2020 Rising Sun

 

Rising Sun will run as a Day Camp in 2020 with 3 different program options to choose from!

Be part of our Rising Sun program where the Scouts are part of our Rising Sun Troop for the week and the camp provides the adult leadership. Scouts may attend by themselves, with friends, or with their patrol and will experience a week of Troop Camp as part of the Rising Sun Troop, participating in all the programs that a troop does at summer camp. Members of the Rising Sun troop are welcome to return for more than one week of camp during the summer. In an effort to include as many Scouts as possible and meet the needs and goals of all of our campers, we have broken our Rising Sun program into 3 Subcamp options - one in person, one virtual and one in between!

 

Maverick Subcamp  

The Maverick Subcamp Option is a full week (5 days) of in person Day Camp at Baiting Hollow Scout Camp running Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. We will schedule one evening during the week where campers can stay until 9:00 pm to participate in some evening programs like a campfire and stargazing. Lunch is provided each day and evening food options will be available on our late night.  

The fee for the Maverick Option is:

Before June 24th -  $325 per Scout per week
After June 24th - $350 per Scout per week

 

Pioneer Subcamp 

The Pioneer Subcamp Option is our hybrid camp offering.

  • Scouts attend camp in person 2 days each week and participate remotely for 3 days. In person attendance runs from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on either a Monday & Thursday schedule or a Tuesday & Friday schedule. At camp, Scouts will work on hands-on portions of merit badges that cannot be done remotely. Scouts will also participate in non-merit badge activities (swimming, shooting ranges, & patrol competitions). Please be sure to select a weekday schedule option when registering.
  • The other 3 days each week will be remote/virtual. The program also runs 8:30 am to 5:00 pm each day. Scouts will work on 4 merit badges through the Zoom platform. Additional remote programming will be provided (virtual campfires, buddy and patrol activities that can be done in a backyard, individual activities with a parent, virtual tours, etc…). During the days at home, the screen time will be broken up by nonscreen activities. Scouts will not be in front of their computer for the entire program. Scouts will require a device that has a camera and microphone. They will need to turn their camera on.
