Rules and Policies


The following rules are to be followed at Camp Sinoquipe:

Vehicles in camp require a pass, please see the Ranger or Camp Director. You MUST first park in the parking lot and then walk to the Administration building or the designated Registration area to ask permission BEFORE you drive into camp.  

Vandalism of any sort will not be tolerated; responsible individuals and/or units will pay for any and all damages including staff time to make repairs.

Discipline is to be handled by unit leaders as needed.  If assistance is needed, please see the Camp Director.

There will always be enough leadership with the Scouts at all times while they are in groups, going to classes or programs and while in their camsite. 

A Scout should always have their buddy (Buddy System) with them.

Please do not pick up wildlife or throw items at them.

FOOTWEAR POLICY (RULES) FOR CAMP SINOQUIPE: All campers, scouters, staff and visitors are always required to wear closed toe shoes while on camp property except for while you are in the shower. Shower shoes or flip-flop style shoes can be worn while in the showers not to and from.  We define closed toe shoes as any shoe where the toes are covered.

Once a participant is registered and has checked in, anyone leaving camp must sign out and back in at the camp office. Failure to do so may cause a camp wide emergency.

  • Do not “stack” hammock-style tents above one another.

All participants in official Scouting activities should become familiar with the Guide to Safe Scouting and applicable program literature or manuals, and be aware of state or local government regulations that supersede Boy Scouts
of America practices, policies, and guidelines. The Guide to Safe Scouting is an overview of Scouting policies and procedures gleaned from a variety of sources. For some items, the policy statements are complete. Unit leaders are expected to review the additional reference material cited prior to conducting such activities.
