Northern Trail 2018 Twilight Camp
Passport to Adventure

Den Groups By Pack

This file will help you find your camp den name.  Use the rank that you will be next year rather than the one you just completed.   If you find that you registered in the wrong rank, please let the registrar know.  I can be reached at barbara.richer@yahoo.com or come to the pavilion if you don't discover the error prior to camp.

Join us for a week of fun as we explore the world of adventures.  Twilight Camp is the perfect way to start your summer time fun.  Earn Cub Scout achievements, have tons of fun with your den, and meet new Scouting friends!

This is a Twilight Camp" which means that all activities occur between 4:00PM and 8:30PM. No need to take a full day of vacation. Most can adjust their work schedule to accommodate the activity.

What to Bring to Camp

Here is a list of things to bring to camp.

Youth Protection Training

All adult staff and Walking Den Leaders must have YPT training. There have been some recent changes.  If you have a valid Face-to-Face YPT card, this will meet the requirement for YPT for twilight Camp. If your card has expired, then you must take the recently updated National on-line YPT courese. 

Before you start, here are some tips which will make the process a little easier. Go go my.scouting.org log-in and take the course. It may be necessary to create a user ID and password if you don't already have one.  

BSA requires a 2 deep adult leadership at ratio of 1 adult per 5 scouts. Training is valid for two years.   If you are present at camp more than one session during the week you must have this training.  The registrar will need a copy of your Face to Face card or the new YPT training certificate.  You can bring this to Walking Den Leader Training or make other arrangements to get it to the registrar.  registrar@ntrail.org
