A bank system
will be set up to deposit each scouts spending
money. This money will be withdrawn from the
troop’s "banker" every day after lunch. This
money is used for craft supplies for various
(some) merit badges, program fees, souvenirs,
snacks or drinks. Each scout determines the
amount of money, which you deposit. We will
help keep it safe and it will help to keep you
thinking about the fourth item of the scout
law; Thrifty. Suggested amounts from previous
years has been around $30.00 depending on
merit badge costs (if any). See Merit Badge
information further down this page for cost
information for each merit badge. Also, we
normally stop in Clinton for lunch on the way
to camp. So, having lunch money for that meal
is necessary above what is mentioned aboved.
Of course, for those that wish to bring their
lunch is acceptable also.

OUT, ALL SCOUTS IN TENTS
At camp, the K.P.
is your waiter. He sets the table, delivers
the food and cleans up after the meal. To help
leaders and new K.P.’s, the following is a
basic activity outline. Special instructions
are given to all K.P.’s at each meal to cover
variables. Tables will be assigned to each
unit and K.P.’s are to serve and eat at their
assigned tables. The K.P. duties must be
rotated among all Scouts at the table. K.P.’s
are your waiters. As in a normal restaurant
situation they will be required to have clean
hands and have on a clean shirt. If they do
not pass inspection they will be required to
wash and be reinspected.

arrives at the dining hall at K.P. call

cleanliness inspection by commissioners.
As in a restaurant situation, KP's are
expected to have clean hands and have on a
clean shirt. If they do not pass
inspection, they will be required to clean
themselves, and then be reinspected before
they can begin their duties.
assigned table with a plate, glass, knife,
fork, and spoon for each of the eight
instructions will be given as K.P.’s set
their tables. At this time, sugar, salt,
pepper, bread, and napkins can be checked
5. When their
tables are set, the K.P.’s will sit down
quietly, and wait for further
campers enter the dining hall through
their door and are seated. Hot food is not
issued until everyone is seated. After the
blessing. K.P.’s are sent by section to
pick up hot food. (We may ask for
assistance at this time). One hot item per
and drinks are picked up at the kitchen
serving counter as directed by dining hall
8. Refills on
drinks, bread and such, are on an as
needed basis. Seconds for food may be
announced and directed by the dining hall
9. At the
conclusion of the meal and program the
program director will announce, "the
K.P.’s remain," THEN AND ONLY THEN DOES
CLEAN UP BEGIN. All food is scraped into
one serving bowl and all liquids are put
into the pitchers and the silverware is
separated. The K.P. will then dispose of
the trash, garbage, and return dirty
dishes to the washing area in the order
requested by the staff.
10. Once the
table is cleared, the K.P. will wash the
tabletop using a prepared solution. The
floor under and about the table is swept
and the sweepings are placed in trashcans
11. When each
K.P. thinks his area is clean, he holds up
his hand for area inspection and release
by a commissioner. The clean up after the
meal should take from 12 – 15 minutes. If
food is spilled, the responsible K.P. will
be required to do some spot clean up.
While being a K.P. may not be everyone’s
"most enjoyable task," a concerted effort
will be made by the staff to help K.P.’s.
However, firm control must be maintained
and K.P.’s will be expected to follow
directions. We request only one K.P. per
table. An experienced Scout should handle
the first meal K.P. responsibility of a
can be a great adventure for some Scouts and
can be done so if proper precautions are taken
to ensure the safety of all involved. Any
Scouts wishing to visit one of our many caves
must be accompanied by at least two adults
over 18 years of age and must have a hike
permit filed with the camp office prior to
leaving. Interested persons should first check
with the camp director for a current list of
possible cave closings.
A Scoutmaster may
dispense any prescription if properly labeled
with frequency and dosage by the pharmacy. If
not properly labeled, the health lodge must
administer medication. All prescription drugs
dispensed by the unit must be locked with
restricted access and records kept detailing
dispensing activity. All drugs needing
refrigeration may be kept in the locked
refrigerator in the commissioner cabin or
health lodge. All needles must be disposed in
a sharps container also located in the lead
The Cortes Health
Lodge is an excellent first aid facility.
First aid at the health lodge is just
that…first aid. It is
not a hospital or an emergency room.
The council is
fortunate to have many physicians volunteer
their time and services to provide a high
level of care at the health lodge. The
treatment of pre-existing or non-camp related
illnesses or injuries should not be expected;
such cases will be referred to local health
providers who charge for services.
Sick call hours
have been established for the convenience of
both the campers and the medical staff, and to
accommodate all the programs on our schedule.
As a general guideline, sick call will be held
following every meal and include
non-emergencies such as: sore throats, poison
ivy, and problems that are not life
One hour following
each meal. Not during meal times except in an
Emergency care is
available 24-hours-a-day. In case of
emergency, contact the camp office during
office hours (7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.) or the
lead commissioner after hours. They will
coordinate with the health lodge for
treatment. In suspected neck, back injuries,
fractures and other suspected severe injuries, do not attempt to move or
transport the patient without instruction by
qualified personnel from the
reservation health lodge.
participating in outdoor activities should
take steps to prevent exposure to tick bites.
Wear long-sleeved shirt and long pants. Tuck
pants into boots or socks.
Wear light colored clothing to make it easier
to spot ticks.
Conduct frequent and thorough "tick checks."
Finding and removing the ticks quickly is
important. "Tick checks" should be
conducted at least every 4-6 hours while in
remote areas of camp.
repel ticks (use non-aerosol).
"bush whacking" through high grass and brush.
WEST NILE VIRUS - Human illness from
West Nile Virus is rare, even in areas where
the virus has been reported. The chance that
any one person is going to become ill from a
mosquito bite is low. You can further reduce
your chances of becoming ill by protecting
yourself from mosquito bites.
To avoid mosquito
bites, apply insect repellant containing DEET
(N,N-diethyl-meta-tolumide) when you are
outdoors. When possible, wear long sleeve
clothes and long pants treated with repellans
containing permethrin or DEET since mosquitos
may bite through thin clothing. Do not apply
repellants containing permethrin directly to
exposed skin. If you spray your clothing,
there is no need to spray repellant containing
DEET on the skin under your clothing.
requirements for merit badges offered at camp
can be completed at camp. When requirements
are done at camp, in the presence of the merit
badge counselor or instructor, it is usually
clear that the Scout has the knowledge or
skill level required.
completed outside the presence of a counselor,
necessitates that the counselor, review with
the Scout that he can demonstrate his
understanding. For requirements done before
camp, Scouts are advised to bring evidence of
completion of projects with them to camp. For
example, camping merit badge requirement 9a
requires a Scout to have 20 days and 20 nights
of camping. A note from a Scout leader
certifying the required 20/20 is less
satisfactory than the Scout providing a log of
his camping experience. Notes attest to
completion are less satisfactory than evidence
like photos, logs, journals, drawing, etc.
and the Scouts personal knowledge displayed
during the counseling enable the counselor to
make certain that the requirements have been
met. Please prepare your Scouts by helping
them "show their stuff" to the camp merit
