What to Bring

  • 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, hat, water bottle, and sunscreen. Small towel to sit on, poncho, and quiet game (uno, go fish, pokemon, etc). Label all items with the scout’s name.
  • A small drawstring daypack/backpack is 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

Fees are as follows:

$125 per youth: It provides staff training, program materials, craft items, patches, t-shirts, insurance, etc. Registrations after May 7, 2022 incurs a $50 late fee.

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.

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. We will need parents for parking, den walkers, workshops, and more. Parents volunteering for the full 4 days of camp receive a $20 discount for 1 scout attending.
