Registration

How Do I Register?

Every pack should have a Pack Coordinator who will act as a point person for Day Camp.  They will be given the registration paperwork as well as important updates about camp.  All forms and payments should go through your home pack.  The pack will make a single payment to council for all their registered day camp scouts. If you pack does not have a designated Pack Coordinator then consider volunteering for the position.  Your Cubmaster will be contacted if your no Pack Coordinator is listed. While we prefer you to bring others from your pack, we understand smaller packs may not have that option.  If you are a single registrant, then contact us for how to register.

Cub Scout Day Camp and the Coronavirus

The COVID-19 Pandemic and the current stay-at-home restrictions have made life very different for at least the foreseeable future.  We understand that you and your families are working through various challenges and decisions, as are we all.  The health and welfare of our Cub Scouts and their families, our Volunteers, and Staff are our top priority.

Mecklenburg County Council has made several health and sanitation related protocol changes that make having a traditional Cub Day Camp possible.  These protocols are presented to the Pack Coordinators and published on the Pack Resources  page of this website.  Should there be any cancellations or schedule alterations, from the state and local government you will be contacted as soon as possible. 

Medication

The Health Officer at Day Camp will collect medications in the morning during check in and administer only medications prescribed by a Doctor.

 

All medications must be in their original container and properly labeled.   Medications will be secured and/or refrigerated in the Health Lodge.  Medications will be returned to the scout just prior to departure daily. Medical Record forms must specify any medications, dosage, and time to be administered, and be signed by the Scout’s parents or guardians.

Communication

All initial communications from and to the packs are filtered through the day camp coordinator.  This allows the same information to be shared with a greater audience.  It is also much easier for the camp director to communicate with 20 day camp coordinators than to communicate with 200 families. In the month before Day Camp, direct communication with parents of registered campers is possible through newsletter sign up, GroupMe app and facebook page. 

Camperships

The Mecklenburg County Council believes that no Scout should be denied access to a great program due to financial need. A Scout is Thrifty, So we do encourage a Scout to show that they are working to earn their way to camp, a training, or activity, but sometimes it's not quite enough.

Through the generous donations from supporters of Scouting, we are proud to offer camperships and scholarships to those in need to attend summer camp. Campership applications do require Unit Leader approval, so make sure you communicate with them that you will be requesting funds. We reach out to Unit Leaders prior to the Campership Committee's deliberation to get more information about Unit need.

Camperships are awarded based upon need, full completion of the application, and timeliness. The committee will review the applications and set award amounts. Once approved, the Council will notify families, and apply the award amount to the Scout’s event registration.

The Scout must be registered for the event that the request a campership for in order for the award amount to be matched and applied the balance. The Scout must stay current with the payment schedule for the event. In the case that a campership award is greater than the balance due when approved, the difference will be refunded. See our forms page for copies.

Refund Policy

All refunding situations are handled on a case by case basis and are handled through the Mecklenburg County Council.
