Short-Term Camp Administration

What is a Short-Term Camp?

A short-term camp is any council-organized overnight camping program, whether one-time or continuing, that is one, two or three nights in length where the council or its agents provide the staffing and may provide program and food services, and includes camps conducted off council properties. National training courses are subject to the short-term camp requirements, regardless of format or duration.

As subsets of the council, “council-organized” also includes any district level programs.

BSA National Camp Standards

The National camp standards evaluate the facility, staff, and program. All 3 of these areas MUST considered when assessing short term camps.
