Cub Scout Day Camp
Cub Scout day camps are organized by the Northern Lights Council and conducted by volunteers from the local area. Day camps are for registered Cub Scouts entering grades 1-5 the following school year. Those entering the 1st grade must be accompanied by an ‘adult partner’ during their participation.
Day camps are conducted by adult volunteer leadership who were trained and certified. Day camps are also supported by a number of adult and youth staff members. Boy Scout Den Chiefs may also support the day camp program by assisting the Cub Scouts throughout the camp.
A variety of different activities are offered to allow participants to experience outdoor programs for Cub Scouts; many of which are designed to implement the 2020 Cub Scout program theme, “Down on the Farm”.
Most camps include activities based on STEM, nature, shooting sports, games, and basic outdoor skills. Adult volunteers make up the nucleus of the day camp staff by volunteering in positions to lead specific programs, support the general operation, or by managing a den of Cub Scouts throughout their time at camp.
Does your pack have a Day Camp Coordinator?
To help communicate camp information and coordinate the registration of youth, we ask for each pack to have a Pack Day Camp Coordinator. The coordinators will be invited to participate in a webinar prior to the date of the Day Camp.
Please let us know who your pack coordinator is by completing the Pack Day Camp Coordinator Form.
