CUB SCOUT PACKS TRAINING & LEADERSHIP STEM-O-rama will be run under Council Family Camp standards, with the Three Fires Council providing trained leadership.

However, if a parent cannot attend, they may ask another parent (not the Den Leader) to be responsible for their Scout. Every boy must be responsible to a specific adult. Webelos may camp as a den with 2- deep leadership, and a ratio of 5 Webelos Scouts to one adult leader. As always Tigers and Lions must camp one-on-one with a parent. Please make sure that you have a permission slip in your possession, signed by a parent or guardian, for any Cub Scout who will be in the care of an adult who is not his parent or guardian at STEM-O-rama. ADULT PARTICIPATION To ensure a quality experience for participating Scouts, the help of unit leaders and adults is expected during STEM-O-rama. Adults should be prepared to pitch in and help with a range of STEM-O-rama tasks, from assisting at an activity station or a staff run program as needed. Adults should help to ensure the safety of all by being observant and always be safety conscious! Please Be Prepared to help us provide a safe and quality STEM-O-rama for all! 5
