KATAHDIN AREA COUNCIL
From the Atlantic Ocean' s crashing surf along the rocky coast, to the 5,268 ft. Mt. Katahdin where the Appalachian Trail begins or ends for hikers, the scenic six northern counties Maine comprise the Katahdin Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, Incorporated. It contains 17,981 square miles, making it the largest council in land area east of the Mississippi, and the most eastern Council in the contiguous 48 states. Our council represents approximately two-thirds of the land area and about one-third of the population of the State of Maine.
Since August of 1920, the Katahdin Area Council's mission has been to: "serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential".
Our "vision statement” is: The Boy Scouts of America is the nation's foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. In the future, Scouting will continue to:
· Offer young people responsible fun and adventure.
· Instill in young people lifetime values and develop in them ethical character as expressed in the Scout Oath & Law.
· Train young people in citizenship, service, and leadership.
· Serve America' s communities and families with its quality, values-based program.
CAMP ROOSEVELT-TIPS FOR SIGNING UP FOR SUMMER CAMP
CAMPSITE RESERVATIONS AND CAMP REGISTRATIONS-THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT ITEMS!
Your campsite reservation is NOT your camp registration. They are two different sign ups. Your unit is not considered to be registered for camp until you have signed up for the week of camp that you plain to attend. Filling out the campsite reservation helps us to reserve your spot for you but if you do not sign up for camp, we reserve the right to give your space to someone else who has.
CAMPSITE RESERVATION FORM
When making a campsite reservation, only the unit leader or person responsible is required to put only their name down. You will be asked how many people you are bringing so we can make sure the campsite you are reserving suites your needs. Please do not put everyone attending because you will be charged for each person you add on. The Doubleknot system is automated in that if you are already in the system, it will prompt you with the option to use your roster when you register for any event. In the case of regular summer camp registration, you would then add on each individual attending that week of camp with you but otherwise, for the campsite reservation for, please only select your name to book your site. To reserve your campsite, CLICK HERE.
SUMMER CAMP SIGN UP
When signing up for summer camp, the unit leader or person responsible is required to put down everyone who will be attending camp.This is not like the campsite reservation form where only one name needs to be selected in order to reserve your site.If you have previously signed up for summer camp or any council event, the Doubleknot system has your information stored on file and will automatically generate your roster. Please select those individuals who will be attending camp. In some cases, you will have to add new individuals in who have not attended before. To sign your unit up for summer camp, CLICK HERE.
We hope this helps clear up the confusion. If you have any questions, please contact us at the Council Service Center at 207-866-2241!
