The Boy Scouts of America, Cascade Pacific Council offers day camps in communities throughout our service area.  There are 12 different locations in order to serve all our neighborhoods. Day camp offers our newest Cub Scouts a chance to experience our great camping program but also have the comfort of going home every night. It is attended by dens or packs of Cub Scouts (youth in grades 1st through 5th) that rotate from station to station to participate in BB gun shooting, archery, crafts, games, nature hikes, cooking, and other activities. The Day camp season is usually shorter than resident camp and offers an opportunity to continue evening activities through the summer. Day camp staff go home at night and return each morning.
