General Information
Check in/Check out: Please check in with Ranger upon your arrival. If your arrival or departure
time changes from what was indicated on your camping application, please notify the Ranger, Bob
Foote at 281-844-6854.

As a guest of a Girl Scout property be sure to follow the motto of “Leave a place better than you found
it.” We expect that of you and your group. If a site is not in good condition upon leaving we will be in
touch with you to either return to clean or may be charged an additional fee for cleaning.
Upon departure fill out and hand in the Camping Report and Checklist to the Ranger, or leave it in
the box on the back porch of the Ranger’s House.

Specialized Activities: During specialized activities such as Archery, Canoe, Kayaking, Sailing, Zip
line and Low Ropes; you must provide the participants in your group with the appropriately trained
personnel. In order to use the equipment, you must reserve it in advance to insure that you will have
the opportunity to use it during your stay.
Telephone: There are phones located in the Program Center 410-479-2101 and Lakeview Lodge
410-479-1530. All long distance calls must be made collect or by personal calling card.

Equipment: Basic program equipment is stored in the cupboards in the kitchen shelters of tent and
Adirondack units. Equipment for Lakeview Lodge and Choptank Lodge is kept in the indoor closets.
Outdoor equipment at Choptank Lodge (buckets, shovels, rakes) is kept in the closet outside the
building. Lakeview kitchen is fairly well stocked with plates, utensils etc. See the Attachment for a
completed list. Please be sure to return equipment to its proper place.

Trash Removal: All garbage must be placed in the dumpster located at the Program Center
before leaving camp. Please provide your own garbage bags. Place your recyclables (glass and
aluminum) in the cans near the dumpster. Be sure all the recyclables are clean. GSCB is making
every attempt to be green.

Water: The water at Camp Todd is of high quality and is tested every year by the Public Health
Department. When the water is not used every day and sets in the pipes, rust can collect. Let the
water run for 2-3 minutes and it will clear. We recommend bringing drinking bottles and refilling
them, vs bringing cases of bottle water.

Keys: Lakeview Lodge and Choptank Lodge now have combination locks (like a real estate lock box).
Please refer to your confirmation letter from Council for the access code. Inside the box will be the
key to the door.

Vehicles: Drive slow. Due to the layout of Camp Todd, there is no need to have a vehicle in the
unit area for emergency. Hideaway, Choptank, Lakeview and Whispering Pines, all have their
own parking areas which are located within seconds of the units. The same is true for the
Program Center, Shady Cove, Tall Timbers and Canvas Back. The main parking area is only a
few seconds from each of the shelters, so there is no need to have a vehicle parked at the shelter
for emergency reasons. By having all the cars parked in the parking lots provided, it leave the unit
areas free for guest, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles.

Floors: The vinyl floors are to be swept and mopped using water and a SMALL amount of
cleaner. (The Ranger is responsible for heavy-duty cleaning and waxing of the floors). The
carpeted areas of Lakeview Lodge must be vacuumed before leaving. The vacuum is in the
kitchen closet.

Windows: Close and lock all windows and doors before leaving.

In an Emergency: Call 911 first. Then contact Camp Todd’s Ranger at 281-844-6854 or if on-site
Ranger cannot be reached, call Camp Grove Point Ranger at 410-200-8767. Your emergency contact
person should begin to make their contacts. They will begin the Council’s Crisis Communication Plan.
Health Care and Treatment: Please be sure to have the names and addresses of all participants in
your party as well as the emergency contact numbers, names and signed permission to treat or seek
treatment of all minors in your group. Be aware of any medical concerns such as allergies. Know your
group’s required treatment, restrictions and other accommodations needed. Place all First Aid and
Medical supplies in a safe and secure place. All prescription and nonprescription drugs should be kept in
a locked area until needed. All groups must have at least one adult currently trained in FA/CPR from a
nationally recognized provider (such as the American Red Cross, etc.)
Insurance: Be sure that you have the necessary insurance coverage for your stay.
Leave No Trace: Please do not carve on trees, bunks or buildings and no graffiti, please. If you would
like to paint or carve on things found in nature please bring them with you from home and take them
when you go.
Camping Standards
Please note that the standards given are established rules or principles intended to serve as a model
or example. These standards apply to all groups using Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Council
sites, including Council Troops, out-of-Council Troops and Non-Girl Scout groups. If you have any
further questions, please contact the Camp and Event Registrar at the Newark Resource Center,
302-456-7150 ext. 7182 or 800-341-4007 ext. 7182.

