Cub Scout Camp

Camping is what many youth enjoy most about Scouting. Camp programs use natural surroundings to provide Scouts with numerous opportunities to experience physical, mental, spiritual and social growth. When they think about Cub Scout camping, most leaders think of Summer Camp. However, Crossroads of America Council strives to provide other camping opportunities for Cub Scouts throughout the year, as well. Opportunities are listed on this page as well as our year-round camping page.

Summer Camp

Community Day Camp is an opportunity for all elementary aged kids to visit Camp Belzer. This week-long camp is led by camp staff and does not require parental/volunteer leadership. If there is a Scout who cannot attend Belzer Day Camp with his pack, or who wants to attend for a second week, this camp provides those opportunities. Community Camp also invites non-Scouting children from the area to have a great summer camp experience alongside Scouts. Any youth aged 6 - 11 years old may participate in this program. This includes Scouts, siblings, community members, boys and girls alike. Continue reading to learn more about Community Camp.

For Summer Camp, applications must be submitted by March 1, 2018 to be considered for the full value of the award.
