4 1 Camp General Information Welcome to Buck Hollow Scout Ranch The Webelos Wilderness Adventure is situated on the Buck Hollow property owned by the LDS Church and leased to the Utah National Parks Council for Scout Program use. This property hosts many activities including Adventure Park, Webelos Wilderness, Timberline NYLT and Wood Badge to name a few. This Camp is one of the few wilderness camps left nationally. The Buck Hollow Property allows Scouts a real hands on opportunity for conservation, service and experience in the outdoors at its finest. As a leader, there are several areas that will be of great importance but nothing is more important than safety; safety for the Webelos Scouts, safety for the leaders, and safety for the camp staff. Camp is designed to be fun, build positive experiences, promote physical activity and offer an opportunity for boys to interact with other Webelos Scouts and adults. There will be camp staff present; however, your attentiveness and involvement at camp are vital for a successful Day Camp experience. To make this camp possible, it takes the help of over 16 youth staff and over 6 adult staff members. Thanks for wanting to be a part of this exciting challenge! Welcome!! Camp Dates for 2017 June: 5-7, 12-14, 19-21, July: 10-12, Camp Fees & Reservations Webelos: $27 Adults: $10 Payment in full is due at reservation.

6 2 Camp Policies & Services Scout leaders are responsible for the conduct of their boys. Conflicts between campers from different dens should be resolved by the adult leaders of the units involved, with the assistance of camp management if necessary. If conflicts between staff and campers arise they will be resolved by camp management and unit leaders. The Uniform at Camp We encourage Scouts and their leaders to wear the official BSA uniform. We also invite Scouts and leaders to bring additional activity shirts, if needed, that can either be purchased at the camp s Trading Post store or brought from home. A uniform sets Scouts apart and shows they represent and adhere to the ideals and values of Scouting. When a uniform is worn properly and with respect, a Scout will elevate his conduct to meet those expectations. Official Field Uniform: A complete field uniform is defined as official BSA shirt, pants or shorts, belt and socks. The neckerchief and cap are optional. It is appropriate to wear the uniform during check-in and to the flag ceremony activity shirts may be worn throughout the rest of the day if desired. Activity Uniform: The activity uniform consists of a Pack/Den, camp, council, or BSA t-shirt with official pants, shorts, socks and belt. (This uniform should be worn during camp activities/classes, morning flag ceremonies and personal time at camp. Shoes: Campers should bring the proper footwear for each activity. Open-toed shoes are not advised at camp. Meals and Menus Lunch is the Den s responsibility. Use your best judgment to meet your individual needs. Cold storage food containers are recommended.

7 Camp Policies & Services Cont. Trading Post The camp Trading Post provides a wide assortment of souvenir, program, and comfort items for sale. Handicraft Kits, program supplies, patches, T-shirts, hats, candy, soft drinks, sundries, and many other items are available. $15 should be sufficient to meet the needs of most Scouts. The Trading Post conveniently accepts credit and debit cards and cash and checks. The open times will be posted at the Trading Post. Lost and Found Policy: We will keep found items at the trading post during camp, they will then be taken to the Orem Scout Office after camp ends. They will be held for several weeks. The found items will be discarded or donated. Porta Potties and Water Buffalos There are portable latrines located throughout the camp. Please help keep portable latrines free from garbage, sticks and other debris. These items cause serious problems in the pumping process. If you notice a portable latrine is out of toilet paper, please inform a member of camp staff and we will gladly restock it. Please keep in mind that human waste can be damaging to the local environment and underground water supplies. Please only use the latrines provided. Scouts that abuse any of the above facilities by vandalism, tipping them over, wasting supplies, or running the water buffalos excessively will be turned over to their leaders for discipline. Potable water is located throughout the camp in water buffalos. Please use water sparingly as needed. The hoses should be put back in place and the water shut off when not in use. Please refrain from washing anything directly from the water buffalo. Bring water containers to fill. Litter Control Please help us to keep our camp clean.

Medical/First Aid Services First Aid at camp is just that... First Aid. Special arrangements for the treatment of more serious cases have been made with local facilities. All medical emergencies must be reported to the Medical Officer immediately. Emergency service is available 24- hours. The treatment of pre-existing or non-camp related illnesses or injuries should not be expected, and such cases may be referred to local health-care providers depending on the nature of the injury or illness. Many minor first aid needs can be met by the unit through the unit s first aid kit. Unit leaders should use common sense regarding what to treat within the unit and what to refer to the Medical Officer. Properly dispose of any items contaminated with blood or other body fluids. Any first aid that is done while at camp, regardless of how small, will need to be reported to the Medical Officer as soon as possible. Prescriptions in Camp The taking of prescription medication is the responsibility of the individual taking the medication and/or that individual's parent or guardian. BSA policy requires that all prescription drugs brought to camp (including those needing refrigeration) are to be locked up. An exception is made for a limited amount of medication to be carried by a camper for lifethreatening conditions, including bee-sting or heart medication and inhalers, or for a limited amount of medication approved for use in a first aid kit. Medical Emergency In the case of a medical emergency the camp Medical Officer will determine the type of treatment needed and if medical authorities need to be summoned. In addition to the camp Medical Officer, many staff members have been trained in first aid and CPR. Please report any injuries to the camp medical officer. If your troop or group has any medically trained adult personnel with you please consider notifying the camp medical officer of their presence and ask them to offer their assistance in case of an emergency. Emergency Procedures In the event of an emergency the Camp Management Team will take charge and execute the camp s emergency procedures. Lost Boy Plan Step One - Report lost boy to Camp Director. If not available, report to the Assistant Camp Director. Have complete head count of all boys. An air horn will be activated to alert stations to initiate a headcount. A camp staff member will report the

