Cub Summer Camp is coming up fast. And I Can’t Wait!
It’s hard to remember when I sent my first Cub Scout off to Summer Camp so many years ago. I was a nervous wreck coming from a structured public school setting to a Cub Scout Camp with adult leaders who I had just met. So let me pause for a moment answer some of those “first time” questions.
Yes! We are trained. We are highly trained. The adult Scouters have done the required training and above and beyond. They are CPR and First Aid trained. Our camps have met and exceeded national BSA Camping Standards. Your Scouts safety (and fun) is our number one priority. If you have any specific health or special needs questions please contact one of our Camp Directors. We all have classroom experience as teachers and are highly trained in our non-Scouting lives as well.
Yes! We will have fun. LOTS of it. We will sing camp songs, perform skits, play games, and learn. Scouts will do activities based on the adventures in their handbook. Its outdoor learning at its best. Scouts will learn about physics by building robots, they will learn about teamwork by running obstacle courses, they will learn about nature when they care for plants. At Resident Camp they will swim and participate in shooting sports. At Day Camp we will have special guests to introduce them to engineering, recycling, and service to the community.
We apologize in advance for the camp songs they will sing incessantly. The Scouts will also be filthy and exhausted. We take pride in giving them a full camp experience. Many families plan their vacations around Summer Cub Camps. As Scouts grow out of the cub program they work hard to interview and train and serve as Youth Staff, passing on their knowledge and fun to the younger Cub Scouts. Cub Camp is family. You will see the same faces year-after-year. You will hold these memories in your heart.
