You do not need to pre-pay; we will have your selections waiting for you when you arrive at camp and you will pay then using cash or credit card. We will have additional stock of these items in the trading post, but we can't guarantee availability if you don't preorder.

New Firearms Permission Slip Requirement

IMPORTANT: In order to comply with California state law, we must have a specific firearms permission slip for all youth participating in BB guns, .22 rifle shooting, shotgun shooting, or black powder rifle shooting, including Rifle and Shotgun merit badges, at Webelos Resident Camp or Boy Scout Summer Camp. Without a permission slip, scouts will not be allowed to participate in these activities. You can get the permission slip here https://drive.google.com/open… It will also be sent by e-mail to the unit leaders on our contact list for summer camp.

If you are taking advantage of Express Check-In, we recommend including these permission slips with your other paperwork. Otherwise, you will need to bring them with you when you come to camp.

Cyber Chip at Summer Camp

In addition to being required for both Cub Scout and Boy Scout rank advancement, BSA's Cyber Chip is now required as a prerequisite for some STEM merit badges. Scout who plan to earn Photography Merit Badge at Three Falls need to have a Cyber Chip card, for example.
Our STEM department will be offering a Cyber Chip class as an option for both Webelos and Boy Scouts.

For Webelos: Like most activities at Webelos Resident Camp, this is a group activity. You Den Leader can request the class for your group in advance (before you come to camp) and we'll schedule you to attend.

For Boy Scouts: The class will be offered during free time one afternoon during the week. Scouts can sign up individually at camp. For boys who are in 6th grade and up, one requirement is to write and sign an agreement with your parents setting rules for use of digital technology. To help with this, we've provided a sample agreement. You do not need to use this exact form; it is offered as an example. But to complete Cyber Chip at camp, each scout does need to bring a copy of a signed agreement with him to show to his counselor.

Here's a link to the sample agreement:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/14cyvGn6W1xXjuvkLzR58pveYD29TP-ur/view?usp=sharing
