cub scouts day camp
Cub Scouts can participate in many types of activities including, archery, BB-guns, field sports, nature, arts and crafts, Scout skills, and a variety of other events. All areas (especially range activities) place a special emphasis on safety procedures. It’s a fun-filled week of challenging Cub Scout activities, exciting adventures, and new friendships open to all Cub Scouts.
Five action-packed days filled with fun, learning, and adventure!
Each camp is under the direction of a Camp Director and Program Director trained at the Boy Scouts of America National Camping School. All ranges are under the supervision of staff with hours of training and experience in their field. Safety is the number one priority at day camp followed by fun and adventure.
Scouts primarily sign up and attend day camp with their Pack. The camp is a lot more fun when your den attends together. However, if your Pack is not attending Day Camp, there is no reason why you should miss out on the adventure. A Scout and their adult partner can attend day camp and be matched with a den of Scouts the same age, or, if your entire den wants to attend, that would be even better! We don’t want anyone to miss out on this awesome summer experience. Contact your Day Camp Director to learn about how to attend without your Pack.
An adult that volunteers a full five day period as a day camp staff member will be allowed to have one Scout from their immediate family attend with no fee. Day Camp staff does not include den walker positions. Full payment should be made in advance of camp. Upon the completion of camp and with approval of the Day Camp Director, fee’s will be refunded to staff members who complete a full five days as staff.
Every Scout deserves a week at summer camp. Financial assistance is available from the Council by sending in a campership application with a $20 non-refundable deposit. If a partial campership is approved, a notification will be made as soon as possible. Full payment is due by two weeks prior to the start of the camp week.
Cub Scout Day Camp t-Shirts
Each Cub Scout will receive a Day Camp T-Shirt and patch as part of the event registration fee. During the registration process please indicate the t-shirt size needed. Adults can purchase a t-shirt for $10.00.
Refund Policies and Procedures
Once registration fees have been paid, an individual could become ill, injured, or otherwise unable to attend camp. During the preparation for summer camp, the council will have already incurred expenses related to food and program supplies. Therefore not all fees may be refunded. Deposits are not refundable.
Paid fees are refundable only if a unit or camper cannot be placed in the requested campsite or dates chosen. A 50% refund of fees paid may be issued in the case of accident, illness, or other extreme extenuating circumstances, if requested in writing at least two weeks prior to the event. Conflicts such as sports or band activities are not qualifying circumstances for a refund. However, full fees paid may be transferred to another session of camp. No refunds will be made available for requests made within two weeks of the event and the following.
Refund requests MUST be in writing, include proof and reason for a refund (i.e., a letter from a school official or doctor), and be received at the Miami Valley Council offices by the required date. All camp refund requests must be written directly to the scout executive – no refunds or requests may be made at camp. All refund requests will be reviewed by the scout executive and processed through the accounting department at the close of the camping season. All refunds will be made payable to the unit attending camp, not individual campers.
Our goal as the Miami Valley Council is to become the most impactful youth organization in our region; to be known as a force for good; to build stronger communities and tomorrow's leaders.
