Cub Week Pack Volunteer Requirements

Under BSA National Standards, all packs must provide Den Walkers at a ratio of one Den Walker for every four campers. These Den Walkers will accompany the Cubs to each of their activities, help them with the activities, and help maintain general order and discipline.

In addition to the Den Walker requirement, the Kitsap District North Cub Scout Day Camp requires each pack to provide Station Staff to lead each activity station. These station staff will be trained in what to do for their station to run smoothly. The station staff requirements vary with the number of Cubs coming.

3 – 8 Cubs                   One (1) person to help lead a station one of the days of camp

9 – 14 Cubs                   Two (2) people to help lead a station during the week. (One person on each of two days)

15 – 17 Cubs                   Three (3) people to lead a station during the week. (One person on each of the four days, plus an additional person for one day)

18 – 20 Cubs               Four (4) people to lead a station during the week. (One person on each of the four days, plus an additional person for two of the days)

20 + Cubs                    Five (5) people to lead a station during the week. (Two people on each of the four days)

Camp check-in and check-out procedures

The Kitsap District North Cub Scout Day Camp has a STRICT check-in and check-out policy to increase the safety of the individuals that attend Day Camp. At the time of registration, each Cub form will provide a list of persons acceptable to pick the Cub up from day camp. In most instances, the parents will indicate that the Cub will be driving home from camp in the Pack carpool.

Arrival

Each day as the Cubs arrive at camp, they will be checked in at the flag gathering area with their Den Walkers by the adult transporting them to camp. This Roll will be collected during the first station rotation by our Youth Volunteer Den Chiefs.

Early Departure

If a Cub needs to leave prior to the end of the camp day, check out is conducted through Headquarters. Please make prior arrangements by either emailing the Day camp Director, Danny Hall, or by sending a note in with the Cub. Adults picking up the Cub must show a photo ID that matches a person that is listed on the registration form as one of the authorized Cub pick up persons.

End of Day Departure

At the end of closing ceremonies, the Camp Director will dismiss the dens to the care of the Den Walkers.  The Den Walkers will then release the Cubs to the cars and drivers that will be taking them home. Den Walkers – PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SIGN Cubs OUT ON THE SHEET INCLUDED IN YOUR DEN FOLDER.

No-show and absentee

If a Cub does not show up for camp, phone calls will be made from Camp headquarters to locate the cub, unless prior notification has been received.
