Camp Tuckahoe has been carefully developed to provide outstanding facilities tailored to meet the needs of both Cub Scout and Boy Scout campers. Tuckahoe is used for Cub Scout camping programs for half of the summer camping season, and used for Boy Scout camping programs the other half of the summer.
Summer camp is the culmination of an exciting year in Scouting. It’s a time to delight in the outdoors, to learn news skills, to forge new alliances and to have fun with friends. From the youngest Cub Scout to the most experienced Boy Scout, summer camp is the adventure that puts the “outing” in Scouting.
For Cub Scouts
Summer camp experiences will provide boys with memories that will last a lifetime. Most boys join Cub Scouting because of outdoor activities. When a boy and his family join Cub Scouting, they are joining an organization that values the fun and excitement of experiencing the outdoors.
Each Cub Scout pack is encouraged to provide its youth members with enriching, positive outdoor experiences. Providing youth members with access to high-quality summer camp programs should be a top priority for pack leaders.
In planning its programs for Cub Scouts, the camp seeks to provide age-appropriate camping experiences that are carefully tailored to the maturity and ability levels of Cub Scouts. As boys progress in Cub Scouting, summer camp programs should change to provide the experiences and challenges that boys want as they grow older and ultimately prepare to cross-over into Boy Scouting.
Programs offered for younger Cub Scouts are shorter in duration than those offered for Webelos Scouts, for example. Advancement opportunities at camp also vary by the ages of the Cub Scouts in camp at that time.
All Cub Scout summer camp programs include opportunities in shooting sports (BB gun and archery shooting), swimming, boating, fishing, nature, camping skills, handicrafts, games and much more. Tuckahoe is home to a state-of-the-art Cub World, where many of the Cub and Webelos camp program areas are located. With a medieval castle, frontier fort, Pirate ship and many other cool program features, Camp Tuckahoe is uniquely equipped to bring the annual camp theme to life for its Cub Scout campers. In addition, many camp staff member can be found in costume throughout the camp.
In reviewing Cub Scout summer camp programs, please keep in mind that Cub Scouts are considered to have advanced to the next rank at the end of the school year (today’s Tiger Cubs are next summer’s Wolf Cub Scouts, etc.)
