Camping takes Scouts on exciting adventures into the natural world. Camping is fun, and it's good for the mind, body, and spirit. It helps Cub Scouts learn to rely on themselves—on their own skills and knowledge. Camping builds character, promotes fitness, and reenforces good citizenship. When Cub Scouts go camping, they gain skills they will use later as a Boy Scout and in their adult lives.

Our 2016 theme for Cub Scout Camps is ‘CSI: Cub Scout Investigators,’ and we have lots of exciting opportunities for all Cub Scouts and their families! We recommend that Cubs participate in a spring activity, a week-long day camp in June, overnight camp in June or July and also an autumn day activity. Scouts love the outdoors and we love to offer fun things for them to do all year long.
