Short-Term Camps.

What is a Short-Term Camp Administrator?

Each short-term camp must have a short-term camp administrator. This person is responsible for ensuring that the planned camp/event complies with the NCAP Short-term Camp Standards.  This means walking the property to ensure that it is appropriate for the event; ensuring that paperwork is filed and any written BSA approvals are completed and obtained through the council; confirming facilities and program are safe and in good order before starting operation; and that appropriate health, safety, and sanitation provisions are made.  This individual also ensures that all activities at the short-term camp comply with the applicable BSA National Camp Standards.


Why take this course?

Each short-term camp is administered by a short-term camp administrator and hence plays a crucial role in implementing the National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP) and council/district short-term camps. This National Camping School course may be conducted at the council level with host site approval or participants can participate in National Council-facilitated coursesThe Short-term camp administrator certification will be valid for 2 years from the course date.
