Camping is optional. You can come for the day to play games and work on activities with your den. Rather you are camping or not, you must register to attend. Please see info on calendar in Troop Web Host. Sign up here: If you have already registered your account should have been charged on Troop Web Host

SuperNOVA club - deadline to apply is Sept 26th. We have limited spots in the club, so the application below will be used to select scouts for the program. From Lego, have your scout build their vision of a robot that would help them uphold the scout oath. Take a picture of the build and attach it below. If selected, there will be a $20 materials fee required. Financial assistance available, if needed. Application found here:

Carowinds Scare School and No-Boo School - October 7 is day of event. You can purchase tickets on that day as well. To purchase tickets in advance and ensure that your scout receives their patch, fill out form on this site: Open to both cubs and troops and all family and friends you'd like to invite. Palmetto Council receives $1 per every tickets sold. Regular tickets are $37 and season passholders are $6. On form, where it says "Troop Leader" please put your own information. If you buy more than 10 regular tickets, you get one free! Schools will be held between 1 and 3 day of event. Scareowinds is not included, but you can by discount ticket with scare school tickets.

Bobcat Ceremony - will be held at Pack meeting on Sept 25th in the gym. This is for all new scouts Tiger rank and above, and all Tigers. Bobcat is the first rank (other than Lion) that the scouts MUST earn before they can earn any other rank. Their den leaders should be telling you about requirements where scouts learn pledge, oath, law and motto. Ceremony consists of parents/guardians participating and painting the scout's face. We will have alternatives for those scouts that have an aversion to face paint. You do not want to miss this if you have a new scout!

A/B Medical forms - these forms need to be filled out for every scout and everyone attending one of our overnight trips. The form is available here

Scout Questionnaire - this form is for those parents that would like to share information on the scout that would help our den leaders give your scout a better experience. The form is available here

Please let me know if you have any questions!
