Twilight Camp @ Crow Island Woods

Twilight Camp is our featured "twilight time" program for Cubs.  A great introduction to the camp experience, this program rotates through stations meant to challenge and inspire while keeping Scouts active and engaged. Our volunteers have designed a tried and true program that leaves lasting memories.  This event fills up quickly, so register soon!

TWILIGHT CAMP SCOUT/ADULT RATIO REQUIREMENTS:  At least 1 adult is required for every 5 Cub Scouts from a Pack. ALL Tiger Cubs require a parent/approved adult partner with them throughout the program. A Tiger Cub chaperone from a Pack counts as 1 adult to the 1-to-5 ratio.

New In 2018:  To better serve our scouting families, we have changed from a 3-day program on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (3:30 pm-7:00 pm each day), to a 2-day program on Friday and Saturday (see times above).  With the new program on Saturday, your Cub Scouts will get the full experience of Twilight Camp in fewer days!
