Join us and discover the exciting world of Scouting at Day One. This is a great opportunity for new Cub Scouts to see what the Scouting experience is all about.
At Day One, Cub Scouts participate in outdoor activities, games and a full day of hands-on introductions to BB guns, campfire cooking, science projects, art and leatherworking. For the more adventurous Scouts, there’s even mud cave exploration! (Activities may vary by location.)
Come when you can and plan to stay all day. Families are welcome and picnic lunches are encouraged. Concessions and souvenirs of your day’s adventure will be available for purchase at the Trading Post.
Day One is a terrific way to jump-start your Cub Scout on the Scouting path.
Boy Scout Roundtable is a great resource for Scoutmasters and adult leaders to get information on district and council events. Each month there is a guest speaker or presentation on program ideas for Boy Scouts.

Join us for this fun, age-appropriate, but scary activity to add to the Halloween spirit. Cub Scouts and their families are invited to the outstanding facilities of Cub World for an evening of enjoyable activities. Some activity areas are more frightening than others with ghosts and goblins providing a safe but scary experience appropriate for most Cub Scout-aged boys.
Fall Fright Fest is limited to Cub Scouts, siblings (between the ages of 6-11) and their parents, and only 1,000 reservations will be taken. Your activity fee includes the event program and a goody bag for each child.
Plan to spend two hours to finish your Fright Fest experience. Groups begin every 30 minutes.
Life Scouts, coaches, Scoutmasters, and Troop Committee members are strongly encouraged to attend one of these seminars in order to better understand the process of going from Life to Eagle. The seminar is a combined session for adults and future Eagle candidates followed by a break-out session. The 60 to 90 minute seminar includes handouts and a display of past projects. Please show up in Class A uniforms and there is no pre-registration needed.
