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 July 5th through Aug 12th 2016. 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.

Wolverine Join us this summer for a Superhero 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.