GSCB Site Use Standards
Supervision: You are responsible for your group’s supervision and behavior while on property.
Troop Camping Report: ALL troops are responsible for turning in their report either at check-out
with the Ranger or Liaison or by forwarding them to Council. This information is VITAL; we need to
know if repairs are necessary as well as keeping track of equipment damage and needs. Please
do your part and turn your report in. This will enable Troops to have the best camping experience
possible.
Leave at Home: The following are NOT PERMITTED on Council campsites:
 Pets    Trailers     Power Saws Gasoline Lanterns, Stoves or Heaters
          Alcoholic Beverages  Narcotics  Firearms
Smoking: Smoking is prohibited in all of the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay buildings.
Smoking will be allowed in designated outdoor smoking areas only. Please refrain from smoking
in the presence of children. Smoke in fire circles only. DO NOT LEAVE CIGARETTE BUTTS IN
FIRE CIRCLE.
Candles are NOT permitted on camp properties, except for during candle ceremonies.
Emergency Contact Person: Must have all appropriate names and phone numbers of those who
are in your party. All parties at home should have the Emergency Contact Person’s phone number
to reach them while they are away. The Emergency Contact Person will be responsible for
contacting 911, all family members of those involved in the emergency and the Ranger. The
Ranger will need to know the location of the incident, parties involved and what happened.
Conservation: Leave moss, wild flowers and other living things growing in their own areas. Do not
sweep the paths in and around units. Leaves and twigs serve as ground cover and protection from
erosion. Do not line the paths with rocks. Do not dig holes or trenches on any Council sites.
Equipment: All units have standard equipment provided see “Troop Checklist” for unit inventory”.
Do not move equipment from one site to another. If you move equipment WITHIN a site, such as
mattresses, tables and the like put it back before you leave camp.
                C:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\b4b156a2-9d4c-4907-86d9-06942fa85d19.doc7/08, 8/08, 2/09; 11/09; 9/10; 9/11
Fireplaces: Make sure your fireplace damper is open. Before you light your fire, roll up a sheet or
two of newspaper and light one end. Hold lighted newspaper in the flue to warm the chimney. The
open damper causes convection (hot air rising) and your fireplace won’t smoke. Do not use water
to put out fires in fireplaces. Water on hot stone or brick causes it to crack. Plan your last use of
the fireplace to allow the fire to die and completely cool before you clean out the ashes. Ashes
should be put outside in the ash can. The fire must be attended to AT ALL TIMES.
Fire Circles: A fire circle is available at most units. Do not build fires except in established fire
circles. Girls and adults should follow all fire circle safety procedures when a fire is being used.
Sprinkle with water and stir with a stick to put the fire DEAD OUT. Leave burned wood in fire circle
and do not remove ashes. The next camping group or the Ranger will decide if ashes need to be
removed. Please make a notation on your checkout form if the ash can needs to be emptied. The
Ranger may limit the building of fires during very dry weather. The fire must be attended to AT
ALL TIMES.
Disposal of Ashes: If your site’s ash can is full, please contact the ranger and let him dispose of
the ashes for you.
Wood Supply: USE ONLY WHAT YOU NEED. Replenish enough tinder, kindling, and fuel for one
fire for the next group of campers.

Food and Equipment: Troops should bring their own kitchen equipment. Be sure that EVERY-
THING brought to camp is packed when you are preparing to leave. Clean out refrigerators.

