Letter from Camp Director January 1, 2014 Dear Scout Leader and Parents, Camp Alexander is embarking on its 68 th year in operation and will be serving over 3,400 campers this coming summer. Your scout will be help celebrate our 68 th Anniversary and we are happy to serve your youth just as we have since opening in 1946! As always the camp is here for your Pack as a resource for your program. We view camp as a support for your unit program to use the unit method and ideals of Scouting. Our staff desire to provide an avenue for challenging outdoor skills and to build teamwork amongst your troop. With Pike National Forest as our backyard the camp serves as a base for your unit to fully explore what Colorado has to offer. The camp is located in the Colorado Rocky Mountains at 8200ft surrounded by 11 Mile Canyon, South Platte River and the Pike National Forest. Your campsite may be located on top of Cardiac Hill or in Rankin s Gulch; all sites will enjoy the natural hills and rock terrain of the canyon. To complement the natural beauty of Colorado we will once again have a talented staff for you comprised of Scouters from different states and countries. Building on last year s theme centered program we are planning an exciting Indiana Jones and the Scout Crusade adventure for your youth. We again continue to work on achievements and 3

4 belt loops for advancement. I hope you enjoy the talented program our staff will provide for your youth!

6 MISSION Camp Alexander will provide a unique and steadily expanding Colorado Mountain-Top Experience Emphasizing life skills and instilling Scouting values in Scouts, volunteers, and others throughout the Pikes Peak region and surrounding communities. PIKE NATIONAL FOREST STATEMENT Boy Scouts of America is an equal opportunity service provider. Boy Scouts of America operates under special permit by the USDA Forest Service. For the latest information about Camp Alexander, please visit our Facebook page: Camp Alexander is located in the beautiful Eleven Mile Canyon in the Pike National Forest approximately 45 miles west of Colorado Springs, and two miles south of Lake George, in Park County, Colorado. Camp Alexander is between 8200 and 8600 feet elevation. The camp area consists of hills, low mountains, and valleys covered by a mix of Ponderosa pine forests, high-altitude grasslands, and wetland vegetation along the lake and stream. There is abundant wildlife including black bears, raccoons, skunks, rabbits, squirrels, deer, elk, coyotes, snakes, and bald eagles. We firmly believe that summer camp is an opportunity to do more than earn belt loops or pins. It is also a time for a boy to learn more about himself, develop his leadership skills, build character, and enjoy the mountain environment.

7 Your Scouts will have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of programs ranging from aquatics to shooting sports, and nature. Your experience should also include hiking in the beautiful Eleven Mile Canyon that surrounds Camp Alexander so your boys may experience the beauty of our Pike National Forest. It is the goal of our Camp staff to make sure that each Scout that attends Camp Alexander this year has a great camping experience and is able to accomplish all of his set goals and still have time to have fun and enjoy the mountains of Colorado. It is the very nature of the Scouting program that it takes place outdoors What is Scout Resident Camp? Cub Scout or Webelos Resident Camp at Camp Alexander is a camping adventure in the Rocky Mountains. We offer many different opportunities for Scouts to learn new skills and to experience life in the great outdoors. Scouts have a three-day two-night camp experience. We will be offering these events: Webelos Ultimate Indiana Jones Resident Camp July 27-29, 2014 or July 29-31, 2014 Indiana Jones and the Cub Scout Crusade August 1-3, 2014 Who can attend camp? Any registered Cub Scout or Webelos Scout, parents, and Leaders. This program is not for siblings who are not in the scouting program. OK, that s a good start. But why should I encourage my son to attend? 7

