There is a fantastic Cub Scout Summer Resident Camp program at
Henson Scout Reservation near Seaford, Delaware.
Cubs and Webelos (CAW) Resident Camp- This is a 3 day 2 night program for Scouts who will be Wolfs and Bears this fall (the Cubs), and a program of the same duration in which many 1st Year Webelos participate.
Webelos Adventure Camp (WAC)- This is the grand finale 6 day and 5 night program for all Webelos.
***For all scouts, exciting programs, designed with the advancement requirements for each level of the program in mind, are presented using a different theme each year. This way scouts can progress through a four year summer program of increasing challenges and adventures that they have never seen before
And parents participate too! One of the primary reasons for Cub Scout camping is to strengthen parent-son relationships.
The camp schedules are set up to minimize the amount of time a parent needs to take off from work to participate. One session is even set aside for entire families to get in on the fun!
The Activities & Facilities
Some activities are shooting sports, games, swimming and fishing, handicrafts, a water carnival and much more. All programs, facilities and meals are provided by a carefully trained and certified summer camp staff. Facilities include canvas tents with platforms and cots, our full indoor dining hall and comfort stations complete with hot water showers and flush toilets! Campers are each awarded a patch to commemorate their experiences and take home memories that will last a lifetime.
HEALTH LODGE - A qualified first aider is on duty 24 hours a day, supervised by a licensed physician. Fire and rescue services are contracted with the Eldorado Fire Dept if needed.
CAMPSITES Scouts and parents live together in a campsite with canvas tents and wooden floors. Each tent has two cots. Tents are arranged around a picnic table with a canvas roof. All campsites have a campfire ring, water and bathroom facilities. A brand new modern comfort station is available for Scouts and Adults.
DEN ORGANIZATION Campers will be divided into camp dens upon arrival. Every effort will be made to keep groups from the same Pack in the same campsite. Webelos and Cub Scouts, however, are not mixed for program.
CAMP STAFF The camp is operated by a high quality, trained staff. All of our key area directors are trained and certified at BSA National Camping Schools. A camp staff member known as a Program Specialist is assigned to each camp den. This young man is responsible for seeing that your den has the best possible experience at camp.
MEALS Meals are prepared in our camp kitchen and served cafeteria style three times a day. Campers eat in our dining hall, where camp staff conducts a program after each meal.
SCHEDULE A Daily Camp Program plan will be prepared by the camp staff for each camp den in attendance. The program plan will contain specific information on activity periods & location as well as information about campwide activities. Activity periods will be in one of many different program areas.
DEN TIME Dens will also be given time to do activities on their own. Practice for the campfire, a fishing trip, or a hike are only a few of the possibilities.
ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES Most activities in the program areas are developed using the advancement requirements from the Cub and Webelos handbooks. A list will be provided of the topics covered. Parents and leaders, however, are responsible for all testing and signing of completions.
