Early registration discounts (if offered) ends 3/15/2023.
Late fees (if applicable) shouldn't begin before three weeks before camp. Late fees can be turned off or the date changes if no one has paid it, so watch for this. Late fees don't apply to Tigers as many packs are recruiting in the spring.
Registration closes two weeks before camp. The camp director can request an extension of the registration close date, if needed, but we advertise two weeks out for planning purposes. With camp director approval, Scouts can be added until the day of the event, if you have space. Adults can be added until one week before the event due to the required background check.
Due April 20, 2023
The day camp program is to be approved by the camping (day camp) committee.

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.
