Welcome to the Arapahoe District
2015 Cub Scout Twilight Camp
Save the date for this year's Cub Scout Twilight Camp. We'll be returning to deKoevend Park on June 17-19, 2015 (16-19 for Webelos). More information and registration details will be available soon.
You can start planning now; please identify a Twilight Camp coordinator in your Pack that can help communicate, coordinate and support your Pack in its efforts to attend one of Cub Scouting's best events of the year! You can share that person's name and contact information at an upcoming Roundtable. Additionally, you can review general information on Twilight Camps in the Council.
This symposium is designed to go beyond basic training, but to provide a better understanding of the Cub Scouting movement. This is a time to learn from seasoned Scouters who have experienced many leadership roles in Cub Scouting.
RSVP yes by July 9th or request a copy of the syllabus here.
