When arriving at Ransburg Scout Reservation, please be sure that the Scoutmaster reports to the check-in table located at the STEM Center. The SPL should stay with the staff guide and lead the troop through the camp check-in process which will include unloading of gear, medical checks, a tour of camp, and a swimming ability check. The check-in process has been developed to reduce the amount of time each troop spends at each stop, as there are many things to accomplish on this day. Your guide will be the key staff member responsible for keeping your troop on this schedule. National BSA has established an aquatics guideline. Troops with qualified lifeguards may take their swim check on their own prior to camp and communicate it to our staff, see "Swim Checks". This can save time at check-in. Our aquatics staff retains the right to require a re-test at their discretion.
