Why go to camp?  There are BIG benefits to you and your Cub Scout.

Tonight, I registered my son Ethan for Cub Scout Summer Camp by printing the .pdf documents from the web site, scanning the signed forms, and emailing the completed forms to the Greater Alabama Council (cashworth@1bsa.org).  I also registered myself as a “Webelos I Walking Den Leader” and will organize camp communications for the Pack.  I plan to attend all five days.  If you can volunteer a day to help as a “Walking Leader,” then everyone benefits.  One parent volunteer, per day, is needed for every 4 children that attend from each Den in our Pack.

1)  Complete the Camp Registration Form.
