Introduction to Camp

Bartlett Scout Reservation is a well-designed, classic-set camp with over 50 campsites nestled among tall pines and quaking aspen trees surrounding a well-stocked lake in southeastern Idaho. Established in 1964 with a rich history of folklore and legend, Bartlett Scout Reservation is the Standard for Scouting Adventure!

Situated on 640 acres, the facility provides premium outdoor experiences for all age groups!  Bartlett is located four miles off a paved road, 20 minutes from Montpelier, Idaho, and has state-of-the-art shooting sports program (shotgun, rifle shooting, and archery), climbing wall and bouldering center, and other incredible program areas for adventure and fun.  The camp has a full-service dining hall and offers over 50 different Merit Badges and advancement opportunities for Scouts and Leaders.

Non-Discrimination Clause

Bartlett Scout Reservation does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, handicap, or any other delineation of peoples.

Contact Us

We’re here to help your unit have the most memorable experience at camp. If you have any questions as you prepare for your adventure, please let us know.

General Information

Medical Forms

All campers (youth & adult) must have a current physical signed by a parent or guardian. This activity only requires parts A & B of the health form be filled out. BSA health forms are only valid for 12 months. Members of the Christian Science faith must provide the camp with a written letter from a practitioner.

National Forest Lands

Some of Bartlett Scout Reservation’s operations are on National Forest lands and are authorized under special use permit by the US National Forest and operated on a non-discriminatory basis.

Troop Insurance

Each troop is required to carry adequate and proper liability and health insurance. Please prepare to verify that each camper is protected and bring insurance cards or numbers to camp.

Swim Check

Campers that plan to swim or participate in boating activities must take a swim check. Units may choose to do their swim check prior to arriving at camp.

Leadership Roles

The role of adult leaders at summer camp is very important. In planning, supervising, teaching, and participating, their influence and support is critical. Start recruiting your leaders early and have alternates standing by. At least two registered adults are required per Troop. Usually the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster attend; however, if other adults will be bringing the Scouts to camp, start preparing them early. At least one adult must be 21 years of age or older; the other must be at least 18 years old.

True Youth Protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.

Campsite Accommodations

Small units may need to share campsites with other groups.

Duty to God

The Boy Scouts of America is an all-denominational organization, which encourages each member to actively participate in his religious beliefs and responsibilities. Bartlett Scout Reservation has a Chaplain on duty and provides a chapel for Scouts to use as individuals or groups. Grace should be said before each meal, and all campers given an opportunity to participate. Please let your Scouts know they should feel free to pray as they have been taught, and remind them of the importance of showing respect to other’s forms and traditions.

Tour Plan

Contact your local Scout Office for the proper form and further information.

Special Needs Requests

If you have special dietary needs while at camp, please let us know, in writing, sent to Bartlett Scout Reservation at least two weeks before your arrival. We are happy to meet your needs; however, if we need to order special/substitute food items, we must know in advance. All special medical conditions should be reported to the health officer upon arrival in camp.

RULES

Please understand that the purpose of camp rules is to insure the safety and convenience of all those who will be living together here at Bartlett Scout Reservation. These rules make it possible for us to safely do things we would otherwise never attempt. In a very real sense, these rules set us free.

Emergency Alarm

As part of our first flag ceremony of the week, we will demonstrate the camp’s emergency alarm. Any other alarms during the week will be real. If you hear the alarm, walk to the parade grounds at Grizzly Field, join with your Troop, and ensure all are accounted for. Further instructions will be presented at the parade grounds.

First Aid

Our Health Lodge is designed to meet the emergency needs of our campers. All injuries must be reported and properly recorded. We are ready with emergency support and will make necessary contact with the Emergency Medical System. We will store all medications that require refrigeration and will assist with dispensing if needed.

Youth Protection

The Boy Scouts of America is a leader in the fight against child abuse. We must do everything in our power to prevent physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. To protect youth and adults we must be extremely careful to follow the BSA TWO-DEEP LEADERSHIP policies. The BSA cannot tolerate any activity that can, in anyway, be interpreted as abusive. If you are aware of anything questionable, please report it at once to the Camp Director. Do not become directly involved unless there is an immediate physical threat.

Buddy System

All campers should use the buddy system at ALL times in camp.

Ecology

Animal Conservation – Please make certain that all Troop members understand the delicate balance of plant and animal life in the wilderness. Everyone should do their best to ensure that no animals are molested or killed. This applies to aquatic as well as land life.

No pets of any kind should be brought to camp. Pets are a threat to wildlife and are in danger themselves.

