Cub Scout Day Camp - Service Opportunities for Boy Scouts

Posted by kwest on May 16 2018 - 4:36pm

Cub Day Camp has two unique opportunities for Boy Scouts. Firstly, boys ages 14+ are eligible to volunteer at camp as Den Chiefs or in Program Areas. Secondly, Scouts ages 11-13 have the opportunity to earn merit badges by attending the Boy Scout Patrol (BSP). In order to be eligible for the BSP, Scouts do need to have a parent volunteering at camp. This is a great way for scouts to get some merit badges done with friends! Please see attached paper registration form.
