Day Camp FAQ
General Information for all Cub Camps
How do I get our Cub Scouts excited about Cub Camps? Schedule a Cub Camp Promotion! One of our trained volunteers will visit your pack at an event or pack meeting and get your Cub Scouts pumped for Day Camp.
Where can I find the event schedule? A Day Camp schedule will be available on our website shortly on each event page. Schedules for each event will be handed out at check-in.
How do I pay the event fees? You can pay the full amount online with a credit/debit card or personal e-check by clicking here. You may pay a deposit of $75 for Day Camp, and the balance must be paid in full by June 15th. Deposits are not available for any other Cub Camps.
What is a Cub Scout Campership? Camperships are scholarships for Scouts to attend our Council’s Cub Camps. These are need-based scholarships. Go to the Scholarships page for more details.
Do I need to complete a BSA Annual Health Form for my Scout? Yes. Go to the Health and Safety page for information.
What should we leave at home? Leave all valuable and sentimental items at home, including games, computers, phones, special gifts from family members, etc. If you’d hate to lose it, don’t bring it! As always, you cannot bring alcohol, fireworks, or other BSA-prohibited items in camp. See Camp Rules for a more comprehensive list.
Do I need extra money? No, but there will be a Trading Post to buy goodies. The schedule will let you know when it is open.