8 Camping is an integral part of Cub Scouting, and by attending Resident Camp, you help your son become a well-rounded Scout by exposing him to numerous activities that he may not have had the opportunity to explore before. Plus, as a Boy Scout, he will be camping and attending camp with his troop, and this adventure will help him make the transition easier. But he s only 8 years old and he s never been camping before. Attending Resident Camp is an excellent way to introduce him to the great outdoors with his friends and in a setting designed to help him want to learn and experience new activities. As a Boy Scout, he will be camping at week long camps and by attending resident camp as a Cub, he ll be prepared and know what to expect. What is the program like? A normal 3 day, two night program looks like: Day 1 Lunch Check In / Setup Camp Evening Campfire Day 2 Breakfast Program Areas Dinner Program Areas/ Special Activity Day 3 Breakfast Program Areas Close camp Program Areas Campfire I just wanted to let you know how much my son and I enjoyed Webelos resident camp this weekend. We've been to Camp A several times and it is always a good time. When I asked my son what his favorite part of camp was this time, he said it was the Bikeathalon. I think that was a really good addition. I hope you will be including bicycles at future camps. My younger son and I will be up to Camp A in a few weeks and he is hoping he can take his bike too. Thanks for the great camp, Mike Bass, CubMaster, Pack 238 What ages can attend camp? All registered Cub Scouts who are Wolves, Bears, or Webelos in the fall and their leaders and den chiefs are all welcome at Camp Alexander Resident Camp. Confused on the ranks? Basically, if your son is a Tiger before the event, he will be a Wolf this summer and he can go to camp in the fall. If he is a second year Webelos now, he will be going to camp with the Boy Scout Troop he joins. If you are still uncertain if your son can attend, please give us a call and we will clarify it for you. How much does it cost? 8

You can use Lake George city as a reference point and then follow the directions below. 10

11 Directions to Camp Alexander from Colorado Springs, CO Take Highway 24 west to the town of Lake George. Entering the town of Lake George, take the first left onto County Road 96. (If you cross the river, you have gone too far) Follow County Road 96 (about 1 mile) to the 11-Mile Canyon Entrance. Turn right into 11-Mile Canyon and proceed to the Forest Ranger Station. Tell the gate attendant that you are heading to Camp Alexander. You do not have to pay the access fee into 11-Mile Canyon. Follow 11-Mile Canyon past Riverside Campground about 2 miles (watch for oncoming traffic!). Look for the Camp Entrance on the left. 11

12 Follow the road to the parking lot where a staff guide will greet you and take you to your campsite. Do I have to go to camp with my son? Yes and No. Cub Scout Resident Camp is a parent-son activity and we encourage moms or dads to attend with your son so he can fully appreciate the experience. However, if for some reason you cannot attend, you must have an adult prepared to take on the responsibility of your son. This could be a Den Leader or another Scout s parent. This person will need to have agreed to take on the responsibility and must be Youth Protection trained. The youth to adult ratio for Webelos Adventure camp is 4:1 and for Cub Adventure Camp it is 2:1. Camp Alexander Can t I just pay when I get to camp? No. Due to the popularity of Camp Alexander, we must have all monies paid in full or else we will no longer hold your space and contact the next person on the waiting list. Plus, it makes check in at camp go much quicker. Do I need a Tour Permit? Tour permits are needed if anyone is carpooling to camp. If you are driving your son up to camp, then a tour permit is not needed, but it is recommended. Key Items on National/Council policy on transportation: 1. All vehicles transporting Scouts must be operated in accordance with local and state vehicle codes. 2. Vehicles must be inspected and determined to be in good mechanical condition. This is the unit committee s obligation. 12

13 3. Drivers must be 21 years or older and have a valid license. 4. Recommended: Travel is done in the daylight hours. 5. No covered trucks or camper shells for transporting Scouts. 6. All vehicles must have insurance in accordance with the State of Colorado laws. When I get to camp where do I park my vehicle? Due to the limited space we request that campers carpool. Camp has a designated parking area. During check in time there will be parking attendants to help supervise parking of vehicles. We will work with registrations to allow families to park at their campsites if applicable. Vehicles are parked facing the main exit. While at camp, vehicles should be locked and secured. Camp Alexander takes no responsibility for items left in a vehicle. Can I bring extra Scouts along and pay at check in? No. However, we encourage you to call the Council Service Center and see if there is space available. Do I need a medical exam to attend camp? ALL adventures, parents and Scouts alike, MUST have an Annual Health & Medical Form before attending camp. A copy of this form is included at the back of this guide. Bring these forms with you to camp. No one will be permitted to stay in camp without a current medical form (adult or Scout). For Resident Camp you need only Parts A & B completed upon arrival. No physical Doctors signature is required. Please note: School physical forms are not acceptable substitutes for the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form and will not be accepted. So what happens at check in? And why does the entire pack check in at the same time? Check in is simply the time when we log in the Scouts and adults, issue wristbands and 13

