2 2013 BOY SCOUT Pistol Program Camp Loud Thunder is in the Quad Cities Area near Davenport, Iowa on the Mississippi River The 2013 Summer Camp season will be the second year of a very special pilot program coordinated by the Illowa Council on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America. First-time shooters and advanced marksmen will be challenged through an exciting array of target presentations. Was the 2012 inaugural program a success? Check out these results from last summer! What types of handguns are used? Ruger model 22/45,.22 caliber, semi-automatic handguns are used. How many shots do I get to take? In 2012, 600 youth and adults sent over 38,000 rounds of ammunition down range having fun at the pistol range. (That s an average of 63 shots per shooter!) Can I get a special patch? Yes, Camp Loud Thunder awarded their coveted First in the Nation patch to all youth and adults that participated (For FREE). Did it cost extra to shoot handguns? No. As a pilot program, Camp Loud Thunder is offering this program at no additional cost to their campers. (A special thanks to our many generous supporters). Are there other opportunities to participate in shooting sports at camp? You bet! The handgun program is ran in addition to our rifle, shotgun and archery ranges. Both the pistol and rifle ranges have lighting to allow evening programing until 9:00 pm! Is training required? Yes, all eligible Scouts and adults must attend an annual 30-minute presentation while in camp to be able to participate. Advanced classes offer the NRA FIRST Steps pistol training. Is it safe? Yes. Camp Loud Thunder utilizes adults that are BSA/NRA certified with supervision ratios that exceed recommendations. Safety is our number one concern! Will there be room for my Troop in 2013? We hope so! Camp attendance jumped 26% in 2012 and we will accept Troop reservations up to our capacity. Space is limited to ensure optimal merit badge class sizes, pool capacity and dining hall seating. Provisional troops are available for Lone Scouts. The ONLY camp in the Midwest approved for Boy Scouts to enjoy handgun marksmanship! For more information on eligibility, or to make a reservation for your Troop to attend Camp Loud Thunder, visit our website at: or call the program department at (563)

6 BEFORE YOU GET TO CAMP CAMPING SCHOLARSHIPS- CAMPERSHIPS Financial assistance may be available to Scouts who are in need. Funds are limited and granted to Illowa Scouts based on family situations and the Scoutmaster s recommendation. Camperships are provided to supplement the Scout s contribution and other assistance. Camperships are generally for Scouts attending camp for the first year. With planning and participation in the Popcorn Sale or Camp Card Sale, a Scout can build a savings for his next year at camp or high adventure activity. Camperships are limited to a maximum of one-half of the basic camp fee and may be less if campership demand is high. The Campership Application form is available in the resources section of this book and on the Council website. Applications must be completed, signed by the Unit Leader and received at the Council Service Center by April 1. PLEASE NOTE: The 2013 Campership Application format is the ONLY one that will be accepted for the 2013 Boy Scout Summer Camp session. All applications will be reviewed by the Council Camping Committee, and every consideration will be extended to those who exhibit genuine need. REFUND POLICY In general, camp fees are non-refundable. In the case of genuine hardships and/or emergencies (family move, immediate family death, serious illness, etc.) every effort is made to help where possible. The Unit Leader must request any refunds in writing citing full details, and including written statements from the Scout and/or his family where possible. Please do not submit family requests directly to the council without a Scoutmaster s recommendation/approval. This policy is to prevent duplicate requests being submitted. The initial $75 non-refundable deposit will not be refunded. Maximum refunds (monies in excess of the $75 initial payment) are available in the case of families leaving the area prior to camp, or in other cases of genuine hardship on a case-by-case basis. Paperwork must be submitted prior to 2 weeks before the scheduled camp session. Other refund requests received in writing prior to the Troop s departure from camp may receive up to one-half of any funds received in excess of the $75 initial payment. Refunds requests received after a Troop s departure from camp will not be granted. All refunds will be made in September to Troops only, following Camping Committee Review. Scouts sent home for disciplinary reasons forfeit all refunds. 6

