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.
Things to Know
- Family: All Pack campouts are family oriented. Moms, Dads, brothers and sisters are all welcome! In most cases, each Scout will camp with a parent or guardian. Every young camper is responsible to a specific adult.
- Food: The Pack provides all meals for our campouts. When there are exceptions, this will be communicated. Personal snacks are all families usually have to bring. Please be sure to communicate any special dietary needs.
- Facilities: We do our best to choose campgrounds with adequate bathroom facilities for family use.
- Fun: Our camping activities are a lot of fun! Come ready for a great time with some great families.
Webelos dens go on several overnight campouts. Each Webelos Scout camps with his parent or guardian. The campers learn the basics of Boy Scout camping, under the direction of the Webelos den leader. Sometimes, leaders from a Boy Scout troop may join you.
Webelos dens also have joint overnight campouts with a Boy Scout troop. Each Webelos Scout has a parent or guardian with him on these joint campouts as well.
