Cub Scout Day Camps - Cancelled for 2020

Down On The Farm - Down Home Fun!

Volunteer Opportunities
Camp is staffed primarily by parents and youth as volunteers. We need for YOU to be a part of the FUN! For each five Scouts a Pack sends to day camp, one adult must be present. For the safety of our
Cubs, all adult volunteers must be registered with the Boy Scouts of America and will need to complete Youth Protection training online AND fill out a camp staff application.
