CUB SCOUT CAMPING.

Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You’ll learn to live with others in the out-of-doors. You’ll learn to be a good citizen of the outdoors.

Camping is fun, and it’s good for your mind, body, and spirit. It helps you learn to rely on yourself—on your own skills and knowledge. When you go camping as a Cub Scout, you get skills you will learn and use more, later, as a Boy Scout. There are lots of different opportunities for Cub Scouts to go camping including day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, family camps, and pack overnighters.

Cub Scout Winter Weekends

Get out of the house this winter at Heritage Reservation’s Cub Scout Winter Weekends! Cub Scouts and their families are invited to join us for a weekend of fun and friends.

Packs attending for the full weekend will stay in our Potomac Homes overlooking Lake Courage. Cafeteria style meals are provided in our dining area at Pathfinder Lodge. Come with your personal gear and enjoy winter with its exciting program features. Choose from several weekends – each of which is open to Scouts from any Pack. Winter Weekends at Heritage Reservation are a tremendous opportunity for Cub Scouts and their families to enjoy a fun-filled day in the great outdoors while experiencing the beauty of winter.

Day passes are available for those families that wish to come up for the day and enjoy the winter fun!

Overnight Camping

PACK OVERNIGHT CAMPOUTS

Packs can hold overnight campouts for the families in the pack. Cub Scouts’ brothers and sisters can go on these pack overnighters. In most cases, each Scout will camp with a parent or guardian. Every young camper must have a designated adult responsible for them. Pack overnights must be led by an adult who has completed Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) training. Find out when BALOO training will be offered in your area by checking out our council training calendar.

WEBELOS DEN OVERNIGHT CAMPOUTS

Webelos and Arrow of Light dens are the only dens within a Cub Scout pack that can go on their own overnight campouts. Each Webelos Scout camps with his parents or guardian. Campers learn the basics of Boy Scout camping, under the direction of the Webelos or Arrow of Light den leader. Sometimes, leaders and Scouts from a Boy Scout troop may join you. Webelos dens can also have joint overnight campouts with a Boy Scout troop. Each Webelos Scout has a parent or guardian with him on these joint campouts, too. Webelos den overnights must be led by an adult who has completed Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) training. Find out when BALOO training will be offered in your area by checking out our council training calendar.

COUNCIL AND DISTRICT ORGANIZED FAMILY CAMPS

Council and district organized family camps are overnight camps for more than one Cub Scout pack. You may hear these events called Parent-Pal Weekends, Winter Weekends, or Webelosrees which are just for Webelos and Arrow of Light dens. Each Cub Scout and Webelos Scout camps with a parent or guardian. These events offer fun competitions between dens and activities that Cub Scout packs are not allowed to do on their own such as BB gun shooting and archery.
