What activities are offered at camp?

Each specific camp offers their own mix of program opportunities, but most camps offer a combination of BB gun shooting, archery, sling shots, arts and crafts, nature, field sports, fishing, and aquatics.

What is the daily schedule?

Each camp sets their own hours, but most day camps run from 8 or 9 am through 3 or 4 pm.  Twilight camps usually run from around 6 pm to 9 pm.

What is required of the pack ?

The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for the Scouts who attend camp, plus provide for transportation to and from camp each day. Every Pack must have at least one registered adult leader attend camp for every five Cub Scouts.  Additionally, every Tiger Cub (rising 1st grader) must be accompanied by their Tiger Partner.

What additional Paperwork is needed?

Everyone attending camp must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.  Each Scout must also have an additional release form filed with their specific camp. All necessary forms for each camp are located on each camp’s registration page.

What makes these camps different than other summer camps in the area?

The program of the each of these summer camps are designed with the Scout Oath and Scout Law in mind.  Every exercise that your Scout participates in is created to emphasize reverence, citizenship, and fitness.  These camps will also allow your Scouts to get a head start on earning their next rank badge by completing different adventures before the school year even starts.
