CUB WORLD FACILITIES
Cub World is a unique destination for your group’s next event!
During the summer months, Cub World is home to the Cub Camp Adventures! program and provides a fun and memorable experience for thousands of Cub Scouts. For the rest of the year, the camp serves as a great meeting and camping place for Scout units and other groups, and hosts many exciting events and activities.
The Fort is an awe-inspiring structure from a distance and a portal to the imagination up close. This large wooden building is located near the main part of camp and can sleep 68 people. A deck wraps around the whole building on the second story. There are three large activity rooms that enter from the courtyard. Each activity room has several picnic tables, ceiling fans, electrical outlets, and lights. A large courtyard runs through the center of the Fort, complete with a flagpole. There are 13 rooms, some with eight bunk beds and some with four. Each room has windows, lighting, and electrical outlets. A single bathroom stall is near the entrance to the Fort (not available between October and March due to winterization). The two turrets on the top of the Fort are great places to hold an outdoor meeting or picnic. There are several tables on each as well as overhead lighting.
The Castle is located near the Activities Fields at Cub World. This large stone building sleeps 72 people. A deck wraps around the entire structure with two turrets in the front on the second story. A large courtyard runs through the center of the Castle. There are 14 sleeping rooms and two large activity rooms. A single bathroom is located near the entrance to the Castle (not available between October and March due to winterization). Some sleeping rooms have 8 bunk beds, some have 4 bunk beds. Each room has lighting, electrical outlets, and windows. Most rooms have at least one chair and several have writing desks.
MOUNTAIN MAN VILLAGE
The Mountain Man Village is a unique way to camp and perfect for those new to the outdoors. Six platforms, standing high in the air and built upon a wooded hillside, make for a shady and cool place to camp. Each platform holds six tents, making for a total capacity of 72 campers. At the bottom of the hillside is a large pavilion with electrical outlets and water. Across the road from the Mountain Man Village is a large shower house with full facilities.
The Miner’s Camp is the most primitive camping area of Cub World. Located at the end of camp and on the edge of Camp Friedlander, this wooded area can sleep 72 campers in 36 canvas tents. There is space available to bring your own tent. The mine is a great play place for the young ones, as is the gold-panning creek that runs through the area.
A large activity shelter is located in the middle of the Miner’s Camp. The shelter has lighting, several picnic tables, a water pump, and electrical outlets.
The Cub World Administration Building, or “Admin”, is located at the entrance to camp. This building houses a large meeting area, several offices, a first aid office, and three restrooms. It is also the lodging quarters of the Campmaster
during the off-season. The meeting area can hold up to 40 people with tables, more with just chairs. The building is heated and air-conditioned, has cable and high-speed internet access, and free Time-Warner digital phone long distance service.
FRISCH’S DINING PAVILION
The Frisch’s Dining Pavilion is located near the entrance of camp and is large enough to seat nearly any size group. Rows of picnic tables make for a great place to hold a large meal, ceremony, or special event. A kitchen area has refrigeration units and an ice maker, a sink, and serving lines. A gas or charcoal grill is available for rental. One of the highlights of Cub World is the Cub Scout Big Boy, lovingly referred to as “Francis.” He is one-of-a-kind and stands just outside the dining pavilion to welcome Scouts of all ages.
A sand volleyball court is located near the entrance to camp and makes for great team competitions. There is also a basketball court with an adjustable goal. An amphitheater, adjacent to the Dining Pavilion, is ideal for ceremonies and special events. Benches can seat nearly 400 people and a large fire ring is great for campfires.
The Director’s Cabin is secluded from the other sleeping areas of camp. This two-sided cabin can sleep four on each side. Each side has a private restroom and shower. The cabin is heated and air-conditioned. The inside of the cabin is comfortable for a family or small group. There is a queen-size bed, two bunk beds, a kitchenette with refrigerator and stove-top, a dresser and closet, and cable and high-speed internet access.
Cabins are available for rental and are heated for winter camping. A shower house is located nearby and the Dining Pavilion and Administration Building are a short walk away. There are four cabins. Cabins have four bunk beds, two wardrobes, and a writing desk on each side. Each cabin has two sides.
There are three shower houses located throughout the camp and close to each sleeping area. Each shower house has four individual adult stalls containing a shower, sink, and commode, and a youth side with multiple showers, commodes, and sinks. Please note, only one shower house is open for use during between October and March due to winterization.
