Summer Day Camp is Coming!

2014_Daycamp_001_400Hello Pack Families!  Summer is coming, and we all know that the highlight of the Cub Scout summer is Day Camp.  This year’s camp will be July 21st through July 25th 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. If you have never attended a day camp, you can see a summary presentation HERE.

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 if you can just work 2-3 days. We need to maintain a ratio of 1 adult per 4 kids all week long.  The cost of the camp remains the best deal around for a full week-long camp:

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

$115 – If registration, medical form, and payment received by May 5th (and 5 SOR books were not sold)

$130 – If registration, medical form, and payment received after May 5th, but before June 18th

$150 – If forms and payment are received after June 18th.

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 Jo Rivera.  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. All payments can be submitted to the event coordinator, or paid via our pack store.

As usual, registration this year is all done via our 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 so your den leaders can plan accordingly.

Thank you,

Jo Rivera
