5 CAMPERSHIPS PURPOSE: To provide a fund to assist deserving Scouts who otherwise cannot meet the attendance fees to attend long-term camping opportunities sponsored by the Council. GENERAL: Many Scouts need and deserve help in meeting the expense of attending Scout camping opportunities. The Campership Fund Program recognizes that some Scouts need more help, because of greater need. The amount of the fund will vary from season to season. All Scouts who receive CAMPERSHIPS will be required to earn part of the fee in accordance with the 9 th SCOUT LAW A Scout is Thrifty, unless there are circumstances that make this clearly impossible. No investigation will be made as the Unit Leader is presumed to have intimate knowledge of the circumstances. Details of the request, approval, and administration must be such that there is no embarrassment to the Scout or his family. All requests must be received at the Council Service Center by May 2, 2014 for review by Campership Committee. POLICIES: 1. Campership funds will be awarded on a first come, first served basis until the fund is exhausted, usually half of the camp fee unless a lesser amount is requested. Letters of request may be submitted earlier, but confirmation of Camperships will begin in April and continue until all funds are exhausted. 2. No more than half, and often less than half, of the total attendance fee will be granted from Campership funds, unless clearly justified. 3. The Campership is based on the Early Bird Fee, once approved and amount given, then the individual receiving the Campership must submit his portion of fees by the appropriate registration date. 4. Letters of request must clearly indicate any circumstances that prevent the Scout from earning part of the fee by his own efforts. 5. All requests need to be submitted in letter form to the Mobile Area Council Summer Camp Director. All requests will be reviewed and we will do our best to provide every boy an opportunity to attend summer camp. 5

9 GETTING READY FOR CAMP CAMP LEADERSHIP - Each troop registering for summer camp, furnishes its own leadership. The Unit must provide TWO-DEEP Leadership. The Unit Leader must be a BSA registered Adult Scouter, at least 21 years of age, with current Youth Protection Training, and preferably should be the year-round leader. It is the responsibility of the Unit Committee to provide trained, top-flight leadership for this important activity. If the year round Unit Leader cannot attend, good and able leadership can be recruited from the BSA registered assistant Unit Leaders, Committee Members, or other members of the Chartering institution who are 21 years old and currently Youth Protection Trained. Assistant leaders at camp may be between the ages of 18 and 21 if necessary. Troops with a large number of Scouts attending should secure one or more assistant adult leaders, if at all possible. All leaders must be registered members of the Boy Scouts of America. PHYSICAL EXAMINATION AND HEALTH - Every Scout and Leader must have a valid Physical Examination form filled out and updated. Any person coming to camp without having a completed Physical Examination form will be sent home. Youth and Adult medical forms are available, free of charge, at the Council Service Center or on line through the council s website ( The Health Lodge will be staffed by a skilled medic under the direction of the Camp Physician and Camp Director. Arrangements have been made with local hospitals to handle any emergency treatments. INSURANCE - All Scouts and Scouters are required to have current insurance coverage. A copy of their insurance card must be attached to their Health Form. In addition, ALL registered Scouts and Scouters of the Mobile Area Council, BSA are covered by a Health and Accident Insurance Policy for the period of their stay at camp. It is therefore necessary for every Scout to be checked in and out at the Camp Office. Claims can be filed for all illnesses and accidents requiring medical care not provided in the Camp Health Lodge. Every illness or accident must be reported to the Health Officer immediately to receive insurance coverage. Medical expenses incurred after leaving camp, resulting from an accident or illness taking place at camp, must be submitted immediately to the Council for clearance with the insurance company. TRANSPORTATION - Suitable transportation for your Scouts is a very important matter. Tour Plans are the first step in planning transportation and need to be filed at the Council Service Center a minimum of 14 days in advance of your arrival at Maubila Scout Reservation. All requirements of the Tour Plan (driver s age, seatbelts, insurance coverage, vehicle inspection, etc) need to be met to assure your Troop has a successful trip to camp. ARRIVAL TIME - Troops should arrive at camp NO EARLIER THAN 1:00 P.M and NO LATER THAN 3:00 P.M. Arriving to camp early causes unnecessary waiting, and arriving too late causes your troop to miss the required check-in and orientation. DEPARTURE TIME - Troops should be prepared to leave by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. A staff member will be assigned to assist you in checking out. Early Troop departures must be coordinated the day before with the Camp Director and Program Director. PROVISIONAL CAMPING UNIT MAUBILA SCOUT RESERVATION will offer Provisional Camping as an option for those Scouts, for whatever reason, could not attend camp with their own troop, or who are returning to camp for an additional week. Please note on the registration form when registering provisional campers. You may do so by writing provisional by the boy s name. 9

