Frontier District Day Camp
Cub Scout Day Camp provides fun and adventure in the outdoors for packs and dens. Day camp is an organized 3-day program, under trained leadership, at an approved site, during daylight or early evening hours but not overnight. This year's camp will be June 27th-29th from 9AM - 3PM daily.
Day camp youth participants are limited to registered Tiger Cubs (entering 1st grade for the 2017-2018 school year), Cub Scouts, (wolf entering 2nd grade and Bear entering 3rd grade) and Webelos Scouts (entering 4th or 5th grade).
A Tiger Cub-Adult Partner must register at no charge and attend with their Tiger Cub Scout. Adults referred to as Walking Group Guides must register at no charge and accompany every one to five Cub Scouts or one to five Webelos Scouts. All Scouts who register as individuals must provide their own Walking Group Guides.
The cost of Cub Scout Day camp is $65 for a 3-day camp and $75 for a 4-day camp. If you plan on making payment by check, you will need to send in the registration number, the children attending and what pack the check is for. It is requested that Day Camp fees be paid in full before the day of camp. Fees include hat, t-shirt, water bottle, activity patch and program.

Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Frontier District Scouting units conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members to Sign up for Scouting in the Spring. The Fall Recruitment effort focuses on recruiting boys that are K through 4th grades, but is not limited to that. The Boy Scouts recruit 5th-11th grade young men and Venturing recruits 8th grade young men and women between ages 13-20.
These recruiting events are put on by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews throughout the local community. Our main objective is to give multiple sign up opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting and to fulfill our promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program.
