Cub Scout Day Camp 2018

Planning for our 2018 Day Camps are underway by our volunteer committee, and we are excited that you are considering sending your Scout to a week of camp with us this year! If you didn’t know this year Camp is open to all boys and girls entering the 1st -5th grade in August of 2018. Our Webelos Day Camps specifically cater to 4th and 5th graders and begin to prepare Scouts for Scouting programs after Cub Scouts. Many of our camps even offer a lunch option for your Scout for the entire week, which is at no additional charge from the basic camp price (participating camps only). Over 100+ Scouts have already registered for Day Camp! The time is now to lock in your spot, and begin planning your own “Passport to Adventure”!

Cub Scout Day Camp is the highlight event of the summer for all Cub Scouts and this year’s theme is “Passport to Adventure”. Scouts who attend camp will get the opportunity to meet new friends, learn more about the Scouting program, and participate in a multitude of activities. These activities will include: games, sports, crafts, and most of all learn how to safely shoot a bow and arrow and BB gun (each day while at camp). Camps this year are also booking special guest speakers to come and do demonstrations for your Scouts. Each camp will have their own flavor of special guests, but all will offer something unique and enjoyable for the Scouts to keep them excited about the great outdoors and the local community. With this year’s theme “Passport to Adventure” our Directors are hard at work theming all aspects of camp to keep Scouts entertained each and every day, and make them eager to come back for more. Scouts will explore new cultures, new activities, and places around the world.

The Central Florida Council offers thirteen Day Camps, and two Webelos Day Camps throughout all seven counties beginning in early June and ending in late July. These camps are run by volunteers and parents, just like you, who serve as our Camp Directors, Program Directors, medics, shooting sports instructors and program area leaders. All key adult leaders attend training for their positions so they can offer the best possible experience for your Scouts. Our volunteer teams are already planning training days, in order to provide the best possible camp for your Scout to enjoy. If you are interested in helping please contact your Director. We are excited that this coming summer over 1,500 Cub Scouts and more than 500 leaders will come to camp and stamp their Passport to Adventure. Scouts who participate in Day Camp are more likely to remain in Cub Scouts, bridge to Boy Scouts, and make the fundamental ideals of Scouting a part of their lives into adulthood.

Please visit daycamp.cflscouting.org to learn about the day camp opportunities nearest you. New this year, families can save and plan early for day camp. Pay incrementally between now and April 30th, by being prepared you will receive $5 off of the standard registration fee (day camp registration includes an event patch, event t-shirt and all materials for the entire week of camp, some camps even include a hot lunch)

P.S. All day camps are currently looking for adult and Junior Staff (11-17-year-old) volunteers. Those 5 day adult volunteers who have a Cub Scout attending camp, also will receive an added $25 rebate at camps conclusion.
