Eligibility and Transportation
To participate in Cub Scout Day Camp, a boy must be registered with a Cub Scout Pack. Boy Scouts of America registration is $14 in addition to the Day Camp cost. This includes boys who are just beginning as Tiger Cubs (as of June 1). No person or groups will be excluded because of race, color, national origin, or hardship for participation in Cub Scout Day Camp. Transportation to and from camp is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Participants will receive a camp T-shirt on the first day of camp. Each camp participant is required to wear an official camp T-shirt everyday with shorts/pants and closed toed shoes. No open-toed shoes will be allowed. Each camper will need to bring water (refills available at each station) and lunch. Snacks will not be provided.
Each attendee must bring any medication, including inhalers and epipens, which need to be given to the Camp Medic stationed at camp. All medications must be picked up from the Camp Medic at the end of each day. Minor children will transport no medications.
The “Tot Lot” provides a Day Camp experience with activities for young children of Staff members, Den Leaders and parent volunteers. In order for a child to attend Tot Lot, a parent MUST be in camp while they attend. We do not provide day care for Scout siblings. In addition, each attendee must be toilet trained or other arrangements made.
Our camp has an exciting program for incoming Tiger Cubs in order to introduce them to the fun of both Cub Scout Day Camp and Scouting. Tigers are invited to attend the week’s camp activities. Any incoming Tiger who registers for camp needs to have an adult partner accompany them every day. Incoming Tigers must also complete a BSA Cub Scout registration form. A list of District Packs will be provided to encourage continuing in Scouting following Day Camp.
Our camp is staffed with volunteers and without adequate parental assistance our camp could not function. No experience is necessary and there are a wide variety of positions that need to be filled. Volunteering your time, even if it is just one day, will allow you to reap the benefits of a great program and have fun with an awesome group of boys. Come join the fun and excitement! To find out about volunteer opportunities available, please contact the Camp Director, Carla Jensen @ CarlaJensenBSA@yahoo.com
Boy Scouts & older siblings, who are at least 14 years of age, are invited to volunteer as Camp Aides. Service hours will be recorded and a letter providing proof of service will be given at the end of each camp session. If an adult attends camp on Staff for the week, older siblings, and those between the ages of 13 and 14 years may also assist their parent as a Camp Aide.
Den Leaders, Volunteers and Staff Members
All camp Den Leaders, Volunteers and Staff Members are required to attend a Camp Leader training session prior to camp. The time and location will be announced at a later date. This training is mandatory for our national standards and accreditation. In addition, each adult must also have taken Youth Protection Training. Youth Protection Training may be taken online at www.scouting.org. If you have taken the Youth Protection Training within the past year, you do not need to repeat this for camp. You must however, print and provide your training certificate prior to the start of camp.
Registration, Camper-ships and Refunds
Anyone interested in attending camp must submit a complete registration form and health form. Fees must also be paid in full with the completed registration form. Full and partial camper-ships are available for families with financial hardships. Please contact the Chief Solano Day Camp Director or Registrar information about financial assistance. If you are unable to register on-line through the MDSC web site please contact Julie at Julie.Graham@Scouting.org
Camp fees are non-refundable except in cases of emergency. Emergency related refunds require a written request to the Camp Director. Each case will be considered on an individual basis.
Confirmation notices will be mailed/emailed upon acceptance of completed registration packets. Den Leaders and Staff members will also receive a confirmation letter, with their assignments noted, and training dates announced.
