Sustainability The Camporee has set a goal to be a zero-impact event. Units will be encouraged to follow Leave No Trace guidelines. Please plan your weekend to help minimize our impact.

Contact Information Camporee Chair: Aaron Swanson 716-249-9155 (cell) [email protected] Staff Advisor: Bob Blatz 716-512-6215 (office) [email protected]

Health & Safety First Aid All medical injuries/illnesses must be reported to the Camporee Health Warden. The Health Warden and contact information will be announced at the Friday night Bonfire and Cracker Barrel. Staff will also be in the Leaders Lodge. If an event occurs requiring medical attention and the individual can make it to the Leaders Lodge, he/she should be escorted there. If the individual has a serious injury, do NOT move them and call 911 then the Camporee Health Warden. Medical personnel will be dispatched to the site of the medical emergency as needed.

Medications & Health Forms Each unit attending the Camporee should have individual medical histories for each Scout and adult. Health forms should be kept by the unit leader and made available to our medical staff as needed. Download the BSA form at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_AB.pdf Medications should be handled per unit policy. From the BSA Guide to Safe Scouting: The taking of prescription medication is the responsibility of the individual taking the medication and/or that individual’s parent or guardian. A leader, after obtaining all the necessary information, can agree to accept the responsibility of making sure a youth takes the necessary medication at the appropriate time, but BSA does not mandate or necessarily encourage the leader to do so. Read the full BSA medication guidelines at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/SAFE_USE_OF_MEDICATION_IN_SCOUTING.pdf

Be Prepared •

Training—One adult from each unit must complete Weather Hazards training at my.scouting.org (current within two years). • Each Unit MUST have a minimum of two (2) adults with an adult / youth ration of at least 1 adult for every 10 youths. • Hydration—Remind Scouts to drink enough liquids throughout the day. Everyone should bring their own water bottle for the weekend. More information: http://www.riskmanagementinscouting.com/proper-hydration-are-you-paying-attention/ • Cold Weather-Related Health Issues—Review the symptoms of cold weather health conditions with your unit and report any instances to the closest medical tent for observation and treatment. • Potable Water—Any unit camping at the Camporee should bring water jugs to carry at least 10 gallons.

Safety • •

• •



All Units should follow the Guide to Save Scouting. Youth Protection—All adults staying over-night with a unit must have taken BSA Youth Protection Training at my.scouting.org within two years of the date of the Camporee. Guests who are staying with a unit for the day do not require this training although we are recommending that it be completed by all adult participants. Buddy System—Scouts should utilize the buddy system at all times. Unit leadership should know where each group of buddies are in case of emergency. Fires—Cooking fires will be allowed at this event in the designated fire rings in each campsite or near each cabin. Units may also cook with propane or white gas stoves. Liquid fuels should be stored appropriately. For more information please refer to http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/680-013WB.pdf. It is also recommended that all units provide fire extinguishers, appropriate for the fuel being used in case of cooking area fires. No flames are allowed in tents. In no case, should youth or adults try to fight fires that are out of control. Fire emergencies should be reported to the Camporee Chair: Aaron Swanson Inclement Weather—In the event of unforeseen severe weather, (thunderstorms/high winds/flooding/snow/sleet/ice), a general siren/signal will be sounded. When this signal is heard, all leaders should congregate with their units, ensure that all members are present (take a head count), and proceed to the nearest permanent shelter. Further details to be discussed at the Friday evening leader’s meeting.

Security There will be a group of Health & Safety personnel, who we are identifying as “Safety Resource Officers”, (SRO). They will be patrolling the campsites, looking for safety violations, or unsafe conditions. It is not the intent of these volunteers to point out trivial problems, but rather to work with you, the unit leaders, to achieve a safe and enjoyable environment for our scouts. If you have any issues, relating to Health & Safety, please be sure to stop these individuals and let them know of your concerns!
