For Scouts interested in enrolling in the SCUBA class being held on Friday morning or Friday afternoon:
Underwater Adventures D.C. (UADC) is providing the SCUBA experience and requires the first two forms below. The first form, Discover SCUBA UADC, includes the PADI Medical Questionnaire and liability release agreement. The second form, the DSD Registration Form, is also required. If any of the questions on the PADI Medical Questionnaire are answered YES, then the participant MUST ALSO complete the third form, Medical Statement, which MUST be reviewed and signed by a physician. The camp nurse cannot sign this form, and the camp medical form you are already bringing to camp will not be sufficient. If you answer NO to each question on the PADI Medical Questionnaire, the Medical Statement is not required.
Scouts who have completed the work for Family Life merit badge can schedule an appointment with the merit badge counselor to have it signed off. See Family Life for more information.
Camp fees for 2018 have been updated. The fee is $267 per Scout registered April 30 or earlier, and $288 thereafter. The fees for adults and Eagle Corps Scouts remain the same as in 2017.
Checks for camp fees are to be mailed to a new address this year.
The Boy Scouts of America has released a new Youth Protection Training program for all adult leaders. The new training is more comprehensive and relevant, and will better prepare adults to recognize, respond to, and report possible child abuse.
All adults currently registered with the BSA must receive the new training before October 1, 2018. After June 1, 2018, any adult accompanying a Scouting unit on an activity for 72 total hours or more must be registered as an adult leader and receive the new training. Furthermore, it is the policy of the Hudson-Delaware LDS Regional Scout Encampment that all adults attending camp must take Youth Protection Training regardless of the duration of their stay.
You can take the new training now by visiting my.scouting.org. By October 1, 2018, all adult leaders must update to the new training, regardless of when their previous training was scheduled to expire. For more information, see here (PDF).
Registration is now open. Click here to view the registration instructions.
Beginning June 1, 2018, all adults accompanying a Boy Scout troop to a residence camp or other Scouting activity, who are present for three or more nights, must be registered with the BSA as a leader, including completion of a criminal background check and youth protection training, even if they are the parent of a youth on the trip.
