1 Early Arrival Units wishing to arrive on Saturday must submit the Early Arrival Form found in the Administration Guide and receive approval from the Camp Registrar. Please understand that there are no services provided by the camp on Saturday so units must provide their own food and programming. Please be mindful of our wildlife policies and instruct your youth that the waterfront is off limits. Official check-in will still be on Sunday at 1 P.M. at the Welcome Center. Arrival and Check-In Troops must register as a group at Camp Ottari between 1:00 and 3:00 pm on Sunday. Checking in as a group means that your trip leader has the rosters for each program the unit is participating in that week (i.e. Mountain Man, High Knoll, New River, Brownsea, Foxfire, Voyageur, Claytor Lake, and Fish Camp). Please understand that additional participants cannot be added on Sunday. All registration must be completed through the Camp Registrar. A staff member will greet you in the parking lot and direct your Trip Leader toward the Camp Director who will register your group. Meanwhile, a staff guide will lead the rest of the unit to the troop site where an inspection will be conducted of all tents and facilities. Please understand that campsites are assigned based on special needs and numbers of participants: units are not guaranteed certain campsites, most campsites will contain multiple units and, in most cases, adults will be sharing a tent with another adult leader. Units traveling with gear in a trailer will be permitted to drive the trailer to their campsite, all other gear must be either packed in or transported by a camp vehicle. Please note that some campsites may not have space for your trailer to be parked for the week. At some point during the tour, your troop will be directed to the waterfront so that swim tests can be conducted. Swim tests done before camp will not be accepted. Anyone who wants to swim at camp, must go through a swim test at camp. Paperwork Please refer to the unit check list found in the Administration Guide to help ensure your unit has all the necessary documents for camp. Camp Director Your Trip Leader s first stop will be with the Camp Director who will check for a Tour Plan, proof of Troop Insurance, and make sure all registration is correct. All outstanding fees must be paid at this time so please bring a check for this purpose. If you feel your account balance is in error or would like to request a refund, we will facilitate communication with our Camp Registrar who is located in Roanoke. The Camp Director will need to collect one copy of the roster for each camp your unit is attending please have these completed before you arrive! Lastly, you will be given a wristband for each paid participant. This is both your meal ticket and identification as a camp participant. Program Director The second stop is with the Program Director. The Program Director will inform you of the many activities offered at Ottari and will assist you if there are any problems with your merit badge schedule. Additional merit badge offerings may be announced at the Sunday night leaders meeting. Brownsea Director Check roster and give outline of the week. Camp Tour During the camp tour, your troop guide will point out all camp landmarks and program areas. Your troop guide will provide your unit with a fireguard chart, a camp map, camp emergency procedures and a job description for the troop health officer. The most important stops are: Medical Recheck Remember to bring both your medical form and Prescription Medication Dosing Form to this station. The medical recheck is designed to make sure that there have been no significant changes in the participant s health since his or her last physical exam. All Camps and Programs have been Nationally Accredited through the BSA NCAP Accreditation Program Your First Day at Camp Camp Leaders Guide 2017 Camp Ottari Page 1

2 Your First Day at Camp Please notify our staff of any campers with limitations, special needs, or life-threatening conditions at this time. If all signatures and required information are present, then a buddy tag will be issued to the participant. Troops are encouraged to place their forms alphabetically in a three ring binder to speed up the process. Please do not put the forms in plastic sheet protectors. If your unit has a youth or adult taking medications, please review the Administration Guide for proper management and storage. Dining Hall This is a very important stop as your group will meet the Head Steward and receive the unit s table assignment. The steward will also instruct your group in proper dining hall etiquette and procedures. If you have Scouts who have a special dietary need, we would like to help with this, but need to have a Special Needs Request form to do so. The Special Needs form lets us know of the details concerning the Scouts allergy or need. Please do this well in advance of you arriving at camp (at least a week). Not all needs can be accommodated. Scouts with special allergies, such as gluten allergies, should bring their own food. They may store their food in the dining hall refrigerator. One of your leaders should be assigned to help Scouts who bring their own food in case they need assistance in preparing their food. Scouts are always welcome to eat the food that we provide and they can choose to bring food in order to supplement the existing menu. Quartermaster The Quartermaster will issue any gear that your group might need throughout the week for cleaning or camp projects. The Quartermaster also controls access to the flammable fuels where your group must store propane and flammable fuels. Swim Check At the waterfront, the Aquatics Director will explain rules and procedures surrounding the use of the camp swimming and boating areas. All participants wishing to swim during the week should take their swim test at this time. Shooting Sports Learn basic safety rules and find out about open shoots. Supper All meals will be served cafeteria style in our dining hall. Units participating in the Base Camp program should assemble at the flags near the Camp Office in full Class A uniform by 5:50 p.m. After Troop Reports and Grace, your unit will be directed into the dining hall. Table waiters should report to the dining hall 10 minutes early. Leaders Meeting A Camp Leaders Meeting will be held at the Welcome Center. This is a very important meeting where you will be introduced to the Area Directors, be given important information, and have an opportunity to address any concerns.

