What is Day Camp?

Often called “the camp that comes to the boy,” Cub Scout Day Camp is an organized five-day program for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts conducted by certified and trained leadership, at an approved site. What is offered is a high-quality program brought to you by many dedicated volunteers at a reasonable cost! Cub Scout Day Camps are conducted in accordance with established standards as given in the National Standards for Cub Scout Day Camps.

What is the Purpose of Day Camp?

We like to say that Day Camp is “an adventure with a purpose.” There are several purposes of the Day Camp program which include:

• Providing a continuation of the Cub Scout program through the summer
• Helping the boys maintain their interest and needs
• Giving the pack an opportunity to meet a requirement of the Summertime Pack Award
• Assisting in the recruiting and training of present and future Cub Scout leadership
• Aiding in the progress of transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts
• Strengthening den and pack organizations for a better year-round program
• Having fun!

Who Attends Cub Scout Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is a unique program; it is usually the first major activity for scouts after graduation from their previous rank. At Day Camp, boys begin to work toward their next rank in the Cub Scout program and we use the same ranks to identify age groups as your pack:

• Tiger is for boys who have completed kindergarten (Each Scout requires a chaperone)
• Wolf is for boys who have completed first grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Bear is for boys who have completed second grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Webelos is for boys who have completed third or fourth grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)

What Activities Will Be Available?

Advancement has always been an important part of our Day Camps. The Day Camp programs contains a well-balanced variety of achievements, electives, and activity badges as well as opportunities to earn belt loops and pins in the Cub Scout Academic and Sports Program. Typical stations include Archery, BBs, Sports, Crafts, Cooking, Nature, and others.

How Much Does Day Camp Cost?

The Day Camp fee is $85 per scout (five days of attendance).  This includes a camp t-shirt and patch as well as covering all insurance costs and program materials.
