Cub & Webelos Resident Camp

WHAT IS RESIDENT CAMP?

Cub Scout and Webelos Scout Resident Camps are a council-organized, theme oriented, overnight camping program. Cub Resident Camp is an exciting three days and two nights just for Cubs.  Webelos Summer Camp is a fun-filled four days and three nights that are just for our Webelos Scouts.

Cub Scout Resident Camp is designed to blend advancement and fun, packed into an adventure filled weekend.  Additionally, the Scouts will experience the outdoors and encounter life lessons including responsibility and cooperation.

New this year, siblings will be able to participate during our Family Resident Camp. Cub Scout-aged siblings may join the fun, and the program will consist of Tiger through Bear appropriate activities and advancements.

 

WHO CAN ATTEND RESIDENT CAMP?

Cub Scouts entering into 1-3 grades in fall of 2019 can attend Cub Resident Camp with their parent.

Cub Scouts entering the 1-3 grades and siblings (including Webelos-aged Scouts) K-5 grades can attend Family Resident Camp. (No Webelos programing will be offered.)

Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts who are going into 4th or 5th grade in fall of 2019 can attend Webelos Resident Camp as den or individual(s) with their parent(s).

Webelos Resident Camp

Webelos Resident Camp is a short-term camping experience designed to introduce Webelos, their leaders, and their parents to a theme-based, summertime camping experience that will help the Webelos be prepared for a smooth transition into Boy Scouting. It’s a memorable 4 days and 3 nights of thrilling and adventurous activities that keep campers excited for months after the closing campfire.

Webelos Resident Camp is held at the Tunnel Mill Reservation (TMR) in Charlestown, Indiana, and a combined WRC/CRC at Pfeffer Scout Reservation (RCM) in Benton, Kentucky. Packs must provide adequate leadership for their Scouts, but every Scout does not need a parent to attend. The ratio of youth to adults must be 4 to 1 or less with a minimum of 2 adults.

At Webelos Resident Camp, Scouts will participate in a variety of activities, including shooting sports, swimming, fishing, Scout skills, and much more. Many of these activities will help Scouts earn various Webelos activity badges and belt loops. Nights will be campfires, fun and games, and the tranquility of TMR. For leaders, it’s a great place to spend quality time with your Scouts without the distractions of everyday life and just get away for a couple of days. Resident Camp is pure fun from the time you get up in the morning until the time you crawl into your sleeping bag weary from the day’s exciting adventure.

If you have attended Webelos Resident Camp before, different programs are in place for 2nd year campers to complement traditional camp activities. If you have previously attended Cub Resident Camp, then Webelos Resident Camp will offer new and exciting programs as you continue on the Scouting trail. Each summer, camp has a new exciting theme.

Family/Cub Camp

Cub Camp is designed to be a smaller more intimate version of its Webelos Camp brother. While a day shorter, Cub Camp packs the same level of activity and energy into its program. The program is based on a free schedule of events on day two which provide your Scout with the opportunity to do many Scouting and outdoor activities. The popular programs of archery, BBs, aquatics, and fishing are scheduled to provide the best possible program for your Scout. A schedule of events will be provided by the staff on the first day you arrive.

The camp starts off with a bang for the opening campfire provided by the staff. Skits and songs along with staff antics are sure to get your Scouts laughing. Day Two evening sees the return of the traditional movie where we will watch a movie in our dining hall. Throughout the camp you will have the opportunity to bond with your Scout while learning new things and experiencing all that Scouting has to offer. This will be the highlight of your summer and will be cherished by you and your Scout for years to come.

Family camp is the same Cub program but allows for the whole family to join.  Siblings, Cub Scout age and above, will be able to participate in the program and experience camp together as a family.