The vegetative life in this high mountain ecosystem is very fragile. Please make every effort to stay on trails. Do not pick flowers or collect specimens. When gathering firewood, collect only dead and down wood. Never cut down a tree, dead or alive. Bartlett Scout Reservation attempts to maintain a wood yard; check there first for needed fuel. Do not use natural materials for camp projects.

Please do all you can to prevent name carving, hammock hanging, and other acts that damage the trees.

Fire

The smallest spark is a deadly threat to wildlife and campers. No fireworks are allowed in camp or in the National Forest or Parks. All fires must be confined to the designated fire pits in each campsite.

Ax Yard and Wood Cutting

Upon arrival at your campsite, designate an area and construct an ax yard. All woodcutting must be done in this area.

Dish Washing

Cleanliness is important, even at Scout Camp! It is also an excellent preventive measure to diarrhea, tummy ache and other diseases. One of the first chores at each meal is to prepare HOT water to wash dishes. It is recommended to wash and rinse in an approved disinfectant on all dishes at each meal. Air dry your dishes and then store them in a clean dry place.

Uniforms

It is always appropriate to wear a uniform to any camp activity. It is especially encouraged for inspections, flag ceremonies, and camp-wide activities.

Firearms, Ammunition & Archery

Bartlett Scout Reservation has adequate equipment and so it is required that no firearms or ammunition be brought to camp. Sheath knives should not be brought to camp.

Bikes

Bikes are discouraged in camp. There are roads available outside of camp – but troops will need to provide their own adult supervision for excursions.

Courtesy

The campsite is your Troop home while at camp. Your Camp Friend and Commissioner are near to assist you if necessary, but the Troop’s conduct while in the site will be the unit adults’ responsibility. Please instruct your Scouts to respect the other Scouts and Troop campsites. Do not enter them unless invited. Control noise, respect quiet hours, and leave other people’s personal property alone.

Quiet Hours

We are required to provide all campers with at least nine hours of quiet time. Between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM each day we ask that you enforce this quiet period.

Smoking Policy

There are designated smoking areas, which will be shown to the adult leaders upon request. All smoking should be restricted to these areas. Bartlett Scout Reservation’s policy on smoking is the same as that of the BSA – it should always to be done with discretion and not in the presence of Scouts.

Unit Responsibilities

During the week troop leaders may want to leave camp. Bartlett Scout Reservation recommends the following if adults leave camp:

*
p<>. Adequate adult leadership remains in camp to oversee the needs of the Troop. Note: The two-deep leadership policy must always be followed.

*
p<>. Adults check out with the Camp Director so in case of an emergency the adult can be located.

Lost Camper Prevention

One should never go where they do not know and one should always take a buddy. Stay on trails, in camp, or with an experienced staff guide. No one should ever go anywhere without telling unit leaders where they are going and when they intend to return. Always be prepared with signaling device, water and food, proper clothing and shelter.

Unit leadership should report immediately if someone does not show up when and where they should. Please instruct all scouts and leaders to stop and stay put, “hug a tree”, the moment they realize they are lost.

Facilities and Equipment

The Commissioner and Scoutmaster will conduct an inventory of all campsite equipment when arriving in camp. Damage that may occur during the week will be assessed to the Troop. Report any damage as soon as it is noticed.

Bartlett Scout Reservation provides all Troops with the opportunity to avail themselves of literally hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of program equipment during a week of camp. Normal “wear and tear” of equipment is expected; however, careless or intentional mistreatment of equipment is not permitted. All campers should take care of, and have respect for, all camp wide equipment and facilities including: All shower and restroom facilities, camp wide buildings and structures, personal camp equipment belonging to others, program equipment.

Bartlett Scout Reservation is proud of its equipment and facilities. All campers are politely asked to use the equipment as intended and to have a great time in doing so.

Mail at Camp

Mail delivery to Bartlett Scout Reservation is very slow; please have parents mail letters to their scouts a week before they leave for camp if they hope to have the mail available for the boys during their week at camp. Please include troop number and the name of the person to receive the letter. Our address is:

Bartlett Scout Reservation

PO Box 250

Montpelier, ID 83254

Phone

There is no public phone available. If there is an emergency, there is an “emergency only number” at camp. This is (801) 475-7484. Please use the Troop number and name of anyone you are trying to reach when your call is placed.

Trading Post

Bartlett Scout Reservation has a great store, which provides camp gear, snacks, souvenirs, and program supplies. Some other items available are batteries, toiletries, soda, treats, and camp memorabilia.

