The Resident Camp Guide is the main source for all information regarding summer camp programs, camp policies and procedures, maps, and much more. This document also includes all of the required registration forms and camper paperwork. While much of this information is also available on the website, the Resident Camp Guide is a convenient document with everything in one place that can be brought to a troop meeting, emailed to other leaders and parents, and brought to camp.

Each Scout and adult leader staying at camp overnight must submit a completed Annual Health and Medical Record upon arrival to camp. Parts A, B, and C of this form must be completed. This form requires a health history, parent or guardian signature, and a medical examination signed by a licensed physician within the last 12 months regardless of the 72 hour National Policy our Camping Committee requires if more than one day on council property we will require a medical form signed by a physician. This is the only form that can be accepted - school or sports medical forms cannot take the place of the BSA form. Note: This is the new BSA medical form, the old "Class 1, 2, 3" forms can no longer be accepted.

All leaders arriving at camp at some time other than check-in must register at the Administration Building and get a camp identification bracelet. It is also important that any leader being replaced signs out, as we must know who is at camp at all times.
All visitors must sign in and sign out at the Camp Office and wear a camp ID bracelet. Any visitor who has not registered may be asked to leave camp. It is important for safety that we know who is visiting our camp and when. Visitors who intend to eat a meal at camp must purchase a meal ticket at the camp office.
In accordance with BSA policy and safety regulations, personal vehicles are not permitted in camp. Exceptions are made for adults that have a valid state-issued handicap pass. The parking lot is clearly marked and just outside the entrance to camp. Only emergency and maintenance vehicles will be allowed to park at the Administration Building. The Ranger staff will haul camper's gear to their campsites upon arrival. This policy is for the safety of all campers. Parents who might be visiting camp should be made aware of this important policy. We appreciate your cooperation in parking only in designated areas.
Cub World is a non-smoking facility. Smoking or tobacco use in front of any camper, leader, or staff member is strictly prohibited. The only designated smoking area in camp is at the bridge closest to the river in the treeline behind the dining pavailion. Alcoholic beverages are never permitted on Boy Scout property. Please help the camp enforce these rules by making sure all leaders and parents in your troop are aware of this policy.
A few camp rules apply for the safety and comfort of all campers:
Parents need to be prepared for summer camp so they know what to expect and how the camp operates. Scouts' parents should be aware of the camp policies and procedures.
Mail to campers is welcome and encouraged. It will be distributed daily to at lunchtime. Mail service can sometimes take a few days to arrive, so be sure to plan accordingly. Mail should be addressed to:
Pack # and camp area
6035 Price Rd.
Loveland, OH 45140
There is phone service at camp, but only emergency calls are accepted for campers. The emergency phone number for Cub World is (513) 831-8311.
Campers are discouraged from making calls home, as this tends to disrupt the pack program. If one of the pack leaders believes that it is necessary for your son to call home, permission will be granted. An adult leader must accompany a Scout while he uses the phone. Please do not allow your son to bring a cell phone to camp.
Parents and other visitors are always welcome to observe the programs and facilities at Cub World. Since the pack has a schedule of activities planned, visitors should check with pack leaders before arriving to find an appropriate time to visit. All visitors are required to sign-in at the Camp Office upon arrival and will be given a visitor wristband to wear.
Guest meals at camp are always available. Meal tickets can be purchased at the Camp Office: breakfast is $5, lunch is $6, and dinner is $7. Children 6 and under eat free.
With the exception of Fun with Son participants, family camping is not permitted at Cub World. The only children under 18 permitted to stay overnight are registered Cub Scouts with a pack. Family members who wish to stay overnight are encourage to find motel accommodations in the Milford and Loveland area.
In order to release a camper prior to the last evening of camp, an Early Release form for the Scout must be submitted upon arrival at camp. If it is not on file with in the camp office at the time of release, all Scouts leaving camp will be required to be signed out personally by a pack leader. There are no exceptions to this policy.