7 BEFORE YOU GET TO CAMP BSA ANNUAL HEALTH AND MEDICAL RECORD All Scout and Adults MUST provide a current Annual Health and Medical Record form Parts A, B, & C upon arrival at Camp. Please note Part C requires a physician s signature. Copies of the BSA Medical form can be printed from our website under Forms, National Forms. All medical forms are to be given to the Troop medical person who will present them at camp check in. It is suggested that the Troop makes copies to bring to camp. Please do NOT mail them to the Illowa Council Service Center. This form is valid for 12 calendar months from date of exam and must be current while in camp. STANDARD OF CARE The camp provides a trained first aid attendant on call 24 hours a day and arrangements have been made with local hospitals and ambulance services. BSA policy requires that all injuries receive full medical attention in a timely manner. Situations requiring treatment beyond simple first aid will be sent to a hospital, and ultimately referred to the family physician. Every effort will be made to contact parents prior to sending an injured or seriously ill patient to a hospital. However, in urgent situations the first aid attendant will decide the appropriate treatment. GENERAL GUIDELINES Except in emergencies, an adult from the Troop must accompany Scouts under 18 to the Health Lodge for treatment. ALL injuries must be reported to the camp first aid attendant to ensure proper treatment and recording. Incident Reports must be completed on any serious injury or illness. Troop leadership must assist the first aid attendant with these reports as necessary. Medical guidelines for adults: Adults with serious health problems should obtain clearance for camp activities from their personal physician. Temperatures can be hot and humid and you may exert yourself considerably more at camp than normal. Special arrangements normally can be made for Scouts or Scouters with special needs. Please call the Council Program Director at x 120 with your concerns before camp. MEDICATIONS Scouts and adults requiring regular medications must bring the medications to camp in their original packaging. Medications will be turned in to the health officer and made available to campers through the use of a locked box system at the Health Lodge. Twice a day (or as necessary) medications will routinely be made available to campers through the assistance of Unit Leaders, who will pick up and return the locked medications box to the Health Lodge. ACCIDENT INSURANCE & MEDICAL BILLS: BSA medical insurance is a secondary insurance coverage, or a primary coverage for those members without medical insurance. Should there be a need for insurance coverage, families should follow the following steps: Except when leaving camp for medical treatment with a parent, Scouts must be accompanied by a Unit Leader to a doctor or hospital. The leader should have the Scout s personal health record and insurance information. In the event of ambulance service, the leader should plan to follow the ambulance to the treatment facility. For further information on medical claims please call the Illowa Council Service Center at

8 BEFORE YOU GET TO CAMP CAMPER EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST Scouts will pack their own gear into their campsites. Make sure they don't bring more than they can carry.

Just let us know when you fill out the Campsite Analysis form at the May Leader s meeting. PLAN TO BE BUSY WITH FUN, OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES! The Illowa Council will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items. 8

