Family

Cub Scouts, Webelos, and their families are all welcome at camp! Cub Scouts and their parents can register either as part of their Pack, or as a family. Check with your Cubmaster or Pack Camping Coordinator to see if your Pack is coming to camp! Cub and Webelos Resident camp is an introduction to camping. It is not meant to be Boy Scout camping, but rather a shorter, less strenuous type of camping. A parent is encouraged to attend with their son.

From the Del-Mar-VA Council website and or literature:

Cub Scout and Webelos Resident Camp 

Boys entering the second through fifth grades. Camp sessions last for 3 days and 2 nights and are geared toward an introduction to the outdoor program of the Boy Scouts of America. Activities are developed around Cub Scout and Webelos advancement  requirements and are theme oriented. Cub Scout and Webelos Resident Camp operates Friday to Sunday. Units will meet at their Pack meeting location Friday morning and depart from there at 8am staggering the arrival of units at Henson on Friday morning. Units will participate in the 3 day/2 night program with age and rank appropriate activities and depart after lunch with the signature ice cream sundae around 1:30pm on Sunday.

The Activities & Facilities

Some activities are shooting sports, games, swimming and fishing, handicrafts, a water carnival and much more. All programs, facilities and meals are provided by a carefully trained and certified summer camp staff. Facilities include canvas tents with platforms and cots, our full indoor dining hall and comfort stations complete with hot water showers and flush toilets! Campers are each awarded a patch to commemorate their experiences and take home memories that will last a lifetime.

FAQ

HEALTH LODGE - A qualified first aider is on duty 24 hours a day, supervised by a licensed physician. Fire and rescue services are contracted with the Eldorado Fire Dept if needed.

CAMPSITES - Scouts and parents live together in a campsite with canvas tents and wooden floors. Each tent has two cots. Tents are arranged around a picnic table with a canvas roof. All campsites have a campfire ring, water and bathroom facilities. A brand new modern comfort station is available for Scouts and Adults.

DEN ORGANIZATION - Campers will be divided into camp dens upon arrival. Every effort will be made to keep groups from the same Pack in the same campsite. Webelos and Cub Scouts, however, are not mixed for program.

CAMP STAFF - The camp is operated by a high quality, trained staff. All of our key area directors are trained and certified at BSA National Camping Schools. A camp staff member known as a Program Specialist is assigned to each camp den. This young man is responsible for seeing that your den has the best possible experience at camp.

MEALS - Meals are prepared in our camp kitchen and served cafeteria style three times a day. Campers eat in our dining hall, where camp staff conducts a program after each meal.

SCHEDULE - A Daily Camp Program plan will be prepared by the camp staff for each camp den in attendance. The program plan will contain specific information on activity periods & location as well as information about campwide activities. Activity periods will be in one of many different program areas.

DEN TIME - Dens will also be given time to do activities on their own. Practice for the campfire, a fishing trip, or a hike are only a few of the possibilities.

ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES - Most activities in the program areas are developed using the advancement requirements from the Cub and Webelos handbooks. A list will be provided of the topics covered. Parents and leaders, however, are responsible for all testing and signing of completions.
