As you're scrolling through, please reach out to your den leaders or Cub Master if you have any questions. We're always here for you.
Here at Pack 962, we understand children are ready for different experiences at different times, so we support a variety of summer camp experiences. On this page, you'll find links to various camps, a breakdown of what each camping experience entails, and some additional guides and information at the bottom of the page. As always, if you have any questions talk with your den leader or our Cub Master.
It's important to note that as of June your scout has moved up in rank; thus, a current Lion would be attending camp as a Tiger in the summer. So in essence when signing up for summer camps, you'll be signing your scout up based on their next rank not their current rank.
A TIGER PARENT IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND ALL EVENTS WITH HIS/HER/THEIR SCOUT.
Scouts should always bring a daypack, a foldable chair they can carry, and a water bottle no matter what camp they're attending.
All adults attending camps MUST BE YPT Trained. Training is online and can be found here.
Camps for cub scouts are broken up into 3 categories.
Day/Twilight Camp is hosted by our district, Goose Creek, every year at the Loudoun County Fair Grounds and all scouts and adults need to have filed a medical AB form with the pack prior to attending. This camp is run by YPT-trained leaders and adults from our district. Camp usually runs from about 8:30am until 5:30pm for 5 days at the Loudoun County Fair Grounds. Parents are encouraged to attend with their scouts, and if possible to help with the planning and running of the camp.
The following two camps require a Medical ABC form that must be filled out and signed by a doctor. Click here to download the form.
Weekend-Camp allows scouts to get a taste of what actual summer camp is like without being gone for 7 days. Typically camp check-in begins Thursday night and camp ends on Sunday morning. This is a great opportunity for Wolfs and Bears to get some summer camp experience before attending the longer camps as Weblos and AOLs.
Finally, there is week-long overnight camp. These types of camps are indicative of what Boy Scout summer camp will be like. These camps are only open to Weblos and AOL's.
It is also possible for scouts and families to camp at various BSA locations that we don't take the Pack to. Places like Philmont and Goshen offer options that allow scouts to attend without pack involvement. Scroll down for more information on these opportunities.
