FirstCamp is a sampling of outdoor program that youth will get to know through their experiences in Cub Scouting.  FirstCamp will be held at Little Sioux Scout Ranch, which is a 1,700-acre Scouting paradise in the Loess Hills and about an hour from Omaha and Sioux City on I-29.

The activities at FirstCamp will be open-program, so Scouts can spend as much or little time at each activity as they would like.  All activities, supplies, and lunch are provided.  The BSA's Scout Shop will be setup on-site, so you can purchase any uniform parts and handbooks needed.

Family Weekend welcomes current Scouts, siblings, and their families to camp to experience a fun weekend in the outdoors!

NEW and current families are welcome to camp Friday night at camp. Bring your tent, sleeping bag, toiletries, and comfortable clothes for program Saturday.

PACKS ... bring your families out as a unit campout! We'll take care of the program and you get to know your new families.

Saturday lunch will be provided for those registered by Wednesday, September 22. Please plan accordingly and bring all other meals.
