CAMPS & CAMPING
Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You'll learn to live with others in the out-of-doors and be a good outdoor citizen. 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 gain skills you will learn and use more, later, as a Boy Scout.

We offer many types of camp experiences:

Day Camps
Cub Scout day camps last for just one day. They're for Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos Scouts. Day campers do not stay overnight.
Examples: Fall Day Camp, Polar Cubs, Tiger Day Camp, Base Camp Day Camp, etc.

Summer Camps
At a Cub Scouts Summer Samp, Scouts and their adult partners stay overnight. Every year, these have a different theme and different age-appropriate adventures. Summer camps are an excellent way for Scouts to strengthen friendships and progress quickly in their rank advancement. You and your son will learn many new skills and you'll have a great time while doing it. Scouts and their adult partners may choose to sleep overnight in tents or in buildings. Example: Cub Scouts Summer Camp

Webelos Campouts
These older boys are offered adventures not yet available to younger Scouts.  Webelos Scouts go on overnight campouts. They can attend these with his parent/guardian (or choose not to). He'll learn the basics of Boy Scout camping, under the direction of a trained Webelos den leader. Sometimes, older boys and leaders from a Boy Scout troop may join you too. Example: Webelos Outpost at a Cub Scout Summer Camp, Webelos Adventure Days, Webelos Arrow of Light Camp, Fall Camporee, Spring Webelos Woods, Webelos Outdoor Weekend at Okpik, Northern Tier (a BSA high-adventure camp), etc.

Pack Overnighters / Family Camp
As a pack, we host overnight campouts for all families in our pack. Cub Scouts' brothers and sisters can go on these pack overnighters. In most cases, each Scout will camp with a parent or guardian. Example: Pack 151 Family Camp at Fred C. Andersen Scout Camp.

OPTIONAL PACK ACTIVITIES
In addition to twice-monthy den meetings, monthly pack meetings, and bimonthly optional pack outings, we offer a few very special optional events.  One of the favorites is our pack's Pinewood Derby. We're in the fortunate position to have a few experienced pack, district and council Pinewood Derby champs in our pack. Each winter they host free workshops, sharing their secrets, tools and techniques.  Don't miss this opportunity!  We also annually celebrate the Boy Scouts of America's founding birthday with an Annual Blue & Gold Banquet.  We hope you'll join us for these very special events!



FUN DAYS / FUN NIGHTS

These are optional activities for our pack's families to have fun together as a group. Sometimes these outings are very affordable and sometimes they're free.  Many offer advancement opportunities.  Examples: Swimming at a water park, Monster Jam (monster truck rally), Wheels & Wings air & auto show, Base Camp, museum visits, MN State Park hikes, National Winter Trails Day (free snowshoeing & cross country events), family snow tubing days at Trollhaugen, St. Paul Saints baseball games, World's Toughest Rodeo, etc.
