Magical Adventure Camp

By the Experts in camping

 

Have an experience of a lifetime, right in your neighborhood. We bring Adventure Camp to you!

Join our Professors for a week filled with potions and spells at Magical Adventure Camp! Our students will learn how to be the best Witches and Wizards this world has ever seen! Wands and spellbooks will be your tools of the trade, so Be Prepared!

Adventure Camp is a summertime day camp program for boys and girls, from 1st grade through 6th grade, to get outside and do activities with their friends. It’s a fun and exciting camp experience! Campers spend each day with their group (or House) and visit a variety of program stations. At the end of the day they return home. It’s a place for campers to test themselves, participate in new activities, make new friends, and learn something along the way.

3rd Grade Reading Guarantee

We think reading and communicating is pretty important for any successful camper, and the State of Ohio would agree. That's why Adventure Camp is committed to helping campers achieve the Third Grade Reading Guarantee through its programming. Each and every camper will receive one of the world's most popular children's books: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and our camp program is centered around JK Rowling's imaginative world. Each day we'll dive into her literary world, and emerge better readers.

    FAQs

    Frequently asked questions will aggregate here for quick answers to popular questions!

    I want to volunteer as a Group Walker with my camper for the week. Do I have to pay to attend?

    No! We truly value our volunteers who spend the week with us! Not only will do you attend for free, but we include lunch and a t-shirt for every volunteer. Plus, if you volunteer for all five days of Adventure Camp, you we'll reimburse you $75 for each of your child/children's camp fee(s).

    Should we register as a Pack or should I have each Parent sign up their campers?

    Registering as a Pack is the best way to get the most participation out of your Pack. We've put together this quick guide to make it easy for you to start the Pack's registration, and then have parents complete it and pay for their individual campers.

    What are the age restrictions for Adventure Camp?

    Campers must be at least six years of age, or completed kindergarten (Adventure Camp is not appropriate for Lion Scouts). Important: If they are entering the first grade in the Fall of 2018, they must have an Adult Partner attend with them each day of camp.

    Our family has some financial needs. How can we get assistance in paying for Adventure Camp?

    Lake Erie Council believes that no Scout should be denied camp due to financial reasons. We offer many ways for Scouts to show that they are thrifty and fund their own adventure through popcorn sales and the Scout's Own Maple Syrup sale. We encourage Units to be involved in these unit funding opportunities. For Scouts registered in our council, we also offer camperships through the generosity of camp supporters. If you have any questions or concerns about paying for camp, please get in touch.

    I see that early drop-off and late pick-up are available to fit work schedules. What does that mean?

    We do our best to accommodate the busy schedules of today's parents. Regular check in begins at 8:30am, and regular pick-up is at 5pm. Early drop-off will begin at 7:30am, and late pick-up is available until 6pm. During these extra hours, campers will have low-energy activities to participate in while they wait. Please indicate on your registration if you will take advantage of this opportunity. Please send your camper with a snack to tide them over!

    What rank do I select when registering my Scout?

    Rank is determined by the grade your Scout will be in the Fall school year. i.e. A Scout going into 2nd Grade would be considered a Wolf during Adventure Camp.

    What is the difference between Adventure Camp and Cub Scout or Webelos Resident Camp?

    Resident Camp is an overnight experience that includes meals and tent camping. Each camp will offer separate crafts, sports, advancement, science activities and its own unique experiences. Adventure Camp is the first step in the camping progression as a day-only program. Scouts spend each day with the same group and visit a variety of program stations. At the end of the day they return home. 

    Do Tigers (or First Graders) need an Adult Partner to come to camp with them?

    Yes. According to BSA Policy, any camper entering First Grade in the Fall must have an Adult Partner at camp with them.

    Can Lions register for Adventure Camp?

    No. Youth going into Kindergarten in the Fall are not able to participate in Adventure Camp.

    If a youth is attending with their parent, is that parent considered a volunteer/pack leadership?

    Yes, but make sure that they are comfortable with rounding up the rest of the group's campers throughout the day for activities, meals, etc.

    If campers register individually online, and select their Pack #, will they be assigned to the same group?

    Campers will be organized into groups according to their age and rank (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, etc.), but, yes, we’ll do our best to keep Scouts from the same Pack together.
