Council Day Camp Meetings

The district day camp chairs and program chairs meet throughout the year at the Cockrell Scout Center or virtually as needed at 7:00 pm.

Calendar   

August 18, 2021 Year-end camp performance review (required for current camp directors and program directors; last year's directors are highly encouraged to attend) 
  • Thorns and roses feedback for last year
  • Submit patch and t-shirt design ideas for next year
  • Submit any program changes recommended for next year

Social Media

Help the council promote Scouting this summer on social media. We are excited to share that each camp will be given two social media frames. Please make these available for parents to take pictures of their Scouts at dropoff and pickup. Encourage den leaders to text pictures of the Scout to the parents to post.

Consider making additional social media frames. Parents will likely want to take more than one picture.  Arne's Warehouse (2830 Hicks St, Houston, TX 77007) has styrofoam social media frames (for ~$9) that make assembling a rocket-themed social media frame easy.  Just wrap the frame in a space table covering, add some space decorations (both available at Arne's), and add some yellow scrapbooking stickers that say Day Camp and #ScoutingInfluencer #LaunchtheAdventure #RelaunchScouting.

If you need assistance posting pictures to your district Facebook page, contact darlene.scheffler@gmail.com.
