Contacting Camp

For Emergency and Business use only: The camp telephone is primarily for use as a business phone and for emergency calls. Those who call the camp phone should note that the person being called may be a considerable distance from a phone. A message will be taken for the Scout or Scouter to return the call. Knowing in which camp and which campsite the person is, and knowing the person’s Troop or Pack number, is very helpful when delivering a message.
