Summer Programs

Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces Scouts to the outdoors and helps them develop outdoor skills at an age-appropriate level that will be applied more thoroughly as a Boy Scout. As Cub Scouts progress, the opportunities for outdoor adventures become more challenging.

Cub Scout Day Camp

Day camp is organized by the council and is a one- to five-day program for Cub Scouts. It is conducted under certified leadership at an approved site and during daylight or early evening hours. Day camp does not include any overnight activities. Certification of the day camp director and program director is provided through the National Camping School.

Day camp programs are theme-based and usually include nature, sports, aquatics, and crafts. Den and pack leaders often make up the nucleus of the day camp staff.
