What Do Boys Want from Scouting? When a boy becomes a member of the Boy Scouts of America, one of his first questions is, “When do we go camping?” The Cub Scout program offers a variety of opportunities that include day camps, pack campouts, family camping, and Webelos overnighters. Each of these experiences have a different dynamic that gives the boy and his friends and family an appreciation for the outdoors. Camping and outdoor activities fulfill a boy’s dreams of fun, excitement, and adventure. Camps provide a natural setting for quality time with family and friends. Scout council camps with trained staffers provide an ideal setting for a wide variety of activities.
Who Can Attend? The whole family is invited to attend Cub Scout Adventure Weekend. Anyone in the family (immediate or extended) may attend any of the Cub Scout Family Camps hosted at Camp Rockefeller on Gus Blass Scout Reservation, if there is one registered Cub Scout in the family.
What to expect upon arrival at camp You and your family can arrive at camp on Friday any time between 5:00PM and 9:00PM or Saturday from 7:00AM to 9:00AM. Upon arrival, you will check in with the Camp Director and turn in all medical forms. You will be assigned a campsite. Once you are checked in with the Camp Director, a camp trailer will take your gear to your campsite while you walk to the site. No vehicles will be allowed in camp.
Program at Camp The camp offers many activity areas: crafts, first aid, Scout skills—which includes knife safety, proper uniform, and how to handle an American flag properly. We also offer BB gun and archery ranges. Camp check in is Friday night between 5:00PM and 9:00PM or Saturday from 7:00AM to 9:00AM. While no program or meals are provided that night, there will be snacks available in the dining hall. Saturday kicks off with a flag ceremony at 7:45AM and breakfast at 8:00AM. Program starts at 9:00AM on Saturday and ends after chapel on Sunday.
Advancements at Camp All program areas and activities are developed from the Cub Scout and Webelos advancement handbooks. Although there are no formal sign offs on various requirements, parents should review their sons’ handbooks to see what requirements they can sign. Projects, games, nature hikes may fall under Achievements, Electives, or activity pin Requirements. Parents should also check to see items that can be completed in the Cub Scout Sports and Academics program.
What is our Campsite Like? You will have a fire ring and a picnic table. There are canvas wall tents will two cots per tent available for you and your family to use. If you choose to bring your own tent, you can set up your tents anywhere in your assigned campsite. There are shower houses that have hot water and flush toilets close to the campsite for your use. You will find kindling and firewood in the surrounding area to keep a campfire going (PLEASE DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD TO CAMP). The dining hall and program areas are within easy walking distance from each campsite. There is plenty of space for you to run around with existing friends and to make new ones.
