Day Camp

Our day camps provide children with positive and fun experiences that build character, new friendships and a sense of belonging that will last beyond the summer. Sessions are led by experienced and nationally trained staff. We also partner with local community organizations to bring additional program opportunities to your child.

Attend with your Den or Pack

Cub Scout Day Camp is a great Den or Pack activity. Dens and Packs are encouraged to attend Day Camp together, although not necessary — it makes for a great day camp experience.

Each specific camp offers their own mix of program opportunities, but most camps offer a  combination of BB gun shooting, archery, sling shots, arts and crafts, nature, field sports, fishing, and aquatics.

What is the daily schedule?

Each camp sets their own hours, but most day camps run from 8 or 9 am through 3 or 4 pm.  Evening camps usually run from around 6 pm to 9 pm.

The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for the Scouts who attend camp, plus provide for transportation to and from camp each day.

What additional Paperwork is needed?

Everyone attending camp must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.  Each Scout must also have an additional release form filed with their specific camp.

What makes these camps different than other summer camps in the area?

The program of the each of these summer camps are designed with the Scout Oath and Scout Law in mind.  Every exercise that your Scout participates in is created to emphasize reverence, citizenship, and fitness.  These camps will also allow your Scouts to get a head start on earning their next rank badge by completing different adventures before the school year even starts.