9 AT CAMP CHECK-IN PROCEDURES In order to complete the check-in procedures in a timely manner, you should arrive between 1PM-4PM. Early arrivals will be asked to wait in the parking lot until 1PM to check in. Upon arrival at camp, you will be greeted by an assigned campsite guide, who will help you through the check-in process. The Primary Troop Leader should start at the Administration Building where they will: Show a copy of their Tour Plan if traveling from a Council other than Illowa. Present a copy of the Troop Roster. (Please find Roster form in the Resources Sections of this guide) Present complete and signed medical records to the Camp Health Officer. (There will not be a physician at camp, so persons with incomplete medical records will not be able to stay at camp) Pick up the Troop Packet which includes information for events/activities throughout the week. Turn in list of Scouts for OA Call-Out on Wednesday Evening (if applicable this can be done at the first leader s meeting as well. This is to ensure we have the correct Scouts on the master list for the Call-Out) PARKING & TRAILERS A parking lot is provided across from the Administration Building for all vehicles and trailers. For your safety and camp experience only camp service vehicles are permitted beyond the parking lot. Scouts and Leaders should come prepared to pack their own gear into their campsites. However, Loud Thunder does have two gators with small trailers that can assist in getting heavy gear to the campsite. SWIM CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURES The swim classification of individuals participating in a BSA activity is a key element in both Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat. Traditionally, the swim classification test has only been conducted at a long-term summer camp. However, testing may be done prior to camp, see guidelines below. All persons participating in BSA aquatics are classified according to their swimming ability. The Swimming Test demonstrates the minimum level of swimming ability for recreational and instructional activity in a confined body of water with a maximum 12-foot depth, and with shallow water footing or a pool or pier edge always within 25 feet of the swimmer. Swimmer s Test: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: side stroke, breast stroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting back stroke. The 100 yards must be swam continuously and include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating for about one minute. Beginner s Test: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, swim 25 feet on the surface, stop, turn sharply, resume swimming as before, and return to starting place. ADMINISTRATION OF A SWIM CLASSIFICATION TEST Preferred: Option A (at unit level): The swim classification test is done at a unit level in accordance with BSA procedures referenced above and should be conducted by one of the following Council-approved resource people: NCS Aquatics Instructor, Adult with Current Certification in BSA Swimming and Water Rescue Course, BSA Lifeguard, or Certified Lifeguard. When the unit goes to summer camp, each individual will be issued a buddy tag under the discretion of the Camp Aquatics Director. Illowa Council requires that the swim classification test be conducted within the current calendar year. The form is located at Camp Forms page. Option B (at camp): The swim classification test is completed the first day of camp by camp aquatics personnel. Note- At all times, the Aquatics Director shall reserve the authority to review or retest individuals or entire troops to ensure the standards of safety have been maintained. 9

10 AT CAMP FLAG CEREMONIES Flag raising in the morning and lowering in the evening is an important camp ceremony. Flag raising starts promptly at 7:50AM. Flag lowering in the evening, or Retreat, is a required formation for all campers. Retreat starts promptly at 5:50PM. All Troops should assemble on the Flag Plaza in Field Uniform ( Class A ). FOOD SERVICE Loud Thunder employs a commercial food service with experienced, trained cooks who prepare all of your meals. We serve cafeteria style with assigned seating. Troops are responsible for cleaning their tables and areas before leaving each meal. Campers with dietary restrictions may request substitutes by notifying the Camp Director or the Illowa Council Service Center in writing at least two weeks before coming to Camp. See Special Diet Request form in the Resources section of this manual. Meal tickets for adult leaders and visitors may be purchased at the Trading Post for $5 each. LOST AND FOUND Although the Illowa Council is not responsible for any Troop or personal items that may be lost, stolen, or damaged, a lost and found area is located at the Administration Building. Lost and Found items will be donated to a local charity on the last day of Summer Camp. ORDER OF THE ARROW The Order of the Arrow is Scouting s youth-run honor camping society, and Loud Thunder Scout Reservation is home to our own OA Lodge; Konepaka Ketiwa, Lodge #38. The Lodge holds two Conclaves, several annual activities and a number of workdays at the camp each year, donating countless hours of work to maintain and improve the camp. At Loud Thunder, cheerful service is more than just a phrase for our Lodge. The Lodge is in charge of the Call-Out ceremonies on Wednesday evenings, and any opportunities to complete the Ordeal ceremonies will be announced before camp. Troops who wish to have Scouts included in the Call-Out should submit names at the Sunday check-in or the Sunday Leader s Meeting. For the 2nd year: DINING HALL CEILING TILE PROJECT Camp Loud Thunder is looking for your Troop s help to add some color to our Camp Dining Hall. Each Troop that attends Boy Scout Resident Camp at LT this summer is invited to decorate one ceiling tile that will be displayed in the Dining Hall. Troops are given the artistic freedom to design their own custom ceiling tile. Additional information will be provided to Troop Leadership at the May Leader s Meeting. 10

