FEE SCHEDULE
Fees include 2 meals (Saturday supper & Sunday breakfast), program materials, patch and Saturday afternoon snack.

     $30 per Cub-Parent Combo
     $12 for each additional Cub Scout or Parent in the same family

Packs must register as a unit. All units must register on the form which can be found on-line at danielboonecouncil.org. Please make sure the form is completely filled out – we MUST have the rank of each boy in attendance. Individual registration will not be accepted. Even if your pack only has one Cub/Parent combo attending they still need to fill out the Unit Registration Form (both sides, please).

Registration is due in to the Council Service Center by 5pm on Friday, April 13 (not just postmarked by that day.) No late OR on-site registration accepted. Fees are nonrefundable and may not be transferred from one weekend to another. Please keep your school system’s Spring Break in mind as you take up money for registration.

Select someone to serve as your Pack Coordinator. This coordinator is responsible for gathering the information, filling out all paperwork, collecting fees and making sure that everything is handed in to the Council Service Center before the deadline. Every effort will be made to camp Pack members together. If you are not in the same campsite you will be close – this is sometimes determined by sleeping arrangements that are requested (tents vs. beds).

The weekend is designed for Cub(s)/Parent Combos. Tigers, Wolves, Bears or Webelos (Arrow of Light boys should have crossed over to the troop) may attend the weekend. Please remember non-scouting siblings are not allowed to attend this weekend. Activities will be set up by rank – Tigers will be doing different activities than Wolves, Bears or Webelos). Everyone will be doing bbs and archery.

*** Remember: No on-site registration will be accepted. Any adjustment in registration (ie substitutions) must be made by 4/3 to Wendy Henderson.

 

Things to remember for the Spring 2018 Cub/Parent Weekend

Check-In is 9am-10:30am. It’s good if the entire Pack arrives about the same time. Don’t forget your bag lunch. Anyone who arrives after 11:00 will check-in at the Pavilion and later at Ledbetter Lodge/Dining Hall.

We go no matter the weather. Remember to check the weather report a day or two before the event. It is usually 5-10 degrees cooler at Camp Daniel Boone. It is a good idea to dress in layers.

At Check-In you will receive an envelope – please be sure to read the “Safety Rules” enclosed. Just a couple of reminders……a) alcohol of any kind is prohibited at all times; b) store any food in your site in a closed container; c) smoking in designated areas only; d) adults must know where boys are at all times

All of your gear will be hauled to and from the campsite. There must be more than 3 pairs (parent-child) in attendance for you to take the gear up in a vehicle/trailer provided by the Pack, we will also be glad to haul your gear. No vehicles will be allowed into campsites on Sunday until after chapel – remember that we “do our duty to God”. All gear should be marked with name and Pack # and organized before your arrival.

No vehicles will be allowed to stay in the campsites. Trailers may be parked at the site (or close).

Gear should be packed in a plastic tote or 1 bag – pack carefully and conservatively. It is very difficult when folks have several individual bags or stacks of blankets. Below is a list of suggested gear.

Should have a simple first aid kit for your Pack. Good idea to have a packet of “baby wipes”.

We provide your supper and breakfast so no need to bring cooking gear or other meal food to cook – if you want to bring a dutch oven to cook a dessert that is okay (you provide ingredients). Boys will get an afternoon snack. No need to bring a lot of extra food. Any “smellables” will need to be put in a container with a fixed lid. Remember no eating in any sleeping areas.

If you bring a lantern remember to follow standards in The Guide To Safe Scouting. Best if battery operated.

If you bring firewood for a campfire you need to talk to the other Pack members attending---don’t need 2 or 3 folks each bringing a “truck load” of wood, remember you will only be there for 1 night. All fires must be attended and “cold-out” at night.
Everyone (boys and parents) in attendance must have a physical form parts A & B {does not require doctor’s signature}. These can just be in a Pack folder or notebook. You will get them back at the end of the weekend.
