Camp is open to all Boys and Girls (Cub Scouts) entering the 1st – 5th Grade in Fall 2023. If your child is not currently a Cub Scout, he or she can still attend!
Please note: The Council places the safety and well-being of our Scouts, parents, campers and volunteers at the forefront. Day Camp will only go forward if it is safe and in compliance with local, state and Boy Scouts of America directives. The ability to proceed with camp depends on having a sufficient number of volunteers to ensure the proper supervision of campers as well as a sufficient minimum number of participants.
Note: Camp activities are subject to change based on current local COVID-19 and BSA requirements.
