Age-appropriate camping programs are packed with theme-oriented action that brings Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts into the world of imagination. Day camping comes to boys in their neighborhoods across the council. Resident Camping is at least a three-day experience in which Webelos Scouts camp within a developed theme of adventure and excitement in a rugged environment. Family Weekend Camping is a themed Cub Scout / parent overnight camping experience.
Additionally, many Cub Scout pack members enjoy camping in local council camps and council-approved national, state, county, or city parks (Council approval is required). The Cub Scout camping program combines fun and excitement with doing one’s best, getting along with others, and developing an appreciation for ecology and the world of the outdoors.

Cub Scout Day Camps
The District sponsored Cub Scout Day Camp Program provides an introduction to Scouting’s Outdoor Program. Activities are conducted in an outdoor setting within your district, close to home and during daylight hours. The program provides an opportunity for continuation of the Cub Scout program and advancement throughout the summer. Program activities may include; swimming, crafts, nature study, games, field sports, and shooting sports.
Scouts participating in Day Camp are better prepared and eager to accept the challenge of Resident Camping. Cub Scout Day Camp is not intended as an advancement camp. Instead, through supervised activities, boys develop self-reliance and resourcefulness, learn age appropriate skills, establish new friendships, and, of course, have lots of FUN.
