Cub Scout Camp
Camping is what many youth enjoy most about Scouting. Camp programs use natural surroundings to provide Scouts with numerous opportunities to experience physical, mental, spiritual and social growth. When they think about Cub Scout camping, most leaders think of Summer Camp. However, Crossroads of America Council strives to provide other camping opportunities for Cub Scouts throughout the year, as well. Opportunities are listed on this page as well as our year-round camping page.
Crossroads of America Council offers many exciting Cub Scout summer camping programs. Registration is now open for 2018 Cub Scout Summer Camps! Packs register and attend Cub Scout Camp as a group. Click on the link below to take you to the registration page.
Belzer Day Camp - Pack Registration
Belzer Day Camp, is the premiere Day Camp experience for Cubs in the greater Indianapolis metro area. With a full time camp staff delivering an exciting program in a world class camping facility, all of your Scouts, from Tigers through Arrow of Light will have terrific time!
Adventure Camp - Pack Registration
Adventure Camp is a 4 day/3 night camp for Wolves, Bears, Webelos, Arrow of Light Scouts and their leaders. Everything is provided to make this a good first overnight experience for Scouts, including modern amenities, tents with cots, and meals served in our dining hall.
District Day Camps
District Day Camps are offered in their area for those Scouts who can't easily travel to Camp Belzer. District Day Camps are planned and coordinated by a team of volunteers from packs in the area. District Day Camps are available to packs from any district.
Community Camp - Individual Registration (coming in early 2018)
Community Day Camp is an opportunity for all elementary aged kids to visit Camp Belzer. This week-long camp is led by camp staff and does not require parental/volunteer leadership. If there is a Scout who cannot attend Belzer Day Camp with his pack, or who wants to attend for a second week, this camp provides those opportunities. Community Camp also invites non-Scouting children from the area to have a great summer camp experience alongside Scouts. Any youth aged 6 - 11 years old may participate in this program. This includes Scouts, siblings, community members, boys and girls alike. Continue reading to learn more about Community Camp.
Pack Camp Resources
If you would like assistance promoting summer camp to your families, we are here to help! The council offers tools that can assist you in preparing your Cubs and parents for summer camp including the following:
Finances should never be a reason for a Scout not to attend camp. Crossroads of America Council offers a Campership program where recipients can be awarded up to 50% of the early camp fee in exchange for performing an age-appropriate service project.
The 2018 Campership application will be available beginning January 2, 2018. For Summer Camp, applications must be submitted by March 1, 2018 to be considered for the full value of the award. Requests submitted after March 1st will still be eligible to receive a reduced level of summer camp support. Applications for other camping programs may be submitted at any time. Contact the council camping office by phone at (317) 813-7067 or by email for more information.
