Prepare for launch as we count down to lift-off, A Scout Odyssey! Cub Scouts and their families will learn new skills and make new friends. Twilight camp is a council camp organized by districts and conducted by volunteers from the local area for Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the next school year. Twilight camp is a week of fun with awesome programs and activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, STEM, games and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, fun and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained). Scouts in troops, crews and ships can also volunteer. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger Cub (1st grader).
The registration fees are $75 for registered Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade next school year. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, patch, program supplies, and water bottle. All youth entering 1st grade through age 18 must be registered with the Boy Scouts of America.
Tot-lots (siblings ages 3-5 and potty trained) are $35. Youth volunteers ages 11-13 are $10 and ages 14-17 are $10. Full-time volunteers (those that attend from 3:45 to camp closing daily) are free and part-time and job-share volunteers are $10. A registered parent/guardian must be onsite at all times when tot-lots and Tigers (going into 1st grade) are at camp. The camp is being held at Lomax Arena (1508½ Lomax Rd., La Porte, TX 77571).

A Scout is reverent. They are reverent toward God. They are faithful in their religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion. To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the religious emblems programs. Additional resources are available from Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y). The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs. A class for the Catholic Ad Altare Dei (7th graders and older up to 18) and the Catholic Pope Pius XII for (9th graders and older up to 21) is currently being scheduled.