Dishwashing: If you are a Girl Scout group, please remember to use the three-basin method of
dishwashing. Be sure plates are scraped clean before they are put in the dishwater. Start with hot
soapy water, do a warm rinse and cold sanitizer with (capful of bleach to 1-gallon cold water).
Dump rinse water down the sinks provided at the unit. Be sure to clean the sinks out before you
leave.
Disinfecting Mattresses: This procedure is required by the State and County Health
Departments. Procedure to follow upon arrival: wipe each plastic-covered mattress with Clorox
wipes or other disinfecting wipes. For situations involving a bed wetter: The mattress must be
disinfected before leaving camp. Mattresses are to be stored on their side in adirondack units
and flat in the tent units.
Visitors: If you are expecting visitors, please let the Ranger know in advance. Visitors must park
their cars in the parking lot, not at the unit.
Lanterns: Please check with the Ranger for battery operated lanterns if you are staying at a site
without electricity.
Bathrooms: Clean bathrooms upon arrival at the campsite, each morning and just before leaving
the site.
 A disinfectant is to be used daily to scrub lids, seats and floors.
 Lids and doors should be kept closed at all times, except during drying period.
 An agent to promote the bacterial decomposition process will be added to latrines as needed by
  the Ranger.
 Only toilet paper and human waste is to be put in the latrine.
 Please provide paper bags for feminine hygiene products to be placed in garbage cans.
 Please do not put feminine hygiene products, of any nature, or the paper bags in the latrine.
 Toilet paper is to be provided by the group using the unit.

Care of the Tents: Do not use aerosol sprays (deodorant, insect repellent, hair, etc.) in or near
tents. They destroy the waterproofing.
 Do not use pins in canvas. Pinholes become leaks. DO NOT WRITE ON TENTS.
 Loosen guy lines when it rains to offset tent shrinkage.
 Do not remove ropes from tents.

                 C:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\b4b156a2-9d4c-4907-86d9-06942fa85d19.doc7/08, 8/08, 2/09; 11/09; 9/10; 9/11
 Roll platform tent flaps down at least once a day so mice will not nest or chew holes in the tent
  fabric.
 Platform tent door flaps should be tied with a half bow when you leave. Do not tie corners or flaps
  to beds.
 Some platform tents have mats and/or beds. Be sure you leave them as you found them.
 All borrowed tents must be swept clean and COMPLETELY DRY before they are returned.
  Setting metal tent spikes on the wet fabric causes rust and holes on the tent surface.
A Girl Scout is Courteous: When walking through or visiting other units in camp ask permission
and please do not interrupt their program. This is someone else’s home for the weekend.

Parents Bringing Campers to Camp: Please make certain that the parents driving your girls to
camp know the name of the unit you will be staying in and your Troop number. This will save the
Ranger from searching camp trying to locate the proper unit and Troop. The Ranger is not
responsible for towing emergencies should a car be stuck or need service. Please call a local
towing service if you need assistance.
Curfew: All units must be completely quiet by 11:00P.M. Remember, voices carry at night.

Tick Bites and Lyme Disease
Not all ticks carry Lyme disease. Primarily a small type of tick found around wooded and grassy areas
spreads the disease. Proper clothing and frequent checks for ticks can prevent tick bites. Signals of
Lyme disease might develop slowly and might not occur at the same time as a rash. You can have
Lyme disease without developing a rash.
Signals
   Rash starts as a small red area at the site of the bite; may appear a few
    days or a few weeks after the bite.
   Fair skin: The center may be lighter in color and the outer edges are red
    and raised (bulls eye appearance.)
   Dark Skin: The area may look black and blue.
   Fever, headache, weakness.
   Flu-like joint and muscle pain.

                                             Care
                                                 Grasp tick with fine-tipped tweezers close to skin and pull slowly.
                                                  Use plastic wrap, paper, or leaf if you do not have tweezers.
                                                 DO NOT try to burn tick off. DO NOT apply petroleum jelly or
                                                  nail polish to tick.
                                                 If you can not remove tick, or if its mouthparts remain imbedded,
                                                  get medical care.
                                                 Wash bite area with soap and water. Apply antibiotic ointment.

How to Beat Those Little Critters
   Wear long sleeved shirts and long pants.
   Tuck your pant legs into your socks or boots.
   Wear light-colored clothing to make it easier to see tiny
    insects or ticks.
   Use a rubber band or tape to hold pants against socks,
    so that nothing can get under clothing.
   When hiking in woods and fields, stay in the middle of
    trails. Avoid underbrush and tall grass.
   If you are outdoors for a long period of time, check
    yourself several times during the day. Especially check
    in hairy areas of the body like the back of the neck and
    the scalp line.
   Inspect yourself carefully for insects or ticks after being
    outdoors, or have someone else do it.
   Wear hiking boots.
   If you will be in a grassy or wooded area for a long period
    of time, or if you know the area is highly infested with insects
    or ticks, you may want to use a repellent. Make sure to follow
    the instructions carefully.
