2017 Foothills District Cub Scout Day Camp: “Bug Squad”
Dates: June 12-16, 2017 8:30 am – 2:30 pm (Friday camp will end at 12:30 pm)
Foothills Day Camp is a wonderful way for Cub Scouts of all ages to participate in scouting fun over the summer. The boys will earn belt loop achievements and electives that will help them along their journey to achieving their next rank in Scouting. This is a wonderful way to lighten the load on Den Leaders and a great way to bolster your year round program. Volunteers come back from camp ready to help out in their units. The camp needs 1 adult volunteer (5 days) for each 4 boys that attend. Adults can volunteer for 5 days with extra incentives such as a discount, and the opportunity to bring girl siblings or "tots" (age 3 to 4). Adults can also volunteer as a "partial week" volunteer.
The boys will get to participate in a shooting sport (BB's) as well as STEM activities and special assemblies and other activities that they enjoy such as crafts, games, and other activities. We'll have the Chattahoochee Nature Center there and other vendors that provide fun activities! We'll have further updates and feel free to visit the District Web Page (more information to be added soon, look for the updated page).
To register: Advertise this to your unit. Appoint a Pack Coordinator to handle the registration process, forms, and volunteers for your unit. Payment can be made on Double Knot once the link goes live. Your pack does not need to attend as an entire group (though encouraged to bring them), all scouts are welcome. However, please coordinate registration forms and payments through your unit. Read the attached forms for detailed instructions on how to register.
New Tigers are welcome! If you have rising first graders, send them to camp. Siblings and scouts planning on joining in the fall can get a jump on the fun! Scouts at camp will be classified as the rank they will be in the fall! LDS scouts should verify rank with their leadership.
Spread the Word, Join in in on the Fun! Give the scouts this opportunity to have fun! and help us provide the adult volunteers to make it happen.
