The following sections lay out the Boy Scouts of America’s policies on Tobacco, Alcohol, and drugs. These policies are meant to be taken very seriously. Violation of these policies may result in dismissal from camp, membership revocation, and/or police action.
Adults should support the attitude that they, as well as youth, are better off without tobacco in any form and may not allow the use of tobacco products at any BSA activity involving youth participants. This includes the use of electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, or electronic nicotine delivery systems that simulate tobacco smoking.
All Scouting functions, meetings, and activities should be conducted on a smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants. Use of all tobacco products (including E-cigarettes and chewing tobacco) must be done out of sight of all youth participants in designated areas within camp. Contact the camp Commissioner if you have any questions about where these areas are.
It is the policy of the Boy Scouts of America that the use of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances is not permitted at encampments or activities on property owned and/or operated by the Boy Scouts of America, or at any activity involving participation of youth members.
Illegal drugs, including the misuse of prescription drugs have absolutely no place at any Scouting function. The misuse of drugs happens in all levels of our society. We may be confronted with the problem at any time; therefore, we need to understand the misuse of drugs and what can be done about the situation. See the Drug Enforcement Administration website (www.dea.gov/) for detailed information on controlled substances and their effects.
It is unacceptable for anyone to use or be under the influence of medical marijuana at or during any Scouting activity. Any marijuana possession is illegal in the State of West Virginia.
Technology use is not discouraged at Camp. Participants s are encouraged to appropriately document and share their experiences during their stay. The site offers full wireless and cell phone connectivity. AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots are available throughout the Scott Summit Center and base camps. Outlets and charging stations are available in select locations in base camp and/or the Scott Summit Center, however a battery back-up or solar charger is strongly recommended.
