Summer Cub Scout Resident Camp - Pack registration begins today

Summer camp is the highlight of every Cub Scout's year. Cubs get to go boating, swimming, and climbing; along with shooting at the ranges, making crafts, and learning about nature. The schedule is packed with fun and excitement from sunup to sundown. Year after year, this is the program the boys really look forward to.

As a Pack, we have designated the following location and dates for those most interested in attending with other Pack families:

Cub Scout Resident Camp
Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4 (Webelos Outpost ends August 5)

Kiwanis Scout Camp
15987 St. Croix Trail North
Marine on the St. Croix, MN 55047 (driving directions)

Program Activities

Camp activities are age appropriate based on rank. A boy can come back to Cub Scout Resident Camp each year, and get a different experience.

Swimming, hiking, bb-gun shooting, archery, crafts, nature adventures and games are waiting for you at Camp Kiwanis!  A two-night/three-day program, Cub Scout Resident Camp offers an opportunity for Scouts and their accompanying adult to spend quality time together working on advancement, enjoying recreational activities, and learning about camping.

You can choose to spend the night in a dormitory-style building or a tent. Camp provides canvas wall tents with beds and mattresses. You could also potentially bring your own tents; but please inform Outings Chair if you do.  We must formally request this since space is limited at Kiwanis and we couldn’t fit personal tents for everyone.

About Kiwanis Scout Camp

This conveniently located camp consists of 110 acres nestled along the banks of the St. Croix. Kiwanis is a unique property offering a great variety of summer activities, a dining hall for 200 people, a 36-person dormatory, six sleeping cabins, kitchen, yurts, cabinets, tent camping, and a large two-room Conference Center.

Fees

  • $102/person
  • $35/person - for optional Webelos Outpost

Payment options:

  • Cash
  • Checks written to "Pack 151".
  • Scout Accounts, if you sign up with the Pack by our deadline.
  • Camperships are available (see section below).

What's expected of parents while at camp?

The Northern Star Council does all the planning for you. Parents who come to camp with their Cub Scout are expected to have as much fun as the Scouts! Almost all activities at Cub Scout Resident Camp are designed for the adults to help, or do alongside the Scouts in their group.

Optional Webelos Outpost

Here's an special opportunity for current Bears and Webelos I. The Webelos Outpost is an extra, optional opportunity for Webelos attending Cub Scout Resident Camp. It's a chance for these Scouts to travel to a more remote part of camp, set up tents and cook their own food while learning some more advanced skills. This opportunity is definitely worth the extra time and cost! Webelos will enjoy the extra challenge, and younger Scouts will look forward to the outpost in future years.  Weblos Outpost fee is $35/person and ends on August 5.

Deadline Thursday, April 4

This camp is already filling up fast.  In order to have the best chance of Pack families going together, we must set an early deadline.  Your payments, Cub Scout Resident Camp Registration Form and other required forms must be received by the Outings Chair no later than Thursday, April 4.

Pack registrations received after the April 4 Pack Deadline will be wait-listed with no guarantee of enrollment.

Read Pack 151's Outings Policy for more info.

Alternate dates or missing the Pack's Deadline

If you miss the Pack's deadline or if the Pack's chosen dates don't work for your schedule, you also have the option of signing up with the Northern Star Council directly.  A variety of camp locations and dates are avaialbe.  Be aware of their different deadline and payment policies though. Check availability or sign yourself up at www.goscouting.org/signup/  Anyone can visit this site and see up-to-the minute availability. Anyone can sign up for camp, there’s no login needed! Make sure you bring your required documents along with you to camp.

Registration Requirements

For each person in your family wishing to attend with the Pack, each of the following forms must be turned in. Use the links below to download and print the necessary forms.

For your family group, please complete and turn in the 

If You Registered for Fall Festival, Polar Cubs, or Family Camp:

We have some Annual BSA Health & Medical Records,  health insurance ID photocopies, and Camping Participant Waivers on file for some adults and scouts who registered for other camps this year. Please ask the Outings Chair if any of your already completed forms are still on file.

Camperships Available

Pack 151 believes every boy should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of camping, and wants to provide the opportunity for registered boys to go to camp. These experiences help boys learn new skills and advance through the ranks of Scouting. The intent of "Camperships" is to ensure that any boy with financial difficulties is not denied the opportunity to attend camping programs. Contact Pack Committee Chair Mike Bailey or Cubmaster Charlie Niven for more info. 

A note about your Cub's rank

By the time your son attends Cub Scout Resident Camp in August, he'll be considered a rank higher than he is now.

Cub Scouts begin working on their next ranks starting in June.  For example, current Lions will become Tigers in June.  Current Tigers will move on to Wolf, current Wolves will move on to Bear, and current Bears will start their first year as Webelos.

This weekend program is for Tigers, Wolfs, Bears and 1st year Webelos (as of June).

Withdrawals and Refunds

Submitting your Registration

Please turn in an envelope containing all your Registration Requirements at an upcoming Pack Meeting or a Tiger Den Meeting.  You can also drop it off anytime in a small plastic "Cub Scouts Drop Box" on my front porch.  Just make sure I receive it by April 4.

Please email me if you have any Cub Scout Resident Camp questions.
