What is Cub Scout Day Camp?
Organized day camping is defined as an experience of a Cub Scout group living in an outdoor environment. Day Camp is a multi-level experience under the supervision of trained leadership carried on during the summer daytime. The program of activities provides fun and adventure in the outdoors at a site that provides seclusion and natural resources. Emphasis is placed on new experiences difficult to obtain in the usual indoor den atmosphere.
The Pioneer Trails District Day Camp is organized by the Denver Area council and is a three day program for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. It is conducted under certified leadership at an approved site during daylight hours. Day camp does not include any overnight activities. Certification of the day camp director and program directors is provided through the BSA National Camping School.
Day Camp programs are theme-based and usually include nature activities, sports, scout skills, crafts, and shooting sports (BB Guns, Archery, Sling Shots, Pellet Rifles, etc.). Den and pack leaders often make up the nucleus of the Day Camp Staff and also the Walking Group Guides.
The Pioneer Trails District Cub Scout Day Camp has been nationally accredited by the BSA for many years.
