New Members' Guide to Cub Scout Camping

The Cascade Pacific Council provides Cub Scouts & their families with outstanding outdoor program opportunities. Day Camps, Resident Camps, Family Camps, Pack Camps, and more!

Cub Scout Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You'll learn to live with others in the out-of-doors. You'll learn to be a good citizen of the outdoors.

Camping is fun, and it's good for your mind, body, and spirit. It helps you learn to rely on yourself—on your own skills and knowledge. When you go camping as a Cub Scout, you get skills you will learn and use more, later, as a Boy Scout.

Day Camps

Day camp lasts for four to five days. It's for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. Day camps are held during the day or early evening. Campers do not stay overnight. Discover more...

Resident Camps

Cascade Pacific Council offers three outstanding overnight (resident) summer camps for Cub Scouts and Webelos:

  • Cub World, near Clackamas Town Center, offers three-day, two-night experiences for Cub Scouts. We recommend Cub World as the first overnight summer camp for Cub Scouts.
  • Butte Creek, near Molalla, Oregon, offers three-day, two-night experiences for first-year Webelos Scouts.
  • Camp Clark, near Tillamook, Oregon, offers six-day, five-night experiences for second-year Webelos. We recommend Camp Clark for second-year Webelos due to it's strong emphasis on preparation for that age group to join the older boy Boy Scouting program in the following few months.

Council-Organized Family Camps

Family camps are overnight camps for more than one Cub Scout pack. You may hear these events called "parent-pal weekends" or "adventure weekends." Each Cub Scout and Webelos Scout camps with a parent or guardian. Discover more...