11 AT CAMP SHOWERS, BATHROOMS & LATRINES Please follow these guidelines for EVERYONE S convenience: The field latrines in each campsite are the primary bathroom facility for all campers. Please use them and keep them clean. If females will be using your latrine, you must set a usage schedule. For limited adult use, the Men s & Women s bathrooms in the Dining Hall are kept open. The daily service patrol will help keep these clean. For limited male adult and youth use, the bathrooms and showers at the Camp Swimming Pool are kept open. The daily service patrol will help keep these clean. For female use, there are two shower rooms at the rear of the Health Lodge. Females need to change before entering the swimming pool. SPENDING MONEY/CAMP TRADING POST Scouts will desire some pocket money at camp. Materials for Merit Badges and special programs often require small sums-see the LT merit badge listings for specifics. Merit badge books themselves cost (color) $4.50 each. A cold treat is always welcome at the end of a hot day, and of course the Trading Post stocks an array of camp t-shirts, patches, and equipment, as well as ice cream, beverages, and sweets. PHONE CALLS / MAIL Phone lines to Loud Thunder are extremely limited, and we recommend you write rather than call. A Camp phone at the Administration Building is specifically designated for camper use, but it requires calling cards or collect calls. EMERGENCY CALLS TO CAMP ONLY, PLEASE Send your cards and letters to: Scout s Name & Troop Number Camp Loud Thunder th Street West Illinois City, IL

12 AT CAMP A SCOUT IS REVERENT Scouts of the World Brothers Together From a Drawing by Baden Powell CHAPEL A Scout is Reverent, and Loud Thunder has a beautiful outdoor Chapel for worship and meditation while at camp. It is open at all times to Scouts and leaders, and boys are encouraged to seek out its quiet, shady location for time alone to adjust to the experiences of the busy camp life. Non-denominational vespers services are held on TUESDAY EVENINGS at the Chapel and everyone is encouraged to attend. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND DUTY TO GOD The Boy Scout Oath says that a Boy Scout does his best to do his Duty to God, one of the guiding principles of Scouting. This program is designed to teach Scouts how to live their Duty to God in their lives. Through self-study and working with our Camp Chaplain they will learn how their faith can shape how they relate to family, friends and their Scout Unit. Each Scout who completes a study while at camp is eligible for a special award to make his commitment visible to others. CHAPLAIN AIDE Each Troop attending summer camp is asked to name a Chaplain Aide who will be invited to work with the Camp Chaplain to bring devotions to their units and to assist in worship at camp. Each Chaplain Aide will be recognized for their work. 12

13 AT CAMP UNIFORMS The official uniform of the Loud Thunder Scout Reservation is the Field Uniform of the BSA ( Class A ), and we ask that you wear it on appropriate occasions. These occasions include Flag Ceremonies, Morning and Evening Meals and Campfires. During the day and on most evenings, feel free to wear an Activity Uniform ( Class B ). This consists of a Scouting T-shirt, Scout Pants, Scout Belt, and closed-toed Shoes. All clothing should be in good taste and reflect the pride you have in Scouting VISITORS & FAMILY NIGHT Families are invited to visit camp on Wednesday night for the traditional Family Night, followed by the Order of the Arrow Call-Out ceremony. On that night the camp will be open to visitors beginning at 5PM and visitors are expected to leave camp by 10PM, or at the conclusion of the Call-Out ceremony. Parents are encouraged not to return to the campsites following the ceremony. Troop Leaders are responsible for informing the Camp Director of the Troop s evening meal plans for Wednesday so the correct number of meals will be available. Visitors wishing to join their Troop in the dining hall for a meal must purchase meal tickets at the Trading Post in advance. Troop Leaders may want to purchase these for visitors to avoid long Trading Post lines on Family Night. Other than on Family Nights, individuals who visit camp for less than two hours are considered VISITORS. Persons who stay with us more than two hours are considered CAMPERS. They MUST have a Medical Form and Health History on record in the Health Lodge and abide by all of the camp and health guidelines. All must check in and out at the Administration Building. For the safety of all our campers pets are not allowed in camp. Leaders should let all parents know this policy. VOLUNTEER ASSISTANCE Camps always need extra hands, and Loud Thunder is no exception. Leaders in camp will be called on to take a turn at helping with a wide variety of chores ranging from quality of life issues to program support. We know we can count on you.after all, A Scout is Helpful. Many beneficial projects are completed each year by skilled Scouters who donate their time and talent to enhance Loud Thunder. Your help is really appreciated! Contact the Camp Commissioner if you d like to volunteer. 13

