Cub Scout Summer Camp Programs
Camp Bullowa offers two exciting summer camping opportunities for our Cub Scouts. They are Cub Scout Day Camp and a Cub Parent Weekend. If your son has experienced the fun and excitement of either Day Camp or Cub Parent Weekend, then WELCOME BACK for a summer of “Knights in the Woods“! If this will be your first experience at camp, then rest assured we would do everything to make your son’s (and yours!) experience the best possible! Take some time with your son, if you can, to share that with him. These memories are priceless and last a lifetime.
We will have Magliner Brand hand trucks by the front entrance if you have luggage you need to get into the camp for your convenience.
To get more information about a particular program, make sure you download the 2008 Summer Camp Guide or go to the pertinent web pages to learn what adventures await you and your son.
