Can I bring my Cub's siblings?
Unfortunately no, not for Day Camp.
Do I have to volunteer?
Cub Scout Day Camp would be lost without its youth and adult volunteers. Adults learn a lot and will be inspired and engaged in the idea of Scouting and camping. Adults can volunteer from one to five days and serve in a variety of staff roles. Youth volunteers are also needed to serve as Den Chiefs and assist in program areas. But of course, volunteerism is not mandatory, only appreciated!
Do I have to pre-register?
All camp attendees (both adults and youth) must be pre registered for camp two-weeks before camp starts. Walk-ins on the first day of camp will not be accepted. All registration forms must come through council, not sent directly to camp. Adult and Youth Volunteers need to apply early so they can place them in their positions/dens for camp. Click here for registration information.
Adult volunteers must be Youth Protection trained before applying to camp. Den Chief applicants must be Den Chief trained and present a letter of recommendation from their Scoutmaster (or equivalent for female applicants). Those without training or letters of recommendation will not be considered.
