IMPORTANT - Cub Scout Day Camp - DEADLINE to turn in forms is Monday's Pack Meeting

Posted on Apr 22 2017 - 11:01am

 

Summer may seem far away, but it’s time to register for the famous Cub Scout Day Camp!  Please complete your son's summer day camp registration now. Your son won't want to miss the fun June 19-23rd at O'Neill Park. The camp registration is:  https://orangecounty.camp-master.com

All registrations must be completed online and all health information submitted by the Monday, April 24th Pack Meeting. 

Online Registration and Payment:

Registration and payment is completed online only. To register your scout, adult volunteers, siblings (for sibling camp or to serve as youth volunteers) please go to https://orangecounty.camp-master.com. Pack 623 traditionally registers together for the AM session (8:00-1:30 p.m.), but you can choose the PM session, if you prefer.  Please register your cub as the rank he will be in the FALL (example: this year’s Wolf will register as a Bear for summer camp). 

When you register, remember that we are a "gold" Journey to Excellence unit (we get a $5 discount), plus you will get the $20 early pricing, so the total you should pay to register your scout is $135. If your family is in need for consideration for a "campership" (a partial reduction in the camp fee), please contact Alesha Doherty. 

Health and Medical Forms and Copy of Health Insurance Card:

While registration and payment are done entirely online, you must complete and turn in a paper copy of the health forms for each registration - this includes scout, adult volunteers, siblings in sibling camp and sibling youth volunteers.  This is due by April 24th.  Please fill out Parts A and B of this form. That form is located at http://daycamps.ocbsa.org/medical.htmYou MUST include a photocopy of the front and back of your health insurance card if you have insurance – for EACH person attending.  (Please note that you may get an email confirmation when you register that the health forms aren't due until 5/13 - but that is the drop dead date for all paperwork to be 100% in by all packs.  In order to process and ensure ratios and completeness, I need every form by April 24thth.  THANKS!)

Additional Details:

A t-shirt will be included for your camper.  It is recommended that you order a size larger than he normally wears.  Adult volunteer shirts will be provided to adults that volunteer 3 or more days during the week.  Additional shirts may be purchased during the registration process for $10 apiece. 

Siblings may attend sibling camp (other than registered sister campers mentioned above).  Children must be 3 - 10 years old and potty trained. Siblings are only allowed at camp while their parents are in camp volunteering with Cub Scouts. Siblings are not allowed to accompany parents to the program areas.  Sibling camp children will be $5 per day up to $20 (so, if a parent volunteers for one day, the sibling will be $5.  If a parent volunteers all week, the sibling will only cost $20). 

Adult volunteer training dates are May 31st (7-8 p.m.) and June 3rd (9-10 a.m.).  Please plan on attending ONE of these dates. 

Youth 11 years and older are able to sign up as youth volunteers.  Youth volunteers must attend one of the mandatory training sessions, June 7 (7-8 p.m.) or 10 (9-10 a.m.). (Day Camp organizers were very clear that youth not attending one of these trainings will not be permitted to volunteer).  Youth that are interested in working on the archery range also need to sign up after April 1 at http://saddlebackdaycamp.org.  Youth volunteers will pay $15 for the week and they will be fed lunch each day.  Youth volunteers may help 3-5 days during the week. 

In Summary:

1. Go to https://orangecounty.camp-master.com  to register and pay for your scout, adult volunteer, sign up for sibling camp (ages 3-10 & potty trained), sign up youth volunteers.

2. Please do us a HUGE favor:  Sign up on our Pack 623 website registration: http://www.pack623.com/node/2822  This is the main way we can ensure we have everyone's paperwork and that no one gets lost in the process.  This also enables us to specify our Pack scouts to stay together, as I need to request this.  I can only do that if I know your son is attending - and since you register online through the district, our Pack website registration is my main way of making sure our boys are together.  Also, adults please specify if you are volunteering and for which days.  And if you are flexible on days, that would be great!!  Our pack is responsible for a 1:4 adult to scout ratio so it is a great help to know!  Thank you!

3. Complete a health medical waiver for EVERY person attending camp (scout, adult, sibling) AND attach a copy of the front and back of your health insurance card for EACH person.  This packet of health information must be turned in by the April 24th Pack Meeting. http://daycamps.ocbsa.org/medical.htm

4. Attend volunteer training (adults and youth volunteers each have training days)
