6 RESERVATION PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES Camp Crooked Creek is on the 1000-acre Harry S. Frazier, Jr. Scout Reservation and is located in Clermont, Kentucky. The property consists of rolling hills covered with a hardwood forest of oak, hickory and beech. It is not unusual to see deer grazing outside your tent. Turkey can be seen just a little deeper in the woods. Geese and ducks are found on the 70-acre John Barr Lake stocked with bass, bream and catfish. There always seems to be enough breeze on the lake for sailing. Other aquatic activities include motor boating, canoeing, kayaking, rowing and swimming. Shooting sports are also a camp highlight. Programs featuring shotguns,.22 rifles, and archery are all available at Camp Crooked Creek. The Dan Boone (First-Year Camper) Program, located at Ribar s Dan Boone Hill overlooking the lake, gives new Scouts a big start toward achieving their First Class Rank in just one year.

8 KEYS TO SUCCESS AT CAMP CROOKED CREEK 1. Have the adult leader from the troop assigned to collect the fees and to stay on schedule with payments due. 2. Schedule a camp promotion presentation to share details about camp with the Scouts and their families. 3. Have someone (preferably the SM & SPL) from the Troop attend the 12-Day-Out leaders meeting, this is very critical. A call-in option will be available if no one is able to attend. 4. Sessions for most merit badges will be available in both the morning and the afternoon to help provide more opportunities for Scouts. 5. Assign Scouts to different merit badge sessions. Example: If 12 Scouts want to take the First Aid merit badge, try to put 3 in each of the 4 scheduled sessions. Merit badges sessions will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Finalized merit badge schedules should be posted online by your unit no later than Friday, May 22. CAMPERSHIPS Identify boys who may need financial assistance for their summer camp experience and try to help them find some way to earn money. Excellent sources of funds for Scouts needing assistance are the annual Popcorn sale and Camp Card sale. Unit fundraisers can also be used to earn funds for summer camp use. A limited number of camperships are available for Lincoln Heritage Council Scouts only. Complete a campership application (available at or at the Scout Office) for each boy who needs assistance and return them to the Scout Service Center. Camperships are limited to those Scouts whose families financial situation qualifies for assistance. Campership applications are due with Early Bird, however, those who apply early are more likely to receive assistance as camperships are first-come, first served. The campership application does not take the place of the early bird payment, but should accompany the payment. Payment must be made to qualify for the early bird discount. *Note: Camperships will not be credited toward total paid until survey is returned. All surveys are to be submitted no later than Monday, May 25, Visit for camp forms and additional information.

Units may be asked to share a site with one or more troops depending on the size of the troop and the maximum number of campers allowed in the site. Likewise, units that bring more Scouts than the maximum number of campers allowed in a site may also be moved to a different campsite. Staff will work to accommodate each unit as much as possible. The Camp Director reserves the right to move a troop to a different campsite. The Summer Camp Contact listed for the Troop will be notified as soon as possible of any changes. Camp is filling up fast! Be sure to select a week then call the Council office at to request your reservation. Units attending camp in 2015 will be given first choice in making site reservations for For your convenience, we will accept deposits for 2016 while you are at camp.

CAMP PROMOTION NIGHT Contact the Sam Swope Scout Center at (502) to schedule a camp promotion presentation. The team will show the camp promotion video and present information on the Summer Camp program. The presentation should be done at a Court of Honor or other type of parents night for the troop as it is very important to have as many parents as possible at this meeting. The aim of the presentation is to make sure parents know the dates and costs of camp and are familiar with the need for current physicals and the required equipment and uniforms. If at all possible, you should also show the camp video during a meeting in which you have a Webelos den visitation. Out-of-council troops may request a camp-promotion video to use at a parents night program. Visit for camp forms and additional information. 9

24 DAN BOONE HILL- FIRST YEAR CAMPER PROGRAM We take pride in the fact that we have one of the nation s foremost firstyear camper programs. You and your Scouts will find that our facilities are top of the line and the staff on Dan Boone Hill are some of the most informed and knowledgeable that you will find anywhere. The Dan Boone Program is divided into two separate sessions. This allows your Scouts time to pursue additional opportunities at camp. 1) Morning session: 8:20AM 11:30AM 2) Afternoon session: 1:20PM 4:30PM Scouts should plan to attend one session or the other, not both. Participants are grouped based on rank and skill level. It is impossible to come to camp and, in a week, complete all of the requirements for First Class, Second Class, and Tenderfoot. The Dan Boone Staff will do everything in their power to help each Scout become proficient in as many areas as possible. How much each Scout completes is up to him and his patrol. All Scouts in the Dan Boone program are welcome to participate in the 5 mile hike and the flag retirement ceremony. While this is a first year camper program, we do encourage Scouts that are 13 and older to take Merit Badge Sessions. If an older first year camper wants to take the Dan Boone program, please talk to the Program Director. Scoutmasters should review requirements taught on Dan Boone Hill with Scouts after completion.
