DAY CAMP

 

Day Camp 2017:

We are going on a bug hunt this summer. District Day Camps have planned exciting programs that include buggy adventures, shooting sports, games, crafts, skills, and, of course, fun.  Come to camp and discover how Cheetos relate to pollination or where, besides the insect world, there are “bugs.” Gather your whole pack for a trip to day camp.

Each district is providing a day camp experience for all Cub Scouts and attending adults implemented by BSA National Camp School trained directors. Boys and adults - register ONLINE for the day camp that fits your schedule and geographic preference.

2017 CUB SCOUT DAY CAMP INFORMATION: PLEASE READ!

IMPORTANT DAY CAMP INSTRUCTIONS

  • Day camp is for all Cub Scouts (Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Cubs and Webelos Scouts), leaders and parents.

  • Each day camp does NOT provide leadership to walk with your Cub Scouts. Each pack must provide adult leadership for their own boys.

  • Adult/Boy Ratio at Day Camp is 1:6: It is the pack’s responsibility to provide at least 1 adult volunteer (den walker) for every 6 boys attending. Tigers must be accompanied by their adult partner.

  • A day camp T-shirt and patch will be provided to each boy registered. Adults may order a camp T-shirt for $8.00 when they register online.

  • Health Forms: EVERY YOUTH AND ADULT (DEN WALKER OR STAFF) attending camp MUST complete both Parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record, No.680-001.  Please download the form from www.scouting.org/forms and submit it to your district at least two weeks prior to camp. The council website has a link to the medical forms.

  • Transportation: Parents provide transportation to and from camp. Carpooling is recommended.
  • What to Bring: Youth and adults need to bring a sack lunch, water bottle, hat, sunblock, and closed-toed shoes. No sandals are allowed for either boys or adults.
  • What NOT to Bring: Electronic games, knives, and pets.

  • Not all day camps offer a tot lot for siblings. Check with your day camp.

 

WHAT IS A DEN WALKER?

A den walker is the adult accompanying the boys to camp. The den walker can be a pack den leader, Cubmaster, committee member, or a parent. The den walker supervises the camp den and escorts the den through the program rotation schedule. The den walker must register online for day camp and can volunteer for one or more days. The adult must also provide a completed medical form. There is no day camp fee for adults; there is an optional fee of $8.00 for the adult day camp T-shirt. Den walkers should have current Youth Protection Training certification.

WHAT IS A DAY CAMP STAFF MEMBER?

Day camp staffers are members of the day camp team that implement the camp. These are adults that either run the program activity areas or handle the administrative duties (camp directors, registration/check-in, first aid, supplies, etc.). If you wish to volunteer as a staff member for your district, please contact the camp director. All staff members must be approved by the camp director. Register online as “staff”.

WHAT IS A CAMP DEN?

Each day camp will divide the boys into “camp” dens that rotate as a group to the activity stations. These are usually dens of the same age/rank. Sometimes there will be boys from different packs in the same camp den. This is an opportunity for boys to meet Cub Scouts from other packs.
