Longs Peak Council Policies
First Aid Certification Required
For Scout Units interested in using the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch, Chimney Park Scout Camp or Camp Patiya, an adult attending with the unit must be curremtly certified in First Aid and CPR. A copy of the first aid and CPR certifications must be presented when making a reservation at any of these camps. Without the certifications, verification of a reservation cannot be made. Certification may be from any recognized community agency: American Red Cross, National Safety Council, etc.
The rationale for the requirement of first aid certification is simply that both facilities are a significant distance from emergency assistance; and in the event of an accident, injury or illness, proper first aid treatment could be critical. As Scouts and Scouters we must always Be Prepared for emergencies and a first aid trained adult certainly is a minimum standard to be followed. During the summer camp season, at the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch, it is a state of Colorado (Department of Human Services) requirement that any group taking a hike of any kind must have an adult certified in first aid in attendance.
Canoe Rental Notice
CANOE RENTAL PROGRAM SUSPENDED
Because of high damage and equipment loss costs in recent years, the
council canoe rental program is being suspended indefinitely until it has
been fully evaluated by the Risk Management Committee. Once this is
accomplished, should the program be continued, it may be done with
new operational rules and leader training. In addition, higher rental costs
may be implemented to make-up for insurance deductibles and equipment
