Get ready for a "dino-mite" summer experience with Cub Scout Day Camp and Jurassic Cubs! From archery and sling shots to sports and STEM, one summer camp stands out when it comes to preparing kids for life. We’re talking about Cub Scout day camp.

So just what is Cub Scout day camp?

  • Children in incoming grades first through fifth 
  • Day camps are not overnight camps. They involve four to five days of daytime activities outdoors.
  • Day camps usually focus on Scouts earning achievements based on nature, cooking, shootings sports, crafts and most importantly, FUN!

Cub Scout day camps are distinct from other summer camps in that they prepare younger children for overnight camping by building their outdoor skill sets. So while your seven year old may not be ready to head out for a week of camping quite yet, he may be prepared to camp with his pack after a few years of Cub Scout day camp.

Adult leadership is critical to having a great camp experience. The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for their Cub Scouts who attend Day Camp, plus provide 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. Just like all Scouting activities, two deep leadership must be followed and Youth Protection Training completed for all adults. Everyone must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.

 

Registration Coming Soon 

 



Who Can Attend?

What Time Do They Start?
