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.
Virtual Cub Scout Day Camp in September/October
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, many of the locations we had reserved for the Day Camps have notified us that they are not allowing groups to use their facilities.
There are four locations that are still allowing us to conduct camp (see below). For the rest of the Scouts, we are planning a council-wide Virtual Day Camp for Saturday, September 26 or October 3 (tbd).
Cub Scouts that participate in the Virtual Day Camp will need to register online to receive a craft project, t-shirt and patch with information on how to log in online to do the other activities.
Registration for the new Virtual Day Camp will be open as soon as the September 26 or October 3 date is confirmed.
