Day Camp


It's time to get ready once again for Cub Scout Day Camp!


June 5-8 at Harvest Church in Watauga from 
8 am to 4 pm 


Cubs that are Tiger will be grouped together for their programming and will walk the stations daily together. Wolf and Bears (those entering grades 2-3) will be grouped together and Webelos (those entering grades 4-5) will be grouped together.  


Be ready for adventure, learning, new skills, fellowship and lots of fun! Cubs will enjoy a wide range of daily activities including sports, nature, scoutskills, arts & crafts, BB's, archery, den time and group time... you name it.... we'll do it!


New Tigers are welcome!  That's right!  Boys entering grade 1 (for the next school year) are eligible to attend Day Camp. Tiger adult partners or guardian must attend camp all week with their Tiger as the Tiger program is a parent/Scout partnership.


The Mustang District Day Camp has a facebook page that you can follow for updates and questions.  You can find that link here.


Each scout receives a camp t-shirt, cap, patch, craft supplies and all the goodies needed for a week of fun.  Cubs must bring a bag lunch each day, no refrigeration is available and parents should send freezer packs if necessary. One adult (Chaperone) is needed from our pack for every 5 scouts to escort the adventurers through camp. All Chaperones must complete the IN PERSON Youth Protection Training (YPT) and provide proof of completion.

Adult registrations

Volunteering Adults MUST REGISTER

Registration requirements are as follows:  
  • For a participant
  1. Health form (hardcopy)
  2. Registration
  3. payment
  • For adult chaperones or volunteers
  1. Adult health form (which includes background information)
  2. Registration
  3. IN PERSON Youth Protection Training 
  4. Payment (for t-shirt.  All registered volunteers are expected to purchase a t-shirt. If you are volunteering all week, however, one will be given to you.)
If you have a current health form on file, that will be good through the end of day camp. If you don't know, feel free to complete a new one here and turn that into the Day Camp Coordinator ASAP.  You need to complete Parts A & B. 

The experience isn't limited just to Scouts.  Younger children who are kindergarten-aged or lower can attend the tot-lot. They must by potty-trained. The "tot-lot" is located within the church in an air conditioned Pre-K classroom.  It is usually around $10 per child and is good for the entire week or just one day... however long a parent is there to volunteer.  
 



VOLUNTEERS

The Mustang District needs many volunteers to guide and teach.  We are always interested in volunteers. We generally have two different types of volunteer positions available.


Chaperones – these are the adults that travel with the boys from station to station throughout the day. If you are interested in being a chaperone, please see April Driggers. We need TWO ADULTS for every TEN BOYS.


Camp volunteer staff – these are adults that will staff positions at day camp. These positions may be stations for crafts, education, fun, BB/Archery ranges, the tot-lot, etc. If you are interested in this type of a position, please let April Driggers know and she will put you in touch with the Day Camp Director.


While it is not a requirement, we do ASK that each parent that registers a scout up for Day Camp to volunteer at least one day as a chaperone.  This helps ensure that our required ratios are met and that they do not split up our Pack due to insufficient chaperones.  Stated differently, if we can ensure that our dens are adequately covered by chaperones, we stay together.  If we cannot, there is no guarantee that your den will remain intact and they will be split up and boys stuck with other groups that do have sufficient coverage.  We do NOT want that to happen so we ask that you please volunteer.  We will need volunteers every day of camp.  If you have a more flexible schedule and can fill in where there is a need, please let April know.




REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

All Adults must have the following forms:

All Cubs must have the following forms:
All Youth Staff must have the following forms:
Once your registrations have been processed and paid -- PRINT OUT A COPY.  We need either an electronic or hard copy of this not only to ensure that everyone who registers shows up on our Pack's list, but also to make sure we have adequate chaperones for each day of camp as well as to verify t-shirt sizes before distribution, etc.



THEME

Each year the Day Camp has a theme.  This year's theme is CREEPY CRAWLIES. Your summer destination for outdoor adventures and Cub Scout FUN.  A week of outdoor fun for Cub Scout & parents featuring themed stations, BB guns, archery, hiking, crafts, games, outdoor skills, advancement, & more! It really is your summer destination for outdoor adventures and Cub Scout FUN! 




DAILY DROP OFF

As you drop off your son each day, he will walk inside the gate and proceed to the football stands.  Everyone will be assigned to a Den with a special name (those will be assigned this weekend).  Those dens will each have their own row of bleachers to sit on.   




DAILY PICK UP:

Parents must use the car pick up sign that has been e-mailed to you all registrants.  If you do not have this sign, you will be asked to park and go pick up your camper from the service desk with a valid ID.  




TRAINING

All Chaperones must have a current IN PERSON YPT (Youth Protection Training) card. Upcoming training will be added to the Scoutbook calendar.  If you attend, please provide pack leadership with a copy of your card.  This will be scanned in and attached to your profile.



CAMP ATTIRE

Camp attendees and chaperones/volunteers are expected to wear the t-shirt every day. Comfortable shorts and footwear as well as sun protection.




WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP

Bring your lunch -- be sure it is NUT FREE.  Day camp is a nut free camp this year.  Water bottles and backpacks will be given out the first day of camp.  Also, please make sure all belongings are clearly labeled with your son's name and Pack 1910.  Sunscreen is a must! And if you've seen those neck coolers (wrapped bandannas that have water absorbing crystals inside) are a great idea to beat the heat!



WHAT NOT TO BRING TO CAMP

Electronics are a no-no.  Anything with peanuts are a no-no.  Please do not bring soda... let's set a healthy example.
