Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings to contribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth.

• Camping contributes to good health.
• Camping helps campers develop self-reliance and resourcefulness.
• Camping enhances spiritual growth.
• Camping contributes to social development.
• Camping is an experience in citizenship training.
• Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces boys to the knowledge and skills that they will learn and apply more thoroughly as a Boy Scout.

Cub Scouting offers camping opportunities for Cub Scouts through day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, council-organized family camps, and pack overnighters.

Here is an example of a sample check list we would use for our camp outs. You can also check out the Beginners Guide to Camping as well.

Pack 316 plans a variety of support and encouragement for the Cub Scouts camping experiences. Our pack has organized family, den and pack wide campouts throughout the year.
