What is a Docent? It is surprising how often that question comes up but a DOCENT is a guide, hostess and storyteller. A Docent also has responsibility of ensuring the safety of the collection, the building and visitors during their shift.
To be a Docent requires training and that is provided by the Docent Director several times a year and these scheduled training sessions are announced through the DUP Company and Camp meetings.
There are several documents that are needed by the Camp Docent leaders and they are listed below. Click on the name of the document and you can download the file.
