SUMMER CAMP

FAQ'S

DAY CAMP

 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

 

  • Day pack to hold personal gear
  • BSA Medical Form (Parts A, B & C)
  • Lunch with name on container (no refrigeration is available): Day Camp will break mid-day for lunch. Lunch is not provided during camp, and MUST be brought by each camper. We suggest bagged lunches that do not need refrigeration.
  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Rain gear (dress appropriately for the weather)
  • Water bottle (freeze ahead for cold water all day)
  • Sunscreen and non-aerosol insect repellent
  • Swim suit, towel and bag for wet clothes
  • Money for trading post items
  • Please mark all items with scout’s name & pack number!

 

Medical Form: All participants must bring a complete and up-to-date medical form. Day Camp will include activities such as swimming, boating, or climbing. Therefore the full medical form (Parts A, B &C) must be complete. Download the BSA Medical Form here: Health Form

 

WHAT NOT TO BRING TO CAMP[!

 

  • Knives, firearms, tobacco products, drugs or alcohol
  • Valuables that may get lost or broken

 

WHAT IS THE DAILY CHECK IN PROCEDURE?

 

Each morning, Scouts will be checked in. If your child will not be at camp on a day that they are registered to be there, notify their den leader or den walker so they can communicate this to camp staff.

 

WHAT IS THE DAILY CHECK OUT PROCEDURE?

 

When signing your child out of camp, the scout will only be released to the people listed on the Camper Release section of their Medical Form. Campers leaving camp before dismissal must be checked out at the registration area. Any camper that is not properly checked out will be treated as a missing camper and missing camper procedures will go into effect until the Camp Director can verify the location of the camper. This process is necessary to ensure the safety of each child attending camp.

 

TRANSPORTATION BEST PRACTICES

 

When transporting scouts to & from camp, make sure the rules published in The Guide to Safe Scouting are followed. (An online version can be found at www.scouting.org.)

Most packs carpool to transport Scouts to camp. It is imperative that each vehicle is safe, carries insurance (state requirements) and is operated safely. Be sure anyone taking your child in and out of camp is listed on the Camper Release section of their Medical Form.

 

DO TIGERS NEED AN ADULT PARTNER TO ACCOMPANY THEM AT CAMP?

 

Yes. According to BSA Policy, Tigers must have an adult at camp with them.

 

CAN LIONS REGISTER FOR DAY CAMP?

 

No. Future kindergarteners are not able to participate in Day Camp.

 

WHAT RANK DO I SELECT WHEN REGISTERING MY SCOUT?

 

You register based on what grade your child will be entering into in the fall.

 

 

ARE CAMPERSHIPS AVAILABLE?

 

Camperships are available to help cover the cost of Day Camp for those most in need. April 7, 2017 is the deadline for submitting Campership applications. Applications are available through your Cubmaster or online at: Campership Form.

 

 

RESIDENT CAMP

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DAY CAMP AND CUP SCOUT OR WEBELOS RESIDENT CAMP?

 

Resident Camp is an overnight experience that includes meals and tent camping. Each camp will offer separate crafts, sports, advancement, science activities and its own unique experiences. Day Camp is the first step in the camping progression. Scouts spend each day with the same group and visit a variety of program stations. At the end of the day they return home.
