Day-Only Camp Option

Is your Scout not ready to spend the night time hours away from home? Then consider sending them to DAY-ONLY summer camp at CRE. They will get to experience summer camp program activities and advancement opportunities just like their Scouting friends without having to spend the night camping in a tent.

Day-only program is open to all Tigers (with adult partner), Wolf, Bear, Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts.

The program runs from 8:45am to 4pm and includes lunch served in the dining hall with the rest of the Scouts in camp.

Tiger (with adult partner), Wolf and Bear Day-only campers are welcome to stay for the evening closing campfire on either Tuesday or Friday depending on which session they are registered.

Webelos Day-only campers are welcome to stay Wednesday and participate in special evening Webelos activities and on Friday for the evening closing campfire.
