Overnight Cub Scout Camp & Cub Scout Family Camp
Cub Scout overnight camps like Wolf/Bear resident camp, Webelos Camp, Arrow of light Camp, and Cub Adventure Camp are great opportunities for your Scouts to start out the year with a few Adventures/Advancements well underway and completed, while having a super fun time at camp!
Family Camps are opportunities for Scouts to spend a day and a night, over a weekend, at one of our properties, sharing the fun of the outdoors with mom, dad, and Cub Scout-aged siblings! In addition to Family Camp, we have Dad and Lad Camp in April, and Mom and Me camp in September.
Summer Camps are in June and July, at Camp May (Beaumont), Warren Levs, Pine Ridge, and Lewallen.

Boy Scout and Venturing Summer Camp
The Greater St. Louis Area Council offers one of the premier summer camp experiences in the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts and Venturers will encounter challenges they first thought were beyond their ability and find programs that stir the imagination. Using the outdoors as our classroom, campers will build character and skills that can be used in their everyday lives. From our facilities, to our staff, to our food, summer camp is better in the Greater St. Louis Area Council.
Scouts and Venturers also have the option of attending any of our many specialty camps. These include Catholic Adventure Week, STEM Camp, the S-F Ranger Program, Boy Scout Week at Swift, Horse Camp, and Eagle Trail Week. We also offer six sessions of National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT), which helps youth build their leadership skills and take that next challenge! More information on all our summer camp options can be found at https://stlbsa.org/activities/camping/summer-camps/boy-scout-summer-camp/ .
