Deer Lake Summer Resident Camp 2014

Killingworth, CT (~1 hours drive from Wilton)
Fri, Jul 25 -> Sun, Jul 27 (2 nights stay)

Pack 22 encourage all to attend the Cub Scout Summer Resident Camp at Deer Lake in Killingworth, CT.  There are several sessions available at the camp (from mid July through mid August) but we have a critical mass of pack families interested in the July 25 - 27 session and so that is the one that we are going to officially support as a pack.  That is one of the "Family Weekend" sessions offered at Deer Lake and is open to any and all members of a family that has at least one cub scout.  All family members are welcome.  From what I understand, this session is also the one that Pack 17 are targeting so hopefully we will have a big Wilton turnout this year.

Deer Lake is a beautiful, farm-like facility about an hour's drive from Wilton specifically designed with the young camper in mind.  You will camp in comfortable open-sided lean-tos in private camping areas and enjoy shower blocks and a central dining hall.  So it's certainly not bare-bones camping by any means!  Quite comfortable actually, the perfect place for an introduction to the great outdoors for cub scouts.

Deer Lake isn't just about camping though, it's about doing things.  It's an especially great camp for rising Webelos (current Bears) and Webelos 1s since it offers the chance to complete several of the core Webelos requirements including Engineer and Outdoorsman.  Attending the camp will give your Webelos scout a real head start on their way to earning the Arrow of Light.  The camp isn't just for Webelos and Bears though, any cub scout can attend and enjoy the activities.  We have had Tigers and Wolves in attendance in previous years and they have had a great time.

Activities include:
  • Archery, BB Gun shooting
  • Sports
  • Swimming, boating, fishing, hiking (day/night)
  • Arts & crafts
  • Earning activity badges & belt loops
  • Campfires, skits, songs, fun & games
Every year there is an overarching theme for the camp and this time it's all about the Wild West.  So expect lots of costumes and cowboy fun!

Costs:

$160 for each cub scout
$60 for each adult or child 13 or over
$100 for each additional child (6-12 years old)
$30 for each additional child (4-5 years old)
No charge for children 3 and under

Be sure to check out the attached brochures and also this video that presents the camp:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4a-YoLN7Sw

If you are interested in attending then please reply to alan@alandavies.org.  I need to get applications in by the end of May and places do fill up so the sooner you apply the better.

Best
