Cub Scout Day Camp

The Cub Scout Day Camp program is both a fun and educational event offered each summer to potential Cub Scouts, Cub Scouts and Webelos who want an exciting 3-4 day event. Some of the activities that are held at camp will give the Scouts an opportunity to earn some achievements towards their rank advancement; other activities will be for the fun and enjoyment of the outdoors. A team of volunteers in your district is busily planning a fantastic camp for 2018. The theme this year is PASSPORT TO ADVENTURE!

Cub Scout Day Camps in the Great Rivers Council are conducted by trained and certified directors who use the standards as set by the Boy Scouts of America to ensure a quality program is being offered. Cub Scouts attend camp with their own pack leadership or parents. The program is staffed by volunteer leadership who are trained in the area in which they are assisting. Boy Scouts are also encouraged to help at camp as Den Chiefs (they must be 14 years old and be a First Class Scout to assist. Each day camp is different in location and program but follows the same theme as the rest of the camps in the Council. 

Scouts will have all sorts of amazing adventures at Day Camp, some of which may include shooting bb guns and archery, play games, building a treasure chest, learning about other parts of the world, singing songs, doing skits, and most of all HAVING FUN!

Each of our seven geographical districts will be offering a camp, and Scouts can attend any camp (or camps) they choose. Cub Scouts and potential Cub Scouts that want to attend day camp in another area are not only allowed but encouraged. Boys and Girls that are not already in Cub Scouts should contact David Harris at David.Harris@Scouting.org or 573-449-2561 Ext. 203 to get signed up for Cub Scouts before trying to register for Day Camp.  The cost of camp this year is $50 ($15 for Mark Twain & LaPlata Camps).  Check the chart below for registration and late fee deadlines.
