Camp Set-Up/Tear-Down:

     We ask that as many people that can, come.  The more we get set-up during at this time, the less we will have to do the first day of Camp.  This will have things move more smoothly and make the Camp more enjoyable for you and your children.  Set-up will start at 10:00am on both days.  Parent Orientation will begin at 2pm, the same day as set-up.  T-shirts can be picked up at this time.  Our camp needs to leave the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds the Sunday after; as per our contract with them.  The more helpers we have to accomplish this, the better the result.  The camp needs to get packed up in a timely fashion; making it easier to set-up camp the following session and the following year.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Dates:
Set-up:
June 17 & 18, 2017
Tear-Down:
June 23 & 24, 2017
 

 

Camp Uniform:

     Each Camp participant is required to wear the official camp t-shirt everyday.  Our Camp involves a lot of walking.  We advise that every participant wear an older pair of sneakers (with socks) daily.  The Scouts will be exposed to sprinklers with may soil/ruin a new pair of shoes!  There are no sandals allowed in Camp... not on Cub Scouts, Camp Aides, or Adults.  Anyone wearing sandals will need to leave the Camp site or sit in the Administrative Area until appropriate footwear is provided. 

 

Lunch/Water:

     Each Cub Scout and Den leader is responsible for providing their own lunches and drinks for the lunch time period.  It is advised that each Camper put their healthy lunch inside a  labeled, one gallon zip-lock baggie... with a frozen drink inside to help keep their lunch cool.  Den Leaders are expected to provide a cooler with ice for the storage of their Den's lunches.  It is encouraged to coordinate with other parents within the Den to take turns providing ice for the cooler.  Camp will not supply ice for individual Den coolers.  One-day parents are required to bring their lunch on the day they attend camp.
