We appreciate your help at our upcoming Kitsap District Cub Scout Day Camp. We have been working long and hard to put together a fun program for the scouts, and we are excited that you will be a part of making our camp a GREAT experience for the Cubs. We cannot put on camp without everyone’s help. We are all volunteers, working together to provide the scouts with new, fun and exciting experiences at camp. No matter how many days or ways you are helping, WE NEED ALL OF YOU!!! You play an integral part in making our camp a success.
On the day that you are volunteering please know what role you are filling, and which pack you are from. This information is available from your Pack Coordinator/Committee Chair or directly from the Camp Director. Please arrive and check in prior to your start time (Station Staff 8:00 am and Den Leaders 8:15 am). Check in at Headquarters to sign in, get your identification for the day, and to review your assignment location. Station Staff then report to the Quartermaster for station supplies and Den Leaders to the gathering area.
Den Leaders **Very Important ** remember to bring ice and a cooler each day if your kids will be bringing a cold lunch. Please make your arrangements ahead of time!!
We have two Mandatory Leadership Trainings! Please plan to attend both.
The FIRST is TBD via ZOOM. If you CANNOT attend this meeting, please let us know asap so we can make alternate arrangements. The meeting link will go out to all volunteers on June 10th.
All volunteer online registrations and youth protection training certificates MUST be completed by this date.
The second training will be on EITHER July 9 OR July 10, 2023 (CUB WEEK VOLUNTEERS) OR July 16 OR 17, 2023 (WEBELOS WEEK VOLUNTEERS) 6:00 pm AT the Kitsap County Fairgrounds (NORTH CAMPGROUNDS – woods BEHIND the soccer fields).
Please leave your Cubs home during both trainings if at all possible. We want to preserve the surprise as long as possible.
A few reminders:
- The Campers will look to you for leadership. Always wear a smile and speak with kindness and respect.
- Please do not ever be alone with a Scout, even your own Scout.
- Discipline is your responsibility when at camp. However, if a camper is getting out of control and walking/station leadership needs help – let the Camp Director help at Headquarters.
- Please silence your cell phones during camp. They are very distracting to the scouts and distract you from watching/helping the scouts. This is your opportunity to be involved with the cubs, having fun and helping them do THEIR BEST!
- Bring your smile, sense of humor, and enthusiasm. This is a wonderful opportunity for you!!
- Good shoes – CLOSE TOED/CLOSE HEELED are a MUST. You will be on your feet all day.**
- Dress for the weather and with modesty. You will be very active during the day, be aware of your clothing and the youth that will be around you.**
** At the Camp Director’s Discretion failure to comply w/last two will necessitate a trip home to change.
