There are numerous options for scouting activites over the summer. The best place to find out what is being offered this summer is on the Potawatomi Area Council Website.

Day camp

Overview

Typically the council will offer a Cub Scout day camp open to all ranks of Cub scouting. The program is offered at One of 4 different locations: Mukwonago County Park, Muskego County Park, Menomonee County Park, or Indian Mound Reservation in Oconomowoc. The activities may include

  • Archery
  • BB Gun Shooting
  • Swimming/Aquatics
  • Nature
  • Sports
  • Fishing
  • Knots
  • Fire Building
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics)
  • Crafts

Scouts will be divided into dens by grade level, so that age appropriate activities can be conducted, but may be combined with dens from other packs. Typically the scout will attend for about 8 hours, and will bring a bag lunch to eat. Uniforms are not required, and a camp T-Shirt will be provided. This shirt can also be used at future pack evens as a "Class B" uniform.

Adult Supervision Requirements

Packs must provide 1 adult per grade level, per day, but they will be combined with other Packs to meet the BSA standard of 2 Deep Leadership. Packs who wish to have Day Camp Dens composed ONLY of Scouts from their home Pack must provide 2 adults per grade level. Please note that Dens may still mix Packs to meet the needs of all Cub Scouts.

Webelos Resident Camp

Overview

Webelos Resident Camp is a short-term camping experience designed to introduce Webelos 1 & Webelos 2, their leaders, and their parents to a theme-based, summertime camping experience that will help the Webelos be prepared for a smooth transition into Scouts BSA. It's a memorable 4 days and 3 nights of thrilling and adventurous activities that keep campers excited for months after the closing campfire.

Webelos Resident Camp is held at the Camp Long Lake (CLL) in Dundee, WI.

At Webelos Resident Camp, Scouts will participate in a variety of activities, including shooting sports, swimming, fishing, Scout skills, and much more. Many of these activities will help Scouts earn various Webelos activity badges and belt loops. Nights will be campfires, fun and games, and the tranquility of CLL. For leaders, it's a great place to spend quality time with your Scouts without the distractions of everyday life and just get away for a couple of days. Resident Camp is pure fun from the time you get up in the morning until the time you crawl into your sleeping bag weary from the day's exciting adventure.

Adult Supervision Requirements

Packs must provide adequate leadership for their Scouts, but every Scout does not need a parent to attend. The ratio of youth to adults must be 8 to 2 or less with a minimum of 2 adults .
