Camp Workcoeman will once again host a week long Cub Scout Day Camp!
It is a 5 day program perfect for Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Scouts. Day camp has all the fun of a summer camp experience without the overnight element. Scouts will have a blast swimming, learning new skills, becoming a top shot on the BB and archery ranges, learning new games on the Sports Field, and having fun in the Crafts Lodge.
Day Camp runs 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM and also features several special activities including a cookout, campfire, and awards ceremony.
All the fun takes place under the watchful eye of our highly trained and certified staff ensuring a safe and fun experience. Camp Workcoeman is a Nationally Accredited Camp by the BSA and has a long history in Scouting since 1924.
Be sure to sign up for this summer blast today!
Two special Saturdays (July 24 and August 14, 2021) of program filled Cub Scout family camp will be offered! Baloo’s Family Adventure at Camp Workcoeman is a great opportunity for Cub Scouts to enjoy a summer camp experience without the worries of being away from home. Located along the shore of beautiful West Hill Pond in New Hartford, Baloo’s Family Adventure is open to all Cub Scouts and their families as the program centers around fun for all! You will take advantage of our various program areas with activities including BB/archery shooting, swimming, crafts, and more! The event will end with a family campfire in the amphitheater featuring songs, skits, cheers, and awards! Lunch will be provided. Overnight camping is of course also available in our new family campsite.
Be sure to check out our unit and family camping opportunities!
We know the importance of getting youth outdoors and involved in the programs of Adventure. We are taking every step to ensure that this summer will be SAFE and FUN! Camp will be awesome this summer, but it will look a little different than what we are used to. We have instituted protocols and procedures in order to keep our Scouts, Scouters, staff, and families healthy and safe. The procedures and safety measures have been promoted by federal agencies and the American Camping Association Field Guide for Camps. These multi-layered strategies prove effective and reduce the risk of transmission. Learn more about specific COVID guidelines.
