WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CAMP?
Polar Cubs is a single day program - however due to the unpredictable nature of our winter weather we encourage everyone to dress in layers and maybe bring extra layers just in case! Jack Frost won't keep us down - to make sure you don't miss out on any of the arctic activities we recommend you have the following layers:
Base layer - AVOID COTTON fabrics touching your skin! Cotton will absorb water which can quickly turn into cold toes and fingers! We recommend synthetic fibers such as polyester and nylon.
Warmth Layer - this will be where the bulk of your warmth comes from. We recommend fabrics such as wool, polar fleece or flannel. This is the perfect opportunity to dig out the ugly christmas sweaters and fuzzy pajama pants!
Wind/Water Layer - your outermost layer should be wind and water proof. Most jackets and snowpants have this built in - but if not you can throw a rain jacket over the top of a fleece jacket for the same effect!
Please also make sure that everyone has a water bottle. You will be doing a lot of moving around and it is just as easy to get dehydrated in the winter as it is in the warm summer months!
WHAT FORMS DO I NEED TO BRING TO CAMP?
Every participant (youth and adult) must have a completed health form - parts A and B. We also ask that you come prepared with a shooting sports waiver in case we need to substitute an activity for BB Guns or Archery - this tends to happen when we do not have any snow on the ground. You will hear from the pack if we do not already have these forms on file.
WHAT FOOD IS PROVIDED AT POLAR CUBS?
Every participant will be served a hot lunch - includes main dish, salad bar, hot soup, bread and milk/juice/coffee. Please contact Brian Cretzmeyer firstname.lastname@example.org if you have dietary restrictions and you need to request a special meal.
