Register early. This camp has filled up every year!!

What: A week long camp filled with sports, archery, swimming, knot tying, engineering work, whittling, BB guns, crafts, skits, songs, and daily entertainment shows with about 400 other scouts from our district. Scouts will be able to earn various badges.  More info here.  Go here to see what our scouts achieved last year.

Cost: $165 per scouts before 4/19/2011
$180 before 5/25/2011
$195 before 6/06/2011
$ 25 for TAGS

Who: Any scout from Tigers to Webelos II, using his Fall 2011 rank. If your scout will be an incoming Tiger (entering 1st grade) his adult needs to attend each day too. If your scout has graduated from 5th grade (entering 6th grade or above in Fall 2011 and at least 11 years old) he can volunteer as a Junior Helper for no charge. Jr. Helpers must attend one evening of training.

Volunteers: This camp is entirely organized and staffed by volunteers. Our pack must provide one adult volunteer for every six scouts attending. Adults attending all day for all the five days will receive a steep discount on the registration fee for one scout. Also, adults volunteering all week will be able to bring their potty-trained to pre-school age child to the TAG program for $25. Every adult that attends camp, even if for only half a day, needs to take the “Youth Protection Training”, needs to register as a volunteer, and fill out a medical form. Adult volunteers must attend one evening of training.

Registering for camp requires three steps:

  1. Register at:
  2. Print, fill out, and sign the medical form. Attach a copy of BOTH sides of your scout’s insurance card.
  3. Turn in a copy of your registration and your filled out medical form to me at home or at a Pack Meeting. There is so much paperwork, they are asking that each pack camp coordinator handle the paperwork for their own pack scouts. Every person at camp must register and turn in a medical form with a copy of his registration receipt.

Please feel free to email or call me with questions.

Emergency Preparedness

Newscasts on the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan have been horrifying to watch, yet they serve as reminders of the importance of being prepared. While we express our condolences to the victims and their families, we should not forget to get ourselves ready. Take this opportunity and work with your children on the Emergency Preparedness Award. This award is available to all cub scouts, boy scouts, as well as Scouters. Check out the requirement over here, and send award request to the Awards Chairs upon completion.  Be Safe.

P.S.  If you have a boy scout at home, this may be a good time to work on the Nuclear Science Merit Badge too.
