Hello Pack 703 Families!
Registration is open for Cub Scout Summer Day Camp and I wanted to write to let all of you know a little about it so that we can get everyone who is interested signed up before our Pack registers prior to the April deadline.
Cub Scout Summer Day Camp is put on by the BSA’s Silver Comet District and is a week-long of fun for the Scouts. As a parent volunteer from last year, I can verify that all of the attending campers had an incredibly fun week and it’s a very affordable camp that your child(ren) will love.
Here is the official description:
Day Camp is an outdoor experience where Cub Scouts participate in individual and team sports, games, crafts, explore nature, and work on achievements, electives, and activity badges. Boys have fun in the outdoors, that’s Cub Scout Day Camp.
This year’s theme is Creepy Crawlers and should include a lot of information about bugs and spiders. Among other fun activities there will be Archery, BB Guns, Water bottle rockets and slingshots. Last year they had a rock wall, compass activities and nature hikes, and much more.
Pack Deadline – Around April 1st we will be finalizing our materials together to submit our Pack registration, so if you are thinking of attending then please let myself (Tim Gambon), Britni Cress or Ashley Hardeman know so that we can help you to get any applications and health forms submitted in time. We will be accepting registrations at the Blue and Gold Luncheon on March 25th and other opportunities to give us the forms and payment can be arranged.
Dates of camp – June 5th thru 9th
Camp Location – Kennesaw United Methodist Church, 1801 Ben King Road, Kennesaw
Cost – $120 per Scout for the week (parents volunteering to help for the Camp week can take $20 off)
What you need to participate –
General District Website for more detailed information
Volunteers! – As I mentioned earlier, I was a volunteer for the Camp week last Summer (as were a few of our other Pack parents) and cannot recommend it highly enough. It’s very fun and you will likely get to interact with your Scout(s) throughout the week and participate in the many fun activities that are available. In addition to being very fun, it helps our Pack as we need to have one Adult volunteer for every 3 Scouts that attend the Camp from our Pack. And again, there is a $20 discount on the Scout Camp fee if you volunteer all week. So if you are interested in volunteering or just want to know more then please contact myself, Britni or Ashley.
Pixies – Smaller children of volunteers (3 and up, potty-trained) can be looked after in the Pixie program at the Camp all week for $75
I hope that many families are able to take advantage of this great program this Summer, please let me know if I can help answer any questions or make the process of registering easier for you.
