Magness Adventure Camp

Come join the fanfare of the "2008 Magness Games" this coming summer! In 2008, there will be 15 three day, two night sessions for Cub Scouts, leaders and families. Magness Adventure Camp offers a unique age-specific, grade appropriate, exciting program for all Cub Scouts and their families who attend. 

Sign up for Magness Adventure Camp before March 30th and Cub Scouts and their siblings will receive a $10.00 discount and a t-shirt. Everyone who signs up before April 30th will receive a "2008 Magness Games" t-shirt. (There is no cost for children under 5, however, they will not receive a t-shirt.)

Summer Camp

The Denver Area Council is proud to present Boy Scout camping programs to provide fun and adventure for your Scouts this coming summer. A variety of resident camp and high adventure programs are available to serve the Scouts in your troop, whether you have first year Scouts who have never been to summer camp, or Varsity Scouts that want to take their adventure to the next level.

Camp promotion DVD's are available to assist with your unit camping promotions. Simply fill out an online form and a camp promotion DVD will be mailed to you. Also if you would like a member of the Camping Committee to visit your unit and do a presentation for your Scouts and families to get excited about camping in the Denver Area Council, you can call the Council Service Center at 303-455-5522 or complete the Unit Camp Promotion Promotion Survey and a member of the Camping Committee will contact you.

Sign up for Summer Camp today as space is limited and camp sites are filling up fast!
