It is the policy of the Council that a full campership will not be granted to any individual Scout.
Campership forms are available from the Council office or may be downloaded. The applications must be turned in at the Council Service Center office by April 1, 2015. Applications turned in after April 1 may not receive funding.
The Camp Program
Tiger Cubs, Wolves & Bears
All boys who have completed Kindergarten but not yet begun 3rd Grade are Cub Scouts. At Camp George Thomas, Cub Scouts will participate in a variety of activities and complete many requirements for belt loops and rank advancements. The main purpose of the activities however, is to have fun outside! All Tiger Cubs, Wolves, and Bears (Cub Scouts) will participate in a pre-set program consisting of one activity period in the following areas:
All boys who have completed 3rd grade but have not yet joined a Boy Scout Troop may participate in the Webelos Outdoor Adventure. Webelos dens will follow a separate program designed to transition them to Boy Scout Camping. During 2015, we will work on both the new adventures (Cast Iron Chef, First Responder, Webelos Walkabout, Camper, and Scouting Adventure) as well as traditional Webelos pins (Readyman, Aquanaut, Forrester, Naturalist, Outdoorsman, and Showman). Each Webelos den will sign up and attend the activities as a group and will furnish adult leaders to escort and attend the activities. For the first time this year, Webelos will camp separate from their Cub Scout counterparts as we work on our activities throughout the day. All deposits, Scout fees, Leader fees, correspondence, etc., should be made ONLY by the PACK CAMP COORDINATOR. This person is responsible for collecting the fees, camp applications, and health forms, along with registering the boys online. No fees or applications will be accepted through any other person. NO CAMPER WILL BE PERMITTED IN CAMP UNTIL ALL FEES ARE PAID IN FULL.
