Why Cub Scout Day Camp?

Scouts who participate in day camp are more likely to remain in Cub Scouts, bridge to Boy Scouts and make the fundamental ideals of Scouting a part of their adult lives. Through day camp, Cub Scouts will:

  1. Improve self esteem, self respect, and self confidence
  2. Make friends and develop social skills
  3. Participate in fun learning opportunities
  4. Be brave and adventurous
  5. Try new things
  6. Become more responsible
  7. Improve leadership skills
  8. Grow in their appreciation of the outdoors
  9. Work toward rank advancement
  10. Have a life-long memorable experience

Canyons Cub Scout Day is unlike other Orange County Cub Scout camps in that we are open to boys and girls in first grade through fifth grade.  You do not need to be a registered Scout to attend. Older children and parents may assist at camp through a variety of volunteer opportunities. Younger children (potty-trained through age five) may attend the Tot Lot if they have a parent volunteering at camp.  There's truly something to do for almost every member of the family at Canyons Day Camp.  Contact us for more information