14 campsites, and verify that all of the paperwork is in order. Scouts should schedule their arrival between 5:00 PM to 7:00pm on the start date. Once your pack has completely arrived, you can check in. The entire pack checks in at the same time to help the paperwork run smoother, to make sure all adults and Leaders are in attendance, and to save time for everyone. But I m coming with my son and not part of a Pack. How do I check in? Simply arrive between 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Friday. Let the staff know you have arrived and are ready to be checked in. It will be required that parents of Cub Scouts remain until check in is completed and the Scout is turned over to the Pack Leadership. Where in camp will I be staying? Campsites are determined by the Camp Program Director. Your group s size and special needs are used in selection of your site. Every attempt is made to keep each unit together. Smaller Packs and individual campers maybe placed together to share a site. Groups will be in the traditional Campsites used by the Boy Scouts. Can I take my vehicle into camp to unload equipment? Yes, upon arrival you can take your car into your campsite to unload. Please keep all vehicles on the main road and park just off the road on the shoulder. Please DO NOT PULL INTO THE CAMPSITES. What are the cheers used for? At our morning and evening flag assemblies, we take role by campsite. And the way to answer back to role call is with a cheer, usually theme specific. When do the Scouts and Leaders wear their uniform? During the day, all Scouts and Leaders are encouraged to dress appropriate to the day s activities. Full BSA field uniforms are required at all evening Flag ceremonies and dinner meals. Please wear sturdy footwear. No open toed shoes or aqua-socks allowed in camp. Each Scout will be given a camp T-shirt which are permissible at other times during daytime activities, as are theme-related costumes, as long as they don t hinder the Scout in their activities. No military 14

15 style clothing, no offensive or borderline offensive lettering or pictures is allowed on clothes. All apparel worn must be in good taste and reflect the ideals of Scouting. What is considered a full uniform? The Cub Scout/Webelos uniform consists of a tucked-in blue or khaki uniform shirt with badges and patches sewn in the correct position, rank appropriate neckerchief and slide, and hat. Dark shorts or pants complete the uniform. Leaders need to demonstrate the proper knowledge of the wearing of the uniform, as well, by wearing their shirt buttoned and tucked in, too, with all the insignia in the appropriate locations. We also encourage the Scouts to leave dangling awards at home when they come to camp. Progress towards Ranks beads get lost, Webelos lose their colors or their activity badges, religious medals and pinewood derby medals get broken. If it s not sewn on, take it off and leave it at home What requirements will my scout earn? A list of requirements will be published in the Program Guide which will be rolled out on June 14 th, Please remember the focus of camp is not to achieve as many possible requirements or Belt Loops. What s camp life like? A typical day will look a lot like this: Raise Flags & Breakfast Morning Program Activities Lunch & Camp time Afternoon Program Activities Lower Flags & Dinner Evening Activities/Free time Lights out 15

16 Flags? What does that mean? Every morning, the camp conducts a special Flag ceremony. This is the time where we give announcements that may affect the rest of the day. Then we go into the dining hall for breakfast. The same happens for the flag lowering ceremony. Once again, all must be in complete uniform for the evening ceremony. Then we tell you what will happen that evening. Activities? What are those? Activities are set for the day and groups are rotated through in increments. Scouts are kept together by packs. At each station, each group will be taught a new skill or activity. BB guns, archery, knot tying, crafts, games and leatherworking are just some of these activities. Many of the activities will be geared for specific rank advancements. My brother is a different rank--can I go with his group? Alas, no, it is not recommended because many of the activities are broken down to rank appropriate activities. A Webelos wouldn t want to learn all the Wolf stuff again, nor is a Wolf ready to learn the Webelos Forester badge. Why do the parents and leaders rotate with the Scouts? We are here to help your son learn new skills and have fun with friends. Many times the Scout needs an extra set of hands to help him master a new technique, as is the case at the shooting sport ranges. But oftentimes, he simply wants to share a new experience with his parent or leader. This is a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your son and delight with him as he learns and grows. 16

