Adult Leader Registration Guidelines for Scout Resident Camp

In order to ensure the safety and security of all participants at camp this summer, the BSA, New York State, and the Twin Rivers Council have established training and registration requirements for all adults accompanying Scouts to resident camp at Rotary Scout Reservation or Camp Wakpominee.  This includes any adults who spend a night in camp or who provide daytime “shift” supervision for the Scouts.  (These requirements do not apply to short term visitors to camp.):

  • ALL ADULTS (18+) accompanying Scouts to resident camp must be cleared by the NYS DCJS Sex Offender Registry.
  • ALL ADULTS (18+) accompanying Scouts to resident camp must hold current certification in BSA Youth Protection training.
  • ALL ADULTS (18+) accompanying Scouts to resident camp for 72 HOURS OR MORE must be currently registered as an adult leader with the Boy Scouts of America, including the completion of a criminal background check.  The 72 hours need not be consecutive for this standard to apply.

These requirements must ALL be completed prior to the adult's arrival at camp.  Parents and adult leaders who do not meet these requirements will not be permitted to stay in camp.  Please help us avoid this difficult and awkward situation by ensuring that all adults are registered prior to camp.

Again, these requirements do not apply to short term visitors, such as the guests who attend the Parents' Night BBQ and campfire.

To enable us to verify the required information prior to summer camp, all units are asked to use the Google Forms linked below to register every adult that may accompany the Scouts to camp.  It takes less than a minute to enter each adult’s information.  Please submit any adult that may possibly spend time at camp.  Don't wait to confirm the camp plans of any specific adult.  Just register every possible adult now.  There is no cost and no harm done in submitting an adult who ultimately may not participate, but it may not be possible to register last minute additions in time.  

In addition to the unit's expected team of adult leaders, please consider adding parents, particularly those of younger Scouts, who might decide at the last minute that they want to spend a night at camp to share in their child's experience or to alleviate homesickness.

Please submit all adult registration information via the Google Form linked to below by JUNE 1.  Please notify your camp director directly if you need to add adults after this date.

Note: When registering adults, please do not use placeholder dates (such as 00/00/0000) for unknown dates of birth or training.  Gather and enter only accurate information to help facilitate the verification process.  

Thank you for your assistance with this process!
