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.

Parents will also have the opportunity to speak to experienced adult Scouters about Cub Scouting and what you can look forward to during your time in Scouting.

Activities may include:

  • Bouldering
  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • STEM Activities
  • Scouting 101
  • Shooting Sports
    • Lions will not be participating in BB guns and archery, but will participate in slingshots
  • and more!

Each participant(including siblings and adults) must bring a copy of BSA Medical form with Parts A & B completed. This does not require a physical at a physicians office, it simply should be completed by a parent or guardian. The form can be found HERE
