New & Improved Outdoor Skills Areas and Program Style
We have added a second outdoor skills area next to the fort to add to the fun and learning. Cubs will have the opportunity to visit both areas to learn basics of knots, fire lays and outdoor cooking. Webelos and Arrow of lights will learn more advanced knots, lashing, pioneering skills, outdoor cooking, and first aid. Arrow of lights will have the opportunity to spend a night away from their pack as part of their growth towards independence and in preparation for Boy Scouting.
Our new and improved nature program will help all scouts learn about our environment and its living creatures. All scouts will have have the option to participate in leave no trace workshop, hikes exploring poisonous plants and night hikes exploring the night sky.
Take your best shot at the Archery and BB ranges while you are in Cub World! All Cub scouts are given in-depth instruction and tips to ensure a safe day on the range. At the BB range, campers can also practice their aim using slingshots. Determination is always painted on the campers’ faces as they try to get the ever-elusive BULL’S-EYE! So, READY. AIM. FIRE!
In this area, campers are sure to improve on their teamwork. Field sports include basketball, soccer, hockey, and softball; Cub World provides all of the equipment needed. Scouts are taught the basic rules of the sports and are then allowed to play out a game. During the Fitness program, Cub Scouts are challenged to perform their fastest, while trying to race through the obstacle course.
Our Theater Staff will teach your scouts throughout the course of their stay several songs, skits and runons. On wednesday we will have a campers camp fire where all the campers will participate and show off the cool things they learned with our theater staff.
This program is comprised of a Creative staff that utilizes several areas in camp to bring out every Cub Scouts creativity and imagination. Campers will be engaged in art projects centered around the theme at our arts center. Campers will also be engaged in team building games and activities at the Fort and the Ship. Last but certainly not least every scout will have the opportunity to visit the mine and explore searching for treasures while playing teambuilding games.The fort and Ship are also available for free play during downtime/ Siesta.
