Camp Don Dining Hall  Blog 

As you all know, we have started the construction on the new Dining Hall.  To keep you abreast on what’s going on, we have created a “Blog” for you to visit periodically.  We will update you on construction and have pictures so you can see the progress being made.  Take a look at the blog today.

Injury Reporting 

Unit-level volunteers must report to the council any incident that requires treatment beyond Scout rendered first aid.  If, say, a cut finger or a twisted ankle is treated on site, no report is needed.  If a cut finger requires a visit to the doctor and stitches, the report must be submitted along with any relevent photographs, doctors’ forms etc.  The incident form is located at the link below or on our web site in the forms (safety) section.

2013 Bsa Lifeguard Training  NEW

We are offering a BSA Lifeguard Training on May 18th at Camp Don Harrington.  The last day to register is May 3!  If you plan on attending or know someone who is, they must register ASAP. This training has been listed on the website for some time so this is your last opportunity before the Summer!
