Cub and Webelos Summer Camp

Into the Wild Wild West


Just imagine … the year is 1849, and America is wild with Gold Rush Fever! The discovery of a few gold flakes at Sutter’s Mill has sent thousands of adventurers streaming westward, hoping to find their fortune. Now you can join the excitement by rushing to Camp Tuckahoe this summer!

You’ll be greeted upon your arrival and quickly incorporated into the life of our frontier boomtown. Scouts will meet the many characters; cowboys, blacksmiths, miners, and more who will work with them throughout the week.

But … you’ll soon discover that all’s not well in our little town, for a gang of outlaws has been threatening to take charge! Perhaps the arrival of a new sheriff – and the help of his many Scout deputies – will bring peace and prosperity back to Tuckahoe!

The skills your Scouts will learn along the way, and the memories they’ll make, will guarantee this to be one summer camp you’d rather not miss! So join in the fun! We encourage you to work with your Scouts to prepare theme-related costumes to wear throughout the week.

Summer Camp Reservations Guidelines

  • Non-Refundable Site Deposit: When making a summer camp reservation, the pack will make a $100 site deposit. If the pack attends camp, the site deposit fee will be credited toward the balance of the summer camp fees.
  • For Cub Scout Resident Camp: A $50 Non-refundable per scout or adult deposit is due on or before February 1st.
  • For Webelos Scout Resident Camp: A $60 Non-refundable per scout or adult deposit is due on or before February 1st.
    •  Units exceeding the maximum campsite capacity may be moved to a different campsite. Once the weekly maximum capacity of the camp is reached that session of camp will be closed and a wait list will be developed.  Deposits cannot be refunded or applied to any other types of fees like camp T-shirt and BBQ tickets. 
    • This deposit is intended to make unit attendance projections as accurate as possible by February 1.  This will help us make sure your campsite and camping experience is not overly crowed. Units will be permitted to change the name of the scouts or the adults that have made a deposit payment.
  • Full Payment: Full payment for all campers is due May 1st. All fees increase by $25 if paid after May 1st.
  • Reservation of Sites: The number of per Scout and adult leader payments made by February 1st will be used in allocating campsite space. If a unit wishes to have exclusive use of any campsite at camp, $60 per person payments must be made for 95% of the campsite capacity. The camp reserves the right to move units to different campsites if the unit does not make per person payments for 95% of the site’s capacity.
  • Application of Deposits; Refunds: All $100 deposits are applied to camp fees but are non-refundable. All Scout and adult leader deposits are non-refundable but are transferable as deposits to new Scouts or adult leaders who are not registered for summer camp. Unit refunds will be issued after the close of each session of camp.


In Council families requesting financial assistance must submit a Campership Application by Monday, April 1, 2019.

  • Cub World Overnight Excursion
    While your campsite will serve as “home base” during your stay at Tuckahoe, every pack can schedule an overnight excursion to sleep in one of our Cub World theme areas.  Reservations will be honored in the order they are received until all spaces are full, so don’t wait until the last minute to stake your claim!  Please indicate your preference when you register for camp, and expect to be informed of your assignment on the evening of your arrival.The Fort and Castle, perennial favorites, each accommodate 40 campers.  The Teepee Village has space for 36 campers, while the Pirate Ship can accommodate 20.  Please note that, while not quite as weatherproof as our other options, in fair weather the teepees and ship can provide overnight experiences that are impossible to beat!Participants in this program will transport their own gear from the campsite, so we suggest limiting your overnight gear to what you can comfortably carry (a sleeping bag and pillow would suit most campers).  You should also plan to awaken early enough to return to your campsite, clean up, and still make it to our morning flag raising ceremony on time.
  • Family Night Barbecue
    What better way to conclude your stay at Tuckahoe than to host your family and friends for a little taste of the camping experience? Guests may arrive between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm on the final day of each session and, for a small charge, join us for dinner. Guests may even plan to stay for the closing campfire show! (Please purchase your BBQ Tickets at the Trading Post. BBQ Ticket Prices are: $5 for Youth, $7 for Adult, and youth under 5 eat for free!)

Who Can Go?

Tuckahoe welcomes all Cub Scouts, Webelos, and their Adult Partners!
Tiger Cub Camp is for those youth and parents that participated in the Lion Program during the previous school year and will be entering first grade as Tiger Cubs this fall. Click here for more information.
Cub Scout Camp is for boys who will be entering first through third Grades in the fall.
Webelos Camp is for those entering fourth or fifth Grade.

Separate sessions for Cubs and Webelos allow us to offer programs designed specifically for them! We encourage all Scouts to register for camp with their Pack or Den.  Children not registered in the BSA cannot attend camp.

Adult Leaders

The Boy Scouts of America require at least two adult leaders to be in camp with each unit at all times. We encourage one adult for every four Scouts but require a minimum of one adult for every eight Scouts and one additional adult for each four boys (or part thereof). Many units bring one adult for every Scout.

All adults and parents planning to attend New Birth of Freedom Council summer camp programs need to obtain those background clearances now mandated by state law. Click here for more information.

Free Leaders

If a pack brings eight Scouts to camp, TWO Adults camp for FREE!  For every additional eight Scouts that attend, one additional adult camps for free!

How To Sign Up For Camp

All registrations for summer camp are handled through our online system called Tentaroo. If your unit does not have an account, please first create an account, then you’ll be able to reserve your space at summer camp.
