Camp Finances: If you are going as a pack, your pack should collect all fees from each family and submit one pack payment using the online registration process. But if you want to register as an individual that option is available. We also have registration for siblings as a separate fee. A camp fee includes a camp uniform t-shirt, a commemorative event patch, and covers expenses for the use of our event program, equipment, special program guests, and other necessary camp needs.

Do I have to Volunteer?
Cub Scout Twilight 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 for one to three days and serve in a variety of staff roles. Youth volunteers are also needed to serve as Den Chiefs and assist in program areas. If you are interested in Volunteering, please email Kelsey Walker at Kelsey.Walker@scouting.org. Each pack unit must provide 1 adult leaders per 10 kids.
Example: If you register 12 scouts you must provide 2 adult leaders, 18 scouts 2 adult leaders, 50 kids 5 adult leaders-1 leaders must be registered as a den leader or den walker.
Den Leaders/Den Walkers: Each adult must also have taken a YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING COURSE.

How do I get to Camp?
Transportation to and from our Camp’s location is the Parent’s responsibility. We encourage parents within the same pack to car-pool, however, appropriate information needs to be provided on the Activity Consent form and Approval by parents or legal guardians, for the Camp Staff to allow your child to leave site with anyone. Including the child’s custodian.
Is there Early registration and T-shirt pick-up?
YES!!! There will be one registration event and that will be held on Wednesday May 29, 2018 (from open-close) at the council office. Please see Kelsey Walker. Units who cannot register MUST make arrangements with Camp Advisor Kelsey Walker for other registration times. You will turn in all forms and receive your camp t-shirt’s and schedule packets for all properly registered scouts. Please send only 1 representative from each pack, if you register as a unit. Registration is available 24/7 online.
Is there early drop-off or aftercare available?
NO. We begin promptly at 5:45pm. Pick up of scouts is directly after closing ceremony, which will end promptly at 8:00pm every day.
Parents that are picking up and dropping off their scouts MUST check out with the REGISTRAR. If someone else is picking up your scout please notify Kelsey Walker to that day. If you are leaving camp early for any reason the scout MUST be signed out prior to leaving. Forms are available at the registration table.
Camp Staff is requested to be at the camp 30 minutes prior to the start of camp, and depart 30 minutes after the end of camp.
What happens if I get hurt at camp?
A first aid station is in camp and is staffed by personnel trained to handle minor accidents and illnesses. First aid at camp is just that. FIRST AID. Special arrangements for the treatment of more serious cases have been made with local facilities. All medical emergencies must be reported to the Health Officer immediately. Parents will be notified immediately if a SERIOUS issue occurs which requires more medical attention than we can provide.
Where can I buy lots of cool scout stuff?
The trading post will be open from certain times during the twilight camp themed/scout related items will be available for purchase. Please pay cash or check only. Scouts WILL NOT be allowed to visit the Trading Post during all hours. They will have designated time slots and will be allowed to visit at the end of each day with parents.
Is there a Uniform requirement?
YES!!! Each scout is required to wear the day camp shirt EACH day of camp. Also, shorts are required with closed toe shoes. Extra shirts will be available for purchase if needed. Extra shirts are $10/ea. We will also provide appropriate wrist bands to indicate placements of den.
Cub scout Program:
Tiger & Lion Program: Tiger and Lion Scouts attending Day Camp must have an adult accompany them all the days they are present. The person who comes with the Tiger Scout does not have to be a parent or guardian. We routinely have grandparents, older siblings, cousins, babysitters, etc. This will be strictly enforced and Tiger and Lion Scout parents can VOLUNTEER in other areas if you are on the premises the entire camp. If they are 21 and over, approved by the parent/guardian and can walk around in the sun they are OK. Any questions feel free to email the Camp director.
PLEASE NOTE: Dens are formed by Pack. Please indicate the rank the Scouts are going to be September 1, 2019 on the Cub Scout Registration Form.
