WILL I WORK ON MY CUB SCOUT RANK?
The camp programs Cub Scout rank. Many of the activities that are fun provide opportunities to qualify toward rank advancement and belt loops. These give campers a head start for advancement in their handbooks for their upcoming rank. The camp program focuses on age-appropriate activities, so it is very important that we know what grade he will be entering in the fall of 2013. While at camp, boys who are:
Entering 1st grade will work on Tiger
Entering 2nd grade will work on Wolf
Entering 3rd grade will work on Bear
Entering 4th grade will work on Webelos I
Entering 5th grade will work on Webelos II
For Webelos, they will work on and earn their Engineer, Scientist, Handyman, and Sportsman Activity pins.
Cub Scout Day Camp is run by volunteers. There are no paid staff members. Every pack MUST supply one 5-Day Adult Volunteer for every 4 Scouts that attend from
your pack. (Tigers excluded). Without adequate adult coverage, your Scouts may not attend. Tiger scouts attending must have an parent attending with each Tiger scout.
You may work all week or a partial week. However, your pack must have adults who work the days you are not working to have all 5 days covered.
Perks to being a 5-day volunteer:
– Your Scout will receive a registration discount and free t-shirt.
– Your other children, including girls up to the 7th grade, may attend camp as well and will experience their own special fun.
– Have younger children who are not school aged? Bring them too, as long as they are 3 years old and fully potty trained. They will have a wonderful and fully supervised camp experience.
– All girls of 5-day volunteers will be in an all-girl’s den.
– Have an older child who also wants in on the fun? Boys older than 5th grade and Girls older than 7th grade will be signed up as a Venture Scout and help work the camp!
Spending a week at Cub Scout Day Camp with your child – now THAT’s priceless quality time!
WE NEED ANY VOLUNTEERS! – If you can help out for even just 1 day that week, that means we can send more scouts to camp who want to enjoy this great week with their friends. The more volunteers we have, the more scouts can go to enjoy this fun-filled camp.
