Cub Scout Camping
Young boys of today need creative ways to learn kindness, giving, and responsibility, especially when choosing right and wrong. Cub Scout Camp provides a unique outdoor experience and curriculum to best teach these skills through fun & adventure in a safe environment.
Fulfilling the promise. We have some very unique opportunities in our council for our Cub Scouts to experience multiple camps and their camp programs during the summer and throughout the school year. Our camps are planned to serve specific ages so that boys progress from camp to camp as they grow and their interests change. This progression also gives them a variety of camp experiences from summer to summer. Each camp is designed to best suit the recommended age groups and their abilities. This list is just a recommendation, but we encourage each family to figure out what fits best with their family circumstances. For some families, our new "All-Pack Camping" might just be the best solution for you!
Day Camp: Recommended for incoming Tigers (just graduated Kindergarten). Themes rotate every five years, so the boys will have a new experience every time! The camps run 5 days a week during the daylight hours. Mid-Columbia Day Camp runs "twilight" hours from approximately 5:00-9:00pm. Click Here to sign up and for more info.
Butte Creek: Recommended for Wolves and Bears (just finishing 1st and 2nd Grade). This western-themed overnight camp will intrigue the imaginations of our younger Cub Scouts. The camp is 3 days, 2 nights. Click Here to sign up and for more info.
Camp Clark: Recommended for Webelos (just finishing 3rd and 4th Grade). Camp Clark gives your Scout a full week (five night) camping experience which helps get them ready to join Boy Scouts, and the program is designed to help Webelos start learning basic Scouting skills in preparation for the Boy Scout program.
All Pack Sessions: Recommended for Smaller Packs. Both Butte Creek and Camp Clark offer sessions for entire packs in order to accommodate smaller units with fewer adult leaders. Programs will be altered slightly to accommodate the larger age range. Details for the All Pack sessions at each camp can be found on their respective webpages
Program highlights have included B.B. gun and archery ranges, field sports, nature study, ocean study, science, showmanship, campfires, crafts, woodworking and basic skill development. Webelos also hike to Meriwether, a Boy Scout camp, to see what it has to offer them for future camping experiences. In addition to the regular program areas the Webelos are able to choose and sign up for 5 of 10 elective stations to customize their experience (these are a Webelos version of Boy Scout merit badges) and that will help Webelos make a positive transition into Boy Scouting. Part of the mission for Adventure Cove is that each Webelos den attending leaves a stronger, better team; one step closer to the Arrow of Light and excited about their future as Boy Scouts.
