Cub Resident Camps
Cub Scout Resident Camping is a multi-day and overnight experience that is held at one of our two council Camps – Barton and Tuscarora. These programs allow your Cub Scout to get a taste of what our Camps have to offer and to start developing the skills to become a Boy Scout. From Hiking in the Woods, to Swimming in the Lakes, to Shooting a Bow and Arrow, our Cub Scout Resident Camps provide your Scout with the thrill of a life-time!!
Cub Scouts are organized into Dens with other Boys of their age and then spend their time visiting the Program Areas throughout the Camps. Activities include: Archery, BB Gun Shooting, Swimming, Boating, Handicrafts, Scout Craft Skills and Sports. Camp Staff deliver the exciting and fast-paced program with a Theme unique to the Camp and the year (past themes have included Pirates, Knights in Armor, the Gold Rush, Mysteries, and Space Exploration).
