Day Camp Volunteers Needed

Attention Scouters! Day Camp needs your help. As of now we do not have enough parents to run Day Camp. We need one adult per three scouts to be there ALL FOUR DAYS. If your unit has four parents coming one day each, that only counts as one parent. Youth protection dictates we need two leaders per den of ten boys, each day. If we do not have enough leaders for each den, that den would not have two deep leadership and your boys will not be able to participate in all the crazy fun-nes we have planned.
I know we all have busy lives, but we have four volunteer staff planning and hopefully executing this year’s day camp and we can’t do it without parents spending time with their kids.
Please call or text me, the Camp Director at 231-9570 or my wife Laura the Program Director at 781-1458. I have also attached the adult volunteer form. Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles of the kids are all welcome. Thanks!
Adult Application

First Day Camp Registration Deadline April 29th

To get the lowest possible price for your unit, please come see Laura, Stephen, or Christy at the back of the Scout office between 12pm and 8pm. Please have health forms completed and signed for each participant, youth protection certificates for every adult, and full payment. Thanks!
