Spring 2018 - The Cubs Awaken! Cub Weekends Updates and Reminders 

Tuscarora Council | Camp Tuscarora

2018 Spring Family Cub Weekends
Cub Scout Leaders and Families, 

We're looking forward to setting off on a Galactic Journey with you for a fun and amazing adventure during our upcoming Spring Cub Weekends! The Cub Weekends will be here before you know it, and with that we have a few important deadlines coming up that we'd like to remind everyone of. Please note:
  1.  If you haven't already, please send your Final Pack Camping Roster (to include rank break-down) with fees to sarah.fernandez@scouting.org, or fax it to 919-734-6540, ATT: Spring Cub Weekend Rosters.
  2. Important: For your Pack check-in process to go as quickly and smoothly as possible when you arrive, please make a note of the following items and share this information with all families who will be in attendance:
    • On the Friday of both upcoming Spring Cub Weekends, the main gate to Camp Tuscarora will not open until 3:00p., it will be locked and no one will be allowed to enter camp prior to 3:00p.
    • Upon your arrival, do not proceed to your campsite or any other area on camp until you have first notified our event staff at the Headquarters building.
    • The entrance gates to campsite areas on both sides of camp will be staffed, our parking staff will have Pack number vehicle cards, and will allow 2 vehicles per Pack at a time back to their campsite to drop gear.
    •  Please keep others waiting in line in mind, and as a courtesy to everyone, drop your gear as quickly as  possible and proceed back to the parking area to allow others entry to do the same.
    • The entrance gates to campsite areas on both sides of camp will follow posted locked/open times during the weekend. (Locked after the Friday evening Leader's Meeting, and remaining locked until either the closing campfire or the end of the event.) Anyone arriving on camp during posted locked hours will need to use a hand cart to ferry gear back to their campsite. No exceptions. NOTE: This rule is in place and enforced to insure the safety of the youth in your Packs and families. The safety of our members is our number one priority.
    • Make sure that you have a Health and Medical Record form completed for everyone camping with you for the weekend. Cubs, adults, AND siblings. (You are required to turn these in at check-in at camp.) Activity waivers are required as well for all Cubs and siblings on camp. Please check each form for missing or incomplete information and/or signatures prior to check in, this will save a great deal of time. 
    • Crossover forms (found in the leader guide) must be submitted at check-in as well, listing each Scout who will be crossing over to a Troop, Cubmaster information and Scoutmaster information for the receiving Troop. While there is no crossover fee, a new BSA youth application is required for all Scouts crossing over to a Troop, and the "transfer" area of the form filled in with all "from" and "to" information completed.
Finally, our event staff have a special request for all families attending Spring Weekends this year. They have asked us to remind everyone to please bring the following items to be used as materials in portions of the weekend adventures:
  1. Recycled soda cans
  2. Recycled plastic water bottles
  3. Empty paper towel tubes, etc.
Start saving them, and if you have them, bring them with you out to camp and we'll take them off your hands at Headquarters when you arrive.
