CIRCLE TEN COUNCIL TWILIGHT CAMP
DUCK CREEK DISTRICT
JUNE 12TH- 16TH, 2017
 MONDAY - FRIDAY
5:00 PM - 8:45PM
PECAN GROVE
ROWLETT, TX

$75 PER SCOUT if registered by April 28
$90 if registered AFTER April 28

Please come early on June 12th for check in. It can be VERY hectic on the first day. Early bird catches the worm and beats the crowd.
Friday is splash day so wear a swim suit. The camp will hang out at wet zone next door after closing ceremonies.

Also scouts like to make little gadgets called S.W.A.P  (Share with a Pal)  these usually are little trinkets attached to safety pins that the boys trade and wear on their hats.  It is great fun seeing the imagination that goes into the creations. Theme is Bug hunters so anything buggy would work well.

THEME: BUG HUNTERS!!!!
EXPECT THE CREEPY CRAWLIES EVERYWHERE!

FOR MORE DETAILED INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT   http://circleten.org/day-camp-twilight-camp

YOU AND YOUR SCOUT MAY ATTEND A DAY CAMP OR TWILIGHT CAMP IN ANY DISTRICT. YOU ARE NOT RESTRICTED TO STAYING WITHIN YOUR OWN DISTRICT. CHOOSE THE ONE THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU. A LIST WILL BE DISPLAYED ON THE WEBSITE LISTED ABOVE.

HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 

S.W.A.P IDEAS be creative!
SUGGEST MAKING ABOUT 150 ITEMS
Tiny bags filled with fake blood and seeds to look like bug guts attached to safety pins
fake worms attached to safety pins
