Day Camp is a week-long adventure for fun with a purpose! Cub Scouts get the chance to shoot BB Guns, Bows & Arrows, work on crafts, play games, learn about nature, and work towards badges.

The Day Camp program is designed for this year's graduating Kindergarten (Tiger), First (Wolf) and Second grade (Bear) Cubs. Again this year we will have a special Webelos program that will provide unique and challenging opportunities for the older boys.

The Northern Tier District Camp is staffed with trained, qualified leaders who will ensure your Cub Scouts enjoy a wonderful summer-time experience.

How to prepare:

A pack needs to appoint a Pack Day Camp Coordinator who will provide their contact information to the Camp Directors. This person will be responsible for ensuring the accurate and timely registration for your boys.

  • Each pack will also need a full-time, “Walking Leader”. This person needs to be 21 years of age, a registered member with the BSA, and they must have completed Youth Protection and Fast Start training. This person will attend camp with the unit each day and will be fully informed of all details of Day Camp. Each pack will need an additional adult, to satisfy the two deep leadership requirement.
  • Openings are available for adults and youth, 14 years of age and older, to serve on our staff.  Each unit attending should provide staff to help run the program at camp as listed below.

    1-6 campers = 1 staff

    7-12 campers = 2 staff

    (1 additional staff for each 6 boys attending)
