Cub Scout Day Camp
Having an outdoor experience is a key component for every Scout. Cub Scout Day Camp is truly the best week of a Cub Scout’s summer! Day Camp is a week long day-time camp adventure where Cub Scouts and parents experience a bigger part of Scouting. Each camp offers a variety of activities, often including arts & crafts, games, archery, bb guns, sports and Scout skills.

Tiger Cub Notes
- When Cub camp literature refers to Tiger Cubs, it means Scouts who will be a Tiger Cub in the fall (incoming 1st graders). Current Tiger Cubs will be considered Wolf Scouts as of June 1st.
- Incoming Tiger Cubs require their adult partner to attend camp with them for all scheduled days. As it states on the BSA Youth Application, a Tiger Cub adult partner will participate in all meetings and activities.
Provisional Camper Notes
Provisional camping is an opportunity for families to send their Cub Scout to a Cub Camp Day Camp and pay an additional $100 in lieu of the two-day volunteer requirement. The additional fee will provide the camp with funds to hire an adult(s) to help the camp meet the Cub Scout to Adult 1:4 ratio and two-deep leadership requirements for NCS accreditation. Provisional camping is not available at resident camps. Families may continue to volunteer two or more days at camp. Packs may continue to provide the 1:4 volunteer ratio as a group. If you are working with your pack to provide adult coverage, you do NOT need to select the provisional option.
If opting for Provisional Camping, families should indicate “Provisional” on the line asking for the name of the adult attendee and include the $100 additional fee when calculating payment cost.
