Time is running out! Don't miss out on the early bird rate for Cub Scout Day Camp! *:) happy

The early bird rate ends at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 30. It is highly recommended that registrations be completed ASAP for the early bird rate. No guarantee that the online system will not crash on the last day as it has done in the past.
 
So get the word out and register your Cub Scouts today!!!

If your pack has not registered yet, please forward to your pack parents ASAP!

Camp Hours: Monday through Thursday, June 16-19, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
                       Friday, June 20 is water day as well as a shorter camp day and runs from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
 
Who Can Attend?
Registered Cub Scouts and Webelos between the ages of 6 and 10 (grade 1 and up) are eligible for day camp. Is you son currently in Kindergarten? First year Tiger Cubs (becoming a Tiger Cub on or after June 1, 2014) are considered to be in first grade as soon as school ends and are eligible for the discounted Early Bird fee no matter when they sign up for camp (they must sign up ‘hard copy’ rather than online if after the end of the early bird rate). Each Tiger Cub will need to have his Tiger Cub Partner attend with him every day at camp.
 
Activities:
Day Camp activities at this location include archery instruction, target shooting (BBs and/or slingshot), nature, crafts, fishing, sports, Scout Skills, and other activities.
 
Advancement is not the specific goal of Cub Scout Day Camp. However, many times a specific camp will focus on rank achievements the participants may fulfill if they are fully active at the day camp each day. Information regarding these achievements are the responsibility of each individual camp and the directors. Packs purchase the awards and present the advancements and/or achievements at a future den or pack event.
 
Camp Fees:
Register before            April 30, 2014            $ 165
Register before            May 16, 2014            $ 185
Register after               May 16, 2014            $ 205
 
Register as a Pack:
Packs sign up as a group. Each group of five boys requires at least one adult who will walk with the den all day (not considered to be a staff member). Den Walkers and Adult Staff (over 18 years) must complete Youth Protection Training (YPT) and provide proof of completion. Remember that YPT must be renewed every two years. Link to complete YPT BSA Online Learning Center.

No individual campers will be accepted…they must attend with their pack or have alternate full-time leadership. Each pack should have a designated Pack Day Camp Coordinator. Don't know who your Pack Coordinator is? Contact your Cubmaster or Committee Chair. Only have one or two boys who can attend from your pack? Small groups are welcome. Feel free to pair up with another pack or contact the camp director for more information on individual campers from a pack or small groups. 

Each Cub Scout will receive the Early Bird discount if registered by the early bird deadline in April. Later registrations will incur a higher cost. To allow for proper planning and to have all materials available for your child, registrations will not be accepted after the Tuesday prior to the start of each camp unless prior arrangements have been made with the camp director or professional assigned to your camp. Walk-in or on-site registrations are highly discouraged, as the camp may not have adequate supplies to allow your child to have a great camp experience.
 
Registration fees for regional day camps include participation in all camp activities and programs, one themed t-shirt, commemorative patch, and water bottle. Lunch is not provided and should be sent with the camper. Extra t-shirts can be ordered prior to camp through our online trading post specific to day camps. Financial assistance may be available by submitting a camper aid application through your unit leader. Note that the deadline for assistance is due no later than February 28, 2014.

Pack Coordinator Information:
Note that there is a new registration process in place. Sign up either online at White Oak/Lois Green Day Camp Registration Page or by filling out and mailing or bringing the registration form to the Marriot Scout Service Center, 9190 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20814. If registering online, the camp still needs a copy of the individual registration form. Please submit with health and release forms.

If registering your pack online, each registration is separate and extra shirts can also be ordered using the registration link. New this year, your pack can pay by check using online registration. Link to Registration Instructions. You do not register Den Walkers on line. Here is a link to the 2014 Den Walkers Schedule. This must be submitted prior to picking up your day camp shirts and water bottles.
