Camp Akela is a weekend program (Fri - Sun) for Lions, Tigers, Wolfs, Bears and 1st year Webelos (as of Spring). Cub Scout Resident Camp is an opportunity for Cub Scouts and their adults to spend quality time together working on advancement, enjoying recreational activities and learning about camping.
Activities will be age specific based on rank-so a cub can come back to Cub Scout Resident Camp each year, and get a different experience. 1st Year Webelos can stay at camp for an extra night of camping called the Webelos Outpost.
Campers sleep in two person canvas tents that are supplied by the camp. Activities at Camp Akela have included bouldering, archery, bb-gun target shooting, catapults, swimming in the pool, boating, crafts, nature, and games. Food service is provided in a dining hall.
The cost of camp is $127 per scout and $87 per parent for three days of camping, activities, and meals. The Pack will contribute to each scouts fee based on the success of the wreath/popcorn drive. Additional Camperships" (scholarships) are offered by the council to offset up to 50% of the camping fees and are available here: Link Campership forms are due by 5/31 to Tony or Chip. All campership requests are kept confidential.
Camp Akela is held at Phillippo Scout Reservation in Cannon Falls, MN.
Cub Fall Festival: Campers will have the opportunity to participate in fun fall activities that may include: hayrides, crafts, caramel apple making, field games, fishing, petting zoo, hay maze, obstacle course, BB-gun shooting, archery, and more. (Not all activities will be available at each location.)
The Fall Festival is less intensive than the summer resident camp program. This is a great opportunity for new scouts to learn about camp and for experienced scouts to enjoy a unique day camp experience.
Fun for the whole family - siblings, and friends not in the Scouting program are welcome to register for Fall Festival as well. Siblings that are at least Lion Cub age (going into kindergarten) can participate alongside their Cub Scout sibling. This day camp is a first-taste of Cub Scouts for new and prospective members. $30 for scouts, siblings and friend and $10 for parents. A one to one ratio is required for all k - 2nd graders.
Polar Cubs Camp: The Crown Jewel of school year cub scout outdoor activities. The one they talk about all year long. The one where parents are hesitant to venture out to and even more hesitant to leave when its over. Some of the activities at Polar Cubs have included snow-tubing, broomball, obstacle course, winter nature activities, crafts, snowshoeing, capture the flag, and snow golf.
Webelos have the opportunity to be in a special Webelos program at Polar Cubs, designed just for them to learn about winter survival, animals and outdoor sports.
A hot lunch is provided in the camp dining hall for everyone. Scouts and parents will learn how to keep warm and stay dry in the snow and cold.
