Pack 141 takes advantage of the many wonderful day and resident camps put on by the Northern Star Council. Each event is different, but all programs are geared for Cub Scout fun.
The Northern Star Council offers a wide array of programs in the summer, including Family Camp, Tiger Day Camp, and Discovery Day Camp. The two events Cub Scouts from Pack 141 attend every year as a pack or den are Cub Scout Summer Camp and Arrow of Light Summer Camp.
Adventure awaits at Cub Scout Summer Camp! Running two nights (Friday evening through Sunday afternoon), it’s a weekend full of activities such as swimming, archery, boating, BB guns, climbing, and much more. Staff will guide Scouts and parents every step of the way, so all you need to do is come ready to have some fun! Current Bear Scouts going into Webelos next year may add Webelos Outpost, an extra night of camping, hands-on cooking and skills, and even more fun designed just for them.
Arrow of Light Summer Camp is a crossover camp, combining elements of Cub Scout and Scouts BSA summer camps. This camp runs three nights and features exciting age-based activities including swimming, archery, boating, BB guns, climbing, and many others. While the staff guides Scouts and parents much of the time, Scouts have more opportunities to choose what they want to do, including giving parents a little nap time. An Arrow of Light Outpost is also available, adding a fourth night where Arrow of Light Scouts can experience an actual Scouts BSA summer camp adventure.
The Northern Star Council offers two fun-filled adventures in the fall: Day Camp and the Spooky-Ree Campout.
Fall Day Camp is a half-day opportunity for all Cub Scouts and their families to kick off the school year with a fun experience. New Scouts and parents may participate in activities like archery, BB Guns, GaGa Ball, and games while learning about the year-round camping opportunities Scouting offers. Older Scouts get to learn new skills and enjoy fun outdoor activities.
Come to Stearns Scout Camp or Phillippo Scout Reservation for a scary-good time. This is a two-night campout, though there are some indoor cabin or lodge spots available (but they go quickly!). We’ll scare your socks off while you play games, eat candy, enjoy hay rides, learn camp skills, and have fun. Don’t forget to bring a costume!
There’s one Cub Scout-specific program when the temps dip and the rain turns to snow: Polar Cubs day camp. Polar Cubs is one of the largest Cub Scout day camp programs in the country and it’s happening at a camp near you. This single day program is filled with classic winter activities as well as some unique Scouting adventures. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the fun!
