Cub Scout Day Camp and Twilight Camps 2021

Welcome to the Laboratory!

Greetings! It’s time to get ready for another exciting summer at our Day & Twilight Camps for your Cub Scouts!  We can’t wait to have you join us for our adventures in “Weird Science”!  This year’s Day and Twilight Camps will be memorable experiences for all Cub Scouting families and we hope you will join us at the camp nearest you.

You may have noticed that many of our camps have made the switch to a Twilight Camp this year. Twilight Camps are designed to offer the same program as Day Camps, but at a time that not only makes it easier for parents to get their Cub Scouts to the camp, but even making it easier for them to attend WITH their Cub Scout!

Cub Scouting is about getting the whole family involved, and we hope to give the whole family an electrifying time by hosting more family friendly camps!

Registration for our camps will open on January 7, 2021 on Tentaroo. Simply click on the name of the camp below and register either your family or Pack for a week of Cub Scout fun this summer! Registration before June 15 is only $95/scout or sibling for Day Camp, or $80/scout or sibling for Twilight Camp. Camperships are available if necessary, please read below for more information.

See you there, fellow scientist!

What is Day Camp and Twilight Camp and Who Can Attend?

Day Camp is a day-only program and Twilight Camp is an evening-only program offered to Cub Scouts during the month of July and early August. All Tigers, Wolves, and Bears are eligible to attend. The purpose of Day Camp and Twilight Camp is to provide a fun and educational program for the Scout and his or her entire family. Cub Scouts can attend any session based on the convenience of the family’s schedule and location. Each session is 5 days long. The theme for the 2021 Day Camp and Twilight season is “Weird Science.”

What is a Den Walker and Who can be one?

Den Walker is a staff volunteer that spends the day with the Scouts. They provide support and supervision of the Scouts, making sure everybody moves to the next station with the group, and assisting program staff when necessary. We ask that each pack provide two Den Walkers for the week. It can be the same volunteers all week or different volunteers each day. Please let us know in advance who will be attending as Den Walkers. All adults must complete PA Act 15 Background Check and Youth Protection Training. Den Walkers who are in camp all five days will be allowed to send their child to camp for free that week. All Den Walkers who volunteer for at least 3 days, will receive a staff T-shirt to wear for the time they are volunteering. Den Walkers who volunteer less than 3 days will be identifiable to participants. Additional T-shirts are available for purchase.

Regarding Webelos and Lions at Adventure Camp

Webelos can attend Adventure Camp, however, the program is designed for Tigers, Wolves, and Bears. According to the Age-Appropriate Guidelines for Camping that are published by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Lions are not permitted to attend Summer Adventure Camp.  Youth recruited into the Lion program are to start officially in the Pack in the fall and should not be recruited during the spring.  Lions are permitted to attend day camps and family camping after they have joined in the fall.

Regarding Five Year Old’s and BB Guns

According to Age-Appropriate Guidelines established by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America, participants 5 years or younger are unable to fire a BB Gun. The purpose of nerf guns at the Cub Scout Adventure Camps for the participants who are 5 years old is to promote the proper and safety use of a firearm on our designated ranges. The nerf guns are also to be used to help prepare these participants for when they can safely use a BB gun on our ranges. While using the nerf guns the Scouts must follow the directions of the staff overseeing the range and must only shoot at the designated targets on the range.
