Camp Aides:

     Boy Scouts of any age & older siblings (boys/girls), who are at least 11 years of age, are invited to volunteer as a Camp Aide.  Service hours will be recorded and a letter providing proof of service given at the end of each Camp session.  If an adult attends camp on Staff or as a Den Leader for the week, older siblings, between the ages of 11 and 14 years may also assist their parent as a Camp Aide.

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:

     Due to program timing demands, all Staff members and Camp Aides are invited to receive a daily complimentary lunch and beverage.
