Who can attend?
Arrow of Light Summer Camp is open to youth entering 5th grade in the fall
(Webelos rank). Siblings of the same age group are welcome to
attend this program and participate alongside the Cub Scouts.
Do parents have to attend?
highly encourage that an adult attend with every Scout, not only does
this help the Scout but it is a great experience for the adult as well.
This adult can be a parent, guardian or other family member over the
age of 18. A den needs one adult for every four youth at camp with a minimum of two adults per group.
How much does it cost?
$150 Youth Early Bird Fee; $155 Youth after May 1st
What is included in the fee?
The fee includes all of your meals, a patch for every participant, housing (tent or indoor), program supplies, and staffing costs.
Is there financial aid available?
We think that every Scout should have an opportunity to attend Summer
Camp and we do not want cost to hold anyone back from this experience.
If you are in need, please complete the Campership Form to
receive up to 50% of the youth cost covered.
When is Cub Scout Summer Camp?
sessions will typically run from the middle of June to the middle of August. See the
Register tab for this years dates!

may be helpful to pack your gear in a plastic tote instead of a

in the case of rain!
