Cub Scout Summer Camp Theme 2018

This year, the Cub Scout D-Bar-A Scout Ranch theme is Survivor: Scout Edition. Cub Scouts will participate in friendly competition in Scout Skills and games. The fundamentals of Scouting will be intertwined in everything the Cubs will do during their time at camp. When the scouts depart from the ranch they will “Be Prepared” for activities such as: outdoor cooking, knot tying, shelter building, orienteering, basic survival skills, age appropriate first aid, fire building, patrol and den team building, swimming, shooting sports, archery
