Cub Scout CampingCubCampPic

Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You'll learn to live with others in the out-of-doors. You'll learn to be a good citizen of the outdoors.

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 get skills you will learn and use more, later, as a Boy Scout.

Cub Scout camping has day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, family camps, and pack overnighters. Lincoln Trails Council offers the following types of camping for our younger Scouts. Please contact the Council Service Center at 800-416-2328 with any camping questions.

Pack Overnighters

Packs on their own can hold overnight campouts for the families in the pack. Cub Scouts' brothers and sisters can go on these pack overnighters. In most cases, each Scout will camp with a parent or guardian. At least one adult leader must be BALOO trained for a pack to hold a Pack campout. Webelos Dens are the only Cub Scout dens allowed to camp as a den, but they must still be sure a trained leader is present.