The camp will provide each camper with a Bartlett Scout Reservation patch. The average Scout will spend between $45 and $60 during their week between Merit Badge supplies, snacks, and camp memorabilia.

Showers & Restrooms

The centralized shower house provides showers for all campers. Maintenance of the facility is the responsibility of all who use it. Report any malfunctions to the Camp Director at once. Please help everyone do their part to keep the showers clean and safe. Adults should be aware of their Troops behavior and control discipline by providing supervision while boys are in the shower. If there are any difficulties with other campers; please contact the staff.

Pit toilets are located near each campsite. Troops who share the use of each facility are all responsible for cleaning it daily. Health, safety and cleanliness are everyone’s responsibility.

Please put only paper waste in to the latrines – never any sanitary wipes or garbage.

Food Service

It is our hope to serve you well while you’re eating patrol cooking at Bartlett Scout Reservation. Our Staff is here to be of assistance to you. It is your commissary and if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Dining Hall

Friday evening’s dinner will be prepared and served to units in the main dining hall. Participants must be washed and wearing full uniform is encouraged for evening meals.

Commissary

This service provides food for your troop to prepare in your campsite. Ice is available for purchase in the commissary for $2 per bag. Each troop is advised to bring its own coolers. This will allow for items such as milk, eggs, and butter to remain cool while preparing food. Reservations for guests must be made and paid for in advance: $5 per meal.

PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES

Along with the great location and staff at Bartlett Scout Reservation, camp programs are the best anywhere! Scouts and leaders will be challenged to fit merit badge courses, free-time elective activities, and special programs into a busy week of camp. Pre-planning is essential. Check out our great programs.

Flag Ceremonies

These include songs, cheers, and a chance to show off your Troop spirit. Information concerning the day’s activities will be presented and Scouts will be able to experience patriotic ceremonies and build their appreciation for our great country.

Troop Service Projects

If desired, we provide opportunities for your Unit to do service projects while in camp. Many Troops feel this is an important part of their summer camp experience. Projects can range from very simple to more complex. Often adults with special talents can do more intricate and exacting work. The camp will tailor projects to your Troops’ age and skill. We are always looking for people who would like to help Bartlett Scout Reservation become even better. Anyone interested in joining our support team, please notify the Camp Director. All aspects of support can be used and are greatly appreciated.

Only adults that are trained in chainsaw safety, by the camp ranger, are authorized to operate a chainsaw while in camp.

Polar Bear Swim

A long-standing tradition at Bartlett Scout Reservation is the Polar Bear Swim. Participants jump in to Lake Fife and recite the Scout Oath and Law. This event will occur on Saturday morning.

Camp-Wide Games

All Troops are invited to participate in games and skill activities conducted by the staff on Saturday afternoon. This is a chance to have a positive interaction with all the other campers at Bartlett and an opportunity to build team and scout spirit.

Nature Area and Trail

Bartlett Scout Reservation offers many opportunities to discover and learn about our environment. We offer a nature trail which is set up to be staff-led or self-guided.

Fishing Program

The fishing program at Bartlett Scout Reservation is great. You can fish from the shore. Anyone wishing to fish will need to have a current Bartlett Scout Reservation fishing license. Purchase your license in the trading post. We also request that you use barbless hooks for easy release of the fish that you catch.

Campfire Programs

Camp wide campfires will be on Friday night. The staff provides a great campfire show.

Rank Advancement

The primary responsibility for rank advancement is that of the unit leaders and the unit committee. Bartlett Scout Reservation assists Unit leadership by providing the finest in instruction and counseling. Although staff instructors and counselors will provide accurate records for information covered and skill accomplished, it is the responsibility of each unit leader to mark rank advancements in each boy’s individual record (usually in his handbook). Camp counselors will also sign merit badge cards, but the Unit is responsible to ensure they are properly recorded in each boy’s permanent record.

Advancement Policies

All advancement will be in accordance with BSA National Standards. Merit badge counselors and instruction will be supervised by trained Directors, 18 years of age or older. Blue cards for completed merit badges will be provided by Bartlett Scout Reservation. Those not completing all requirements for a specific merit badge will be given partial completion slips. Boards of Review may be conducted in camp if adequate adult leadership is available. Appropriate adult representation on the board, however, is the responsibility of each Unit. The Scoutmaster, Coach, Advisors or Skipper is responsible to prepare, monitor, and verify completion of the Scout’s advancement. Preparing for each merit badge by the Scout is highly encouraged and work done before camp is acceptable. Any Scout receiving a merit badge from Bartlett Scout Reservation will know the subject matter and have learned the practical skills associated with the merit badge.

