Cub Scout Day Camp

Cub Scout Day Camp is a multi-day outdoor experience under the supervision of specially trained volunteers. The program is thoughtfully designed to teach Cub Scouts basic life skills through fun activities ranging from Shooting Sports to nature to STEM projects. We create opportunities for your child to think things through, challenge them mentally and physically, persevere, and to achieve. Scouts earn requirements for rank advancement, earn special awards and gain a lot of self-confidence in a short amount of time. 

Who can attend
