PAPERWORK: Campers: Each scout must have a current BSA Medical on file with the Camp Registrar.

  1. Adult In-Camp State Compliance Form (available here)
    Completed BSA Medical Form (available here)
  2. Face-to-Face Youth Protection Card (or Number)

Please send paperwork to Twilight Camp Registrar.   

ACHIEVEMENTS

Each evening is filled with fun activities that are age-appropriate and built around advancement for each Cub Scouting level (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos). There will be plenty of opportunity for your son to earn credit toward achievements and belt loops. After camp is over, your cubmaster will receive a report showing achievements completed in each activity area. Note: It is the responsibility of your pack to provide belt loops and other rank items earned while at camp in accordance with your unit’s policy.

MEDICATION AT CAMP

If a camper is bringing medication to camp, it should be in the original labeled container and have the camper’s name and specific dosage instructions. The adult volunteer assigned to your den will collect all medications and turn them in to the camp medical officer. Asthma inhalers and Epi-pens may remain with the camper.

VOLUNTEERS

All volunteers – staff, adult volunteers, and junior staff – must wear the current camp t-shirt while at camp, must attend a camp training sessions, and must be Youth Protection certified. For security reasons, persons not wearing a camp t-shirt will be escorted to headquarters to register their attendance.

TIGER CUBS (Boys entering 1st grade in Fall 2017)

Each Tiger MUST be accompanied by an adult partner who is their parent, legal guardian, or a trusted adult and the adult listed on the camp registration form). Every Tiger adult partner is considered an adult volunteer for camp and must be registered and attend required camp training sessions and Face To Face YPT.

MEDICAL RELEASE FORMS

Texas State Day Camp regulations and BSA policy requires that every adult or child attending camp must complete a registration form and have a medical release form with actual immunization dates (month and year) on file with the camp medical officer. Any registrations turned in without immunization dates on medical form will be returned as an incomplete registration. Adults need to have the date of their latest tetanus shot.

PARKING

All cars must be parked in one of the park’s lots or along Valley View Lane.

TRANSPORTATION

Parking is very limited, so car-pooling with others in your Pack is strongly encouraged. Parents not picking-up their own boys will need to designate who will be responsible for picking up their sons each night on the registration form.

SIGN-IN / SIGN-OUT PROCEDURES

Scouts must be signed in with registration upon arrival. Likewise, scouts must also be signed out with the walking den leader before departing. Late arrivals and visitors must sign in with the registrar. Visitors will be clearly identified at all times by a visitor name tag. Early departures must also check out with the registrar before leaving.

FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Is Twilight Camp?

Twilight Camp is an annual weeklong Cub Scout Camp held during the evening in the summer. It is five full evenings of activities (three for Tigers) that are not only fun, but also educational and informative. Each evening, your son will participate in events such as archery, BB guns, sports, crafts, and scout skills. There will be plenty of excitement and opportunity to earn credit toward achievements, electives, and belt loops. Evening activities are built around advancements for each level (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos) and are age appropriate. Our camp staff members are some of the best adult volunteers in Circle Ten Council. Each one is qualified and trained for their specific activity. Our main purpose is for the boys to have FUN!

What Do I Get For My Money?

Your Cub Scout will receive a sharp-looking camp T-shirt, a camp patch, and activity materials. He will meet many other boys and have loads of fun and probably earn some belt loops, too! (His pack will be responsible for presenting him with those awards.)

What Are The Egg Drop Rules?

Can your egg survive the fall during Friday's lunchtime entertainment?  "Drop" off your entry before 4:30pm in the box near the first aid station.  Don't forget to label the outside of the container with your name, rank, and camp den name.  See all of the rules here.

How Can I Help?

Parent participation is strongly encouraged and welcomed! If you would like to participate, please register as an “adult volunteer.” To be an adult volunteer you must complete the registration form and agree to the terms, take face-to-face youth protection training, attend one of the Twilight Camp training courses, and pay the appropriate fee. Please retain a copy of any youth protection cards submitted with your form. Your pack must provide one adult volunteer (“walking den leader”) for every 5 boys of each rank (Webelos I and Webelos IIs are combined). If you do not meet this ratio, you will be combined with a group that has sufficient adult volunteers. Without sufficient adults, we CANNOT hold camp and may limit attendance.

My Son Is Not A Cub Scout. Can He Still Attend?

Yes! Simply fill out a BSA Youth Application and submit it with all the other Twilight Camp forms. To obtain a Cub Scout application, call our district executive at the number below. This form may be submitted with your registration form.

My Son Just Completed Kindergarten. Can He Attend Now?

Yes! If he’s not already become a “Tiger Cub” by joining a local Cub Scout pack, simply fill out a BSA Youth Application and submit it with all the other Twilight Camp forms. BSA policy requires that an adult partner (parent/guardian) accompany each Tiger Cub during Scouting events. In addition, Texas State camp regulations require that every adult participating/volunteering at camp be a registered and trained volunteer, so Tiger adult partners must also be registered and trained Twilight Camp adult volunteers.

Do You Have Other Questions?

For registration questions, contact the registrar or the camp director listed below. Questions about specific activities should go to the program director. For all other inquiries, contact the camp director.

TWILIGHT CAMP TRAINING

Staff members and Walking Den Leaders (WDL) who are 18 years and older are required by the State of Texas to have taken the Face-to- Face version of Youth Protection Training (YPT). Face-to-Face YPT certification is valid for 2 years. If you took the Face-to-Face version last year, then please provide your training card number to the registrar. Otherwise, please sign up for one of the Camp- or Circle 10 Council-sponsored Face-to-Face YPT course dates listed below:

Successful certification from the Face-to-Face Youth Protection Classes is required to attend camp as an adult.
