| Home > 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.

- Frontier Fort – This facility is a program area where Cub Scouts can imagine themselves back in the old days of America’s Western frontier. Cub Scouts can stand guard in the fort’s towers and survey the view from the fort’s elevated walkways. The fort also is a year-round sleeping facility for up to 40 Scouts and leaders. The Frontier Fort has bunk beds with mattresses, full kitchen with appliances, wood stove, indoor rest rooms and showers to make your stay at camp more comfortable and enjoyable.
- Medieval Castle – Also created to help Cub Scouts imagine themselves back in a time they have only seen on television or in movies, the castle takes today’s Cub Scouts back to the days of the King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable. Colorful shields, wall hangings and a knight’s armor help create the mood. The interior of the castle is identical to these facilities and equipment available in the Frontier Fort.
- Pirate Ship – Cub Scouts can take a turn at the ship’s wheel, take up positions on the ship’s three decks and gangway, or sleep in the ship’s cargo hold during fair weather. Bunk beds with mattress pads can accommodate up to 20 shipmates.
- Native American Village – includes four large tepees that can each sleep 9 Scouts and leaders.
- Cub Scout Shooting Sports Center – the BB gun and target archery areas are very popular and busy program areas during summer camp sessions. Action Archery is also available during summer camp sessions to give Cub Scouts a different type of archery challenge.
- Nature Tree House – Don’t put your camera away just yet. This “Swiss Family Robinson” style multi-deck nature observatory is just what Scouts need to get a bird’s eye view of the forest.
- Underground Mine – Feel your way through this dark facility. Give your Cub Scouts a taste of what it was like to be in a mine. The program will provide lots of opportunities for fun and program.
- Physical Fitness Trail – A Cub Scout-sized course that will challenge younger boys with opportunities to test their strength, balance and agility.
- Cub Pavilion – The large Cub Pavilion is a great multiple-use facility for an unlimited number of Cub activities. The pavilion has lighting with lots of seating and storage.
- Cub Activity Field – A level grassy activity area has been created at Cub World for Cub Scouts to get involved in group and camp-wide games.
- Huck Finn Raft at Memory Lake – While not located within the Cub World borders, this program feature was developed to provide additional fun for Cub Scout campers. Cub Scouts can imagine rafting down the mighty Mississippi River with their best friend Tom Sawyer.
