Cub Camp Presenter Resources

We believe the biggest hurdle to getting our Cub Scouts to Cub Camp is a lack of knowledge about our programs. Everyone involved with a Cub Scout Pack has the ability to positively influence participation in SVMBC’s outdoor programs for Cub Scouts.

To help with this endeavor, we created a self-directed slide presentation. The presentation takes about 10 minutes or so to go through and it includes a 4 minute video of one of our cub scout day camps. It may be downloaded and shown at a pack meeting or the link to the presentation may be shared with cub scout families and leaders. Questions about our programs may be directed to CubCamp@SVMBC.org or 408-638-8300. Thank you for helping our Cub Scout Packs learn more about our fabulous outdoor programs.
