Facilities

Indoor Restrooms and Showers

Tonkawa Lodge serves as the main shower and restroom facility for the entire camp. A single indoor restroom is also available in the nature building.

Outdoor Latrines

Latrines and porta-pots are located throughout camp - you won't be able to go far without seeing one! They are in all program areas that don't have restroom access and in the campsite area. Latrines are stocked with toilet paper and a hand washing station.

Dining Hall

All of your meals will be served cafeteria style in the dining hall. Due to large numbers of participants we may divide everyone into two groups for lunch and dinner. These groups are assigned by rank.

Check In

8:30 am
  • Check-In begins in the Dining Hall
  • A staff member will greet you at the front gate and direct you to the parking lot.
  • At check-in you will be asked to provide your name and pack number and then turn in your completed health forms (for ALL youth and adults) as well as shooting sports waivers. If you forget to bring them we will have blank ones available for you to fill out.
  • After you have checked in, you will head out to the activity field to play staff-led games until the rest of the group arrives. The opening ceremony begins at 9:15 am.

Den Assignments (Activity Rotation Groups)

Scouts are divided into groups based on rank for program rotations on Saturday and Sunday. You will be divided into your dens on Saturday morning at the Flag Ceremony.

To help speed up this process - please enter the rank for each Scout on the online registration. You should enter the rank that each scout will be in the Fall (example: if they are a Wolf now, they will register as a Bear for Bear Summer Camp).

Siblings will be assigned to a Den that matches their age group. If you would prefer them to stay together with their Cub Scout, please notify the staff at check-in.
