Cub Camp

Let us offer some peace of mind.
Given the Covid-19 crisis, many families are unsure about committing to events. We get it, so we are offering the option of a fully refundable deposit to hold your spot and make a decision later. Make a refundable deposit now for 10% to let us know you would like to come and secure your place at the lower rate. Can’t make it? Let us know 2 weeks before day camp and we will refund your deposit 100%. Select this option when you select your day camp.

Parent Responsibilities and Volunteering

We subsidize camp fees through the efforts of parent volunteers. Like all Cub Scout activities, Cub Camp is a family program. For each participating Cub Scout at camp, our camps require an adult to volunteer at camp for 1 day during the week of camp or as required by your camp director. The adult volunteer may be a grandparent or other family member, a paid childcare provider, or a family friend. For those families experiencing a hardship committing to one day at camp, alternate volunteer arrangements may be available by communicating directly with the camp’s director. Contact information for each camp is available on our web site. Alternate arrangements may include paying a provisional camping fee, volunteering outside of camp operation hours or by providing other needed services.

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. Current Lions will be considered Tigers 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.
