for the daily program being offered.
16 SHOOTING SPORTS The purpose of this department is to expose each Scout to the skills, fun and safety of using firearms for recreation. RIFLE RANGE - The Rifle Range and Shotgun Range is operated under N.R.A. and B.S.A. provisions and certified instructors. Firearms and ammunition will be furnished at minimal cost to the Scouts. Tickets will be sold at the Trading Post for $0.35. This cost covers targets, cleaning and upkeep of rifles. Please keep in mind that the costs add up fast, depending on the shooter s ability to get scoreable targets; ie, $20-$30 in some cases. Shotgun shells are $0.35 a shell. RIFLE/SHOTGUN SHOOTING MERIT BADGES - These are recommended for Scouts who are already proficient marksmen before coming to camp. Completion of the D.N.R. Hunting Safety Course is highly recommended ARCHERY RANGE - Each Scout will have the opportunity to receive safety and basic skill instruction for the use of the bow and arrow. The use of camp archery equipment will be free. Camp Indian Trails also offers an Action Archery Range at the Archery Range. This includes a trail with a number of life-size 3-D targets to test your skill. Open times will be announced during your stay at camp. You will need to bring $5 to buy an arrow making pen available at the Trading Post and is required for this merit badge. Open shooting is available to all the ranges at convenient periods of the day. Times will be posted. If it were possible, and it isn t, a dead person will swear the gun was not loaded. - National BSA Camp School SHOOTING SPORTS MERIT BADGE OFFERED SUGGESTED PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS REQUIREMENTS ARCHERY 1b RIFLE/SHOTGUN SHOOTING Hunter Safety Course To complete these Merit Badges, Scouts must be proficient marksmen and score appropriately on a number of targets. These are NOT recommended for first year campers!
17 ECOLOGY/CONSERVATION Where possible, the Ecology/Conservation Department Staff will provide assistance in helping the Troops develop their Nature Program on the following basis: THE ECOLOGY CENTER is full of interesting items of nature, some animal exhibits, and a reference library. TROOP NATURALIST - The Troop Naturalist Program is seen as a Troop responsibility. There should be one or two carefully chosen people in each Troop, either adults or Scouts, or a combination. If training is needed for the Blackhawk Honor nature requirements, the Troop Naturalist should attend a training provided by the camp staff at the Ecology Center. These meetings will last about fifty minutes and take place at 4:00pm. (Please see Blackhawk Honor Camper Award Requirements). MERIT BADGES - Aside from offering the abovementioned Troop Program opportunities, the Ecology Staff will provide a wide variety of nature-related Merit Badges throughout the day. Scouts applying for the badges should check with their adult leaders to secure information on precamp preparation. All Ecology Merit Badges are offered on a 3 or 4 day time frame (Monday through Thursday). It is very important that a Scout come prepared to the Merit Badge session on the FIRST DAY (Monday) with an 8 1/2 X 11 notebook, one or two pens, and THE MERIT BADGE BOOK. If a Scout in your Troop is taking Astronomy Merit Badge, we highly recommend that he does not take Camping or Wilderness Survival Merit Badges as this presents an irresolvable conflict (such as being up all day and night).

18 HANDICRAFT Pride and satisfaction of making something at camp is often achieved in the handicraft area. Handicraft badges are very popular at camp. The Handicraft Staff works hard to create new and exciting projects for the Scouts to work on. Craft strip projects, leather thong work and baskets are all possible at Camp Indian Trails. The cost varies in this area because some of the projects can be made using natural materials and others must be store-purchased supplies. Scouts should bring some money to purchase kits and supplies from the Trading Post. Adult leaders are always welcome to come and involve themselves in a project or help out in any way. Here are some suggested amounts of money for the Scouts to bring if he wishes to work on a project in the Handicraft area: Basketry - $ Woodcarving - $5.00 Indian Lore - $5.00 SCOUTMASTERS, TAKE NOTE: THIS IS ONE OF THOSE DEPARTMENTS IN WHICH NEW SCOUTS ALWAYS FIND SUCCESS!

