Camp Daniel Boone is a fabulous summer experience that gives Scouts the opportunity to work on Merit Badges and enjoy a whole lotta fun with Scouts from Troop 58 as well as Scouts from other areas. Camp Daniel Boone is nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Canton, NC (near Asheville).
The campus and staff are amazing...making this a not-to-miss experience. New Scouts participate in the Goin' Great program that will help accelerate their start in the Scout program (see Goin' Great guide in Helpful Information list).
As we get closer to going to camp we will have more information on transportation. Prepare that you may have to transport your scout to camp independently.
INDIVIDUAL TRIP INSURANCE (Optional)
After the May 1, 2021 cancellation deadline, any fees paid are non-refundable. So if you are unable to attend camp for illness, family reason or denied entry to camp due to medical checks then your fees paid would be non-refundable. However, individual trip cancellation insurance is available through several insurance carriers. This insurance will cover all expenses of your trip including fees paid to the troop in addition to the camp fee, with no deductible. The purchase of trip cancellation insurance is the responsibility of each scout/family. No refunds or exceptions will be made due to failure to purchase trip cancellation insurance. For some insurance coverage, you must secure the policy before January – when the first payment is made. The troop is not recommending any particular insurance provider, it is your responsibility to assess the need. Again this is completely optional.
Please start planning your doctors appointment for your physical. It is required for Part C of the Health Form. See the "CDB Camp Forms Checklist" on this page. A good general practice would be to schedule this late spring, so that all forms are turned in by May 2021. All other forms are not needed until May 2021.
