Cub Scout Family Weekend

Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces boys and girls to the outdoors and helps them develop outdoor skills at an age-appropriate level that will be applied more thoroughly in Scouts BSA. As Cub Scouts progress, the opportunities for outdoor adventures become more challenging.



Rip Van Winkle will be offering a new program this summer from July 14-16, 2023. For those scouts looking for the ultimate Cub Scout summer camp experience, this is it! This camp is a three-day and two-night program with fun around every turn. Scouts will have a chance to realize their full potential while taking part games, activities and advancement.

Packs are to attend and camp as a unit. Upon arrival, you'll recieve a schedule listing times and locations of the weekend's activities. Scouts are welcome to participate in any or all of the weekend's activities. Times will also be alloted should packs wish to run any unit based activities. Registration for the program and for campsites can be reserved through the council office (845) 339-0846. Please note that meals will be the responsibility of the individual packs.

Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Soccer
