Leaders and Parent Guides understand that they will be outside and walking in the heat, humidity, and other weather conditions that *may* be physically demanding. Please consider this when deciding to attend Akela Cub Scout Day Camp. The Leader’s Guide will be available in the Spring with more details.

These forms must be submitted with your registration. Anyone without a current Health Form will not be allowed to remain in camp.

This is NOT a baby-sitting service - a parent must remain on camp property at all times. There is a weekly fee of $25 per Cubby. Cubbies enjoy games, crafts, and other fun activities while at camp. They will swim in the shallow end only, with signed swim agreement. Cubbies must be potty trained.
