Who is Camp Henson For?

Cub Scout Resident Camp is for boys entering the second and third grades. Camp sessions last for 3 days and 2 nights and are geared toward an introduction to the outdoor program of Boy Scouts of America. Activities are developed around Cub Scout requirements and are theme oriented.

Webelos ResidentCamp is for boys entering...the fourth and fifth grades.

Webelos completing fifth grade should contact the Boy Scout Troop they will be joining and make arrangements to attend camp with that Troop.


Webelos Camp lasts for 6 days and 5 nightsfor Webelos entering 5th grade (Aug 4-9) OR 3days and 2 nights (Aug 4-6) and is an introduction to Long-term camping. Special Webelos mini-sessions are also available lasting 3 days and 2 nights for those who prefer a shorter stay. The program in both types of Webelos sessions is developed around Webelos outdoor activities and advancement requirements and is theme oriented.


All resident camp costs (except Trading Post spending money) are included in the camp fee. The pack or den must register as a group (rninimum 5 Scouts) and provide at least two leaders to attend camp with the boys, or each group. The leaders may be den or pack leaders, or other interested parents.


WHY ?

Cub and Webelos Resident camp is an introduction to camping. It is not meant to be Boy Scout Camping, but rather a shorter, less strenuous type of camping. A parent is required to attend with their son. The primary objective is to provide Cubs and Webelos, parents and other leaders with a meaningful, fun filled experience, and to strengthen parent-son relationships. For more information about the program offered for Pack 532 contact Jeff Bell.
