Excitement is waiting as Cub Scouts travel the world on a passport to adventure as they learn new skills, and make new friends. Day camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the 2018-2019 school year. An awesome program is being planned with activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, games, and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, fun and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained) or girls ages 6-13. Boy Scouts and youth ages 14-17 can also volunteer. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (1st grader).
The registration fee is $51.50 for the first Cub Scout and $50 for each additional Cub Scout. Siblings are $25, and adults and youth volunteers are $10. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, patch, program supplies, and much more. A registered parent/guardian must be onsite at all times when tot-lots, siblings and Tigers are at camp.

Friends of Scouting
Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, businesses and community organizations to support Scouting. The $33 registration fee goes directly to the national office of the Boy Scouts of America. If a Scout unit collects dues, that money stays with the unit to help pay for supplies, advancements and other activities. None of that money helps the Sam Houston Area Council. In order to keep Scouting affordable for all youth, the council runs an annual Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign.
Friends of Scouting helps:
- Recruit and train youth and leaders
- Provide assistance to those in need
- Keep camps and activities affordable
- Enhance programming and facilities
- Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders
Friends of Scouting contributions provide approximately 24 percent of the support the council receives each year. The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect and life-long values.
Unit Leaders: Each unit is requested to hold a FOS presentation at your unit’s biggest gathering (typically the blue and gold banquet or a troop court of honor) during the months of February through May. The presentation, which takes approximately seven minutes to conduct, informs parents and leaders of all council services, its financial needs and extends an opportunity to help fulfill the need. Please sign up for a presentation.
