What to Expect

When you arrive at Camp Tuckahoe, you’ll be directed to one of the two parking areas that we’ll be using that evening.  Once you’ve parked, you’ll need to head to the check-in area to officially sign in and pick up your event supplies. 

At check-in, you’ll receive a bag, event guide, and meal ticket.  You’ll also receive a “passport” which you’ll use to collect stamps at the various information booths.

Program Launch begins at 5pm and runs until 8pm.  You may arrive and depart at anytime during those hours.

Support for First-Time Attendees: 
If this is the first time that you’ve been a Program Launch, please mention that when you check-in.  There is a special passport that has some instructions to help you make the most of the evening.

Evening Program: 
Much of the Program Launch event will take place in and around the camp dining hall.  Each district, the popcorn sale, our camps, and many of the council’s special activities will have booths in the dining hall.   We will also be featuring booths for several additional resources, which will be located on the dining hall porch and the road beside the building.
