WILL I WORK ON MY CUB SCOUT RANK?

Most Camp programs are based on a Cub Scout Rank. Many of the activities that are fun provide opportunities to qualify toward rank advancement. 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 the Scout will be entering in the fall of 2019. While at Camp, Scouts 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        
  • Entering 5th Grade will work on Arrow of Light

CAMP FEES ARE TRANSFERABLE-BUT NOT REFUNDABLE.

Requests to transfer fees must be made in writing to: Day/Twilight Camp, PO Box 399, Jefferson, GA 30549. Youth asked to leave camp for disciplinary reasons will not receive a refund.
