Hey Cub Scouts, are You Ready for JJ 2016?

summer we’ll literally behaving a blast!  Our theme will be Soaring to New Heights.  We’ll be focusing on space, space explorers and one of the all-time favorites—building and launching rockets!

We’ve opened more days in 2016 to accommodate the demand.  Sessions will run June 6th – August 3rd.  Special Days to keep in mind are:

  • June 6th – Special Needs Day – for youth who need a slower, calmer pace.
  • June 18th – Out of County Day – for those units who drive more than an hour to get to camp

We’ll also be holding three Webelos Overnighters for boys and a member of their family.  IMG_1074In the past these have been a great bonding opportunity for the young man and his family member.  These events are packed from the minute they arrive to the minute they leave.  This year we will be focusing on completing First Responder and Camper.  Click 2016 Webelos Overnighter Achievement Sheet for a complete list of adventures passed off.

Of course, we’ll still be holding our Shooting Sports Shoot Out for youth (yes, boys and GIRLS) who want to spend more time doing archery or shooting BB Guns.  For Cub Scouts we will continue to pass off pin requirements for these two areas until the new program is revealed.

JJ raftsA Bear Goes Fishing and the Shooting Sports Shoot Out takes place on Monday afternoons on the following dates:

  • June 13th
  • June 27th
  • July 11th
  • July 18th
  • August 1st
