Pack 197 Families,

Maintaining the safety of our scouts, families, and volunteer leaders is our top priority. As news continues to spread regarding the impacts of COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus, we wanted to proactively reach out with our current plan of action.

After discussion, both Nathan and I agreed that it is best for all Pack 197 activities for the remainder of April to be placed on hold. Den leaders will contact you and hold virtual meetings as resources allow.

We will re-evaluate late April/May and will provide an update to families as the city / state / country endures these difficult times.

Yours in Scouting.

2020 Arrowhead District Twilight Camp – June 15-19, 2020
Arrowhead District Day Camp is live for registration! Here are the details so you can decide if your Scout can attend:

How to Register
Here is the link on the Simon Kenton Council website to register for Arrowhead Day Camp.

How much does it cost?
Fees based on payment IN FULL by date listed.
Early Bird Fee (by 3/31) $85
Regular Fee (by 5/15) $105
Late Fee (after 5/15) $125
Adult participants/walkers/den leaders are $15

NEW
Arrowhead District is a twilight camp this year with camp hours of 4:00-8:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Still offering the same fun camp activities while enjoying summer’s longer sunlight.

If you are looking for traditional daytime hours still at Camp Lazarus, I recommend looking at Buckeye or Delaware Districts.

Do I need to attend camp with my Scout?
Yes and no. If you have an incoming Tiger Scout (currently a Lion for 2019-20 school year), they must have a parent/guardian attend every day of camp with them.

If you have any other Cub Scout, you do not need to attend every day, but we would love it if you did! This camp is not like your typical camp. These are all volunteers giving up their day jobs to volunteer at camp. That said, we can’t have camp without them (or you!). Work with your den leader to identify who can be at camp with the Scouts. Each pack is responsible for sending 1 adult for every 5 scouts, each day.

For questions, please reply to this email or reach out to Sarah O’Bryan, Arrowhead District Day Camp Director, at 913.226.8596.
