Journey back in time to the age of the dinosaurs! Close to home and just as fun! Day Camp is the one of the first steps in the Scouting Outdoor Program. It’s a week of fun, advancement, and adventure at a camp or park close to home. Each day’s program is filled with a variety of exciting activities including water sports, archery, BB Gun shooting, nature, crafts, games, and sports all designed to enhance the boy’s experience.
Your Cubs attend camp with adult leaders recruited from your Pack. There is always some type of family event planned during camp that you may participate in. Of course, you’re welcome to attend the entire week of camp with your Scout, or just come and spend a day.
Discount pricing is available for parents who wish to volunteer, or for families with multiple attendees.
