A Summer of FUN!

Dear Parents & Scouts,

It's time to start making your summer camp plans! And at Verdugo Hills Council we’ve got a “Summer of Fun” designed for every level of the Scouting Program. That’s right summer 2024 is going to be so - much - FUN!

We’ll bring you the old favorites that you know and love as well as some brand-new program adventures! Get READY as your “Summer of Fun” begins at Verdugo Hills Council!

Cub Scout Resident Camp  at Camp Verdugo Oaks returns this summer with a “Castaway Cove” (shipwrecked!) theme. And Cub Day Camp  is back at St. Dominic's Catholic Church and new for 2024, we are offering TWO FULL WEEKS of CUB SCOUT Day Camp! Get your registration in soon as these programs will sell out!

For those older youth in the Scouts BSA and Venturing Programs, we have the always amazing Shooting Sports Camp  as well as returning favorite “Rescue 911” Camp  with merit badges that emphasize first aid, and the long-awaited Aquatics Camp  with instructions and boating on Castaic Lake and overnights at Camp Verdugo Oaks. These camps are awesome!! AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN UP WITH YOUR UNIT!!

Want to become a better leader? Want to push yourself and learn how to become a true leader? Ropes Academy  at CSUN is the place for you! Take part in this four-day challenge course and challenge yourself mentally and physically!

PEANUT POLICY
FOR VERDUGO HILLS COUNCIL CAMPS

Sensitivity to peanuts and food made with peanuts is an increasing risk to Scouts with such an allergy.  At Verdugo Hills Council, we ask that no peanuts be brought into our camps.

Foods sent in for snack or lunch at our Cub Day Camp should be carefully checked to make sure they are peanut free. Any food or snacks sent via Camp Mail to our Resident Camp Programs should also be carefully checked as well!

This means that all food products can not contain peanuts and can not have the following warnings: “may contain…”, “processed in a facility…”, and “manufactured on shared equipment…”

Scout families can help ensure that our camps stay peanut free by reading packaging labels and by reminding children not to share food with other children at camp.

Thank you for your help in making summer camping in Verdugo Hills Council a healthy and rewarding experience for our Scouts!