17 But I m at camp I can carry a pocketknife, right? To carry a knife in camp, you must be a Bear or Webelos Scout and have your Whittlin Chip card on you at all times. If any adult sees you misusing your knife, they can take it away for the duration of camp. So you might want to review the rules before you get to camp. Certain parts of the camp program may include instruction on the proper use of a knife as a tool and in other cases the knife may be a necessary tool in the successful completion of an activity. However, none of the programs offered as a part of the camp program require the use of a knife larger than the Scout utility, standard four blade, deluxe five blade or whittler s knives. Equivalent sized, folding knives of other manufacture are satisfactory. Under NO circumstances are sheath knives or large folding knives necessary for participation in camp programs. Knives of that type should be left home. If they are brought to camp, they must be turned over to the Camp Director and stored until their owner leaves camp at the end of the session. Why do I want to go to class? Sounds like school! Some of the other classes besides the Whittlin Chip may include earning your BB or archery activity pin (as opposed to just the belt loop). Others will be parts of the Webelos pins and still others may include guest speakers. We may even open the climbing wall or the shooting sport activities for some evenings. Look for the sign-up list on the bulletin board and plan your evening appropriately. These are all optional activities so you and your Scout can have even more fun. 17

18 Do we need to bring any food? No. The dining hall will have kid-friendly food along with some healthy adult foods for all meals. We eat buffet style for all meals. The trading post has snacks available at a nominal cost. And there is coffee available early in the morning with the commissioners for all adults who can t live without it. Please be careful with food in your campsites, we have a lot of cute four legged individuals who might come and visit you during the night. When do we use the buddy system? The buddy system works for your entire stay at camp. Your Scouts must go with a buddy wherever they go. Devise some kind of a check-in plan so that you can account for your Scouts at all times. Do we need tents or other camping equipment? Yes and no. Camp Alexander will provide tents to groups that request them during registration for $18.95 each. It is a standard 8x12 canvas tent with plywood floor. You are also encouraged to bring your own tent, ground cloth and sleeping pads. Scouts cannot sleep in the same tent with an adult who is not their parent or legal guardian. Battery powered lanterns are a good way of lighting up the campsite at night. Please remember flames of any type are not permitted in tents. If you don t like hiking down for coffee in the morning, a Coleman stove with canister propane may also be a good idea. I requested a tent, how do I find out which one is for me? At check in you will be given your campsite and tent number. Each tent is numbered and identified on the outside flap. I am sorry but only preregistered tents are available. No onsite reservations. I need a shower what s the schedule? Near the campsites are hot showers that are for Scouts and their parents to use. Because of Youth Protection guidelines, please use the appropriate door to your facility. 18

19 What about toilet facilities? Up at the campsites several latrine toilets. Down near the dining hall are additional bathroom facilities for everyone s use. The main shower house has individual rooms for the different age groups. How safe is camp? We strive to offer activities that are fun for Cub Scouts/Webelos Scouts and provide advancement opportunities. All program areas will be appropriate to the age of the Scouts. It is the responsibility of everyone at camp to maintain a safe environment. Can we have campfires? No. On the first evening, the camp staff will conduct an opening campfire program. Campsite campfires are not-permitted due to extreme drought and state fire ban. Do we have fire drills? The threat of fire is a serious problem at Camp Alexander. We encourage you NOT TO SMOKE while at camp. Smoking is only allowed in Kiva amphitheater when no program or scouts are present. Smoking is not allowed on trails. No fireworks No open flames Sometime during your first 24 hours in camp, we ll conduct a camp fire drill. Instruct your campers: WHEN YOU HEAR THE FIRE ALARM: All campers go to the Parade Ground (or main parking area as backup) and assemble by campsites.-conduct a head count of your campsite.- Once everyone is accounted for, the Leader reports to the Camp Director or Program Director. Stay on the Parade Ground (or parking area) until directed to do otherwise by the Camp Director. 19

