Here at Pack 962, we understand that summer camp is a yearly high point for our Cub Scouts, and we love to go! We also know that different children are ready for different experiences at different times, so we support a variety of camp experiences. Here are the places we often go, and our recommendations. Lions and Tigers require their adult partner at all activities, and we encourage parents to be involved in every activity with their child.
To keep costs down, YPT trained leaders and YPT trained parents from the Pack volunteer their time to help supervise the Scouts in camp. At day and twilight camp Parents or other adults take turns supervising the Pack's children each day.
Lions aren't members of the Pack in time to register for Summer Camp, they look forward to that experience the summer they are rising First Graders.
Here at Pack 962, we have guides for parents and Leaders to help with the summer camp process! Please find the PDF's below. They are formatted for printing as a booklet. These were written as part of Callie Fulmer's Wood Badge Ticket! If you are another Pack and would like to download the files, click here.
Day/Twilight Camp is the cornerstone of camp programs for the Pack. We recommend rising Tigers and rising Wolves go to Day or Twilight camp, and many older Scouts go to Day camp and an overnight program.
Day Camp is an all day program, while Twilight Camp is in the evening.
