Watchung Cub Scout Day Camp is one of two Cub Scout day camps for boys going into 2nd through 5th grade. The camp is nestled in the scenic 1,945 acre Watchung Reservation in Mountainside, NJ.  Watchung Cub Scout Day Camp has been providing a high quality camp program for over thirty five years. Bus transportation is provided from locations throughout Union, Somerset, SE Morris, Essex, and Middlesex counties.

Camp operates for six weeks from June 29th through Aug 7th 2015. The hours are Monday to Friday 8:45 am - 4:15 pm. Come for one or more weeks!  We offer an action packed day with lots of fun and some learning too. Watchung Cub Scout Day Camp stresses Scouting values and provides a fun and safe summer program for boys. Our experienced staff are all youth protection trained. We maintain a staff to boy ratio of 1:4 or better.

Saucer Blast off this summer for an Outer Space Adventure. Each week will focus on a different weekly adventure. We are continuing to improve your favorite programs and we will have a few new suprises too.

In addition to all of the summer fun, camp is a place where Cub Scouts can work on the new 2015 Cub advancement requirements. We also offer advancement opportunities for fifth graders electing to complete Arrow of Light under the old requirements.
