We wanted you to know that, camp is on! The council program team is working very hard to plan for one of the safest and best summer camp programs in the BSA! Our Day Camp staffs have been meeting virtually so that we don’t miss a beat.

During these unprecedented times, it’s hard to predict the future. True to the Boy Scout motto, however, we are making plans to BE PREPARED, to have the best camp ever. We are monitoring the situation and we will be following the CDC guidelines.

We wanted to share with you some summer camp updates.

WHAT IS DAY CAMP

Day Camp is a great summer activity for Cub Scouts.  It is a week-long experience for all registered Cub Scouts K thru 5th grades.   Day Camp is where Cub Scouts can shoot BB guns, bows and arrows, learn about nature, do leatherwork and crafts, play games, sing songs, and do many more activities.  Leaders and Scouts alike have a great time.

WHAT TO BRING

Cub Scouts should bring a sack lunch each day; bring non-perishable foods & drinks only. Bring rain gear if weather looks threatening, sunscreen and bug repellent.  Everything else is provided.  Adults may bring a chair and a small tarp for the boys to sit on.  No open-toed shoes or sandals are allowed at camp.

WHAT ABOUT LEADERSHIP?

Pack Leadership & parents are encouraged to participate.  All Lion Cubs(kindergarten) and Tiger Cubs (1st Grade) must be accompanied by an adult. Packs may be required to provide adult leadership and will be notified if necessary.  No adults pay a fee.

Adults who plan to spend five days at camp, and whose application is received two weeks before camp starts, will receive a free t-shirt.

Scouts should register with their pack.

WHAT ABOUT YOUNGER CHILDREN?

A special area called the Lil’ Buddy Camp is available for younger children of adults who are serving as Den Walkers and Staff members.   Parents must be at Camp for their child to attend.  A nominal fee of $25 covers the entire week or for any combination of days. Snacks, T-Shirt, and activities will be provided.  Children must be potty-trained.  These children should also bring a sack lunch. You are required to pre-register your Lil’ Buddy.
