Day Camp Volunteers: Day Camps are a 100% volunteer effort. To ensure a successful and safe Day Camp program, volunteers are needed at camp to assist the staff and guide the Cubs through each day’s activities. Your Pack must provide a minimum of 1 adult volunteer each day for every 4 Cubs attending each camp from your Pack. To help us achieve this ratio we ask for each pack to register as a group versus individually, so that you may coordinate within your pack your adult volunteer ratio and schedules. Adults should register early. Packs that do not provide enough adult volunteers may be turned away in favor of those that do.

Note that youth participant registration may now be completed online, though some paper documentation is still required in that case. Volunteer registration is still hard copy only and to be turned in over the counter with any necessary fees ($8 for shirt if not full-time).

Camper Health Form: Signature on registration form implies all health history information included is correct, so far as you know. In the event you are unable to make medical decisions, permission is given to the physician, selected by the adult leader in charge, to hospitalize, secure proper anesthesia, or to order an injection or surgery.

What to bring: Your scout will be active at camp, so make sure that he wears his CAMP T-SHIRT everyday with shorts and CLOSED SHOES. No sandals allowed. Other details will be outlined in a parent’s letter sent to you closer to the start of camp.

Tot Lot / Siblings: All camps, but Live Oak district’s, have a Tot Lot program available for the children of camp volunteers (age 4+ and potty trained). Parents are required to provide lunch and snacks for their Tot and must eat lunch with their Tot. The Tot Lot fee is $10 per Tot. Some camps may also offer a Sibling program for their volunteer’s children. Boys and girls in grades 2-5 can participate in the Sibling program. Call your Camp Director to check. Parents in the Sibling program MUST be working at the camp every day.
