Day Camp youth participants are limited to registered Cub Scouts members. Cub Scout ranks should be determined by the grade each Scout will be entering for the 2019-2020 school year.
- Tiger Cubs (entering 1st grade)
- Wolf ( entering 2nd grade)
- Bears (entering 3rd grade)
- Webelos (entering the 4th grade)
- Arrow of Light Scouts (entering 5th grade)
The cost of Cub Scout Day camp is $85. Contact your Camp Director for opportunities to volunteer and save on the cost of camp. Fees include t-shirt, activity patch and program. A non-refundable deposit of $25 is required to complete your registration.
The Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered in one three-part medical form. Parts A and B are to be completed annually by all BSA unit members. Please make a copy of your health forms. They will not be returned at the completion of Day Camp. Please submit these forms when you arrive at Day Camp on the first day. Please do not send BSA Health Forms to the council office.
