Time to Sign Up for Day Camp!

by on April 16, 2013

Summer is just around the corner, and we all know that the highlight of the Cub Scout summer is Day Camp.  This year’s camp will be July 22nd through July 26th at Firestone Scout Reservation.   How important is it for all Scouts to attend Day Camp?  In the past few years, most dens have been able to complete between 25% – 45% of their rank advancement within this week.  Those scouts who do not attend camp can spend the rest of the year trying to catch up with the rest of the den.

The camp is run 100% by volunteers.  We will need parents to help with the dens and activities at camp.  While we do need a few to help the entire week, it is also helpful to work just a couple of days.  We need to maintain a ratio of 1 adult per 4 kids all week long.  The cost of the camp has not increased in three years, and it remains the best deal around for a full week-long camp:

$95 – If the scout sold at least 1 Scout-o-Rama ticket bookAND medical form and payment are turned in by May 5th.

$130 – If forms and payment are received after May 5th or no Scout-o-Rama ticket book is sold..

One shirt is included in the above pricing.  Add $10 per extra shirt if desired. Payment can be turned in at the April pack meeting or mailed to Jim.  Siblings are again welcome to attend sibling camp when their parent is at camp for only $5 a day, or $20 for the entire week.

Council is no longer using registration forms, so all the registration this year is all done via the website.  A separate registration must be submitted for each youth and adult attending.  To register, please click HERE .

The only form that must be completed and turned in is the medical form.  Click HERE to complete, print out, and sign this form (one each for every youth and adult attendee). This should be turned in with your payment.

This is an event that every scout should attend.  If it is not possible to attend, however, please still RSVP on the registration form.
