Cub Scout Camping

Flint River Council Approved Cub Camping:

  • Tiger Cubs may participate in boy-parent excursions, day camp, pack overnighter or Council organized family camping.

  • Cub Scouts/Webelos may participate in overnight camping at Council owned/managed properties or Council approved camping areas when supervised by his mother or father. If a parent cannot attend, arrangements must be made by the boy’s family for another adult to be a substitute at the campout. No adult should be responsible for more than one boy other than his or her own. In most cases the 1 Adult/1Boy Ratio should be maintained.

  • Webelos may also attend overnight camping with Boy Scout troops such as camp-o-rees and Klondike derbies. In most cases the 1 Adult/1Boy Ratio should be followed. Webelos dens are definitely encouraged to camp with troops, but not during events where the den is not the focus if the troop’s attention. When a Webelos den camps with troops, they should be doing so at a time when the Webelos Den is the focus of the troop’s attention.

Flint River Council Cub Camping Not Approved:

  • Tiger Cubs are not allowed to take part in Pack/Unit-organized or Family Recreational camping.

  • Cub Scouts are not approved to camp overnight on any property other than at Council owned/managed properties, or Council approved camping areas, and the Boy Scouts of America will not provide certificates of liability insurance.
