Bus service to and from Camp Split Rock is provided from many communities in Massasoit and Wachusett districts for an additional fee. Bus routes will be limited to specific parts of the council each week. Check the bus schedule to see which week bussing will be provided in your area.
Bus Stop Safety
Bus stop safety is an important consideration. We strongly encourage packs to make arrangements for a parent or pack leader to wait at the bus stop each morning and afternoon until all the boys have been picked up. Please coordinate with your pack leadership.
Drop Off & Pick Up
Parents are asked to arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early for both pick-up and drop off. After a long day at camp boys may fall asleep on the bus ride home. Bus drivers do not necessarily know which stop each boy should get off at. If you don’t see your son get off the bus at his stop, please look on the bus to make sure he hasn’t fallen asleep in his seat.

Be Prepared! What to bring to camp
All of the equipment needed for the various activities that boys will take part in during the day is provided. Boys will only need to bring a few items with them each morning. Please make sure that all personal items are labeled with your son’s name and hometown. This makes it much easier to identify lost items.
Items each boy should bring to camp include:
- Campers should bring their own lunch. Refrigeration space is available. Please do not bring coolers.
- A swimsuit and towel, are needed to participate in swimming and boating activities.
- Most camp activities continue, rain or shine. Watch the weather reports. Campers may want to bring a poncho or raincoat.
- The camp trading post is well stocked with souvenirs, snacks and drinks. Campers should bring their own spending money.
- Please do not bring knives or fishing poles or tackle.
- A day at camp is full of running and playing, hiking and exploring the outdoors. Open-toed shoes and sandals are not appropriate foot wear for these activities and should not be worn.
All adults staying in camp for the week must be registered members of the BSA. Youth Protection Training is mandatory for all adult leaders, and Venturers ages 18 or older, staying in camp for the week.
All medication must be turned in to the camp health officer upon arrival at camp. It must be in its original packaging and must be accompanied by physician’s orders. Authorization to administer medication must be given by signing the appropriate section of the camp medical form. Medications may only be administered by the camp health officer. Exceptions may be made for asthma inhalers and similar medications at the discretion of the camp health officer in consultation with parents and physician if necessary.
Help us ensure that camp is a positive experience for your Scout. Please avoid changing medication or dosage immediately before or during your week at camp.