NOTE: Unit leaders are given an opportunity to review all advancement records before leaving camp and are encouraged to review them at home and give the cards to the Unit Advancement Chairman.

First-Year Camper Program

The First-Year Camper Program at Bartlett Scout Reservation is designed to provide new and young Scouts a program where they can learn basic Scout skills. Many of the skills taught will complete requirements for Tenderfoot to First Class ranks; however, we recommend that all campers participate in these activities.

Hunter Education

Since April 1, 2007, students have been required to obtain a Hunter Education Registration Certificate for $10.00 either online (https://secure.utah.gov/serv2-hflo/hflo/login) or over the counter at participating DWR license agents (http://wildlife.utah.gov/licenses/agents.php), prior to registering for a Hunter Education course.

Hunter Education course enrollment fees are $10.00. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a free 365-day basic hunting license. The license will allow a Hunter Education graduate to hunt small game during the current season. This license is also required to qualify for big game permits.

Steps for new student:

#
p<>. Obtain a Hunter Education certificate for the course at any DWR office or license agent.

#
p<>. After obtaining the certificate, begin your online course work.

#
p<>. Take the certificate and online quiz printouts to the Hunter Edu-
cation Instructor the first day of camp.

p<>. The Hunter Education card, commonly known as the “blue card,”
will be mailed to the student at the address provided on the voucher.

A couple of noteworthy items to remember:

*
p<>. Regardless of when the student graduates, all hunting regulations such as season dates and bag limits will apply.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting Tom Jensen, Shooting Sports Director, at tjense[email protected]

Step one:

The Internet hunter education course consists of two parts: the online portion and the practical exercise and testing portion. The Internet hunter education course is not easier than the standard course! The online portion takes more time than the traditional hunter education course, but the practical exercise and testing portion is usually completed in one or two days.

The online portion of the course was developed by the International Hunter Education Association, and the course is on their Web site. Please read all instructions before beginning. When you fully understand all requirements, you may begin the online portion. Your computer must be connected to a printer since you must print out section quizzes.

To successfully complete the Internet course and get your hunter education certification card, you must do all of the following:

*
p<>. Complete the Internet Introduction to Hunter Education (online), print out section quiz reports as instructed and turn them in at the beginning of the practical exercise and testing portion. Warning: Do not wait until the last minute! Plan your work time now. The online portion can take between 12 and 20 hours for most people. All questions must be answered correctly (100 per- cent) unless otherwise noted. It's okay to do the online portion with family and friends, get help and discuss the lessons. If you haven't finished the online portion, or if you lose it, you won’t be able to attend the practical exercise and testing portion; you will not be allowed to continue.

*
p<>. All students must bring a Hunter Education Registration Certificate. Students under 18 years old must have their parents or legal guardians sign the Hunter Education Registration Certificate before taking the course.

*
p<>. Memorize four basic firearm safety rules: (1) treat each firearm like a loaded firearm, (2) always control the muzzle of your firearm, (3) keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target, and (4) be sure of your target and what is beyond. There are certainly additional firearm safety rules. However, these four are basic safety rules every hunter should know and practice. You must be able to write, from memory, the four basic firearm safety rules during the practical exercise and testing portion.

*
p<>. Pre-register for and attend the entire practical exercise and testing portion. There, you must demonstrate safe gun handling and a mature and responsible attitude towards firearms, people and natural resources. Written, shooting and attitude tests are part of the practical exercise and testing portion. The written test consists of 50 questions covering a variety of hunter education subjects. Students must score 75 percent or higher to pass the course.

*
p<>. The shooting test consists of live firing with a .22 rimfire rifle at targets 50 feet from the shooter. Students must fire five practice shots at the bullseye target, 10 shots in the prone position at the squirrel target, 10 shots at the rabbit in the sitting or kneeling position and 10 shots at the rabbit target in the standing position. Fifty percent or 15 out of 30 must be in the kill zone of the two targets.

Step two:

*
p<>. Troop # and sponsoring institution

p<>. Online portion of the course (http://homestudy.ihea.com)

*
p<>. Remember to print off each online quiz report.

Bring the following to the practical exercise and testing portion of the course

*
p<>. Certificate of registration (from DWR or online receipt)

*
p<>. Completed online quiz reports

*
p<>. Pen or pencil

*
p<>. Outdoor clothes and boots. Outdoor activities will go rain or shine