14 AT CAMP THE CAMP LAW The principles of the Scout Oath and Law are the guiding principles of the Loud Thunder Scout Reservation. Within that context, the following are some general rules that apply to all campers and visitors for everyone s health and safety. 1. Tobacco, alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs are NOT allowed in any Scout Camp. 2. Fireworks are prohibited in camp. 3. Personal firearms are prohibited in camp. 4. Sheath knives are not allowed in camp. 5. No flames of any kind are allowed in tents. 6. Advise Scouts to leave valuables with leaders. Watches, spending money, and other valuable items should not be left in shower room or an unattended campsite. Unit Leaders should bring a footlocker or other lockable container to protect campers' valuables. 7. Troops that use their own tents are encouraged to comply with the National Camping Standard of 30 square feet of living space for each camper, and tents they use should meet or exceed canvas manufacturer CPAI-84 standards. 8. This camp will comply with sound ecological and conservation policies to the maximum extent possible. Troops should take measures to properly dispose of all trash and recycle aluminum cans. 9. An emergency drill will be conducted each week of camp. All Troops are required to participate. Specific instructions will be provided at the Leader s Meeting on Sunday Evening. 10. In cases of disciplinary action, Scouts asked to leave camp will be picked up at their parent s expense. Camp fees are forfeited when Scouts are asked to leave camp. 11. The Camp Director and/or Council Program Director will consult with Troop Leadership and/or parents concerning any disciplinary action at camp. 14

