Policies and Procedures
Below is a selected list of our policies and procedrues. A more detailed list can be found in the Leader Guidebook.
- Every participant must provide a copy of their annual health and medical form to be kept on file after they leave. Forms may be copied in the program center for 10¢ per copy.
- Parts A & B are required for all Scouts & Adults attending 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.
- The above requirements are those of the State of Wisconsin and the Boy Scouts of America.
Dining Hall Procedures
- Members of each Super Den will rotate as “waiters” to set and clean up tables before and after each meal.
- Meals are served cafeteria style and will conclude with necessary announcements and a song.
- All meals have main entrées, sides, cereal at breakfast, fruit or vegetables and pb&j and a salad bar at dinner. Menus will be available online soon.
- Everyone in camp will gather in front of the dining hall behind their Super Den flag before entering the dining hall. Please remain off of the porch at that time. The camp staff will greet you there and grace will be said.
- Everyone should wear the official Cub Scout uniform to all evening meals.
Please notify us of any special dietary needs or restrictions two weeks before your arrival using the “Special Diet Request” form.
- A shower house is located in the campsite area. There are separate facilities for men, women, and youth. Additional showers for adults are available in the Program Center.
- You need to bring all your own toiletries. All of the campers will be responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of these facilities during their stay at camp.
- Available 24 hours a day in the lower level of the Mark Program Center.
- For medication disbursement, the Health Office will be open a half-hour before and after each meal, and one hour prior to taps. Individual arrangements can be made if necessary. Please ensure that your Scouts are responsible in this matter. We recommended that one Leader be responsible for ensuring Scouts receive their meds when they are supposed to.
- If the Health Officer is not in the Health Office, report to the camp office for assistance.
