Refunds will be handled on a case-by-case basis. A request for a refund must be done so by emailing “Homesickness” is not considered to be a refundable medical reason.



Due to Massachusetts and BSA licensing requirements, you must submit for each child and adult enrolled in our camps, a BSA Annual Health & Medical Record parts A & B, front and back copy of health insurance card, and a physician's Certificate of Immunization (current within last 12 months and signed by a physician). *If your family has decided to not immunize your child, a waiver must be provided.

Specific state immunization information can be downloaded below.

These are REQUIRED to be submitted prior to campers and staff arriving at camp and inspected by the local Board of Health. Please note that these forms must be provided each year.

Please write at the top of the first page which Day Camp Location and Week(s) it is for. 

It is preferred that you mail a copy of these to our Cub Scout Day Camp Medical Officer no later than the Monday prior to the start of the week you are participating in at: Jason Dorval, PO Box 805, Chicopee, MA 01014

  • Submitting now will allow them to be reviewed prior to your arrival and speed up the Monday medical check in process. 

  • These medical forms will not be returned at the conclusion of camp, as state regulations now require camps to maintain these records.

These may also be faxed to (413) 562-1041, or dropped off/mailed to: Western Massachusetts Council, ATTN: Day Camp, 1 Arch Road - Suite 5, Westfield, Massachusetts 01085 (OR 141 North Street, Suite 101, Pittsfield, MA 01201), though it is recommended to bring another copy to camp just in case they are not received by the camp health officer.



Summer camp staff opportunity information can be found here.



Scouts are encouraged to "earn their own way," and the Western Massachusetts Council is prepared to help. Plan to participate in the fall Popcorn Fundraiser.

Special assistance is also available for qualifying families. Just complete the 2019 Campership Application (available below) and submit it to the Scout Service Center. Please submit Campership Applications by April 3, 2020. Applications may be accepted after this date, but will be subject to available campership funds remaining.



This was my first year sending my son to any type of camp. And I am very pleased with this day camp. I felt very comfortable leaving my son with the volunteers. I knew that he would be safe. And everyday he would tell me what he did. Usually I would get a I don't remember answer. The fact that he "remembered " what he did told me how much he liked going there.

My scouts were in separate groups with new people, they made new friendships, they were very happy, coming home every day singing the camp songs. Love that

He was more excited to get dropped off somewhere. He knew what was required of him and loved going to camp.

He has never been to camp and loved it.

Thank you for a great fun filled week!

Day Camp (as well as Resident Camp) is a wholesome opportunity to learn new skills, hone skills and, most important, to learn about one's ability to get along to go along (friend making). It's an opportunity to enable youth to realize more about their self/character in a fun setting.

Granby Cub Scout Day Camp. The most rewarding, challenging and exhausting week you’ll ever love. It’s amazing to see a team of volunteers come together to provide an awesome program to nearly 100 youth.

My Tiger and Webelo has so much fun at the Lenox camp! They were so excited to tell me what they did each day and went to bed early (without complaining!) every night so they would be ready in the morning. Great job to you and your staff for making it a great experience!



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

The goal for each camper is to "Do Your Best" in a safe atmosphere that allows youth 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 youth physically, mentally, emotionally, morally, socially, and spiritually.

To schedule a Camp Promotion for your Unit, contact our camp directors.

Every Scout deserves the opportunity of a week at camp!
