2020 Multi-Week Adventure Camp

Calling all Tigers*, Bears, Wolves, Webelos and AOLs! 

 

Join us for up to four weeks of Adventure Camp. This year's theme is "Down on the Farm!" Scouts may attend one week, two weeks, three weeks, or ALL four weeks of Camp!

 

Multi-Week Adventure Camp is a day camp open to boys and girls who are entering grades 1-5. W. D. Boyce Adventure Camps are primarily geared toward Cub Scouts, but we are not a closed organization camp. ANYONE is allowed to attend and learn the values and skills associated with the Boy Scouts of America. It is our pledge that every child who attends Adventure Camp will have a stronger character, fitness habits, and appreciation for citizenship. 

 

Each camp location will host a variety of age appropriate program areas. Activities vary by location but may include archery, BB guns, Scout skills, fishing, swimming, games, and more! 

 

Multi-Week Adventure Camp programs are facilitated by a combination of a trained camp staff and local volunteers to provide an exceptional experience for your children this summer. Leaders and parents are welcome to attend Adventure Camp to help at a specific activity or help walk the scouts to program areas. It is free for adult volunteers to attend camp and it is lots of fun! 

 

*TIGERS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THEIR ADULT PARTNER THROUGHOUT THE DAY

Parents and Adult Walkers

 

Each pack is required to send one adult “walker” for every five Cub Scouts to walk with the Scouts from station to station and help the Scouts at program areas each day. Walkers do not have to be the same person all week. It is the responsibility of the pack leadership to make sure their pack has the appropriate number of walkers secured for each day and communicate with the camp director. A walker does not have to be a registered member of the BSA, however they must be willing to actively help and portray the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

*Tigers (boys and girls going into 1st grade) must be accompanied by their adult partner throughout the day.

Extended Care and Transportation Option

Extended Care is a program designed for parents who have to work outside the normal day camp hours. Rather than make additional child care arrangements or miss out on camp, let the well-trained staff supervise your kids with hours of extra program!

The cost for Extended Care is $25 per child for each week and is NOT included in the regular fee for Multi-Week Adventure Camp. Extended care is offered at each location Monday-Friday starting at 7:30am with last pick up at 5:30pm. Parents or adults picking their child up must arrive with a photo ID and be listed on the child's health form as a person allowed for pickup.

In the Bloomington area, there will be a transportation option. A bus to and from Comlara Park will pick-up and drop-off your children at Eastland Mall by Applebees. The bus leaves at 7:30am and will arrive back at Eastland Mall at 5:20pm. There will be an additional fee of $25 per child per week. The bus will be supervised by trained staff members as well as any adult volunteers. Bus drop-off and pick-up will be the same hours as Extended Care with drop-off being at 7:30am and last pick-up at 5:30pm. More information is available in the Program Guide.
