The last date for registration has passed.

Due to the many challenges with COVID-19, the Nevada Area Council has had to review holding the Western Nevada Day Camp at Davis Creek. While we were holding out hope of being able to have this great fun event in a similar format we might all be used to for a Day Camp, we have had to make some hard decisions. The camp’s location will be moved to the Scout Office and will be held on Friday, August 14th and Saturday, August 15th. We will have a signup limiting groups to 10 Scouts and those groups will come to the Scout Office for a time you register for and will be at the Scout Office only for that time frame. At the office, we will have shooting sports and then have activities like crafts/games for you to be able to take with you to go somewhere and have fun doing. We plan to have a new registration open on July 14th with time slots available to come to the Scout Office and have fun. We will be cancelling your prior registration so you can register in this new format and pick your time. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may present and are sad we will not be able to have this event in the same exciting format.

COVID-19 Information

  • We will be watching closely and following all local and state guidance to hold our camp in the safest manner possible

  • Shirts and patches may not be available right away at the camp. In the event they are not the Council will ensure sending them to a coordinator for each Pack to help distribute. While this is not our normal way of getting these out we just want to share what may happen in case COVID-19 prevents proper delivery.

IMPORTANT DAY CAMP INSTRUCTIONS

  • Day Camp is for all Cub Scouts (Tiger, Wolf and Bear Cubs and Webelos Scouts), leaders and parents.
  • Day Camp does NOT provide leadership to walk with your Cub Scouts. Adult/Scouts Ratio at Day Camp is 1:6. It is the pack’s responsibility to provide at least 1 adult leader (Den Walker) for every 6 Scouts attending. Den Walkers may be split into 2 shifts but no more. If you are not able to commit to those times please find someone that can. Tigers MUST be accompanied by their adult partner.
  • A Day Camp T-shirt and patch will be provided to each Scout registered. Den Walkers are highly encouraged, for the safety of our camp, to purchase a T-shirt for $8 when they register online.

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.

WHAT IS A CAMP DEN?

Each Day Camp will divide the Scouts into “camp” dens that rotate as a group to the activity stations. Sometimes there will be Scouts from different packs in the same camp den. This is an opportunity for Scouts to meet Cub Scouts from other packs.

Cancellation Policy
REFUND POLICY Because most of the fees that are paid for camps and events are actually spent or committed prior to the actual camp or event, refunds or activity fee transfers for Council and district camps and activities will be made only under the following conditions: Request for cancellation of a reservation or activity fee transfer must meet one of the following criteria: A: For the use of Council camps, Boy Scout summer camp, Cub Scout Day Camp, or any overnight camping event, a written request must be received by Volunteer Services at the Council Service Center at least thirty (30) calendar days before the event. B: For all non-overnight events, a written request must be received by Volunteer Services at the Council Service Center at least fourteen (14) calendar days before the event. All requests for refunds must be made in writing and submitted by the person who paid for the original reservation. All refund requests received by the deadline will be processed by the Volunteer Services department, and will require approval by a member of the Council Management Staff. Volunteer Services will request this approval. In regards to Camp Fleischmann, refund requests received by the above deadlines, will be processed by Volunteer Services at the end of each session of camp. Cancellation requests received by the required deadline, as stated above, will result in a full refund minus a non-refundable, non-transferable fee of 15%. Refunds will be paid in the manner of funds received (check, CC, etc.) and mailed/ notified to the person who submitted the original reservation. The only exception to this policy is in the case of an emergency, injury, or illness. The exception request must be in writing and verified by a parent and/or guardian. The maximum available refund under this provision will be 50% of the total fee paid by the individual. The implementation of the policy was March 9, 2017. This policy supersedes all previously adopted or implied Refund Policies.
