CAMP

It is suggested that you eat supper before you arrive at camp.

Check-in will open at 5 PM Friday at the Admin Building. (look for signs)

You will be directed to the campsite where your unit will be camping. Unless your group is particularly large you will almost certainly be in a campsite with other units. Anticipate this, organize the campsite accordingly. Communicate and cooperate with one another.


Traffic flow on the camp road is one way.

This is necessary in order to keep from blocking the road.


ONLY ONE VEHICLE PER CAMPSITE WILL BE ALLOWED INTO CAMP AT ANY ONE TIME.

When it is your turn get our stuff unloaded and your car returned to the parking lot as quickly as possible. Do not leave your car in camp while you set up. Registered leaders are responsible to enforce compliance with this policy for parents associated with their pack. Please respect this BSA guideline and Camp McKee policy and understand that it is concern for the safety of everyone that these guidelines exist.

  • There is water available at the campsites.
  • You will need to bring your own tents, food, cooking equipment, dining fly or tarp, sleeping gear, personal items, and whatever other equipment as you choose.
  • Refer to the WEBELOS program handbook for a list of suggested equipment. Be prepared for cool or wet weather. Part of the program involves hiking a trail. Wear suitable shoes or boots.
  • Plan camp activities so the scouts complete advancement: pitching tents, planning menus, cooking.
  • Use the fire ring in the camp, or elevated fire stands if you choose. Liquid fuels and the equipment using them are to be used and handled only by adults. Also, there is wood down all around camp that can be gathered and used.
  • Cook as a den using simple menus. Keep Saturday’s lunch quick and simple: soup, sandwiches.
  • Leave your bagged garbage in the receptacles in each camp. You are responsible for cleaning up your site when you leave.

There will be a Scout’s Own religious service on Sunday.

You are invited join us in worship. If you wish to participate contact Gerry Gevedon, preferably in advance.


We hope you will enjoy your weekend in the out-of-doors at one of the more picturesque Boy Scout camps around. Help us make this weekend something special for all of us.


Absolutely no alcoholic beverages allowed. BSA and the Blue Grass Council have a zero tolerance policy on the matter of alcohol.


If you have special needs or requests contact Gerry Gevedon as far in advance as possible.
