Cub Scout and Webelos Scout Day Camp
Cub Scout Day Camp provides fun and adventure in the outdoors for packs and dens. Cub Scout Day Camp registration is open to all registered Cub Scouts. Day Camp is very affordable. Fees include hat, t-shirt, water bottle, activity patch and program.
How Do I Register for Day Camp?
The Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered in one three-part medical form.
Parts A, B and the Addendum are to be completed annually by all BSA unit members. All three parts are required for all events that do not exceed 72 consecutive hours, where the level of activity is similar to that normally expended at home or at school, such as day camp, day hikes, swimming parties, or an overnight camp, and where medical care is readily available.
Please submit these forms when you arrive at Day Camp on the first day - Day Camp Health Form, Colorado Health Form Addendum
Day camp is an organized 3-to-4-day program for Tiger Cubs (and their adult partner), Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts under trained leadership at an approved site, during daylight or early evening hours but not overnight. Day camp youth participants are limited to registered Tiger Cubs (and their adult partners), Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. Adults referred to as Group Guides must accompany every one to five Cub Scouts or one to five Webelos Scouts. All Tiger Cubs (in 1st grade for the 2014-2015 school year) must be accompanied by an adult partner. All Scouts who register as individuals must provide their own Group Guides.
