REGISTER FOR CUB SCOUT DAY CAMP AT CAMP BULLOWA!

At Camp Bullowa Cub Scout Day Camp, we strive to give your child an opportunity to grow physically and mentally while having a great time. Memories and friendships made at Camp Bullowa will last a lifetime!

Summer Camp Information:

Camp Bullowa is a Monday through Friday week-long day camp in Stony Point NY. There are five sessions.  Program begins daily at 8:30 AM with an opening flag raising ceremony and completes at 3:30 PM with a flag lowering ceremony. The camp is run by Boy Scout youth and Boy Scout adults, known as Scouts and Scouters, respectively. Our top-notch program is based in Scouting traditions including focus on Good Citizenship, Physical Fitness, Nature, Challenging Adventures, and Outdoor Skills. Through the program we look to instill Scouting ideals such as the Scout Oath and Law, and for everyone to do their best, be prepared, and to do a good turn daily.

Centralized bus transportation and early/late pick up times are available for an additional $75 per child per week. The bus schedule for each week will not be finalized until the preceding Thursday. Please sign up early if you are interested in transportation. 

On Thursday afternoon and evening we invite all of our campers and their families to come together for a meal and a campfire.  Parents can come and see what their child(ren) has been working on and accomplished that week, meet our fine staff, see several program areas, and then enjoy some nourishment and a campfire with songs and skits put on by our staff and your children.

ALL CAMPERS must have a completed BSA Medical form, Parts A and B submitted by June 30, 2018. This form can be downloaded here. Completed forms should be submitted electronically to Registration Information:  See Registration links below to register online!

For Cub Scouts: Please have your child's pack and rank information available at the time of registration.

For Non Scouts: While filling out the electronic forms during the registration process, you will be asked if your son is registered in Scouting? If you answer "No" an additional fee of $25 will be added to your total. This is a one time, temporary registration in the Learning for Life Program which is a Co-educational program that falls under the Boy Scouts of America insurance umbrella. This offers a temporary registration and accident and sickness insurance for your child while on our property or participating in Summer Camp events. This only needs to be selected once regardless of the number of weeks your child(ren) are being registered.

Special Accommodations: We are required by the NYS Department of Health to ask this question. You have the right to "not answer at this time." This is specifically looking for mental or physical attributes that will require extra supervision, and may require special action plans and training for our staff. Documentation of the diagnosis from a physician and any written plans of action will be requested  when you submit your medical.

REGISTRATION LINKS: (Cub Scout Camp Only, Boy Scout Adventure Camp registration will open soon!)

Boy Scouts work hard to leave no trace…but the Rockland District Cub Scouts left some tracks today!
The Rockland District, of the Hudson Valley Council in New York, held its 2017 Pushmobile Derby on May 7th. Beating an unusually cold afternoon and light spotted showers, the District Cubs, leaders and families united to show off their hard work on their cars.
And hidden in all the fun was some great learning and advancement opportunities. For young Cubs, building the car is a first opportunity for engineering and construction. The local fire services taught about first aid and fire safety. Local Troops and Crews facilitated everything, including cooking, camping and hiking demonstrations, knots and lashings, crafts and more!
Their hard work paid off. All in all, it was a great day for everyone.  Thank you Jack Meyers for all the great pictures!
