Attention Parents of Webelos Age Scouts ( Those Scouts entering 4th or 5th grade after June 2012)
There are many opportunities for your son to attend Day, Overnight & Resident Camp this year, and it can be quite confusing for many parents on what the differences are and where they are located. The Pack and Chicago Area Council belief is that is very important for your son to try and make one of these camps this year; with 5 different dates to choose from there should be no excuse to have your son attend a session. Also money should be no objection as the council has provided two options to help aid you financial for anyone of these camps. See further below.
