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 2020. While at Camp, Scouts who are:

  • Entering 1st Grade will work on Tiger (Adult must attend)
  • 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

 

What happens if I change my mind about coming to camp?

CAMP FEES ARE TRANSFERABLE-BUT NOT REFUNDABLE.

If you have to cancel or change your mind a credit can be applied upon approval to your account. That credit can be used towards your next scouting event before 12/31/21. If you are unable to make it and need to cancel please email your District Executive or Heather Sisk in the camping department. Youth asked to leave camp for disciplinary reasons will not receive a refund.