10 LEAVING CAMP - Since MAUBILA SCOUT RESERVATION is a Boy Scout Camp and the Mobile Area Council, BSA is responsible for all personnel, we ask that you instruct your Scouts that no one is to leave the camp without first getting permission from their Unit Leader, and second, the permission of the Camp Director. Anyone who leaves camp for any reason must sign out at the Camp Office before leaving and sign back in upon return. This applies to Unit Leaders as well. DINING HALL - Wholesome food is prepared and served by a professional staff of food service personnel. Scouts sit 8 to 10 to a table by Troops and meals are served family-style. VISITORS - Visitors are welcome in camp and are encouraged to attend our Family Night Campfire on Friday at 8:15 p.m. All visitors are required to check in at the Camp Office. Visitors are invited to dine with their Scouts in the Dining Hall on Friday night at 6:15 p.m. Unit Leaders will need to submit a total number of campers and visitors who will be eating in the Dining Hall to the Camp Director by lunch on Thursday. Visitors meals are $5.00 and they will need to purchase meal tickets at the Trading Post upon arrival at camp. CAMP PHONE - The camp phone is a business phone and will be used only in emergencies. The phone number will be given to Troop leaders before they depart for camp. TRADING POST - The well-stocked Camp Trading Post is open each day. A schedule will be posted for operating hours and will be closed during meals. Ice cream, candy, snacks, soft drinks, BSA catalog items, Camp Souvenirs, handicraft kits, and sundries are available for purchase. The Trading Post also accepts Visa and MasterCard Credit and check cards. History shows that a Scout will spend at least $75.00 during their stay at Camp. GENERAL CLEANLINESS - Good Scouting is clean clean camp, speech and personage. We ask you to pay special attention to your boys and to your campsite. A daily inspection will be made of each troop s area and an award given at the end of the week. VEHICLES IN CAMP - Vehicles may be driven only as far as the parking lot after the Sunday check in. Only camp vehicles and delivery trucks will be allowed on camp roads per National Camp Standards. The roads are narrow and dangerous with Scouts walking around. If you need an item transported, check with the Camp Office. NOTE: SCOUTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE TRANSPORTED IN THE BACK OF TRUCKS OR ON TRAILERS AT ANYTIME. ORDER OF THE ARROW - Thursday will be recognized as OA Day. All Arrowmen are encouraged to wear their sashes on Thursday. Special OA activities will be organized by Woa Cholena Lodge for those in camp. 50 TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION is our 50 th Anniversary of Summer Camps at Camp Maubila. We are planning a Birthday Extravaganza for Thursday of Week 2. Make plans to attend this day of celebration, reminiscing, and renewing of old friendships. If you have ever camped at Camp Maubila, please plan on attending. Exciting event info to be announced soon. 10

11 IMPORTANT CAMP POLICIES Policies are for the safety of campers, protection of equipment and to provide fairness to all.

All cars will be parked in the camp parking lot. NO alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, or other unlawful substances. NO tobacco products are to be used around or near Scouts, only in designated areas. Closed toed shoes and socks must be worn at all times. Anyone leaving camp must sign out at the Camp Office. A troop must have two-deep adult leadership at all times during the entire stay of the troop at camp. Medication for Scouts is to be kept at the Health Lodge and administered by the Health Officer. The Scout Field Uniform, correctly worn, is the most proper dress for the evening meal and special events. Initiations or any form of hazing will not be tolerated by the Boy Scouts of America. The Chemical Fuels policy as described in the Guide to Safe Scouting is in effect at all times during your stay at camp. The Buddy System must be used at all times for all activities. THE SCOUT OATH and LAW IS THE LAW OF MAUBILA SCOUT RESERVATION 11

12 Mobile Area Council Boy Scouts of America PROCEDURES TO FOLLOW FOR UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS IN CAMP 1. If any leader or camp staff member sees a person in camp without the appropriate identification please ask them in a courteous manner the nature of their business. 2. Ask them to please report with you to the camp office for approval to be on camp property. They will be required to check in nature of their business approximate length of stay. 3. In the case of previous camp staff members visiting, have them report to the Program or Camp Director for approval. The Program or Camp Director will find out the nature of their visit and the length of time of their visit. Previous camp staff members are not to go into any program area and under no circumstances are they to remain in camp overnight. 4. The above procedures are to be covered during staff week training and the first Scoutmaster meeting of each week. PROCEDURE TO FOLLOW FOR NO SHOWS AT REGISTRATION For compliance in the protection of all campers registered at Maubila Scout Reservation the following procedures are in place: Scoutmasters are asked to verify any no shows from their attendance roster turned in prior to arrival at camp. This may be done at a Leader s Meeting or via the mail. If there are no shows the Scoutmaster must provide an explanation of no shows from information he has concerning the Scout. If the Scoutmaster is unaware he must investigate why no shows and then provide an explanation within 24 hours. 12