15 AT CAMP FIRST YEAR CAMPER PROGRAM Trailblazers More than ever, we feel the Trailblazer program is a great way to work on advancement to First Class and to get familiar with the Loud Thunder Scout Reservation. Our goal is to have Scouts complete ONLY those portions they need for advancement. In the morning, Scouts will work on Rank Advancement Requirements. At 2pm and 3pm, Scouts can choose from many Merit Badges. At 4pm Scouts who choose can participate in the Trailblazer session at the pool. Scouts will be working on the Aquatics Requirements the first few days, and then either Swimming Merit Badge or Swimming Lessons (depending on skill level) the rest of the week. HOW TO PARTICIPATE? Participating Scouts will receive a Trailblazer Card which lists rank requirements up to First Class as well as where and when in Camp these requirements will be taught and tested. All this will aid your Scout in knowing where to go, when to go and what they need to accomplish. Requirements completed with one of the staff members will be initialed on the Scout s Trailblazer Card, and later signed by Troop leadership if approved. PLEASE NOTE: Although there will be a Trailblazer Coordinator, the first year at camp is always a pivotal experience, and we hope that your Troop will assign an adult or youth leader who can support these newer Scouts in their advancement at camp. This is a special program and will run each morning M-F. (Trailblazer Achievement Card found in rear of this book and copies will be provided for your Scouts) LOUD THUNDER MERIT BADGE PROGRAM IN GENERAL: Some merit badges are very difficult to complete at camp with the time and resources available. Others, like basketry, may finish very early. Scouts may pick up additional badges at any time during the week by talking with the area staff. If joining an on-going merit badge, Scouts have the responsibility of asking the counselor s permission to join the class AND what work they might have to accomplish to catch up with the other Scouts. The Merit Badge Schedule is Monday- Thursday. Scouts will have time Friday morning to complete any unfinished Merit Badges, or do a make-up if a class was cancelled due to weather. To allow for this, there is no planned Friday morning program. A leader may want to bring something for Scouts who have completed all their Merit Badges to work on or consider doing a unit Service Project. REGISTRATION: Merit Badge Schedule Request Forms will be available at in March. Each Troop is encouraged to complete this form and submit it on or before the May Leader s Meeting. The Camp Program Director will process the schedules and communicate with the Unit Leader prior to camp. BLUE CARDS: The Troop will be notified of their Merit Badge Schedule at least two weeks prior to their arrival at camp. Scouts should come prepared with Blue Cards filled out for each Merit Badge they are taking. All Scouts should bring their Blue Cards with them to their first class and submit them to their Merit Badge Counselor. SHOOTING SPORTS: Loud Thunder offers a full range of shooting Sports activities for skill and just for fun. These include.22 Cal Rifle, Shotgun, Archery, and BACK FOR A 2ND YEAR-PISTOLS. Due to the nature of these activities, participating youth should be more mature, able to concentrate on an activity, and be sufficiently coordinated to master the required skills. Shooting Sports merit badge participation is limited to those 13 and older. Exceptions to this rule are at the discretion of the Shooting Sports Director. There are extra fees for most of the shooting sports activities - See LT Merit Badge Guide. PISTOL PROGRAM: Loud Thunder s Pistol range is located in Lower Camp. Scouts should be a least 13 years old or attending their 3rd (or more) year of Boy Scout Resident Camp to participate in the Pistol Shooting Program. Each 1.5 hour session can accommodate 6 Scouts, for a total of 18 Scouts per week. Open Shoot times will also be available in the afternoons and some evenings for Adults and all Scouts (who meet the age requirement). As a pilot program, no additional fees will be charged for this program. WATERFRONT: Loud Thunder s waterfront is located on Lake George at the Lower Camp. For all Waterfront Merit Badges, individuals MUST meet the Swimmer test requirements. It is suggested that anyone who goes into Lake George bring a pair of old lace-up sneakers to wear in the water. 15

16 AT CAMP MERIT BADGE and DAY ACTIVITY SCHEDULE Camp Loud Thunder offers a variety of Merit Badges and Activities for your Scouts to partake in. We work very hard to ensure that your Scouts are properly schooled and supported in their goal of merit badge achievement. We also hope that Scouts will leave some free time in their schedules so they can explore camp and many of the program areas that Camp Loud Thunder has to offer. Please take time to review the following schedule and share this with your Scouts. Your Troop should have a leader designated to counsel Scouts on their schedules to allow for them to attain both individual and Troop goals. +Extended Time for Scouts to allow for additional opportunities to practice.

