What should I bring to camp?
Cubs is a single day program - however due to the unpredictable nature
of our winter weather we encourage everyone to dress in layers and
maybe bring extra layers just in case! Jack Frost won't keep us down -
to make sure you don't miss out on any of the arctic activities we
recommend you have the
- Base layer - AVOID COTTON fabrics touching
your skin! Cotton will absorb water which can quickly turn into cold
toes and fingers! We recommend synthetic fibers such as polyester and
- Warmth Layer - this will be where the bulk of your
warmth comes from. We recommend fabrics such as wool, polar fleece or
flannel. This is the perfect opportunity to dig out the ugly christmas sweaters and fuzzy pajama pants!
- Wind/Water Layer - your outermost layer should
be wind and water proof. Most jackets and snowpants have this built in
- but if not you can throw a rain jacket over the top of a fleece
jacket for the same effect!
Please also make sure that
everyone has a water bottle. You will be doing a lot of moving around
and it is just as easy to get dehydrated in the winter as it is in the
warm summer months!
What forms do I need to bring to camp?
participant (youth and adult) must have a completed health form - parts
A and B. We also ask that you come prepared with a shooting sports
waiver in case we need to substitute an activity for BB Guns or Archery
- this tends to happen when we do not have any snow on the ground.
What food is provided at Polar Cubs?
participant will be served a hot lunch - includes main dish, salad bar,
hot soup, bread and milk/juice/coffee. Please view the attached
