The last date for registration has passed.


There is a new National Policy, which takes effect January 1, 2021: A short-term camp is any council or district-organized overnight camping program, whether one-time or continuing, that is one, two or three nights in length where the council or its agents (volunteers) provide the staffing and may provide program and food services, and includes camps conducted off council properties. This includes Camporees, Klondike derbies, family camping, Webelos Woods, overnight training courses like Wood Badge, NYLT, IOLS, and BALOO and OA events. Each short-term camp must be administered by a short-term camp administrator, who must participate in an 8 hour training.

These changes are designed to help councils now elevate short term camps to new levels of excellence in delivering Scouting’s promise to youth by applying the same standards and process that have been used for years for long term/resident camps. Councils will engage in a rigorous review of camps and properties, continuous improvement, and correction or elimination of substandard practices.

Will you be part of the organization of a short-term camp?

Golden Empire Council will provide 2 of the short term camp administration trainings via ZOOM:

Tuesday and Thursday, November 17 and 19, 5:30PM to 10 PM (must attend both nights for credit) 


Saturday December 5, 8:30 AM-6 PM. (single class session)

This training will include all of the information from the national syllabus and our Council’s data collection and assessment process.
