Camp is the place where Cub Scouts get to participate in fun events such as canoeing, archery, BB shooting, rappelling, swimming, wilderness survival, and more.
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 both now, and later, as a member of a Scout troop.
Our district and council-organized events supplement Pack and den programs and events such as family campouts and Webelos Den overnighters that are also a crucial part of the outdoor experience for Cub Scouts.
Each of the three districts of the Pony Express Council offers a Cub Scout Day Camp. These take place at locations that fit the program needs of each year’s Day Camp theme and activities.
Our Council’s Day Camps can last between 2 and 3 days and are for Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos Scouts. Day Camps are held during the day or early evening and generally do not include overnight camping.
Family Adventure Camp
At Family Adventure Camp, Cub Scouts and their families can camp overnight at Camp Geiger for one night. This camp has a different theme every year and is run by the Camp Geiger staff. Family Adventure Camp is open to all Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos Scouts and their families.
Spooktacular is the annual Halloween-themed Camp Geiger open house for all Cub Scouts and their families. No pre-registration is required, and everyone is encouraged to wear their costumes. Some of the programs offered include a haunted house, haunted hayrides, BB shooting, archery, crafts, and games.
