Cub Scouts -- Plan Now for 2013 Summer Camps!

 

summer camp logo.gifThe highlight of a Cub Scout's year in Scouting is camp! Statistics show that boys who attend summer camp are FAR more likely to stay in Scouting longer and studies show many benefits of attending camp like trying new things and making new friends.  As you know, Scouting is built around age-specific programs.  As such, we have very different camp experiences planned this summer for each age group of Cub Scouting, from Tiger Cubs through Webelos Scouts.  Here's the breakdown so you have from plenty of time to get ready!

What's available:  Dad & LadMom & MeWebelos Mini-Camp, Webelos (weeklong) Camp,Grizzly Adventure Camp, and Cub Scout Day Camp

*Dad & Lad and Mom & Me are open to new Tiger Cubs (graduated kindergarteners) and new Webelos Scouts (graduated third and fourth graders) after Feb. 1.  New Wolves and Bears (graduated first and second graders) are given priority.

​What Are The Differences?

  1. Dad & Lad -- An overnight campout for fathers (only) and sons.  Two days, one night, two meals, $35, held at most of our council camps.  Click HERE for more info and registration forms.
  2. Mom & Me - An overnight campout for mothers (only) and sons.  Two days, one night, two meals, $35, held at most of our council camps.  Click HERE for more info and registration forms.
  3. Webelos Mini-Camp -- Webelos live in tents with their dens, hike trails, swim twice daily, have fun at campfires, work on activity badges, learn outdoor skills, and much more.  Three days, two nights, six meals, held at most of our council camps, $130 ($120 if paid by May 1).  Click HERE for more info and registration forms.
  4. Webelos (weeklong) Camp -- A very similar program to the mini-camp above, this camp is simply extended to give older boys an enhanced experience.  Six days, five nights, fifteen meals, held at most of our council camps, $240 ($230 if paid by May 1).  Click HERE for more info and registration forms.
  5. Grizzly Adventure Camp -- A daily activity for Cub Scouts with no overnight camping, similar to our district's Cub Scout Day Camp, but at Camp Grizzly Cub World (part of Beaumont Scout Reservation in St. Louis).  There are two sessions:  July 8-12 or July 15-19.  This council activity is a great addition or alternative to our district's Cub Scout Day Camp (see below).   Cost is $90 ($80 if paid by May 1).  Click HERE for more info and registration forms.

Where are the forms and what are the costs?

Re: Cub Scouts -- Plan Now for 2013 Summer Camps!

Dates have been corrected on all sites.

Registration forms will be available late this month and distributed at March Roundtable.  They will be posted on that website and linked from here as well when available.

The cost of each four-day Day Camp in North Star District is $65.  Scouts can save $10 by paying before May 1.  Camperships are available.  Other district's Day Camps are different fees.
