Health and Saftey
RSR employs a trained medical professional as a camp health officer; available at all times to provide first aid services to any camper, visitor, or staff member. The majority of health concerns and first aid needs are minor and handled at the health office. In the event a camper requires further medical treatment, designated contacts will be immediately notified by the camp director.
RSR complies with local, state, federal, and Boy Scout of America standards and regulations. Medications need to be brought to camp in their original container.
RSR places the utmost importance on maintaining the safety and security of our campers, unit leaders, visitors, and staff. RSR staff has been trained to respond to a variety of potential situations that can arise at camp. Campers’ and unit leaders’ cooperation and preparedness are essential to RSR resolving any situation calmly and safely. Unit leaders and campers will be briefed on emergency procedures when they arrive for check-in. However, please review the instructions with your unit adults and Scouts, and ask any questions when you check in.
In an emergency situation, RSR uses 2 different signals; an intermittent siren and a continuous siren.
If the emergency siren is activated, all campers, adults, and guests must report immediately to the dining hall. Once there the Scoutmaster and SPL must take a head count and report to RSR staff. Follow all instructions given by RSR staff promptly.
An emergency procedures sheet will be distributed to unit leaders at check in. Upon arrival, please review the sheet with other unit leaders and Scouts in camp. It is extremely important that all adults and campers follow the directions of RSR staff during any emergency.
