Cub Scout Camping-
Adventure and Advancement for Cub Scouts and their Families!
Your Cub Scout has many options for Camping this year, so be sure to get out and enjoy them!
Family Camping- Gold Rush and SpookOree
These are one-night camping and full day events run by District volunteers- Cub parents just like you! You and your Cub Scout will arrive Friday night- if you wish- for a night of camping with other families. Saturday is an exciting day of activities that are around a theme that is currently popular among the Cub Scouts. Families are welcome to attend, and Scouts can attend just for the day if they choose. Gold Rush
and SpookoRees usually end after a Saturday night cookout and campfire.
Cub Scout Day Camps are conducted for one week during the summer, usually at a park or field somewhere central within the District. Trained volunteers and Cub parents like you offer their time to create a theme-driven set of activities that usually include crafts, athletic and cooperative contests and most times the chance to experience archery or other shooting skills. Each day you will drop your Cub Scout off for a day of adventure, fun and learning, and perhaps even spend a day to help with the excitement! Siblings are welcome if you volunteer your time.
Cub Scout Adventure Camp
4 days, three nights in the woods of the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation, transported into a world of exploring, adventure, fun and advancement. All your Pack needs is two adults per five Scouts, and you start down the path of Scouting on the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation!
Each August, Hundreds of Cub Scouts and parents descend on either Camp Powhatan or Camp Ottari in Pulaski County for four days and three nights of camping and activities in a theme-based adventure. Wild West world, Safari Explorers, Space Exploration and Cubs of the Round Table are recurring themes. For example, in 2015 'Cub Craft' based on the popular online game 'Minecraft' was built by participants at Cub Adventure Camp. All meals and tents are provided- just bring yourselves, a change of clothing and be ready for FUN!
Webelos Resident Camp
Webelos Scouts need to prepare for becoming Boy Scouts, and a great place is on the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation.In August Webelos Scouts and adults are invited to Camp to experience a scaled down version of a week at Boy Scout camp. Many of the activities are similar to the activities that the older Scouts experience; Webelos Scouts who go to Webelos Resident Camp are ready for a fulll week with the Troop because they are more familiar with the surroundings and activities the older Scouts experience. Come, grow and have FUN!
Webelos to Woods
Webelos to Woods is a weekend experience specificallyfor Webelos II Scouts conducted by some of Boy Scouts' best Scouts- members of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting's National Honor Society. Webelos Scouts are paired up with Boy Scout Troops for camping, meals and activities to help them understand Boy Scout Troops differ from Cub Scout Dens, and to help them interact with Troops they may be joining when they Crossover in the spring.
