DESCRIPTION

Medical Forms required

The campsites at COI vary greatly. Windy Hill is probably the nicest campsite, but is very remote, and is a long hike to the mess hall and activities (5-10 minutes.) Oconee Camp is pretty big, and has an adult lounge/adirondack (3 sided cabin.) It is the closest camp to the Meadow, firing range (hope you don't mind waking up to shot gun blasts) and the general program/MB area.

The Greenville "A's" is a mix between Oconee and Windy Hill. Most of the campsites at COI are excellent. The only "bad" site is Hogans. It is next to windy hill, has no shade, and features small adirondacks that face each other so their is absolutely no privacy.

COI has 3 lakes. Lake 1=Swimming, Lake 2=Boating/canoeing/Fishing, Lake 3=unknown and terrifying monsters known to eat young scouts alive.

Words of warning: In order to protect camp, only camp vehicles are permitted past the parking lot. Equipment can be placed into a camp vehicle and a staff member can take it up for you, your trailer can be towed to your campsite (only certain camps have trailer access) or pack it in.

COI features Adirondack camping. Adirondacks are 3 sided cabins. These typically have an overhang to help shelter scouts/equipment from the weather. Their isn't really any tent camping @ COI unless your First/Second year scouts are going through the "Pathfinder Program" aka Green Bar Bill (or one of a dozen other names outside the BRC.) Adirondacks are definitely nicer than tents! A few cabins are available.

Attendance @ the campfires on Sunday and Friday (skits, opening/closing ceremony, troop presentations) nights is REQUIRED! The Wednesday night campfire (parent's night & OA call out ceremony, and indian dancing) is highly recommended. Historically the campfires are first rate since staff members create original skits (ala SNL) since recycling skits is frowned upon.

Fires in individual campsites is absolutely forbidden.

Finally, giving the staff member assigned to your troop a "token of appreciation" such as a troop hat or T-shirt from your unit does wonders in getting you first in line for a meal or two, and just maybe a prime checkout time.
