INTRODUCTION:

The primary objective of the Hornpoint Camp Out, which has been designed for Second-Year Webelos as well as First-Year Webelos, Cubs and Tigers, is to provide an opportunity for our youth to experience Scouting in an environrment where they can have FUN and FELLOWSHIP as an added dimension to their growing experiences. Secondary objectives are to give participants an opportunity to see unusual/specific items of interest in the world around us, and to provide the public with a positive display of Scouting at its best. The third is to just spend time with family and the members of your pack/troop 532 family. So lets have fun!

BSA Sleeping Arrangement Policy

# Parents may leave(w/scouts remaining) after the campfire. Before parents leave you must check out with Jeff to be sure we have an active health form and important information.

# Scouts will be sleeping together in one section of the dorm adult supervision will be provided for the entire evening. Leaders will be staying in the middle section of the dorm facility.

# Male and female leaders must have separate sleeping facilities. Married couples may share the same quarters in their own personal tents. # Male and female youth participants will not share the same sleeping facility.

# Single-room or dormitory-type accommodations for Scouting units: Adults and youth of the same gender may occupy dormitory or single-room accommodations, provided there is a minimum of two adults and four youth. A minimum of one of the adults is required to be youth-protection trained. Adults must establish separation barriers or privacy zones such as a temporary blanket or sheet walls in order to keep their sleeping area and dressing area separated from the youth area.

 

An official BSA tour permit has been filled out which covers this event as an insured Cub Scout event. If any injuries occur during the duration of the stay at Horn Point please contact Jeff Bell immediately.


 

Pack 532 "KEEP IT CLEAN" Policy

Horn Point has invited us as guests of the facility. It is our responsibility to leave the facility in better condition than when we arrived. Because of this, we are asking all members of the family to take part in the service project and "in general" pick up any trash we may find on the trails or in camp.

Cub Masters Note:

(Please Help) We encourage scouts and parents to be courteous to the leaders and scouts that may be speaking. We may also recruit you to help volunteer with set-up or an activity. Also, we are looking for feed back on the event (positive and negative). This is the first time for our pack to try this kind of event. The cost of the event was $10.00 per person to stay in the dorms. The pack picked up the additional cost for scouts and food. We need your feed back to help us grow... Please contact/e-mail Jeff to help us determine if this was a worthwhile event. My cell phone will be with me in case you have an emergency and need to contact a member of the pack.(Available on pdf version of this document...see top of page)
