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, Derry 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 14th, and 8:00 on June 15 & 16. 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. 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.
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.
