Cub Scouting Camping

Cub Scout camping

Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surrounding to contribute to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth. 

Crossroads of America Council offers a variety of year-round camping opportunities for Scouts from day camps and week-long resident camp to leadership-based training camp and camp staff. For more information on the council camping operations, contact Tucker Laprade, Director of Program & Camping, by email or by phone at (317) 813-7084.

Cub Scout Camping

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.

Crossroads of America Council offers many exciting Cub Scout summer camping programs. Packs register and attend Cub Scout Camp as a group. Click on a link below to take you to the registration page.

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 their 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, and community members—boys and girls alike.
