About Camp

Our Camp:
 
     Our Camp is a B.S.A. Nationally Accredited Scout Camp.  We offer an outdoor activity program for all boys currently enrolled in Cub Scouts, from Tiger Cubs to Webelos.  The scouts are exposed to 5 days of scouting skills, values, sports, service and citizenship.  The Scouts will get to learn cooking skills, first aid, nature, crafts and safety.  They will have the opportunity to try shooting sports, such as Archery and BB's while under close, certified adult supervision.  Many awards may be worked on and completed while at camp, including numerous belt loops and activity pins along with the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award All who attend Camp will have a memorable time. 

 

Our staff is made up of qualified, trained and highly dedicated Scouts, Scouters and Volunteers who strive to put on a quality program that will positively influence our young Cubs.  You will be given the chance to meet a lot of new people and friends and get a feel for what adventures lie ahead of you.  Enroll your scout and find out first hand what Scouting is all about!

     While at camp, your scout will have the opportunity to work on many requirements for rank advancement as well as Belt Loops, Activity Pins and the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award

 
Tiger Cubs:
     Our Camp has developed an exciting program for incoming Tiger Cubs in order to introduce them to the fun of both Cub Scout Day Camp and Scouting.  Tigers are invited to attend a two day program of Camp
activities on Thursday & Friday.  Please note that the Tiger program includes an adult partner and any incoming Tiger who registers for Camp needs to have an adult partner accompany them for the day (Adults are required to be at least 21 years of age).  Incoming Tigers must also complete a BSA Cub Scout registration form.  Contact your local Pack or call Baltimore Area Council Headquarters (443) 573-2513.

 

Girls Camp Experience:  

      This year we are once again pleased to offer an opportunity for older girls to participate more fully in our Camp activities. Girls may travel to the scout stations, just as their Cub Scout brothers do. In order for a girl to participate, a parent MUST be in Camp while they attend (We do not provide day care for Scout siblings).  Girls must be at least 7 years of age (Younger siblings will be assigned to the “Kids Korner”).  Only those girls attending on Monday for the required safety briefing will be permitted to shoot Archery and BB’s.

 

Camp Set-up & Orientation:

 
   
All families attending camp are required to attend one of the Orientation Dates the weekend before camp.  You need only attend one of these days.  This allows families to see the facility, go over the rules and regulations regarding camp, and pick up their camp t-shirts and den assignments.

We also ask that parents assist in either Camp Set-Up or Camp Tear-Down. Many hands make for light work in the construction and break down of camp.  You need only attend one of the options.

If you chose to help with camp set up, set up is from 10am until 2pm on the Saturday and Sunday immediately preceding the camp.  You are only required to attend one of those times.  It is also suggested to bring a lunch with you, as well as water and drinks.

If you chose to help with camp take down, we start camp take down immediately following the closing of camp on Friday & and finish on the next day (Saturday) from 10am—2pm.  You are only required to attend one of those times.  It is also suggested to bring a lunch with you, as well as water and drinks.

Dates:
Saturday, June 17th & Sunday, June 18th at the Anne Arundel Co. Fairgrounds.
Set-Up starting at 10:00am, Orientation at 2:00pm.

Website Info:

     Our website was launched in 2003.  It's mission was to provide camp information to the adults and staff of the Four Rivers District as well as promote the camp.  We are sponsored by KABAM.net, a web hosting provider that has graciously donated us server space.  After several years of operation, the site took over as the primary source for obtaining required forms and applications to register for camp.  All of this helps cut down on printing costs, keeps camp fees low, reduces paper waste and makes the world a little "Greener".  We will continue to provide up-to-date information as it comes in from the Day Camp Committee.
