Camp Henson Family Fact Sheet

Arrival: Check in times will be between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Your unit should be planning to meet at central location (Wal-Mart parking lot) and caravan to camp. LEAVE YOUR CENTRAL MEETING LOCATION

AT 8:00 AM TO TRAVEL TO CAMP. This will stagger arrival times from across the peninsula and eliminate waiting time at check-in.

Departure: The closing ceremony will end at approximately 5:00p.m. Closing ceremonies include a final parade and awards. This is a great time for pictures! Plan to arrive by 4:15 to see the entire ceremony.

Medicals: Every Scout, leader and parent participating at camp must have turned in a copy of the appropriate medical form to their Camping Coordinator. This form will not be returned. See your Camping Coordinator for full details of this policy. Be sure to pack any medicines near the top of luggage, as they must be turned in upon arrival.

Lunch: Family and Friends not staying at camp are invited to eat lunch with their

Scout before leaving for home. Please see your Camping Coordinator for sign-up details.

Mail:  Scouts love to get mail from family members not attending camp with them.
