Cub Scout Camping

North Star District
Cub Scout Camping

Camping for the Cub Scouts is key to building interest in the outdoors and interest in becoming a Boy Scout.  The North Star District offers a Cub Day Camp every June.  Day Camp is not an overnight camping opportunity.  Click here for more information on Cub Day Camp.  There are no district Cub Scout overnight camping opportunities.

Pack Overnight Campouts

These are pack-organized overnight events involving more than one family from a single pack, focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at council-approved locations. If non-members (siblings) participate, the event must be structured accordingly to accommodate them, BSA health and safety and youth protection guidelines apply. In most cases, each youth member will be under the supervision of a parent or guardian. In all cases, each youth participant is responsible to a specific adult.

To conduct a Pack Overnight Campout you may need the following:

  • A Tour and Activity Plan filed with Circle Ten Council 2 weeks prior to your campout (click here for information)
  • Reservations at one of the Circle Ten Council Camps (Click HERE for camp information)
  • At least 1 Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) trained adult planning to attend 

 

Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award 

Tiger Cubs, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts have the opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. Boys may earn the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are completed each year. The first time the award is earned, the boy will receive the pocket flap award, which is to be worn on the right pocket flap of the uniform shirt. Each successive time the award is earned, a wolf track pin may be added to the flap. Leaders should encourage boys to build on skills and experiences from previous years when working on the award for a successive year.
