Day Camp Information

We are gearing up for another great year of Cub Scout Day Camps.  This year’s theme is ‘Explore the Seven Seas’.

Cub Scout Day Camp is a weeklong outdoor experience for boys. Camps vary in the hours of operation, but they normally run from 8:30 or 9:00 AM to 3:30 or 4:00 PM. Twilight camps normally run from 3 or 4 PM until dark. This gives parents the opportunity to be involved on a more flexible schedule.  All registered Cub Scouts are eligible to attend day camp.

The early discount to register for Day Camp is $95.00 per camper for all fees paid on or before April 30. After April 30, the normal registration fee is $105.00 until June 1. No registrations will be accepted after June 1 without the written permission of the camp or program director for the desired camp.

The Three Rivers District will be running two Day Camps this year.

  • Portsmouth – Coast Guard Base – Twilight Camp
    • Director: Christian Tynch
    • Dates: June 22 – 26, 2015, 3:00PM – 9:00PM
  • Chesapeake – St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church
