Boy Scouts of America

FIRST AID CERTIFICATION REQUIRED

For Scout Units interested in using the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch, Camp Patiya or Chimney Park Scout Camp, remember that an adult attending with the Unit must trained in first aid and CPR. A copy of the first aid and CPR certification must be presented when making a reservation at these camps. Without the certification, 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 & CPR 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.
