Training Before Camp
Aquatics, Climbing and Shooting Sports Training

All Aquatics, Climbing and Shooting Sports Leadership Team members are scheduled to start on May 31 for two days of required area trainings prior to the start of Staff Week on June 2.  Please contact your Camp Directors in you have a conflict.

New Trainings are required in 2013

Changes to the National Camp Accreditation Program have added new required trainings for staff. Completion certificates will be required of all staff members when reporting for staff week. 

CPR/First Aid Training

Why do we ask for this training? National Camp Accreditation requires that 50% of our staff be current in CPR/First Aid. We have found that many of you, from past camp experiences, training within your local Scout Unit, school classes and general interest in the medical field, are currently trained in CPR/First Aid.  By submitting your training certificates you will help Peaceful Valley and Tahosa meet the national requirement.  A course will be offered during staff week, if needed, for a nominal fee.
