What makes Cub Scout Adventure Camp different from any other Cub Scout camp around? Our campers are immersed in a themed experience during their stay. You’ll live in a tent, participate in age-appropriate programs, earn your whittling chip (Bears) and many other activities in the camp and interact with the costumed staff.
While at Cub Adventure Camp, you can work on all kinds of Adventure loops and Webelos pins, as well as Cub awards like the Shootong Sports Awards, the World Conservation Award, Nova Awards and parts of the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. The only limit is what you choose NOT to do! Our staff will work with your Pack to provide advancement opportunities that meet your needs. Check out our Program Guide for more information on advancment opportunities.
Den Chiefs at Cub Scout Resident Camp
Den Chiefs are encouraged to come to camp to assist the Pack leadership in ensuring a positive experience
throughout the week. Den Chiefs are Scouts BSA Scouts who stay with a Den, but are there to provide support to the Cub Scouts. While Den Chief's are welcome to participate in activiteis with their Den, priority is given to the Cub Scouts if space is limited. The fee for a Den Chief is $145.00.
Den Chiefs are to stay in their own tent or share a tent with another Den Chief. They are able to participate in
all activities in camp throughout their stay. Den Chiefs are not adult leadership and cannot be counted on as an adult leader at any time. We ask they go through Den Chief Training before attending camp with their Cub Pack.

Provisional Reservations – Scouts Not attending camp with Unit
Scouts who wish to attend camp without their unit are usually paired with another Pack in camp. Scouts who attend camp provisionally should pay their camp fees individually online or through the Service Center using the Provisional Scout Camp Registration Form. Provisional campers pay the same fees under the same timeline as those attending with their Pack. While this is an option, it is discouraged unless a parent is attending as well.
Camperships can be applied for during the registration process. It is strongly recommended that Unit Leaders enable parent portal. When this is done you will have log-in cards to print and give to your parents. They can then log in and access their Scouts registration, fill out forms and make payments.
Required Unit Leadership
Units must maintain the minimum two-deep leadership at all times. Each unit must have a minimum number
of adults in camp at all times, two of whom must be over 21 (others must be 18 years of age or older). If a Cub Pack has female Scouts camping, one of the adults must be female leader camping. All adults must be registered in the Boy Scouts of America and have successfully completed Youth Protection Training for adults before attending summer camp. If there are Scouts in the campsite, there needs to be an adult present in the site as well! Anyone staying overnight in camp must provide a medical form to the Camp Medical Officer.
