These give campers a head start for advancement in their handbooks for their upcoming rank.

  • Entering 2nd Grade will work on Wolf              • Entering 3rd Grade will work on Bear
  • Entering 4th Grade will work on Webelos         • Entering 5th Grade will work on Arrow of Light

Staff/Volunteers

I’M JUST A PARENT - HOW CAN I HELP?

Camp is staffed entirely by parents and volunteers. WE Need YOU to be a part of the FUN! When you volunteer to be a chaperone, you will be asked to attend Staff Training. You can volunteer to help out by registering online and completing the Staff Registration by Clicking Here.   The Camp Director will contact you with the details of camp. Volunteers who register at least two weeks prior to the start of camp, and help during the entire camp will receive a camp t-shirt. The Staff Training you receive is designed to provide the knowledge and skills you need to fulfill your duties as a chaperone.

Packs should send at least one adult chaperone for every five Cub Scouts who attend Camp.

If a staff member attends Camp Staff Training, helps out every day that Camp is held, and pays a registration fee for his/her son, he/she will receive a $25 Scout Shop gift certificate at the end of camp. Gift Certificates are good for merchandise at one of the Northeast Georgia Council Scout Shops, which are located in Lawrenceville and Jefferson. There is a limit of one gift certificate per boy and two per household.

IF I VOLUNTEER, WHAT DO I DO WITH MY NON-SCOUT AGE CHILDREN?

Camps have a special program (Tot-Lot) for the younger children of Staff volunteers. All children that stay in the Tot-Lot must be potty-trained. Some camps may require a small fee for Tot-Lot supplies. If a fee is required, it is due on the first day/evening of camp.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
