Cub Scout Day Camp

What is Cub Scout Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is an outdoor experience in scouting, friendship, and fun! Cub Scout Day Camp is a chance to experience the activities that all cub scouts look forward to when they sign up, including BBs, archery, nature, crafts, games, songs, and more!

Cub Scout Day Camps typically operate during the day, e.g. open around 8 am and close each day at around 4 pm (actual times do vary by camp, so please check!), but some Cub Scout Day Camps operate in the evening (and are called Twilight Camps), and some involve overnight camping. For exact details about your camp please see the list below.

Cub Scout Day Camps are open to any registered cub scout who has attended at least one day of elementary school (or an equivalent). Tigers (i.e. Cub Scouts entering the 1st grade in the Fall) must always have a parent or guardian with them at camp and, in general, parents and leaders are highly encouraged to participate!

Our Cub Scout Day Camps are held in locations all throughout our council. For a complete list with dates, times, and locations (and other camp-specific information), please see below.

How Much Does Cub Scout Day Camp Cost?

Cub Scout Day Camp is $120 for a weeklong session.  The weekend and twilight session fee is $85.   This fee includes a t-shirt, cup, patch, snacks, crafts, and all the fun possible!

Thanks to Friends of Scouting and our council, there are a limited number of camperships available. Camperships are awarded based on need and the Cub Scout’s parents are asked to submit their application for a campership by April 29.  Please visit our Forms Page for the campership form or contact the Scout office at (502) 361-2624 for more information.

What Should I Bring?

Check your specific camp’s leaders guide but, typically, Cub Scouts should plan to bring a sack lunch each day (non-perishable foods & drinks only), rain gear (camp will operate rain or shine unless weather is severe), sunscreen* and bug repellent*. If your camp has swimming and/or water activities, a towel and change of clothes is also required.

Adults should also bring a lunch (non-perishable) and are encouraged to bring a chair (that you can easily carry around).

Each pack should also plan to provide a pop-up canopy and/or a small tarp to create a gathering spot for lunch. It’s also helpful if each pack can provide a cooler (with ice).

Open-toed shoes and sandals are NOT allowed at camp (for safety reasons) and all clothing (both scouts and adults) must be scout appropriate.

*Please note that sunscreen and bug repellent must be applied before the scout arrives at camp (Camp staff are not allowed to apply sunscreen or bug spray).

What About Leadership?

Pack leadership & parents are strongly encouraged to participate.  Each pack should plan to have at least one registered leader at camp (if this is not possible, there are exceptions to this rule, please talk to the camp director).

Please note that all Tigers (scouts entering the 1st Grade in the Fall) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while at camp. This is a BSA requirement.

There are numerous opportunities for adults who would like to attend camp with their scout!

  • At camp, scouts are grouped into dens, and each den requires at least one den walker. A den walker’s sole responsibility is making sure that the den is in the right place at the right time.
  • Each day camp is 100% volunteer-run and there are many opportunities to help with your camp! If you are registered with the BSA and you would like to help at camp, please contact your camp director (see the list below). Volunteer roles include assisting with camp promotion, leading activity areas, providing support to activity areas, providing general support to camp, and more!

Adults who attend camp are FREE! Also, adults who plan to spend the entire session and whose application is received two weeks before camp starts will receive a free camp t-shirt.

How do I register?

All day camp registration takes place through Tentaroo. Scouts can either register individually or with their pack. If you’re unsure of which option is best, please contact your pack’s day camp coordinator, Cubmaster, or other unit leader.

Also, when registering, please register your Cub Scout according to the rank they will be working towards next, i.e. the rank they will be working towards starting in the Fall. If you’re unsure, please ask your scout’s den leader, Cubmaster, other unit leader, or your day camp’s director.

What About Younger Children?

Any child whose parent is assisting at camp (either as a den walker or camp staff) and is potty-trained can participate in our Lil’ Buddy program. Parents must have a responsibility at Camp and must be on site for their child to enroll in the Lil Buddy program.  A nominal fee of $25 covers the entire session (either full or partial). Snacks, T-Shirt, and activities will be provided.  Children must be potty-trained.  These children should also bring a sack lunch. You are required to pre-register your Lil’ Buddy.
