FAQs

Does everyone get a t-shirt?

Camp t-shirts will be ordered for all participants based on registration numbers on May 1st. We plan to order additional sizes to accomodate late registrants, but we cannot guarantee shirts for those who wait until after this date to register.

Do some activities have age requirements?

R-C prides itself on featuring summer camp programming that will delight the whole family. Some activities do have age restrictions governed by the Guide to Safe Scouting and BSA NCAP standards.

The following age requirements apply to R-C programming…

Horse Riding – 8 years old and up
BB Guns – 7 years old and up

Are water guns allowed at camp?

Per BSA National policy, water guns are not allowed at camp. However please expect a revived and exciting set of water day activities for family camp 2021!

Can we arrive early or stay late for camp?

Our staff work hard to get the property prepared for camp before and between sessions. For this reason please do not arrive early or attempt to stay late. Please take note that early arrivals will not be checked in early and will not be able to begin set up in their tent site.

If you do arrive early please wait in the parking lot until the designated check-in time. Christopher Creek is a small town located just east of R-C and is another great place to burn some time. We highly recommend patronizing the Tall Pines Marketplace to grab an ice cream or soda.

Can I request a specific tent site?

Tent sites are assigned based on number of participants and/or medical needs of participants. For this reason groups cannot request a specific site.

Are camp fires allowed?

Camp fires are allowed when no fire restrictions are in effect. Camp fires are only allowed in each camp site’s designated fire pit. Please do not build new fire circles.

Current fire restrictions can be found hereFire restrictions at R-C are governed by Gila County. The county mirrors the fire restriction status of the forest service.
