The BSA National Camp Accreditation Program addresses the requirement for continuous camp improvement in areas such as program, equipment, marketing and communications. This survey, though lengthy will help us identify areas that have the potential for improvement. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to help us meet objective AO-801.
Additional feedback from the day camp chair and program chair will be requested at the day camp meeting in August.

Jungle Theme Song Book
The songbook should be printed front to back and then cut in half. The cover should be customized with the camps name on the cover and the district facebook page and website on the back cover before printing on card stock paper. Staple the book at the fold. Thanks to Susan Driever, Thunder Wolf District Day Camp Chair, for creating this great resource.
Office Depot has a discount card for printing at a great price, and can cut book in half. Go to step 4 and print the card before taking it to the store. Make sure to customize the cover first. Copies can also be printed at the council office for .05 cents a copy; however, the council doesn't have the ability to cut the copies in half.
2017 Camp Dates
Please check the information on the council day camp page and the Google map, and the day camp page on your district website (under the activities tab). Submit any corrections to the council webmaster. The 2017 day camp dates listed on the day camp page were taken from the district calendars submitted by the district committees to the council in the spring.