20 Can I pet the animals I see at camp? Camp Alexander, which covers 350 acres, offers a wide range of exciting adventures including the opportunity to observe many types of birds, mammals and other wildlife. Throughout camp you will see numerous animals, especially squirrels, chipmunks, and stellar jays. Undoubtedly the chance to observe a raccoon, a turkey, or maybe an eagle will provide lifelong memories. Animals often will be an exciting part of your adventures. Seeing them in their natural habitat is always a pleasure, but it is wise to remember that they are permanent residents of the camp while you are a visitor. Treat them with respect, give them enough space so they ll not feel threatened by your presence, and they ll seldom present a threat to your safety. When an animal feels frightened, threatened, or trapped, it may fight for its life by attacking, scratching, and biting. If an animal injures you, seek treatment quickly. A doctor must determine whether rabies treatments will be necessary. What are the rules for camp? Hike on designated trails only. Keep a clean campsite. Keep food out of tents. Do not feed wild animals Never approach or follow wild animals. Avoid aggressive behavior. Don t mistake passive behavior in an animal as a sign that you are safe around that animal. Never tease or attempt to pick up wildlife. Leave young animals alone; a protective mother is usually nearby. If a bear, cougar, or other potentially dangerous animal is sighted, immediately notify the Camp Director or nearest staff member. Can we bring our own BB guns and bows and arrows? 20

21 Sorry, you may not bring your own guns or archery equipment to camp. We have a wide variety of gear that is up to date and ready for all scouts to use. Is there a first aid facility? First aid treatment is given at the Health Lodge, which has a certified firstaider on duty. Arrangements have been made with nearby hospitals for emergency treatment where necessary. Sick call for non-emergency treatment is conducted following each meal period. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF LEADERS/PARENTS TO REPORT ANY INJURIES TO THE FIRST AID FACILITY OR ANY STAFF IMMEDIATELY. What s in the trading post? We have a full trading post available at camp, stocked with T shirts snow cones, ice cream and snacks, pocketknives, flashlights, assorted necessary sundries. Normally $35 per Scout will cover the cost for him through camp. Who is staff, anyway? The Cub/Webelos Resident Camp is staffed by a selected group of highly qualified and trained adults and youths, both male and female, all of whom are registered with the Boy Scouts of America. The staff s primary aim is to assist leaders in making their program effective in the lives of their Scouts by helping them to make all dens stronger as a result of their camping experience. The Cub/Webelos Camp program allows leaders to guide their den/pack through activities that will help strengthen the Cub/ Webelos den and help prepare the Cub/Webelos Scouts for their transition into Boy Scouting. The staff provides instruction in field sports, personal fitness, handicraft, outdoor skills and nature. Can adults smoke or drink at camp. Scouting leaders should set the example by not smoking or using tobacco products at Scouting activities, including council camps. The consumption, possession or use of alcohol or illegal drugs or stimulants while participating in the program of Camp Alexander is not permitted. We will enforce all local, state, or federal laws where violations involving the above are reported 21

22 My son and I need to leave camp a day early. What do we do? Any parent or Scout leaving camp must sign out at the Camp Office. Any minor who leaves camp with a parent or persons other than their parents or legal guardian must secure visual and verbal confirmation that the person is/are the parents or legal guardians. Before release of a minor to other than a parent or legal guardian be made, it is critical that every effort to secure parental consent by phone prior to the release. The person(s) picking up the minor must sign a Parent Permission to Release Minor form prior to release. The Camp Director or senior staff designee must be on hand when the minor is released. How do we check out? 1. Following breakfast on the morning of check out, pack personal equipment and pick-up trash throughout campsite. Please leave your campsite cleaner than you found it. 2. Please bring all trash to the trash truck located behind the dining hall. 3. Please plan to check out prior to 11:00 a.m. on Sunday. Is there cell-phone service at camp? Yes and no. Most cell phones don t work once you hit Eleven Mile Canyon, but a few do have reception. The camp telephone is for office and emergency use only. The camp business office can be reached at Messages will be delivered and campers can come to the camp office during free time. What is the refund policy?
