What To Bring
The items listed below will be necessary to insure your son's
health and comfort while attending Summer Camp
It is also recommended that he bring a game,
book, or other item to help occupy his time during rest periods.
Please, NO radios or other sound emitting devices that do not
have earphones; knives with blades longer than three (3) inches
or requiring sheaths, Aerosol sprays, or anything that has a high
monetary or sentimental value. We have discovered that things
have ways of being misplaced or broken on campouts!
All food and drink that your camper will need for the week
will be provided for as part of their Summer Camp fee.
However, he should consider bringing
snacks to replenish his energy between meals.
There is a traiding post where junk food is for sale.
If you must send your son with snacks and/or junk food
make sure they are indavidualy wraped items and inform
them not to eat them in their tents. Sunks and Coons
will smell the food and come into the tent to dine
on the leftovers. If you son and/or his personal items
are sprayed by a Skunk, everything but the boy will
be burnt! Therefore, DON'T have food in the tent!!!
ALL clothing items
that your son takes should be permanently marked with his name.
We frequently end up with a pile of dirty clothing after the campout
with no one willing to claim anything in it. Such iteams are tossed
in the rubbish bin.
Turn your Summer Camp Physical in at least two weeks before leaving
for camp to your Scout Master.
Where your swim suit under your uniform on the first day of camp.
After setting up camp you will be expected to take a swim test.
Uniform is worn for every Breakfast and Dinner. Bring some Woolite
to clean your uniform.
The following equipment, clothing, and personal items are recommended.
However, if your son does not have a specific item, a substitution
should be made to provide similar functionality.

Dircetions from Columbus, Ohio
Coming from Columbus: Pick up 23 South to Chillicothe then 35 east.
The camp is located approximately 5 miles off US Route 35.
If you are approaching from the west (via Chillicothe) exit left onto Elam
Road. After 1 = miles, turn left onto Boy Scout Road.
After traveling 2 = miles on Boy Scout Road, turn left onto John W. Barbee
Road. From there, it is 1.2 miles to a hairpin turn to the right. From there
you are on the gravel camp road. This road which descends into the valley
offers beautiful scenery, but it is extremely narrow and should be traveled
with caution. It is 1 = miles from the hairpin to the camp gateway.
