2018 Cross Timbers District Day Camp

Hello Cub Scout Packs!
The new year is fast approaching……….please have a Happy New Year!!

Attached is information about the 2018 Cross Timbers District Day Camp……….Passport to Adventure! 
We would like as many Cub Scouts as possible to join us! 

For more Information contact our Day Camp Director – Chris Gaston at  

Some Requests from our Director:
We need one person from each Pack that will be a Day Camp Liaison, preferably a Pack Committee position.  Our goal is to have one person that is the contact for Day Camp and is responsible to see that all forms are 100% complete.  Please send the name of that person to Chris.  

Also, please send him the dates for your Blue and Gold, and your Pinewood Derby, so the Day Camp committee can visit with information. 

We also need help finding Red shirt Volunteers (Boy Scouts and Venture crew) to work Day Camp.   We will need a Scoutmaster for the Red shirts as well…..any suggestions?  

We need as many adults as possible, helping at Day Camp, to be CPR/AED certified.   BSA/Day Camp standards are “at least 50% of staff be certified”. We will announce some classes in March soon, with Robert Palmer from Longhorn Council, at Trinity or St.Barnabas UMC. 

Please let us know if your Pack plans to participate.   Your Day Camp Committee is hard at work planning a great week of Adventures!

Thank you for all that you do for Scouting!
