Mr. Skip's Night Hike October 24th 2015

Mr. Skip's Night Hike October 24th 2015


40 Pictures from the 2015 Event 

We would like to thank all those who came out to make this event a memorable experience.  It was a great event that could have been shared with so many more.  After gathering at the dining hall, the groups walked over to the far side of camp on the other side of the Unami creek by natural light.  There they met Miller Mullen who explained how water power from the nearby streams was harnessed to grind grain into flour by putting it between two rotating grinding stones with just enough space between them to make flour or meal without touching.

Program Changes Coming for Cub Scouts

As a result of a concerted effort by volunteers and professionals, significant changes are coming in the Cub Scout advancement program.  The primary objective of these changes is to match the program to the wants and needs of today's youth. The changes were also done to provide more FUN in the program. These changes will become dffective June 2015 (or the beginning of the program year in September 2015).

First, what is NOT changing:

  • Family Focus – Scouting has and will always be a family program
  • Maintaining the concept of “Akela” as the Leader.
  • Cub Scout sign (Wolf Ears), salute, handshake, and motto (“Do your Best” – how we judge accomplishments)
  • Rank system (Bobcat, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, WEBELOS, and Arrow Of Light).
  • Outdoor program
  • Delivery Model – Most of the advancement will be done at den mtgs.
  • Other recognition
    • Cub Outdoor Program award
    • Summertime Pack award
    • STEM & STEM Nova award

What is Changing?

  • ONE Oath and Law – Retiring the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack and use the Boy Scout Oath and Law
  • Pack and Den activities will align more with the Aims and the Mission of the BSA
  • Tiger Cubs will officially be known as Tigers and they will have a new image
  • Adventures will replace Achievements: it will take 2 to 3 meetings to complete one Adventure, for which Belt Loops will be awarded.
  • Current “Immediate Recognition” items (Tiger Beads & Tracks, Wolf & Bear Progress beads, WEBELOS Compass Point pins) will be discontinued
  • Arrow Points will be discontinued; boys will continue working on Adventures Belt Loops
  • Sports and Academic Program will be retired; the best of the program will be incorporated into several of the Adventures
  • For WEBELOS, Adventure Pins will replace Activity Pins
  • WEBELOS prerequisite for Arrow of Light have been removed
  • An Adventure was created to give a better understanding of the WEBELOS to Scout transition plan for boys, leaders, and parents

Additional information is available on the national website.

STEM Volunteers Needed

STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can't help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.

Check out National's NOVA website

Cub Scout Day Camp FAQs

What is Cub Scout Day Camp?

Cub Scout Day Camp is a five day, fun-filled experience that offers opportunities for all levels of Cub Scouting to participate in activities that are designed to build mental fitness, physical skills, and character. And it is A LOT OF FUN!

Where are the Camps?

Day Camps are located in or near each District in the Cradle of Liberty Council. Click here to find the camp closest to you. All cubs and their families are welcome to attend any camp in the Council.  Each camp is unique enough that your Scout will enjoy multiple weeks of Day Camp at various locations.

What will my Cub Scout do at Camp?

Each camp has a variety of age-appropriate games and sports, crafts, and other activities that will help your Cub have a Scouting Adventure! Belt loops, activity pins, and other advancement are earned at each camp.

How much does camp cost?

Early Bird Fee

(before 5/1) 

Regular Fee

(after 5/1)

Scout with

Adult Vol. Fee ** 



$115.00 $140.00  $25.00 $25.00
** For a Scout to qualify for this rate, an adult must volunteer on the day camp staff for the entire week    


Camperships are available to Cub Scouts in need on a first come first serve basis. Click here for more information and a Campership Application.

Can I bring my Cub's siblings?

Most camps have a Kids Korner program available for the children of camp volunteers. Check with your Day Camp Director for age minimums and any other requirements. All sibling campers must be potty trained. Camps also offer a sibling program for their volunteer's Cub Scout-age children (7-10), in which siblings will participate in the same activities as Cub Scouts. Kids Corner is only available for the children of our volunteers. Parents with children in the Sibling program and/or Kids Korner MUST volunteer for the full week.

Do I have to volunteer?

Cub Scout Day Camp would be lost without its youth and adult volunteers. Adults learn a lot and will be inspired and engaged in the idea of Scouting and camping. Adults can volunteer from one to five days and serve in a variety of staff roles. Adults who volunteer for a full week can bring their Cub Scout to camp FOR ONLY $25! Youth volunteers are also needed to serve as Den Chiefs and assist in program areas.

Does an adult have to attend camp with a Tiger Scout?

Yes.  Tiger Scouts (those going into 1st grade) must have an adult with them at all times including at Day Camp.  Tiger Scouts and their adult partner do everything together in Scouting.  This is per the BSA and applies to Day Camp the same as it does to den and Pack meetings or any other Scouting activity. The "Tiger Partner" does not have to be Mom or Dad. A Guardian, Grandparent, Aunt/Uncle, Older sibling (over 18), etc (with parental consent) is welcome to volunteer as the Tiger Partner.

Do I have to pre-register?

All camp attendees (both adults and youth) must be pre registered for camp by two weeks before camp starts.  Walk-ins on the first day of camp will not be accepted.  All registration forms must come through council, not sent directly to camp directors.  Adult and Youth Volunteers need to apply early so camp directors can place them in their positions/dens for camp. Registration will be available online soon.

Click here for registration information.


Adult volunteers must be Youth Protection trained before applying to camp.  Den Chief applicants must be Den Chief trained and present a letter of reccomendation from their Scoutmaster (or equivalent for female applicants).  Those without training or letters of reccomendation will not be considered.

Youth Protection training:

Den Chief Training: online or check the council calendar for in person classroom style training

What is the refund policy?

Since the camps have incurred expenses related to the reservation such as program materials, $25 of the camp fee is non-refundable under any circumstances. The refund of the balance of any fees paid will be based upon the proximity to your arrival date in camp and if it meets the criteria outlined below. Within 30 days of your arrival date at camp, refunds will only be considered for the following reasons:

- Scout's illness -- written statement required from physician

- Extreme family emergency -- written statement required from parent

- Summer School -- written statement required from school principal or guidance counselor

In all cases, requests for refunds must be in writing and submitted to the Cradle of Liberty Council Camping Office on or before your arrival date in camp.

Contact the COL Day Camp Staff Advisor (John Bickle) at (484)654-9235 or your Day Camp Director if you have other questions.
