Scouts BSA Virtual Summer Camp
You may not be able to go to a DAC summer camp this year, so we are bringing camp to you! This Zoom-based series offers three Merit Badge themes. There will be optional off-line challenges to get as much of a true camping experience as possible. Scouts can gain advancements, interact with other Scouts around the country, and count on having a great time!
Camps are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration, program fees, and schedule details are available through the registration links below.
Spending too much time inside? Looking for something to do as a family this summer? The “Open Scouting at Magness” program is an experience that allows Cub Scouts and family members to visit Magness adventure Camp and enjoy a day of Scouting fun! The program includes Archery, BB’s, Nature Hikes, Crafts and many more activities. A single day of fun is on Saturdays or Sundays in July and August from 9:00am to 4:00pm at Magness Adventure Camp.
Cub Scout packs that are interested in doing a adventure just for the pack on another day can email Devan Mapp to discuss openings and opportunities.
