Some Summer Service!

22 Apr

Hey Troops!

Working at Day Camp is a great way to earn service hours. Older Scouts who need service hours for Star or Life can check out one of our 5 local Cub Scout Day Camps and attend 1 day or more days to help out… here are the dates and locations of the Camps in our area:
May 30-June 3 Lumpkin Twilight Camp at Pine Valley Recreation Area on Hwy 9 from 5PM-9PM
June 6-June 10 North Forsyth Camp at Church of the Good Shepherd from 9AM-3PM
June 13-17 Dawson Day Camp at Lumpkin Campground from 9AM-3PM
June 13-17 South Forsyth Day Camp at Midway UMC from 9AM-3PM
June 27-July 1 Cumming Day Camp at Christ the King Lutheran Church from 9AM-3PM

Scouts and Troop Leaders can help out in many different areas like woodcrafts, Scout skills, art, shooting ranges, sports and games… every camp is a little bit different! If you’d like to help out 1 or more days, let me know by emailing me at davictor@bsamail.org and be sure to tell me which camp you’re interested in helping out. You can also go ahead and fill out the Staff Registration Form and mail it in to the Scout Office here:
Day Camp
C/O Northeast Georgia Council, BSA
PO Box 399
Jefferson, GA 30549

SCOUT LEADERS! This is a great opportunity to build a relationship with Cub Scouting units in your area which helps ensure good cross-overs into the Troop! Also, your Scouting knowledge and expertise are invaluable.

CUB SCOUT LEADERS – We need your help too! Use the Registration Form to register… for more information on Cub Scout Summer programs, view the previous post here on the Otter Blog and be sure to share with your friends!!!

Families will love the hundreds of displays, crafts, live music, and demonstrations by Police, Fire, and EMS Explorer teams competing.

Anything goes… just be sure to read the rules before you decide what your display will be…

Special Events – stay tuned for a listing of additional special events as we get closer to ScoutBLAST. There will be live music, Scouting Displays all day long, and of course, The Council Pinewood Derby Race. Don’t forget the new open class race called Contenders and Pretenders!
