Dear Campers,

Please note our NEW location at Powhatan Middle School, conveniently located on Old Buckingham Road in Powhatan County, just west of the Powhatan Court House area.  As we have in years past, all campers must bring their own lunch and snacks, there will not be refrigeration available for food at this time.

What is Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is an organized five-day program for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts conducted by certified and trained leadership, at an approved site. What is offered is a high-quality program brought to you by many dedicated volunteers at a reasonable cost! Cub Scout Day Camps are conducted in accordance with the established standards as stated in the National Camp Accreditation Program.

What is the Purpose of Day Camp?

We like to say that Day Camp is “an adventure with a purpose.” There are several purposes of the Day Camp program which include:

• Providing a continuation of the Cub Scout program through the summer
• Helping the youth maintain their interest and needs
• Giving the Pack an opportunity to meet a requirement of the Summertime Pack Award
• Assisting in the recruiting and training of present and future Cub Scout leadership
• Aiding in the progress of transition from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA
• Strengthening den and pack organizations for a better year-round program
• Having fun!


Who Attends Cub Scout Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is a unique program; it is usually the first major activity for scouts after graduation from their previous rank. At Day Camp, boys and girls begin to work toward their next rank in the Cub Scout program and we use the same ranks to identify age groups as your pack:

• Tiger is for boys and girls who have completed kindergarten (Each Scout requires a chaperone)
• Wolf is for boys and girls who have completed first grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Bear is for boys and girls who have completed second grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)
• Webelos is for boys and girls who have completed third or fourth grade (Every 5 Scouts require a chaperone)

What Activities Will Be Available?

Advancement has always been an important part of our Day Camps, however it is not the singular focus.  The Day Camp programs contains a well-balanced variety of Core adventures, adventure electives. Typical stations include Archery, BBs, Sports, Crafts, Cooking, Nature, and others. More information will be emailed to your Pack's leadership.

How Much Does Day Camp Cost?

The Day Camp fee is $85 per scout five days of attendance. $20 for a single day of attendance if registered and paid by 5:00pm June 1st.   The Day Camp fee includes a camp t-shirt and patch as well as covering all insurance costs and program materials.  Be sure to register soon!  Registration ends June 1st.

REGISTRATION NOTE:  ALL Day Camp registrations are required to go through the unit's Pack Coordinator.  NO INDIVIDUAL SCOUT/PARENT/CHAPERONE registrations are able to be accepted.   Registration ends June 1st.
