We are planning on including an Arrow of Light Outpost in 2022.

 

Tomahawk: 612-261-2455
Registration Questions: 612-261-2450

 

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Cub Arrow of Light Summer Camp is open to youth entering 5th grade in the fall (Webelos rank). 

DO PARENTS HAVE TO ATTEND?

We highly encourage that an adult attend with every Scout.It helps the Scout and is a great experience for the adult as well. This adult can be a parent, guardian or other family member over the age of 18. A den needs one adult for every four youth at camp with a minimum of two adults per group.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

2022 Fees:

$151 Youth Early Bird Fee; $156 Youth after May 1st

$100 Adult

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE FEE?

The fee includes all of your meals, a patch for every participant, housing (tentr), program supplies, and staffing costs.

IS THERE FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE?

Yes! We think that every Scout should have an opportunity to attend Summer Camp and we do not want cost to hold anyone back from this experience. If you are in need, please complete the Campership Form to receive up to 50% of the youth cost covered.

WHEN IS ARROW OF LIGHT CAMP?

Our sessions will typically run from the middle of June to the middle of August. See the Register tab for this year's dates!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

When packing for Summer Camp, make sure to bring what you need to be comfortable for 2 nights away from home. See a full packing list in the Parent Guide Book, but below are some helpful reminders!

  • Swim suit and towel
  • Rain jacket - always be prepared!
  • Sun screen and bug repellent
  • Shower shoes (flip flops)
  • Flashlight
  • Sweatshirt or lightweight jacket - it can get cold when the sun goes down!
  • Thermometer and hand sanitizer

It may be helpful to pack your gear in a plastic tote instead of a suitcase because it is easy to carry and it will keep your things dry in the case of rain!

WHAT FORMS DO I NEED TO BRING?

Each participant (youth and adult) must have parts A and B completed of the Health Form. A health screening form will also need to be completed for each person coming onto the property. Both of these forms can be found under Resources on the right hand side of this screen.

Forms will be turned into the staff at check in on your first night. If you do not have them completed, you will be asked to fill them out once you arrive.

FOOD SERVICE PROVIDED

You will be served 8 meals while at camp. All meals are served in a dining hall building.

SPECIAL DIETARY REQUESTS

We want to make sure that every camper gets a healthy and safe meal. At camp, we are prepared to accommodate for the following restrictions:

  • Dairy Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian
  • Peanut/Nut Free

If you have needs above and beyond those listed above, or if you would prefer to bring your own food, cooler space and a microwave will be made available to you.

HOW DO I INFORM THE CAMP OF MY DIETARY NEEDS?

Please note any dietary needs in your online registration information. This will give the camp staff a summary of all of the needs for a given weekend. Please also inform staff of any dietary restrictions at check in to make sure that they have accurate information. If you have questions regarding food service, please contact the camp directly.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CHECK IN

Gates will open at 6 pm on Friday

A staff member will greet you at the entrance to camp and give you directions on where to park and how to get to your campsite. You will not be able to park your car directly next to your campsite or building so be prepared to walk your gear a short distance to unload.

Once you are in camp, you will be given a detailed schedule for the weekend and a camp tour. Be prepared to turn in your completed health forms.

There will be no meal served on the first night, so please eat dinner before coming to camp.

SWIM QUALIFICATIONS

Each participant, youth and adult, will be asked to complete a swim qualification test. You will not be allowed to participate in any aquatic activities (swimming or boating) until this is complete. There are 3 different levels that participants can check at to fit their comfort and ability level:

  • Learner (Non-Swimmer)
  • Beginner
  • Swimmer

You may have an opportunity to complete the swim check on Friday evening, or you will have a chance to do it at your first aquatic activity on Saturday! Lifeguards will be available on Friday night to answer any questions that you have regarding the swim check.

This might sound scary, but you have no need to worry! Swimmers of all levels will be able to have a safe and fun experience at our aquatic activities! No one will be asked to do anything that they are not comfortable with.

Swim checks can be completed prior to coming to camp under the supervision of a registered lifeguard, see Swim Qualification Record sheet in the Parent Guide book.
