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 50 Scouts have already registered for Day Camp! The time is now to lock in your spot!


Please visit to learn about the day camp opportunities nearest you. New this year, families can save and plan early for day camp. Starting at just $50 in the month of March you can lock in your Scouts place, and when paid in full by April 30th 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)


Cub Scout Day Camp is the highlight event of the summer for all Cub Scouts. Scouts who attend camp will get the opportunity to meet new friends, learn more about the Scouting program, 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 you 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.


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, 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.


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.


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. Visit for more information!
