What is a Short-Term Camp?

Effective January 1, 2021

A short-term camp is any council-organized overnight camping program, whether one-time or continuing, that is one, two or three nights in length where the council or its agents provide the staffing and may provide program and food services, and includes camps conducted off council properties. National training courses are subject to the short-term camp requirements, regardless of format or duration.

Short-Term Camp Administrator Job Description:  Each short-term camp must have a short-term camp administrator. This person is responsible for ensuring that the planned camp complies with the NCAP Short-term Camp Standards.  This means walking the property to ensure that it is appropriate for the event; ensuring that paperwork is filed and any written BSA approvals are completed and obtained through the council; confirms facilities and program are safe and in good order before starting operation; and that appropriate health, safety and sanitation provisions are made.  This individual also ensures that all activities at the short-term camp comply with the applicable BSA National Camp Standards.

In order to meet the needs of Short-Term Camp Administrators in our council we are conducting this certification course for the very first time on Saturday, March 6, 2021 It is our plan as of now to conduct this in person at the Council Service Center, however if the Protocols of COVID 19 restrict us from in person we will conduct via ZOOM. 

Regarding the cost of this certification:  Please note that $55.00 goes to the Outdoor Programs Department at National Office and $5.00 is for a sandwich at lunch.
