UNDER THE SEA
ABOUT DAY CAMP
Camp is open to all Cub Scouts who will be in first through fifth grades as of September 2019.
Connecticut Yankee Council’s Day Camps are week long (Monday-Friday) programs hosted in six communities over the course of the summer. Packs, Dens, and individuals are all welcome to register! Scouts will experience all the awesome things camp can offer while remaining close to home. Cub Scouts can participate in many types of activities including archery, field sports, nature, STEM, Scout skills, and more. All areas (especially archery and water activities) place a special emphasis on safety procedures.
Each Friday we will close the week with a Field Day followed by a program where the campers will perform skits and songs for their families!
Cub Scout Day Camps are accredited by the Boy Scouts of America and licensed with the State of Connecticut.
The first 100 campers registered for Cub Scout Day Camp will receive a LIMITED EDITION patch in addition the regular Day Camp patch!
Contact Cindy Pepe at Cynthia.Pepe@scouting.org for more information.
Space is limited to 200 per session.
