This is a five-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.
Day Camp is the highlight of the Cub Scout program each year! We want to make sure all your boys have the chance to attend Day Camp. To help you promote the Day Camp program, we will come to your pack to help you learn more about Day Camp, from beginning to end!
These and more questions will be addressed during your Pack's Day Camp Promotion Presentation and during Day Camp Information Sessions and Trainings throughout the year.
