Important Smilin V Information

Also see below for a list of things you need to know. The first part of the list pertains to district or council events only. The second part pertains to weekend camping.

Please be aware that all vehicles must remain in the parking lot and that you may bring wagons or carts to help move gear to campsites.

The kitchen in the large pavilion is not available. The pavilion is not reserved this weekend, so it may be used by all.

The only place a ground fire is allowed is the campfire ring in Campsite 6. If you have a fire in this ring, please make sure it is cold to the touch when done.

Please be aware that hammocks are not allowed on Capitol Area Council properties.

Close-toed shoes are required in camp.

Smilin V does not have trash service. All trash must be packed out by the units.

All running water on camp is potable and safe to drink.

If you have not been to this camp before, when you see the metal gateway with Smilin V on it go just past this entrance to the double gates. This is the parking area. Head toward the large cedar bridge at the end of the parking area or to the left toward the pavilion walkway. There are signs at each of these locations indicating the direction of the campsites.

Our Scouts have fun, make friends and experience adventures while building character, improving physical fitness, and developing a spirit of community service.

Meetings:
Cub Scouts have two types of meetings: Pack (all scouts) & Den (scouts in a specific based on grade) Meetings.

Costs:
Registration Fees: $120 for New Scouts (1st - 5th) and $135 for Kindergarteners includes Lion Book. Returning Scout Fee is $100.

The Registration Fees cover: Pack Meetings. Most Den Meeting costs except for the occasional special event. Pinewood Derby Kits. All patches and awards that the Pack will present to your scout.

Additional Fees throughout the year if you choose to attend these optional events include: Camp-outs range between $10-15/person; Sleepovers $55-85/person; Blue & Gold Banquet $10-5/person; and occasionally other special events like Hockey or Baseball Nights. If you choose to buy a Handbook for your Scout’s Rank it will be $25, also optional.

We encourage scouts & families to “earn their way” by participating in annual fundraising efforts; popcorn/peanut sales in the Fall. This fundraiser helps offset the additional costs of approximately $150 per scout that are not covered by the registration fees.

All of your scouting costs can be covered if your scout sells enough popcorn during our Fall Fundraiser. This is not required but encouraged and appreciated.

Step outside Sunday night and you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the total lunar eclipse. Late in the evening, the full moon is slated to pass directly into Earth's shadow cast by the sun, illuminating the moon a brilliant red. According to NASA, the moon will begin to enter Earth's shadow – also known as the umbra – around 10:30 p.m. ET on Sunday. Totality – or the period when the moon is fully immersed in Earth's shadow – will begin at about 11:30 p.m. ET and last for roughly an hour and a half. The eclipse ends just before 2 a.m. ET Monday morning. As it is a lunar eclipse, it is safe to view with the naked eye.

Have fun!
