Cub Scout Camping

Cub Scout Camping is a great way to introduce boys who are in the first through fifth grades to the fun and excitement that Scouting can give them. Camping is the highlight of the year for most Cub Scouts, and the Baden Powell Council offers three types of camping adventures for the boys in the Cub Scout program. Each of the programs listed below will ensure that your Cub Scout enjoys and remembers the fun times and adventures at Camp.