20 AT CAMP OLDER SCOUT ACTIVITIES Back by Popular Demand MICRO TREK ADVENTURE PROGRAM Does your Troop have older Scouts (at least 14, but strong suggestion for 15+) that want to go to summer camp but are looking for a different type of adventure? The NEW Micro Trek Program is perfect for your older Scouts who do not want to work on Merit Badges during the week. Each week, 10 Boy Scouts will embark on a journey that will put their Scout Skills to the test. Micro Trek participants will explore parts of Loud Thunder that most Scouts never get the chance to see. They will use the methods of Cross Country Navigation to get around, cook some of their meals while on the trail, build shelters, learn advanced plant and nature identification, dive deep into the principles of Leave No Trace, practice backcountry first aid, do a Conservation service project, build a pioneering project, shoot pistols and much more. The best part is that each Trek group will choose their own adventure depending on their interests. Participants will still be able to take part in many of the traditional camp activities, such as the campfires, evening programs, OA Call-Out, and sleeping in their Troop campsite (most nights). To complete this adventure, Micro Trekkers will spend two overnight backcountry experiences putting all the skills they have learned that week to test. Scouts can sign up to be a part of the Micro Trek program during any of the four Boy Scout Resident Camping weeks- they don t need to sign up with their home Troop. You will find the registration form in the Resources Section of this guidebook. CHALLENGING OUTDOOR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE (C.O.P.E.) Participants learn to overcome mental and physical obstacles both as a group and as individuals. They are taught through group dynamics how to formulate a safe workable approach, execute their plan, and then evaluate the results. C.O.P.E. goals are the development of leadership, trust, communication skills, self-esteem, teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making skills and FUN. Participants will experience initiative games, low-course events, and high-course activities including the caving ladder, balance beam, monkey bridge and the thrilling zip-line. Each week 20 Participants (Scouts ages 13+ and Adult Leaders) can sign up for the C.O.P.E. program to be held Monday through Thursday. Priority is given first to Scouts by their age, then to adults at random selection. There is one full afternoon class offered. To maximize the number of adults and youth exposed to our high ropes course, there is no additional fee to participate in this program. CLIMBING The CLIMBING program is for those interested in earning the Climbing Merit Badge and thus learning the skills of climbing, rappelling, and belaying in a safe and fun way. National Scouting standards and requirements are taught for unit climbing and rappelling The class will be offered in two sessions during the morning program and includes the bouldering wall and 30 climbing tower. Class size is limited to 10 Scouts per session. There is no additional fee to participate in this program. The class will take a field trip to the Mississippi Palisades on Fridays to complete the Climbing Merit Badge Requirements. Leaders will be asked to assist with driving. Adults may be certified in Climb On Safely and may assist (at the discretion of the Cope Director) if working on their certification as Climbing Instructors. Full Climbing Instructor training is offered by the Illowa Council C.O.P.E and Climbing Committee in the Fall and Spring ( 20

21 AT CAMP ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES FOR ALL SCOUTS TROOP CANOE OUTING or OVERNIGHT Your Troop can arrange for a box lunch or dinner, check out some canoes and spend the afternoon or evening on Lake George. Stop where you want for lunch/dinner, explore what you want, and have some fun down time. Prove your skills to the Waterfront Director, and you re off on your Troop outing. A minimum of two Adult Leaders will be required, and BSA water safety rules will be enforced. Overnights are possible with prior arrangements. TROOP MOUNTAIN BIKE OUTING Sign your Troop or Patrol up for a tour around the reservation on the camp s mountain bikes. There are several trails available, and you can choose from a quick fun ride, an afternoon or evening with a box lunch, or even an overnight. There are 12 mountain bikes available, many with detachable panniers (saddle bags for bikes). A minimum of two Adult Leaders will be required. GEOCACHING at LOUD THUNDER If you ve ever been geocaching, you ll know what fun it is. Scouts and Adult Leaders can sign out a hand-held Global Positioning System (GPS) device, fire it up, and seek out as many of the Loud Thunder treasures as you have time for. The only rule is, you have to sign the book when you find it, take something from the treasure, and replace it with something of comparable value for the next group. Common items are Scouting patches, beads, coins, etc. Just don t put anything edible in the treasure chest- we want to keep the animals out and KEEP THE SECRET! CAMP SPORTS OPPORTUNITIES Sports are always an option at Loud Thunder. There are many opportunities to compete as a Troop in Volleyball and Soccer or to just play for fun! The Human Foosball is our newest game and is FUN for Scouts and Leaders alike. It is available anytime you get your friends together. Just check out the equipment at the Camp Office whenever you would like to play. Let the Camp Program Director know if you want to organize a game with another Troop or with the Camp Staff. MILE SWIM For many Scouts and Adult Leaders, swimming a mile is nothing to tread lightly about. Camp Loud Thunder encourages our campers to get wet and get swimming. Practice opportunities will be offered during the week, and on Friday the Aquatics staff will cheer on the brave campers that attempt to swim a mile! NEW GIANT CHESS!
