Q. What types of camping does Cub Scouts offer?
There are three types of camping in Cub Scouts:
- Pack Campouts: These are weekend camping events organized by the Pack with activities run by Pack families. We announce these throughout the year and the cost is low—usually about $20/person.
- District-organized family camping: These are typically weekend events that you attend on your own, held at district camp facilities across northeastern Wisconsin, that include participants from Packs all over the district. Examples are Dad & Lad and Mom & Son. They run in late spring and/or early fall. The details of these are announced by the district later. The cost is about $30/person.
- District-organized resident camp: These are summer camps that run 4 days, 3 nights held at one of the district camp facilities. As a Pack we attend two camps, one for cub scouts and a second for Webelos Scouts. Cost is about $165 per person.

Summer Resident Camp F.A.Q.'s
Q. When do we register for summer camp?
Camp reservations for district resident summer camps start in November and it is important we reserve early to guarantee availability and the facilities we want.
Q. What District resident camps are available?
- Cub Scout World Rokilio: If you are a current Lion, Tiger, Wolf, or Bear you are eligible to attend Cub Scout World at Rokolio in Kiel, WI. (However, current Bears are encouraged to attend Webelos Resident Camp instead.) A parent MAY attend but is not required, except for current Lion scouts in which case the council requires they have an adult attend camp with them. Scouts sleep inside lodge buildings, there is limited room available for adults to sleep inside or adults may sleep outside in tents.
- Webelos Resident Camp: If you are a current Bear or First-Year Webelos, you may attend Webelos camp at Twin Lakes. A parent MAY attend but is not required - Webelos are supposed to be working toward the independence of being Boy Scouts. Scouts and Adults sleep in camp provided platform tents.
Q. When is the payment due?
Each camp costs approximately $165 per PERSON attending (boy or adult). A nonrefundable deposit of $50 per person is due at registration. The balance is due in March.
Q. Can I register later?
Maybe—it depends if there is space at camp. We have not had a problem adding a few scouts to the camp roster in the past, but the camp sessions can fill up quickly and we cannot guarantee a spot unless you sign up early.
Q. What if I sign up and pay and then can’t go?
Deposits paid are non-refundable. Once the final payments are made to the council in March full payments are non-refundable.
Q. Is financial assistance available for camp?
Our fundraising opportunities are a great way to pay for summer camp. The Bay Lakes Council also has a Campership program available for scouts with financial hardships that can show they are already doing your part in the pack fundraising efforts. Contact the camping coordinator for more information.
