Aloha Council Cub Scout Day Camp
What is Day Camp?
Cub Scout Day Camp is often called "the camp that comes to the boy." Day Camp is an organized two- or three-day program for Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts under certified leadership, at an approved site, during daylight or twilight hours. Siblings are not permitted to participate. What is offered is a high quality program brought to you by many dedicated volunteers at a reasonable cost! Day Camps are conducted in accordance with established standards as given in the National Standards for Cub Scout Day Camps.
The Day Camp program varies at each of the 10 camps throughout Hawaii. The fee includes a Camp T Shirt, Patch, craft and program supplies. Fees must be submitted with the completed application and health forms.
