Cub Scout Day Camp

We continue to monitor COVID-19 guidance and may adjust schedules and activities accordingly. If we have to adjust schedules due to COVID-19 changes, we will offer full refunds to affected participants, so PLEASE register soon without that concern.  Early registration helps us to make sure we are prepared for EVERYONE.


"Down on the Farm” is the 2020 Day Camp theme!  Enjoy all the traditional Day Camp games, crafts, and activities with a fun Farm theme!  Scouts will have plenty of fantastic adventures at Day Camp, some of which may include shooting bb guns and archery, playing games, singing songs, doing skits, and most of all HAVING FUN! We will fish, do a craft or two, shoot BB guns and Bows and Arrows, play lots of games, and much more! 


The Cub Scout Day Camp program is a fun and educational event offered each summer to all Cub Scout aged youth (currently registered, or even prospective Scouts*) who want an exciting 1-4 day event. Some of the activities that are held at camp will allow the Scouts to earn achievements towards their rank advancement; other activities will be for the fun and enjoyment of the outdoors. A team of volunteers in your area are busily planning a fantastic camp for 2020.


Cub Scout Day Camps in the Great Rivers Council are conducted by trained and certified directors who use the standards as set by the Boy Scouts of America to ensure a quality program is being offered. Cub Scouts attend camp with their pack leadership, parents, or guardians. The program is staffed by volunteer leaders who are trained in the program in which they are assisting. Scouts BSA youth are also encouraged to help out at camp as volunteer Den Chiefs as long as they are at least 14 years old and have achieved the First Class rank. Every Day Camp is in a different location and follows a different program structure; however, each camp will follow the same theme.


*Youth that are not already in Cub Scouts should contact David Harris at or 573-449-2561 Ext. 203 to get signed up for Cub Scouts before trying to register for Day Camp.

We will be running a total of 6 Day Camps this summer. Scouts are encouraged to attend the Day Camp that best fits their schedule and travel abilities.
