Troop 129

Volunteer @ Cub Day Camp

Hightower Trail Cub Scout Day Camp is June 5 – 9 from 8:30 am – 4 pm at Chamblee First United Methodist Church. Registration is now open, and they need volunteers!

This is a great opportunity for Scouts to earn service hours (up to 30+ hours)! Scouts can volunteer for a day, a couple of days, or the entire week.  Day Camp is entirely led by volunteers, and they always need help.

Examples of how Scouts can assist:

  • You can share a skill or activity with the Cub Scouts (they will provide the supplies you need).
  • You can lead a den of 8-10 Cub Scouts through various activity stations throughout the day.
  • You can lead a nature hike.
  • You can help with registration.
  • You can lead/assist with an activity station. 

Any Scouts who wish to participate should signup as a Youth Volunteer on the day camp registration site (link below). Before you sign-up, see the note around mandatory training at the bottom of the announcement.

Also, Scouts participating in the Summit High Adventure will NOT be able to sign-up for the full week. While technically you can work Monday – Thursday that week, it may be best to sign-up for no more than Monday – Wednesday (to allow Thursday for final packing/prep for the High Adventure leaving the next day).

Please also complete the Volunteer Interest Survey in addition to registering in Tentaroo.

Adults are also welcome to volunteer at day camp (sign-up using the same link above). The following opportunities are available:

  • Den Leaders – Den Leaders travel with the same group of kids all week, helping them get to the right place, managing positive discipline, and overseeing lunch time. You’ll have a BSA Scout (older kid/teen) assigned to help you.
  • Activity Leader – Activity Leaders work at different activity stations, like crafts, obstacle course, map reading, nature hike, STEM, and more. Do you have an area of interest or expertise you’d like to share? Let us know and maybe you can lead an activity sharing this with the Cub Scouts! These positions can be all week, just one day, or something in between. You’ll have BSA Scouts assigned to help you during the activity.
  • Craft Director – the Craft Director works with the Program Director to develop engaging arts and craft activities for the week. During the week, they oversee adult and youth volunteers who help them lead the Cub Scouts in these crafts.
  • Tot Lot Director – the Tot Lot director watches over younger, potty-trained children of those volunteering, typically ages 3-5. They participate in activities like crafts, nature walks, and other activities at your discretion. They are also the only group allowed on the fenced-in playground and to use the flush toilet located in the Scout Hut/craft building.
  • Scout Master – like working with older children and teens? This is the job for you! We have many Scouts who volunteer their time and youthful energy throughout the week, and an adult who can help guide that energy is key! You would work with these volunteers and help them know where to be.
  • Substitute Den Leader/Helper (where needed) – Can you only volunteer one or more days? We are still very, very happy to have you! There’s always a need for someone who can step in when someone is sick or has a schedule conflict. Many hands make light work.

Note that there is a mandatory volunteer training (adults and youth) on Saturday, June 3 at 9:00 am
