Tiger Scout, Cub Scout, and Webelos Scout Day Camp
How Do I Register My Scout?
Cub Scout Day Camp provides fun and adventure in the outdoors for packs and dens. Day camp is an organized 3-or-4-day program, under trained leadership, at an approved site, during daylight or early evening hours but not overnight.
Day camp youth participants are limited to registered Tiger Cubs (entering 1st grade for the 2017-2018 school year), Cub Scouts, (wolf entering 2nd grade and Bear entering 3rd grade) and Webelos Scouts (entering 4th or 5th grade).
A Tiger Cub-Adult Partner must register at no charge and attend with their Tiger Cub Scout. Adults referred to as Walking Group Guides must register at no charge and accompany every one to five Cub Scouts or one to five Webelos Scouts. All Scouts who register as individuals must provide their own Walking Group Guides.
The cost of Cub Scout Day camp is $65 for a 3-day camp and $75 for a 4-day camp. If you plan on making payment by check, you will need to send in the registration number, the children attending and what pack the check is for. It is requested that Day Camp fees be paid in full before the day of camp. Fees include hat, t-shirt, water bottle, activity patch and program.
The Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered in one three-part medical form.
Parts A and B are to be completed annually by all BSA unit members. Please make a copy of your health forms. They will not be returned at the completion of Day Camp.
Please submit these forms when you arrive at Day Camp on the first day - Day Camp Health Form. Please do not send these forms to the council office.
