Cub 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 2019 Cub Scout program theme, “Passport to Adventure”.
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.
Calling all Scouts BSA, Venturers, Webelos & Arrow of Light Scouts! Join us for our Fall Camporee on September 6th-8th at the Triangle Y Camp. All Scouts and Scouters will enjoy a relaxing weekend in sunny Garrison ,ND on Lake Sakakawea. Enjoy everything the Y camp has to offer from a fully staffed campground, to horseback riding, ropes course, climbing tower, and a full assortment of waterfront activities.
