A Rockin’ Great Time!

Get set for fun, adventure and a whole lot of new experiences at Mayflower Council’s themed, week-long camps! Programs developed especially for boys and girls entering grades 2-5 in the fall of 2021. The camps run for one full week Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm. Campers enjoy traditional Scouting games and achievement opportunities from archery, BB instruction by Certified Staff members and nature to fishing, swimming and outdoor camp skills. Extended day programs and sibling discounts available.

All of our camps are led by seasoned, trained Camp and Program Directors who have been certified by the BSA’s rigorous National Camping School. Additionally, all of our camps have health officers, are inspected by a Day Camp Inspection Team approved by the Boy Scouts of America, are licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and accredited by the American Camp Association. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun and exciting program for our camper. Give your children a summer to remember!

Does my child need a medical form?
Every child attending Adventure Day Camp is required to bring a BSA Health and Medical Record, parts A & B to camp with them on the first day.

Very Important! Every camper must bring a completed medical form with them to the first day of camp. DO NOT MAIL THE MEDICAL FORM TO CAMP OR THE MAYFLOWER OFFICE! We are required by the Boy Scouts of America to accept this form only. We CANNOT accept the doctors print out. All immunization dates MUST be completed on the BSA form and signed by a parent/guardian.

These forms must be retained by camp, so keep a copy at home for use at other activities. Campers who must take medication while at camp must also have the authorization section of the form completed.

Should my child bring a lunch?
Each child is expected to provide their own lunch. The lunch should be brown bag style. We do not have access to on-site refrigeration; it is strongly recommended not to use any mayonnaise products in your child’s lunch. Please do not bring coolers. Plenty of water will be provided during the day’s activities. Be sure to mark lunch boxes with your camper’s name. There is no lunch to purchase this year.

What should I pack for my child’s week at camp?
All of the equipment needed for the various activities that campers will take part in during the day is provided. Campers will only need to bring a few items with them each morning. Please make sure that all personal items are labeled with your camper’s name and hometown. This makes it much easier to identify lost items. What To Bring /What Not To Bring

What if my child needs medication?
All medication must be turned in to the camp health officer upon arrival at camp. It must be in its original packaging with the original prescription label in tact. Authorization to administer medication must be given by signing the appropriate section of the camp medical form. Medications may only be administered by the camp health officer. Exceptions may be made for asthma inhalers and similar medications at the discretion of the camp health officer. Medicines can be sent with the camper on Monday and picked up by the parent on Friday.

What is the camp’s No-Show/Dismissal policy?
Parents are requested to contact the camp at 978-779-5514 in the event that your camper will not be able to attend camp for one or more days. The camp staff will not release a camper into the custody of any person except the parent or legal guardians whose names appear on the camp medical form without written authorization from the parent or legal guardian. If your camper is getting a ride home from another parent including a volunteer staff member we must receive that request in writing.

What do I do if I need to pick my camper up early from camp?
We ask that you contact the camp at 978-779-5514 in advance by telephone or in writing. This will allow minimal disruption to our program. For the safety of our campers, any early dismissals must be before 3:30pm to minimize the volume of moving vehicles in the parking lot.

The camp is located at 129 Hudson Road in Bolton, Massachusetts. E. Paul Robsham Scout Reservation is owned and operated by the Mayflower Council.
