A Cub's World

From a Cub Scout’s point of view, the Cub World at Camp Tuckahoe offers a wide variety of outstanding programs and facilities designed just for him. During summer camp sessions for Cub Scouts ages 6-10 and their parents, the Cub World hosts most of the program areas campers will experience during their stay at Tuckahoe.

Cub World is a camp-within-a-camp, creating a special place just for Cub Scouts to enjoy. The Cub World was created as a separate and distinct area of Tuckahoe away from Boy Scout programs areas. While the Cub World is tucked away in its own corner of the camp, it is very convenient to the dining hall, pool and campfire circle.

The Cub World is also available year-round for packs to spend weekends at the Fort or Castle, or simply enjoying a day trip to the Cub World. Based on the best concepts developed nationally, the Cub World will provide our council with the tools needed to attract more Cub Scout campers to Tuckahoe and retain them longer as members.
