Code of Conduct
The expectations for Guests at Sylvan are all based on the simple concepts of courtesy and respect.
As a Scouting facility, the Bylaws, Policies and Procedures of Scouts Canada outline the formalities. This means that there are no pets (service animals excepted) alcohol or smoking.
We'd like to point out a few extras that express the spirit of the Scout Law:
Please respect other Guests. Request permission to enter camp when approaching other Groups' campsites. Share the trails. Limit excess noise, particularly early in the morning and late at night.
Please respect the environment. Nature stays where Nature is. Reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible. Bring all garbage and recyclables home with you. Take only photographs, leave only footprints. Conserve electricity and water, and always use the kybos and greywater pits.
Please respect the property. Damage to trees, trails, or other features of Sylvan is unacceptable. Try to leave Sylvan in better condition than when you arrived.
Please respect the buildings. Sites should be fully cleaned prior to your Group's departure. Try to leave Sylvan in better condition than when you arrived. Any issues should be reported to the Ranger.
Keep Safety in mind. Park cars away from activity areas - all locations have areas suitable for parking; please use them. Treat all roadways as fire routes that must be kept clear in order to allow for emergency vehicle access.
Use fire responsibly. No ground fires are allowed; please use the campfire pits at each site. Ensure water buckets are filled and ready. Keep your campfire to a reasonable size. Cold ashes are to be placed in the ash barrels. Make sure the ash barrel lid is left on to keep the rain out!
Please contact the Ranger if you notice anything that needs attention, or send us an email at Camp.Sylvan@hotmail.com
