Indoor Restrooms and Showers
Tonkawa Lodge serves as the main shower and restroom facility for
entire camp. A single indoor restroom is also available in the
Latrines and porta-pots are located throughout camp - you won't be
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.
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
- 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.

Den Assignments (Activity Rotation Groups)
Scouts are divided into groups based on rank for program rotations
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.
