Day Camp Down on the Farm
Day camp is a Council organized program for all youth entering 1st to 5th grade in the fall. The Day Camp program is designed around 7 key areas: Cooking & STEM, Farming & Nature, Sports, Water Sports, Shooting Sports, Woodworking, and Crafts. Day Camp activities are intended to promote character development, citizenship training, and physical and mental health. As your Scout participates in these activities, they will have the opportunity to complete tasks they can use towards rank advancement.
Campers entering FIRST GRADE or TIGER SCOUTS must have a parent or guardian attend camp with them!
Please read the accompanying parent guide for more information.
NEW this year: Join us for the fifth day of camp from 9 am to 12 pm on Friday for Family Day. Siblings and parents are invited to join their Camper and join in on the festivities during our Down on the Farm County Fair. This is a family day and will be an open program setup.
Parents/Volunteers: We strongly recommended each camper have a corresponding adult (parent, guardian, grandparent, sibling over 18, etc.) volunteer a minimum of 1 day as a Staff Member or 2 days as a Day Walker. âDay Camp is a volunteer-driven event and we rely on parents and leaders to help us have adequate staff for smooth camp operations and to maintain 2-deep leadership.
Staff Member – Volunteer Staff Members consist of Range Masters (2-3 each camp), Tot Lot Supervisor, Tot Lot Assistant, COPE Instructors (Morris only), Station Leads, Den Leaders (one needed for each den), and Trading Post Supervisor.
Day Walker – Day Walkers provide support to Staff by assisting with stations, providing additional supervision, and maintaining 2 deep leadership for every den.
Non Scouter Parent Volunteers- Must provide Youth Protection Training at online registration or day of camp. Youth Protection training can be completed on My.Scouting.org.
All participants must submit Medical Forms Part A & B!
