Cub Scout Camp

Can you feel it? Cub Scouts camping, having fun, learning new skills, and making new friends! Summer is coming, faster than we realize. Before we know it, Summer Camp 2021 will be upon us. We will be at camp, swimming, boating, shooting, climbing, playing games, hiking, fishing, and enjoying all the grand adventures that summer camp brings. The Camp Staff is being formed, the programs are being prepared and the facilities readied for your arrival. We are excited, are you?

The time is now to start making plans for all of the summer Cub Scout programs. Summer 2021 at the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation will offer our Cubs, leaders, parents and families three distinct programs to enjoy: Cub Adventure Camp, Akela Camp and Webelos Camp.

Cub Akela Camp offers a terrific three day/two-night program for Cubs of all ages. Cubs register and attend along with others from their packs or dens. Cubs will spend their days participating in a variety of structured activities including BB Guns, archery, swimming, crafts, games, rowboats, hikes, and evening activities. These activities are designed to provide advancement opportunities using Cub Adventures. There is no better way to get your Scout’s year off to a great start!

Cub Family Camp is a three-day, two-night program for Cubs of all ages and their families. This program is filled with a lot of fun activities that the whole family can enjoy!

Our most popular offseason program for Cub Scouts is the Invention-NOVA Family Camp.  Our Family Camp is currently the fastest growing camping program at LOTOSR and the Great Rivers Council.  It is available to all levels of Cub Scouts.  Cub Scouts must earn adventures in order to advance.  Through out Invention-NOVA Family Camp, we use the amazing resources of the Invention Lab to teach scouts various adventures.  Our goal is to combine fun with learning. Some of our most popular adventures include Earth Rocks!, Germs Alive!, Super Science, Digging in the Past, A Bear Goes Fishing, and Build It.  In addition to the adventure learning, cub scouts get to participate in activities such as archery, bb guns, wrist rockets, swimming, bouldering, and gaga ball.  Beginning in 2019, Spring NOVA Family Camp will be hosted at the Missouri Military Academy.  Fall NOVA Family Camp will continue to be hosted at the Lake of the Ozarks Scout Reservation. 

There are two Invention-NOVA Family Camps a year. Registrations will open in January 2021.
