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.When Cub Scouts go camping, they gain skills they will use later as a Boy Scout and in their adult lives.


Our 2018 theme for Cub Scout Camps is ‘PASSPORT TO ADVENTURE,’ and we have lots of exciting opportunities for all Cub Scouts and their families! We recommend that Cubs participate in a spring activity, a day or twilight camp in June or July, an 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.

 

Financial assistance is available for Scouts to attend these opportunities.  Campership applications are able to be submitted online starting January 1, 2018 and are due April 6, 2018.

Cub Family Weekend camps are overnight camps for more than one Cub Scout pack. You may hear these events called "parent-pal weekends" or "adventure weekends." Each Cub Scout and Webelos Scout camps with a parent or guardian.

Day camp lasts for five days. It's for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. Day camps are held during the day or early evening. Campers do not stay overnight.

At resident camps, Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts camp overnight during a weekend. Every year, the resident camp has a different theme and different adventures. Examples of themes are Sea Adventure, Space Adventure, Athletes, Knights, and Bug Hunting.
