Get there with Camp Cards: Community Day Camps


Through partnerships with local parks and recreation sites, Cradle of Liberty Council is able to offer 8 day camp opportunities this summer for all Cub Scouts.  


These volunteer run camps are held though these various sites, offer a local Cub Scout summer experience close to parents' home and/or work. These are a great experience for all Cubs, but particularly for Tigers, Wolves and Bears.  It's a great start to Cub Scout summer camping, which can be followed (this year or next) by an experience at Cub Adventures Resident Camp at Musser Scout Reservation.  


Community Day Camps typically run 9am - 4pm, Monday - Friday.  The fee includes the cost of all activities, a day camp tshirt and patch. Scouts should arrive each day with their lunch as it is not provided by the camp.  The Cub registration fee starts at $115

(only 46 Camp Cards) and additional registration options available including discount when a parent volunteers and non-Cub Scout sibling program.
