Camp Website Policy

Background National Policy
The general guidelines of the National Organization listed on their web site (http://www.suvcw.org) state that:
“A Camp web site on the Internet should be maintained primarily to inform members and others about:

1.     Important events occurring within the Camp;

2.     Programs and projects undertaken by the Camp and its members;

3.     Other special SUVCW related information about activities within the Camp;

4.     Links to Camp and Department officers who can respond to public requests for information or support;

5.     The meeting time and place of the Camp. A Camp must provide a link from its site on the WWW to the Department web site and optionally to the National web site. Camps-at-Large must provide a link to the National Web Site. Camps that do not maintain their sites by ensuring current listings of Camp officers, Camp listings, etc., may have their return link established by and existing on the Department WWW site deactivated. Such deactivation will remain until the Camp has updated its WWW site
and informed the Department Webmaster that the site has been updated.”
It is incumbent upon the Camp to keep a comprehensive and updated web site in order to be consistent with our National Organization,
and to provide accurate, up-to-date information to all those who visit our Camp web site.
