The program includes both fun projects and activities as well as opportunities to work on Cub Scout Adventures.

Shooting sports is a staple of all good summer camps. Have mountains of fun shooting at the BB gun range while learning proper range etiquette and gun safety.

The Pool

Summer days are long and hot! It is great to cool down at the Pool, play on the waterslides, and hang out with each other during water sports.

Boating

Explore our amazing lake. Its surface and shoreline are filled with lily pads and other wildlife. We have canoes and paddle boats for your sunny day boating adventures.

The Big Dig

Digging for treasure is something we rarely, if ever, get to do. At the Big Dig you get to do just that! What will you find?

Field Games

Obstacle courses, Soccer, tag, Gaga Ball, and so much more happen in our field games area. Your imagination is the only limiting thing when you visit Field games.
