Cub Scout Day Camp
More information coming soon!
Cub Scout day camp organized by the Mountaineer Area Council, Boy Scouts of America are conducted by volunteers from the local area. Day camp is for registered Cub Scouts entering the 1st-5th grades the following school year. Scouts entering the 1st grade must be accompanied by an ‘adult partner’ during their participation. Although individual Cub Scouts are able to participate at day camp, it is strongly encouraged for Cub Scouts to attend with their friends and adults from the same den or pack; and for the pack’s camping coordinator to submit a single registration for all those attending.
Day camp is conducted by adult volunteer leadership who were trained and certified at one of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Camping Schools; by a number of adult and youth staff members; and by Boy Scout Den Chiefs assisting the Cub Scouts throughout the camp.
A variety of different activities are offered to allow participants to experience outdoor programs for Cub Scouts; many of which are designed to implement the Cub Scout program theme. Most camps include activities based on STEM, nature, shooting sports, games, and possibly aquatics. Adult volunteers make up the nucleus of the day camp staff by volunteering in positions to lead specific programs, support the general operation, or by managing a den of Cub Scouts throughout their time at camp.
