Cub Adventure Weekend
Camp Rockefeller is the perfect place for Cub Scouts and their families to “get away” and get outdoors for a full day of Cub Scout programs and an optional night of tent camping.
Cub Adventure Weekends are a great opportunity for Cub Scouts and their families to camp in a safe location, make friends with hundreds of other Scouting families, earn achievements, learn new skills, and have fun. The Quapaw Area Council Camping Committee puts an incredible amount of time into providing high-quality camping opportunities. Cub Weekend Campers will have many items and resources provided for them. Resources provided include tents, cots, meals, water, all program materials, and patches. Cub Camping Weekends are a great opportunity for you and your family to spend quality time with one another and create lifelong memories.
These weekends are great for ALL Cub Scouts and their families, especially brand new Cub Scouts. Camp Rockefeller provides canvas wall tents with concrete flooring in all its campsites so there is no reason to bring your own unless you would prefer to use it. All meals are provided starting with an evening snack (Cracker-barrel) on Friday and ending with a hot breakfast on Sunday morning. Most special needs diets can be accommodated. Simply let us know well in advance.
Cub Adventure Weekends are a great way to go camping with your entire family.
Join us at Camp Rockefeller for this great event!!!

What is our Campsite Like?
You will have a fire ring and a picnic table. There are canvas wall tents with two cots per tent available for you and your family to use. If you choose to bring your own tent, you can set up your tents anywhere in your assigned campsite. There are shower houses that have hot water and flush toilets close to the campsite for your use. You will find kindling and firewood in the surrounding area to keep a campfire going (DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD TO CAMP).
The dining hall and program areas are within easy walking distance from each campsite. There is plenty of space for you to run around with existing friends and to make new ones.
There are cell phone chargers around the dining hall for your convenience.
