District Day Camp

What is Day Camp?
Often called “the camp that comes to the cub scout,” Cub Scout Day Camp is an organized five-day program for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts conducted by certified and trained leadership, at an approved site. What is offered is a high-quality program brought to you by many dedicated volunteers at a reasonable cost! Cub Scout Day Camps are conducted in accordance with established standards as given in the National Standards for Cub Scout Day Camps.
What is the Purpose of Day Camp?
We like to say that Day Camp is “an adventure with a purpose.” There are several purposes of the Day Camp program which include:
• Providing a continuation of the Cub Scout program through the summer
• Helping the scouts maintain their interest and needs
• Giving the pack an opportunity to meet a requirement of the Summertime Pack Award
• Aiding in the progress of transition from Cub Scouts to Scouts
• Having fun!
Who Attends Cub Scout Day Camp?
Cub Scout Day Camp is a unique program; it is usually the first major activity for scouts after graduation from their previous rank. At Day Camp, scouts begin to work toward their next rank in the Cub Scout program and we use the same ranks to identify age groups as your pack:
• Tiger is for scouts who have completed kindergarten (Each Scout requires a chaperone)
• Wolf is for scouts who have completed first grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Bear is for scouts who have completed second grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Webelos is for scouts who have completed third or fourth grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
