Day Camp is open to all Cub Scouts, including Kindergarten graduates, and will offer an unforgettable outdoor experience with activities ranging from shooting sports to science. Scouts shoot BB guns and bows and arrows; work on badges and adventure loops; cook out; sing songs; learn about nature; make crafts; and play games.

If you have not made plans to attend, you should! Going to camp is a wonderful part of the Cub Scouting experience, and it helps your pack earn Scouting's Journey to Excellence and Summertime Pack Awards. The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for their Cub Scouts who attend Day Camp, plus provide for transportation to and from the camps. It is recommended that packs have at least one registered adult leader attend camp for every five to six Cub Scouts. The minimum number allowed at any time is two, of which one of them must have completed Youth Protection Training. Everyone must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.

Camp takes place rain or shine, is easy to sign up for, provides a lifetime of treasured memories and is very inexpensive.

Who Can Attend?

Any registered Cub Scout (including kindergarten graduates) may attend day camp.

What Time Do They Start?

Most day camp programs start around 9:00 a.m. and end around 3:00 p.m. each day. They usually run for three to five days in a row. Your district will provide a Walking Leader’s Guide for your adults, which will have specific schedule of times and programs. If you do not know what district you are in or are unable to reach your district’s day camp director, please contact the Heart of America Council at 816-942-9333 or 800-776-1110. They will put you in touch with the District Executive serving day camp in your area.
