Cub Scout Day Camp

The health and safety of our Scouting family is our first concern and so working to provide Scouting program during the summer of 2021 the Mount Baker Council has made needed changes to facilitate a Cub Scout Day Camp program while also remaining safe and obedient to local health department guidelines. Instead of pulling down our traditional Day Camp page to replace it with the 2021 Day Camp we have a new page to help your family get the info about Cub Weird Science Day Camp you can look forward to. Click the link for more info!

This year’s amazing Cub Scout WEIRD SCIENCE Day Camp program offers both IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL camps! 

Mount Baker Council is proud to offer summer day and twilight camps for ALL boys and girls, Scouts and non-Scouts, entering grades 2-5 in the fall. Tigers (entering grade 1) are welcome to attend with a legal guardian.
Our day camps offer outstanding activities for a week of fun, learning and adventure. Campers are divided into small, well-supervised groups. Boys and girls are placed in same-gender Cub Scout dens.

Lots of fun!
We offer action-packed days with lots of fun — and some learning too. Every day there’s something new to do, learn, and explore! Activities may include: Archery, BB Guns, Boating, Crafts, Fishing, Nature, Scoutcraft, Sports & Games, STEM.

Adults
The key camp staff are National Camp School trained and guide a volunteer staff made up of the attendee’s family and unit members.  A volunteer ratio of 1 adult for every 3 youth from your Pack is needed each day for a safe, fun and successful camp experience. See your Pack Day Camp Coordinator to arrange your volunteer days to ensure adequate coverage for your Pack.  Adults who volunteer for a minimum of 3 days get a free Day Camp Staff t-shirt!

Youth Helpers
Youth ages 11-17 may volunteer to assist in various roles at camp: set up, tear down, den chief type service, assist with stations, gofer and general camp service, tag-a-long support. Youth Helpers who volunteer for at least 3 days also receive a free Day Camp Staff t-shirt!

Tag-a-longs
A Tag-a-long program is available for children (ages 3-5) of adult volunteers each day that the adult is present at camp.  Must be potty trained.  Please provide a lunch and snacks each day.