4 Merit Badge Schedules and Sign-Ups A password to access our on-line registration system will be mailed out after your troop has made its April 1st payment. Your troop will be able to register for merit badges two weeks prior to your arrival with this code. Registration will close on Saturday at noon, the day before you arrive at camp. When signing your Scouts up for merit badges, please refer to the Ottari camp map and take note that there is a sizable hill between the upper camp program areas of Nature and Handicraft and the lower camp program areas of Shooting Sports, Scoutcraft, and Aquatics. Please schedule so that your scouts will have time to travel between classes! Important Notes: 1. With the exception of Horsemanship, there will be no additional charges for merit badges n Scouts signed up for electives like Basketry will receive their kits on the first day of class. 2. Merit Badge sign ups are on a first-come, first-served basis. The on-line system will automatically close classes when they are full. 3. The Scout must take both hours of a class consecutively if the class is scheduled for two hours. Badges which require two hours include Environmental Science, Pioneering, Horsemanship (your road travel time is a part of the two hours), Rifle, Shotgun Shooting, Small Boat Sailing, and Lifesaving. 4. Mile Swim and BSA Snorkeling are not merit badges; they are basic skill instruction. 5. The Brownsea Island Adventure is an all day, all week program. If your Scouts want to take a variety of merit badges, they should be in the merit badge program, rather than Brownsea. If your Scouts need some instruction on a few of the skills required for 1st Class, we ask that the troop contact either their Commissioner or the Scoutcraft department to arrange for some private instruction. 6. Evening activities will be announced at the Adult Leader s meetings at camp. 7. Scouts must be age 12 and at least 100 lbs but less than 300 lbs to ride the zip line. Sign up at the Trading Post. 8.

Not all requests can be accommodated. Scouts with gluten allergies are advised to bring their own food which can be stored in the dining hall refrigerator. 9. No swim checks can be completed prior to arrival at camp. Alert! Please note that the water at Camp Ottari is spring fed and can be quite cold! Due to this fact, you must take a swim test at camp with our aquatics staff. Camp Leaders Guide 2017 Camp Ottari Page 4

5 Merit Badges: Details & Prerequisites ADVANCEMENT Summer camp has traditionally been viewed as a convenient place where Scouts can earn several merit badges in a short amount of time. At the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation, however, we offer much more than merit badges. During their week at camp, Scouts will grow mentally, physically, and spiritually as they interact with their peers in a safe and positive environment that revolves around recreational swimming, hiking, shooting, campfires, sports, and games. Though advancement is still integral to our summer camp experience, we encourage and offer opportunities for much more than organized lessons. We encourage all our units to take advantage of these opportunities. MERIT BADGES All badges will be taught based on the requirements found in the most recent edition of the BSA s requirement book. Please check to make sure your merit badge books contain the same requirements. Campers seeking to take a merit badge must pre-register online through C.A.M.P. Online. It is the responsibility of each Scout to choose and prepare for each merit badge that he wishes to take in advance of his week at camp. Prerequisites exist for many of the badges and are outlined in this guide. To prevent partials, please make sure your Scouts come to camp with these prerequisites completed and appropriate proof of completion (i.e. examples of their work or a note from their Scoutmaster). To ensure quality and safe instruction, class sizes are limited according to the number of instructors, equipment, and other factors. DIFFICULTY SCALE Advanced Badge: badges in this category are the most difficult to complete at summer camp due to the course content, number of prerequisites, and expected ability level of the Scouts. Advanced badges are highly recommended for your oldest Scouts who are First Class and above. Moderate Badge: badges in this category can be easily earned at camp by experienced Scouts but have a few prerequisites to complete at home. Basic Badge: badges in this category have few, if any, prerequisites. These courses are excellent for Scouts of all ages and ability levels. Camp Leaders Guide 2017 Camp Ottari Page 5

11 Important Information At-A-Glance Please read the Administration Guide for Complete Details Camp Leadership and Visitors Continuity of adult leadership at camp is one of the keys to a successful week; however, we understand that leaders are often forced to switch out due to work obligations. If your unit must rotate leadership, please remember that the number of adults in camp cannot exceed the number of paid leaders. For example, if you have paid for 5 leaders (spending the night), there must be no more than 5 leaders (spending the night) at any time. Leaders should switch at the Camp Office where there is a sign in/ sign out log and where a new wristband may be issued. If you have a visitor coming for the day, please remind them to sign in at the office and receive a visitor wristband. Visitors are required to pay for any meals they plan to eat in the dinning hall ($4 for breakfast, $5 for lunch, and $6 for supper). Anyone who stays the night must pay the weekly fee; we do not prorate fees, so please make sure that all of your parents and leaders understand this. Some visitors have chosen to stay in a local hotel if they want to visit for more than one day. Pets are not allowed at any time on the Reservation! Wildlife and Bears The Blue Ridge Scout Reservation is blessed with an abundance of wildlife ranging from raccoons to bears and strict management practices are enforced to ensure the safety of both humans and wildlife. Any food or smellables brought to camp must be stored in a secure location when unsupervised. The Camp Ranger will fine those individuals found feeding wildlife or failing to secure smellables. Please read the Wildlife Best Management Practices section of the Administration Guide for more information. Please report bear encounters to the camp office. Tent Damage Participants will be housed in either tents or Adirondack cabins during their stay at camp. Your leadership should conduct a careful inspection of the campsite along with your staff guide to document any existing damage (usually cuts in the tents). Troops are responsible for all property damage found during the check-out process and will be charged $25 per inch for new tent damage. Contagious Disease The Blue Ridge Mountains Council takes the safety and welfare of its staff and participants very seriously. All units will be stopped at the entrance and asked if anyone has experienced nausea/vomiting or fever during the last 48 hours. Sick individuals and often entire units will be quarantined if our health officers suspect a risk of contagion. Please ask anyone with a recent sickness to stay home. Refunds can be issued with a doctor s note by completing a no-show form at check-in. Please do not put the health and safety of others at risk by violating this policy.
