Frequently Asked Questions
What is day camp? Day camp is a district-sponsored program that gives cub scouts a chance to
experience the activities of a summer camp without sleeping overnight. The program includes many of the same activities Scouts would try in Cub Scout resident camp in a setting that is close to home and planned as a shorter day. A trained Camp Director and Program Director staff the camp. Volunteers who are active in Scouting packs and the community guide all activities.
Where is day camp held? Our day camp is being held at the Kingston Veterans & Sportsman’s Club
located at 138 Kingston Club Road, Latrobe Pa 15650. There is a parking lot in front of the building where you can park for drop off & pick up. Registration takes place in the large pavilion behind the main building. There will be someone in the parking lot to direct you.
How long is the day camp day? The day camp day begins at approximately 7:30 on June 12th, and 8:00 on June 13 & 14. Opening flag ceremonies begin at 8:45 am. The day ends with closing at
approximately 4:30. Please plan on having arrangements to pick up your cub Scout at this time.
What will the program include? The program will include archery, crafts, b.b. guns, nature, field sports, special events, and scout skills. A special all-camp program is planned for Friday afternoon when families are invited to join their Scout in camp for awards and closing ceremony.
What should each participant bring? Participants should carry a water bottle with them throughout the day. Scouts should have rain gear (ponchos, etc.) in case of a little liquid sunshine. Each pack can decide if their Scouts will bring sit-upons or any other individual equipment. Remember-no sandals for Scouts or adults! Lunches will be provided each day. A menu will be available in mid-May. There will be a trading post at Day Camp with a variety of items available.
What should each pack bring? All supplies needed for the Day Camp program will be provided. Any other equipment is at the discretion of the pack leaders.
How many leaders should accompany our Scouts? A “walker” is needed for every 4 to 6 Scouts your pack brings to camp. Leadership should be “two-deep” at all times. This means that the Scouts are walking from station to station with at least two leaders at all times.
What if it rains? In the event of rain, day camp activities will continue as scheduled. Alternative activities will be planned in case of thunderstorms. Should day camp need to be cancelled due to weather, either prior to the start of the day, or during the day, email notifications will be sent, Pack leaders will be contacted, and information will be available on the Laurel Hills Day Camp Facebook page.
When will we receive any other information we might need? You will receive a letter home with your cub scout on the first day of camp. This will include information for the Friday afternoon program.
