Resident camp is a three-night campout at Bovay Scout Ranch for Cub Scouts entering the first through fifth grade the following school year. From Cub Scout skills to rank advancements, these camps are full of fun and learning. Cub Scouts attending resident camp are also encouraged to register for day camp, as the advancements offered at resident camp add to those offered at day camp.
Resident camp includes activities such as riding BMX bikes, shooting archery and BB guns, playing sports, canoeing, fishing, making crafts, learning about STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), exploring nature, stargazing, branding, and splashing in the pool.
In addition, the resident camp program will focus on the new Cub Scout program electives:
- Tiger: Floats and Boats, Rolling Tigers
- Wolf: Paws of Skill
- Bear: Salmon Run, A Bear Goes Fishing
- Webelos: Aquanaut, Into the Woods, Into the Wild
Registration is a two-step process for adults
