What is Boy Scout Day Camp?

Boy Scout Day Camp at Winnebago is a regular Boy Scout summer camp program for all Scouts. Camp runs Monday to Friday during all four weeks of summer camp.  See the camp schedule for this year's dates. Scouts can come one or more weeks, or they can come for selected days or half days. Just tell us when you want to come.  Bring your own lunch, or purchase meals in advance at the pre-camp orientation held at Winnebago.  You can also arrive early for breakfast or stay late for dinner, it is your choice. You provide your own transportation. Pay by the week, day or half-day.  Multi week discounts are available.  See the fee schedule for details.

Day Camp for Older Scouts

Day Camp for the older Scout focuses on merit badges, i.e. complete partials, work on advancement or just utilize program areas such as aquatics or shooting sports to hone your skills. If you are not yet First Class, you can work on advancement requirements from Tenderfoot to First Class. Older Scouts often come to Day Camp because they have evening activities or a job that doesn't let them stay overnight.  Coming for a full week or more is ideal, but you if you are just trying to finish up a merit badge partial, or want an afternoon of boating, you are welcome to come for a shorter period of time.

Day Camp for Younger Scouts

Day Camp for younger Scouts moving up from Webelos gives the Scout a positive initial experience with summer camp. Scouts participate in our Dan Beard program program which focuses on outdoor skills and appropriate advancement activities for the ranks leading up to First Class. The program includes basic swimming instruction, and age appropriate merit badges. Coming for a full week or more is ideal for first year Scouts.