8 3 Medical & Emergency Procedures all accounted for or any problems to the camp director. NO STATION ROTATION WILL OCCUR UNTIL AN ALL CLEAR IS GIVEN. The all clear will be give through the station instructor. Please be aware that there will be periodic checks of the system. Step Two - Check out any leads as to boy s whereabouts. Expand search area (Organize staff and campers). Step Three - Inform Scout Executive, who will call the boy s parents. Inform local authorities. Natural Disaster In the event of a natural disaster, such as earthquake, wildfire, severe storms, etc., the camp s emergency alarm system will be sounded, camp will be assembled, and appropriate steps will be taken to protect all persons in camp. NOTE: Scout Leaders are required to complete the on -line BSA Weather Hazards training before camp. Lightning: If caught in the open during a thunder and lightning storm go inside the nearest shelter immediately! If no shelter is available, crouch down immediately in the lowest possible spot and roll up in a ball with feet on the ground. Do not lie down! If outdoors during a thunder and lightning storm, avoid water! Also avoid metal objects such as wires, fences, power tools, railroad tracks, etc. Unsafe places include: tents, golf carts, underneath single standing trees. Avoid hilltops and open spaces. Where possible, find shelter in a building or in a fully enclosed metal vehicle, such as a car, with the windows shut. Earthquakes: If an Earthquake Occurs: Get away from buildings, structures and the base of mountains Cover yourself (get under a table or other sturdy structure) Stay away from power lines spot and roll up in a ball with feet on the ground. Do not lie down! Fires: In the case of a fire that threatens the camp the camp management team will assemble the participants and the staff. At that point, based on where the fire is located, camp management will give further instructions. Animals If you observe a wild animal, leave it alone. The chances of it bothering you are minimal. If you are bitten or injured by an animal, see the medical officer immediately for treatment. Bears: Backcountry and Trail Precautions Don't surprise bears. If you're hiking, make your presence known. Make noise by talking loudly, singing, or wearing a bell. If you can, travel with a group. Groups are noisier and easier for bears to detect. Keep in mind that bears tend to be more active at dawn and dusk so plan your hikes accordingly. Stay on marked trails and obey the regulations of the area you're hiking/camping in. If you're hiking in bear country, keep an eye out for tracks, scat, digs, and trees that bears have rubbed. Leave your dog at home! Mountain Lions: If you come into close proximity to a mountain lion, slowly back away. Do not turn your back to the lion and do not lie down remain facing the lion and continue to stand upright. Open your jacket up to make yourself look larger. If the lion acts aggressively, grab a large stick, throw rocks, and speak loudly and firmly to the lion. Snakes: Snakes are common at camp. If you see a snake report it. If you leave them alone they will very probably leave you alone unless they feel threatened by you. If you are bitten, go to the first aid area at once and describe the snake to the best of your ability. Deer: Do not touch fawns or deer. If you are able to touch an adult deer then it may be sick or diseased so avoid coming in contact. Rabies: Rabies is a deadly disease that some animals are prone to contract, including raccoons and skunks. Avoid wild animals, especially if they are acting erratic, sick or aggressive. Biohazards When coming in contact with blood or other bodily fluid or feces, wash your skin that was exposed using hot water and soap. Then go to the camp medical officer to be checked. If just your clothes come in contact with the bodily fluid or feces carefully removed the clothing if you can do so without it coming in contact with any part of your body. Then wash your hands and the body part underneath the contaminated clothes with soap and water. If you have close exposure to someone who is coughing, sneezing or vomiting, report the incident to the medical officer. 8

10 5 Day Camp Program This section describes the activities, programs of this camp. Reading this section will help you better plan your camping experience, and determine early on what you want to participate in, and what your camping goals might be. Camp Advancement Policy Buck Hollow uses a learning by doing style of teaching. Rules for advancement do not change just because a boy is at camp, but camp does provide an ideal setting for the opportunities we offer. The classes will start at a specified time. Classes should be reserved for each Webelos Scout on the online registration process. Due the intense schedule, it is important that all scouts and leaders understand when the classes start and get their scouts there on time. It may not be possible to attend every class offered. Webelos Wilderness Program The National Boy Scouts of America has changed the Cub Scout and Webelos Programs in During the summer of 2015 was the transition period for Packs to transition into the new program. UNPC s Webelos Wilderness Adventure Camp is helping you by switching its program to match the new Adventures tracks for the Cub Scout and Webelos. Included below are the actual advancement requirements and/or skills we will be teaching for each Adventure Activity Badge. We have focused on many of the outdoor and camp-related advancement activities in order to be of greater help to Pack and Den Leaders. Please note that at this time BB Guns and Archery are no longer advancement activities, but are now part of the Cub Scouts Shooting Sports Awards Program. We will do our best to see that each Scout that participates reaches level 1 requirements for the award. Scout leaders should note that the Buck Hollow staff will be instructors only. The class activities are requirements that are meant to be passed off in a den meeting to an adult leader. As such, once boys have mastered a skill or completed a requirement, they will pass off that requirement to their Scout Leader while in the class or back at their den meetings. How many requirement get passed off at camp will be up to a Scout and his leaders. Please keep in mind that while we have prepared a set curriculum covering requirements for several of the activity badges, depending on the learning speed and behavior of the Scouts, we may not be able to cover every item listed in the below section. It is up to the Scout and his leader to complete the requirements for the activity badge.
