District camps are an excellent opportunity for families to engage in a variety of activities and create memories that last a lifetime. These camps offer numerous programs, including shooting sports, crafts, games, woodworking activities, and socializing with new friends.
Cub Scout Day Camps are facilitated by local councils and individuals who serve as camp director, program director or staff adviser must be nationally certified by taking the National Camping School Day Camp Administration section.
To be nationally certified as a day camp director, program director or staff adviser, individuals must complete a three-part training curriculum. This includes an online course, a council-led in person training session and then a day and a half at a National Camping School. This three-part curriculum, combined with the required pre-requisites listed below, will enable individuals to serve in a leadership role at their day camp.
