What is Cub Scout Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is a 5 day, adventure filled program that is held at several locations throughout the Five Rivers Council. Day Camps are designed to meet the needs and interest of Cub Scouts by providing fun and exciting, age appropriate activities on a daily basis. Any currently registered Cub Scout and who graduates into grades 1-5 in June of 2019 can attend the Day Camp of their choice.

Typical activities included at most camps are:

  • BB & Archery Shooting
  • Swimming
  • Fishing
  • Crafts
  • Games & Sports
  • Nature and ecology.

What is the Day Camp Program?

The Day Camp program includes various activities such as crafts, archery, BB gun shooting, sports, nature, outdoor skills, ceremonies, games and other special presentations. A few camps are able to offer swimming and fishing. The letter you receive from the Day Camp Director will explain the camp program, rules and expectations prior to your arrival at the camp.


Day camp should be an adventure for the whole Pack. It is recommended that Packs send groups together to camp. Individuals are welcome but will have more fun with their friends.

What Do We Eat?

Lunch is bring your own. Please be sure to clearly label the container/bag that your Scout brings.

Do I Wear My Cub Scout Uniform?

No, the Day Camp Uniform is the T-Shirt provided by the camp on the first day. Sneakers, shorts and a poncho may be appropriate depending on weather conditions. It is highly recommended that you also bring a canteen or water bottle. Each Camp Director will mail you additional information before your first day of camp.
