Adult Volunteer Requirements:

Being an Adult Volunteer is a fun and rewarding experience. But there are some requirements to ensure the safety of all Day  Camp Participants:

  • BSA Registered – To be an adult volunteer you must be BSA registered. If you’re leader with your pack or troop you most likely are already registered. If you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle of a cub scout and are not involved with the pack or troop you need to fill out an application. If you filled out an application to volunteer at camp last year you need to do it again this year (BSA rule, not ours) Download the BSA Adult Member Application on the right side of the screen under attachments.
  • Current Youth Protection Training (YPT) Certification for all Adults. If you are not currently a registered scout leader, you’ll need to send a copy of your YPT certificate with your registration. Don’t worry if you have one, training is online.
  • California AB 506 Youth Protection – All adults working with youth at camp must take the Californa online training and obtain a Live Scan background check.
  • Orientation – To help make this a safe, fun and memorable event for the Cubs, all volunteers must attend at least one orientation/Training meeting, dates and times to be announced.