24 Each Scout Troop can honor worthy members of their Unit by electing them to the Order of the Arrow. Membership in the Order is composed of those Scouts and Leaders who are outstanding campers and who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. When a Scout is chosen, it is a clear sign that he is held in the highest regard by his fellow campers. Arrowmen are reminded that they were inducted not so much for what you have done, but for what you are expected to do. Unit elections will not be held at Summer Camp this Summer. All O. A. Elections MUST BE HELD PRIOR TO JUNE 1st. Contact your chapter chief to arrange for elections. Takoda Lodge will hold Call Out Ceremonies each week during the Boy Scout Summer Camp Program. Scouts elected by their Unit are not going to know if they have been elected until this ceremony. All Order of the Arrow members are asked to wear their sashes whenever they are in Class A uniform. Ordeal candidates will be invited to an Ordeal on a weekend following camp. The Lodge Program is conducted by youth leadership with the guidance of adult advisors. The Lodge is under the supervision of the Council Camping Committee. The Order is founded on the principles of Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. The Order of the Arrow is also unique in that it is one of the few, if not the only, organization in which members are elected predominantly by nonmembers. However, any member of a Troop under the age of 21 may participate in election. Each Out-of-Council Troop that wishes to have Takoda Lodge call out their Scouts must bring written permission from their home lodge for us to do so.
25 THE BLACKHAWK CAMP HONOR The Glacier s Edge Council offers a unique honors program with its Summer Camp experience, incorporating traditions and lore of the Woodland Indian. This recognition will be highly prized. Its spirit surrounds our camp and its programs. The Blackhawk Camp Honor is not a required program. It is offered as part of the overall Summer Camp Program, to be utilized by the Scout if he so desires. The requirements have been structured to appeal to Scouts strictly on their own merits. It is something that should attract and interest the majority of Scouts and, at the same time, be consistent with current Scouting advancement in rank. Every Unit Leader should make sure that every member of the Unit understands the Camp honor requirements and is given the opportunity to participate. Early on Monday, Scouts begin the adventure of qualifying to sit in the Council Ring of the Honor Camper. Those who qualify, on Friday evening will complete this adventure. ALL BLACKHAWK HONOR REQUIREMENTS MUST BE COMPLETED BY 5:00 PM ON FRIDAY The Master Troop Record Sheet must be turned in to the Camp Director s Mailbox by 5:00 PM Friday. Only one years Honor may be earned each year. Only one attempt to qualify may be made each Summer. The Blackhawk Honor requirements were designed for boys. Adults may receive the Honor by attending camp for three (3) days and nights with their Unit. UNIT LEADERS PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT DIMINISH THE TRADITION IN THE EYES OF THOSE WHO JUSTLY OBSERVE IT BY MAKING IT AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO DO NOT EARN IT. REMEMBER, DISAPPOINTMENT IS OFTEN A BETTER TEACHER THAN SUCCESS EASILY COME BY.

27 SCOUTMASTER MERIT BADGE Scoutmasters now have a new opportunity while at camp to earn their own Merit Badge. This will be a new Merit Badge Program each year and will be adjusted by your Commissioners, depending on the needs of the camp. The Scoutmasters Merit Badge will be presented at the Friday night campfire and can be earned by any adult Scout Leader in camp for four (4) days or three (3) nights during your Troop Summer Camp week. Requirements will be handed out at the Monday morning Leader s Meeting ADULT LEADER RECOGNITIONS Back Patch Award is available for any adult who spends at least three (3) nights and four (4) days in camp with your Unit. One patch is free to the main camp leader and all others are $12.50 each. Your feathers will be handed out at the Friday closing campfire. COMMISSIONERS Camp Commissioners are here to give you personal help during your week in camp. This friendly staff is one that you should use many times. They are here to serve as liaisons between the Unit Leader and the staff; as well as between the Unit Leader and other Unit Leaders. In addition to performing daily visitations within the campsite, the Commissioner Staff is also available to provide immediate help in meeting specific and urgent problems. They also act as a resource to all staff members in dealing with daily problems. Look forward to them providing and guiding inter-unit and camp activities, as well as trying to build spirit & enthusiasm in the Units with which they work. Throughout your week in camp you should be in constant communication with your Camp Commissioner. Remember, their main task is to assist your Unit s organization while in camp, as well as refer you to the Camp Director for interpretation of Council Camp Policies. After Sunday check-in is completed, you can visit with the Commissioners to ask any questions regarding daily activities or for any clarification of the Camp program. You can also ask them for guidance in obtaining any supplies for which you may have a need. We want you to feel comfortable in your new home, but we also want you to join with us in practicing good conservation and good camping skills to preserve this land and facilities.

29 SERVICES BY CAMP CHAPLAIN TO SCOUTS & SCOUTERS The Camp Chaplain is responsible for the chapel area, public prayer, worship service and counseling. Worship services will be conducted on Sunday and Wednesday evenings at the Camp Chapel. In addition, the Camp Chaplain will: * Counsel boys and men and help handle behavior problems and homesickness, as he is requested. * Promote the religious emblems program of all denominations and work with the Scout Chaplain s Aides in each Troop. * Offer a liaison between the camper and his spiritual leader concerning the Scout Religious Emblems program as requested. * Visit the sick at the Camp Health Center, assist with emergencies and personal problems, assist in communications between parents/guardians and camp relating to accidents, deaths, etc. * Visit Units in camp and help maintain high moral standards in camp. * Arrange for Grace at all meals. The Camp Chaplain will instill in Scouts and Scout Leaders the need and joy of worship through the activities listed above, as well as through other opportunities that present themselves. The Camp Chaplain will help counsel Scouts who, as young men, are making some of the most critical decisions of their lives. Whenever the spark of a religious commitment is kindled in the life of a boy, there is the opportunity to bring it to a flame of commitment to God. No Scout or Scout Leader, including the Camp Chaplain, will be required to say or do anything that is against his conscience according to a persons s faith. Any activity (such as Grace or thought-ofthe-day) done by the Chaplain in a full mandatory gathering of camp will not assume or demand any public responder. Everyone, however, will be required to be reverent, as a Scout is reverent. Nonetheless, the Camp Chaplain is a Chaplain, and not a psychiatrist or moralist. His public and private words and actions should exhibit to all an integrity of personal faith in God. CHAPLAIN AIDE WORKSHOP The Chaplain Aide Workshop is for any who shows an interest or is elected by his Troop. You may have more than one Chaplain Aide within your Troop. All Chaplain Aides will take part in the Wednesday evening worship service at the Chapel at 7:00pm as assigned by the Camp Chaplain. The exception to this is if there is a conflict of conscience. Chaplain Aides may lead mealtime Grace under the supervision of the Camp Chaplain.
