MISSION STATEMENT

The Western Massachusetts Council Cub Scout Day Camp is an application of the Boy Scouts of America’s commitment to preparing young men to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes in accord with the Cub Scout Promise and Law.

The goal for each camper is to do his best in a safe atmosphere that allows boys to challenge themselves and gain recognition for successes achieved and learn from struggles faced. Campers gain skills that will prepare them for further Scouting endeavors. Respect for others is developed through friendship, teamwork and acceptance of individuals’ abilities and differences.    

The camp fosters the development of young men physically, mentally, emotionally, morally, socially and spiritually.

 

VOLUNTEER: SCOUT LEADERS, BOY SCOUTS AND VENTURERS, AND FAMILY MEMBERS

Our day camps are administered by nationally trained staff, but are run totally by volunteers!  We always need more volunteers to make these camps run smoothly. CLICK HERE for Staff Application Materials and camp job descriptions.

Staff must attend one 3-hour training session from those offered and camp setup the Sunday afternoon before camp. Choose from Tuesday, June 5 at the Hadley Senior Center, Saturday, June 9 at Moses Scout Reservation Aquatics Building during Family Camping and WHOA, or Thursday, June 14 at the Westfield Service Center.

Please ask how you might volunteer - no prior camp or scouting experience necessary!
