Our Mission and Values
The mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. He/she does their best to live up to the Law every day.

• Any prescription medications you need while you’re here (must be in original prescription bottle; will be checked in with the camp nurse)
• Sunscreen – according to youth protection rules, adults may not put lotion on other scouts. Scouts may either use the spray or put their own lotion on or have another Scout assist them
• Water bottle – cups are provided for each camper and water is available at each station so this item is not encouraged however, if the scout is willing and able to be responsible for their own water bottle, they may bring one
Water shoes (like crocs or keens; no flip-flops) for boating. You need something that will hold your heel)

• bug spray
Follow the Scout Law.
If a Scout or participant does not follow the Scout Law they will first be given a verbal warning.
Continued un-Scout-like behavior may result in a Time-out and a meeting with the Camp Director or Program Director.
Should un-Scout-like behavior continue further, a parent may be called and asked to pick-up their Scout from camp.Refunds will not be given.
Day Camp Times
Drop-off and pick-up works very similar to the way it does for the local public schools. The day begins and ends at the Dining Hall.
Drop-off: Please drop your Scouts off between 8:00 to 8:30 am. Dropping them off sooner may result in under supervised situations. Dropping them off later may result in delayed activity time.
Please pick-up your Scouts between 4:30 to 5:00 pm. Coming too soon may result in vehicles moving around camp when Scouts are returning to the Dining Hall. Coming too late is disrespectful to the volunteers who just worked hard all day for your Scouts
Everyday, Day Campers will have an opportunity to visit the Camp Trading Post. Parents may make purchases at the end of each day. Debit/credit payments accepted for sales over $10. Exact inventory may vary however, in the past we have included:
Snacks: lollipops, chocolate bars, popsicles, ice cream treats, electrolyte beverages, and chips ($0.25 to $2.00 each)
Scout Shop Items: Frisbees, water bottles, camping sporks, headlamps, flashlights, wood craft kits, key rings, knife sharpeners, Scout Books, baseball caps, and draw-string bags ($3 to $18 each)
We encourage parents to communicate with Day Camp Den Leader volunteers and/or volunteer Apache District Executive - Trey Eskridge @ email@example.com when concerns arise. We take our responsibility seriously and appreciate the opportunity to make your child's day camp experience a positive one.
Yours in Scouting,

2020 Apache Fall Camporee/Webeloree
Dates: Friday, October 23 - Sunday, October 25
Camp Grimes / Mecklenburg Scout Reservation
Webeloree Chair - TBD

Camporee Chair - TBD
Camporee Theme: TBD
Welcome to the Apache District 2020 Fall Camporee
The Camporee will offer the chance for your patrols to show off their skills at leadership and teamwork.
All activities will require Scouts to use the Patrol Method to be successful.
This event will feature an open schedule, allowing patrols to determine the order of activities.
In order to “be prepared”, it is essential for your Patrol Leaders to read this entire handbook and understand the rules and logistics for this year’s games. This is important because the Patrol Leader will need to lead his patrol.
