What to Bring Each Day of Camp

  • Lunch: Every person attending camp needs to bring a lunch packed in a ziplock bag and labeled with their name each day. Avoid menu items that spoil rapidly. NO sodas, consider a healthy alternative – hydration is imperative. A cooler will be available.
  • 2 Day Camp t-shirts will be provided to each scout as part of the camp fee. This shirt, along with weather appropriate clothing, will be the official Day Camp uniform and must be worn to camp each day, dirty or clean.
  • Scouts need closed-toed shoes, hats, water bottle, and sunscreen. Label all items with the scout’s name.
  • A small quiet book or game  in a baggie (Pokemon and UNO are most popular) can go in their bag
  • A small handtowel to sit on if ground is wet
  • A small drawstring backpack is optional, yet EXTREMELY helpful for water, sunscreen, and take-home items each day.
  • Sunscreen and bug repellant must be applied at home before coming to camp each day.
  • Items NOT allowed at camp (NO EXCEPTIONS) are water guns, knives of any kind, electronic devices, sandals, Heely’s or Croc-type shoes.

CAMP FEES

Each Cub Scout Rising Wolf through Webelo – $140 (scouts with a full week volunteer receive a discount)
Fee provides staff training, program materials, craft items, patches, t-shirts, insurance, etc. Registrations after April 12 incur a $50 late fee.
Each Rising Tiger – $100 (MUST have full week volunteer on site)
Fee provides staff training, program materials, craft items, patches, t-shirts, insurance, etc. Registrations after April 12 incur a $50 late fee.
Pixie – $20-$80 depending on days (at least 1 shirt included)
A Pixie is a child of an on-site parent volunteer, at least 3 years of age or older and potty trained.
Campership (Scholarships)
No scout should be denied camp because of finances. A limited number of camperships are available and may help cover a percentage of the camp fee. Up to 50% of the fee may be waived. Packs are also encouraged to help with camperships coverage too. Contact your Pack’s Day Camp Coordinator if you are in need of assistance.
Camp Cards If you will be using Camp Card funds to help pay for your Camp,  Camp card closeout is not until AFTER our registration deadline. What we suggested last year is to have the family pay for registration in full. Hold their receipt and when the pack reconciles the scout accounts from funds raised, then ask the pack for reimbursement from the scout account. Sadly camp card timelines have never matched up with day camp registration.

Day Camp Volunteers

PLEASE, PLEASE consider volunteering at Camp.  The only way the Pack can send our scouts is to have a 3:1 ratio of adult volunteers to scouts.  If 9 scouts want to attend, we are required to send three adults for the entire week.  Parents can split up the week (one covering M, W, F with the other covering T, Th, etc)., or apply for a few days. Please email parisianelle@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering. We will need parents for parking, den walkers (Lindsey Paris will be a walker for Rising Bears), workshops like Regatta, Scavenger Hunts, etc. and more. No professional scouting knowledge is required. Parents volunteering for the full 5 days of camp receive a $20 discount for 1 scout attending.

CAMP FORMS & Registration

Camp directors are very excited to have online registration at 1 link this year. Take your time, read the below directions and contact us or your pack coordinators with any questions. silvercometdaycamp@gmail.com  The due date for completing the registration and collecting health forms will be March 27thBEFORE you start registration, ask your den leader what rank your cub will be next school year, 2019-2020. This is the rank you will choose when registering, NOT what rank your cub currently is.  All the registration will be handled online by each individual family.

  • Registration Link: You will log into Tentaroo (or create an account) and add camp registrations to your “cart.” This will include volunteers, pixies, etc. If you need instructions, view a helpful document here before you click the link.  Remember to add their grade level completed as of 6/1 AND THE RISING RANK in the dropdowns. Example: Current Bears will register for Day camp as Webelos. https://www.atlantabsa.org/admin2/events/3659/16766/Silver-Comet—Kennesaw-Day-Camp-2020
  • Health Forms for anyone (adult or scout)attending or volunteering at camp with a copy of their insurance card. Click HERE for a health form. Turn this in to Lindsey Paris, Bear Leader: parisianelle@gmail.com
  • Copy of your Health Insurance Card!! (Give to Lindsey Paris with your Health Form)
  • Camp still needs a 3:1 ratio (cub: to full week adult) to conduct camp. All adult volunteers need to complete Youth Protection training online, found HERE. Registration now asks for the date you completed Youth Protection.
