UPDATE ON DAY CAMP
June 4th 2020
Due to ever-changing circumstances, we regret to inform you that all HOAC Cub Scout Day Camps have been canceled for this summer. While our traditional Day Camps will not be held, we are developing alternative solutions and templates for your den or pack to utilize for unit programming this summer - Stay Tuned! For our older Cub Scouts, we have reservations still available at our Bear and Webelos Resident camps.
While we are disappointed, Jurassic Cubs Day Camp is not going extinct! Plans are already in the works for the return of Jurassic Cubs Day Camp in 2021...now one-million and one years in the making!
What is Day Camp?
This is a four-day camp opportunity available to ALL Cub Scouts. Cub Scouts will come to camp each morning for a week to participate in several different activities and then head home at the end of afternoon.
Council and District staffs are currently planning the programs for the thousands of Cub Scouts who will attend camp in the Heart of America Council. These Cub Scouts shoot BB guns and bows and arrows; work on badges and Cub Scout belt loops; cook out; sing songs; learn about nature; make crafts; and play games. If you have not made plans to attend, you should!
The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for their Cub Scouts who attend Day Camp, plus provide for transportation to and from the camps. It is recommended that packs have at least one registered adult leader attend camp for every five to six Cub Scouts. The minimum number of adults required at Day Camp at any time is two, of which one of them must have completed Youth Protection Training. Everyone, including adults, must complete a Health Form to participate in Day Camp.
Camp takes place rain or shine, is easy to sign up for, provides a lifetime of treasured memories, and is very inexpensive.
