Be Prepared

  1. Have Health & Medical Record Form filled out in advance
  2. Know what to bring and what not to bring
  3. Know when to Check-In and Check-Out

Health & Medical Record Form

Why do I need these?

  • The Boy Scouts of America recommends that all youth and adult members have annual medical evaluations by a certified and licensed health-care provider.
  • All Cub Scouts, parents and siblings must complete a Health & Medical Record Form.
  • Parts A & B are to be completed annually and brought to Akela's World.
  • State law requires all medication to be turned in at medical checks (during the check-in process) to the Health Officer in the original prescription labeled container. To ensure a faster check-in have a Scout medication form already filled out for each scout taking medication.
  • Bee sting medication, inhalers, an insulin syringe or other medication or device used in the event of life-threatening situations may be carried by a camper or staff member but should be brought to medical checks.

Akela's World Check-In/Out

Check-In Process

  1. Arrive between 1:00 and 1:30 pm with your entire Pack or Den ready to check in. Have your health forms accessible at arrival. A staff member will greet you in the parking lot and guide you through the check-in process.
  2. Visit the Dining Hall for “table waiter” briefing and medical checks.
  3. Tour the main camp area.
  4. Your group will be assigned to a “Super Den.” Move into your Densite and unpack. Please fill each tent one at a time: four youth to a large tent, two adults to a small tent (unless married, men and women cannot share a tent).
  5. Be ready for your first program at 3:30 PM.

Check-Out Process

  1. Following your final breakfast and slideshow you will be dismissed. Pack up your gear and pick up litter in and around your densite.
  2. Designate one adult to collect patches, slideshows, pay remaining fees, and turn in evaluations in the camp office before you leave.


Den Sites

  • Campers stay in your own tent or a camp tent or provided canvas wall tents, with wooden floors to keep campers off the ground.

  • Campers are provided a mat to sleep on. Adults sleep in separate tents from Scouts on cots. Male and female adults will sleep separately unless married.
  • If a camper has any special medical needs that may require wheelchair access or electricity, please contact Michael or Scott prior to your arrival at camp to make sure that is incorporated into the campsite assignments.
