Camping is some of the essential Scouting experience. It trains young boys how to handle themselves and how to survive on their own. While Cub Scouts are too young for the experience of a week away from home at Scout Camp, there are still options available for them to experience some of the outdoors.
Cub Scout camping has day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, family camps, and pack overnighters.
Day camp lasts for one day to five days. It’s for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. Daycamps are held during the day or early evening. Campers do not stay overnight.
The Council offers day camps throughout the Council. Click here for all the info on Day Camp
Webelos dens go on overnight campouts. Each Webelos Scout camps with his parent or guardian. The campers learn the basics of Boy Scout camping, under the direction of the Webelos den leader. Sometimes, leaders from a Boy Scout troop may join you.
Webelos dens also have joint overnight campouts with a Boy Scout troop. Each Webelos Scout has a parent or guardian with him on these joint campouts, too.
Packs on their own can hold overnight campouts for the families in the pack. Cub Scouts’ brothers and sisters can go on these pack overnighters. In most cases, each Scout will camp with a parent or guardian. Every young camper is responsible to a specific adult.