13 Advancement Plan at Maubila Scout Reservation Here are a few tips, tricks, and reminders to help you get the most out of your summer camp experience at Maubila Scout Reservation Summer camp is not a merit badge mill, where you pay a fee and automatically receive three of four merit badges. Merit badges are just a result of the Maubila Scout Reservation Experience. For first year campers (Rawhide), do not schedule them for merit badges beyond their age and experience level. Be aware of which badges require the most skills and physical strength (i.e.- lifesaving, rifle shooting, environment science, etc.) Merit badge work at camp can be made easier if Scouts complete prerequisites and read the merit badge pamphlet prior to coming to camp. Just as they schedule merit badges, Scouts also need to be encouraged to schedule time to work on those badges outside of class, and even more importantly, to participate in other aspects of the camp program, including free swim, boating, handicrafts, and more. Take time to sit back and enjoy nature. Make your campsite the heart of your camp. Make it comfortable by adding improvement. And, as always, leave the tents and site in better shape as they where when you arrived. Be spirited! Your troop can help the whole camp to come alive and everyone will have a better experience in their week at camp. Be flexible. Each week Maubila Scout Reservation can have as many as 250 people in camp. While the staff is dedicated to meeting everyone s needs, sometimes it cannot be done right away or exactly what you had hoped. Communicate! Let the Camp Director or Program Director know how you are doing, what you need, and how we can help. If you don t tell us, we ll never know! We are not afraid of positive criticism, as it helps to make Maubila Scout Reservation even better. MERIT BADGES We have an exciting and successful merit badge program. If a Scout has qualified on certain requirements prior to coming to camp, it is the responsibility of the Scoutmaster to document and sign off on those requirements on the Merit Badge Record Card prior to starting the merit badge class at camp. How to select merit badge classes: 1)The Scout discusses the merit badge subject with his Scoutmaster and they together develop a merit badge plan for summer camp. 2) Merit Badge Pre-Sign Up is done using the form found in the appendix of this guide. Some classes are limited on size. Classes will be given on a first come, first serve basis. However, this form must be submitted to the council office by May 9,

14 Merit Badges and Activities The following is a list of all merit badge classes offered for instruction within each program area by Maubila Scout Reservation. Trained instructors will follow the recommended BSA instructional material focusing on those requirements that can be fulfilled while at camp. The instructors will certify in writing, to the Scoutmaster at the end of the week, those requirements that have been met for each merit badge for each Scout while at camp. It is highly recommended that each Scout have a full curriculum of classes and activities during the week. However, having one period open is not to be seen as a problem.

19 RAWHIDE FIRST YEAR CAMPER PROGRAM The RAWHIDE Camper Program is for those Scouts attending camp for their first time and need advancement for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. The Rawhide program schedule takes up periods 1, 2, and 3. This format allows the Scouts to attend two other merit badge periods (periods 4 and 5.) RAWHIDE is staffed by youth selected for their ability to deliver a program based on the basic Scouting skills needed for advancement to First Class. The instructors have many years of experience in camping, hiking, and living the life of a Scout. The Rawhide participants will have their own learning environment dedicated to meet their advancement needs. The Patrol Method of instruction will be used. Rawhide participants will be able to complete most skills required for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks while at camp. However, much more than just the rank advancement requirements are taught. This is also contingent on the Scout attending all classes and dedicating their time to complete the various requirements. Participation in the Rawhide program is not mandatory; it is left up to the discretion of the Scoutmaster. A Wednesday night outpost campout will take place to add to the experience. The Rawhide participants are asked to have the following: Scout Hand Book Swimming MB Pamphlet First Aid MB Pamphlet Frame Backpack Canteen Knife/ Fork/ Spoon Tent (can be shared) Ground Cloth Sleeping Bag Long Sleeve Button Shirt Bathing Suit Long Pants Shoes (that can get wet) 2, 1-Liter water bottles Plastic Cup or Mug Compass Notebook and Pencil ***IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT 1 st YEAR CAMPERS TAKE FIRST AID MB AND SWIMMING MB DURING THE OTHER TWO INSTRUCTIONAL PERIODS*** 19

20 Camp- Wide Activities CAMPFIRES The Maubila Scout Reservation staff will host two weekly campfire programs. Our opening campfire is informational and the skits are put on by the staff. The staff will give you a warm welcome and each program staff member will explain the unique opportunities in their area. Friday s closing campfire will consist of troop skits, camp awards, and a look back at the week s fun. We invite parents and families to attend our closing campfire. TROOP SWIM Did you know you can host your own troop night swim or early morning swim? If your troop leadership has the right certifications, contact the Program Director to schedule a time to swim for your troop. EVENING ACTIVITIES Each night there will be a variety of camp-wide activities to interest all Scouts, including troop and individual competitions. There will be new competitions at camp and we will repeat some of the favorite camp wide games from years past including Staff Hunt. TROOP NIGHT Tuesday night will be troop night. This will allow individual troops an opportunity to develop their own program for that evening. This will help reinforce the patrol method and allow a leadership opportunity for the boy leadership. Units are afforded the opportunity to cook in their campsite with all needed materials available for pickup at the dining hall starting at 5:30. This is great for the first year camper to complete one more requirement. If your unit chooses not to cook in your campsite the same meal will be provided for your unit in the dining hall. OA DAY Thursday is OA day at camp and we invite any OA member to wear a lodge t-shirt during the day. That evening, Woa Cholena will be hosting a special evening program. A short fellowship will be held in the dining hall after the program for any OA member. MAUBILA MARATHON The Maubila Marathon is the ultimate inter-patrol event for the week.

22 Adult Program Activities Too often, our summer camp planning is made around programming for the Scouts. The leaders are overlooked.
