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.
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.

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.
