ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
IMPORTANT – Trainees attending their assigned session should make every attempt to arrive on the
designated Sunday between 1:00 PM and 4:30 PM. (Do not arrive before 1:00 PM as the camp staff will not be available for check-in before that.) Please make sure daily medications and
canteen money are in hand during check-in.
Departure or check-out from Legionville is scheduled from 2:30 until 4:00 PM on Friday. Parents,
guardians, sponsors, drivers, etc. are encouraged to come to Legionville on Friday afternoon for our camp graduation ceremony at 2:00 PM. Following the ceremony, trainees will be free to check
out with you to return home. For this or any other concerns regarding arrival or departure, please feel free to call Legionville at 218/829-3094. It must be emphasized that all
campers must check out in the office before leaving Legionville at the end of the week.
Legionville is open to all children regardless of race, color or national origin. Over $1,500,000.00
has been invested in Legionville by The Minnesota American Legion through the years. It is the only camp of it's kind in the US. Each year additional work is done on the facilities to
make sure that each campers experience is a good one. Starting in 2012, Legionville will welcome back prior year campers that have attended within the past 3 years. Our programs have expanded
to include Team Building and Additional Safety Training.
The sponsor/alumni parent is responsible for coordinating transportation of trainees to and from
Legionville. This is not included in the registration fee. Please provide that the trainee be taken directly to Legionville.
and parents are encouraged to double check the means of transportation to be used in returning the youngsters from Legionville.
Past experience has shown that in some instances youngsters are stranded at Legionville because of confusion in the pick-up arrangements. This can be a real problem for the student, especially after a week at camp. We suggest that communities pool transportation with other communities in their area.
The sponsor is responsible for sufficient liability or insurance to cover possible accidents resulting in
bodily injury or property damage while traveling to and from Legionville. The Legionville School Safety Patrol Training Center, Inc. assumes the cost, to a maximum of $2,000.00, for any medical
expenses arising out of accidental injury incurred while at the Center, not covered by other insurance.
HEALTH AND MEDICAL
A Health History is required of each student by a Parent/Guardian as part of the registration
process. The white registration form with the campers health history and family health insurance information should be completed and sent in prior to the campers arrival at
Legionville. Each camper is required to have had a physical within 3 months of arriving at camp.
While at Legionville, competent medical service is available for emergencies which might occur. Every precaution is taken to avoid accidents and prevent illnesses. All state health standards are met or exceeded.
MAIL, EMAIL, AND TELEPHONE
Telephone calls of an emergency nature can be placed to Legionville during any hour of any day or night by
calling 218/829-3094. Due to the number of campers attending Legionville each week and our business use of the telephone, we cannot
allow campers to use the telephone at their convenience. Parents are asked to encourage their son/daughter to write postcards or letters as an alternative. Experience has shown that well
meaning phone calls from parents tend to encourage homesickness and make the week more difficult for the camper.
"Mail Call" is always a very important part of the camper's day. We encourage you to
mail cards and letters to your child. Don't forget your patrol member just because he/she is at camp. Letters to students or staff should have the following address:
Name c/o Legionville Camp
9544 Legionville Road Brainerd, Minnesota 56401
E-mail can be sent to campers at email@example.com and MUST be limited to 1 email per day. Only 1 email will be printed out
and handed out with the regular mail received for campers. Please combine greetings from other family members into that one email. Make sure that the campers name and cabin number
(if known) are included in the subject line of the email. Campers do NOT have access to the computer and can NOT reply to email messages. No electronic greeting cards will be accepted.
