CUB WORLD CAMPING UPDATE | February 25, 2021

We are currently planning for a traditional style resident summer camp for the summer of 2021. This would mean all meals in the Big Boy Pavilion and camping in the bunkrooms of the Fort or Castle or the Mountain Man Village or Miners Camp campsites set-up with our traditional canvas two-person tents. We are planning our summer program experience as we have in the past with a wide range of advancement opportunities coupled with our fun, exciting, and engaging camp staff. We plan to offer, as always, the best programs you have come to expect from Cub World Adventure Camp, including BB gun and archery shooting, nature hikes, creek exploration, fishing, swimming, and our famous campfire shows.

The Cub World Adventure Camp staff is also excited to launch some new enhancements to the program that will make your Scouts time at camp even more fun. Packs who come to Cub World summer camp will participate in the program together as a pack, while still getting the opportunity for Scouts of different ranks to learn rank-based skills. Summer camp in 2021 will also feature the return of Webelos Camp, a camp session built specifically for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. And maybe most exciting of all, we are building a new Bouldering Wall so Scouts can now climb at Cub World Adventure Camp. You and your Scouts are sure to leave camp with memories that last a lifetime. 

No one can predict if any COVID-19 restrictions may be in place come summertime. So, we continue to follow the most current CDC and Ohio Department of Health guidelines, and the best advice from experts in preparing to do everything possible to keep everyone in our camp safe this summer. Should the conditions this summer warrant, Cub World is prepared to take measures to ensure safety and sanitation for everyone at camp. Our current camp capacities allow for adequate spacing for camping, program activities, and dining. Plans are in place for single occupancy rooms or tents for camping and multiple shifts for meals in the dining pavilion if needed. With the experience gained from our summer programs in 2020 we are confident that Cub World can run a summer camp program in 2021 by following our sanitation protocols and social distancing procedures.

We also understand that many Scouting families are undecided about summer camp, waiting to see the speed of vaccine distribution. Other families are working to recover from the impact COVID-19 has had on their lives. Most of us are still faced with travel restrictions, social distancing, online everything, and mask-wearing. Because of all of this, some Scouting families will want to wait it out again this summer. But we also know and hear from others who are ready to begin experiencing a more normal set of activities. They are ready to get back in the outdoors, live normal lives again, see friends, and attend summer camp.

We are doing best to keep our summer camp planning as simple and flexible as possible. Units can make a camp registration to hold their place in camp for free.  Scouts can register for camp with their unit without making a deposit until May 1, 2021. Of course, Scouts who are registered and have paid their deposits by March 31, 2021 will receive the Free Slushie incentive. 

We have also updated our refund policy to allow for full refunds if changes need be made to a Scout’s registration. Full details on these policies can be found at www.danbeard.org/cubcamp. Campership applications are available now and will be accepted until April 30, 2021. 

Cub World Adventure Camp is excited to welcome Scouts back to summer camp in 2021, and we hope that you and your Scouts will join us. For more information and to find our summer camp resources, check out www.danbeard.org/cubcamp.

We are currently planning for a traditional style resident summer camp for the summer of 2021. This would mean all meals in our air-conditioned dining hall and campsites set-up with our traditional canvas two-person tents. We are planning our summer program experience as we have in the past with a wide range of advancement opportunities coupled with our fun, exciting, and engaging camp staff. We plan to offer, as always, the best programs you have come to expect from Camp Friedlander, including scuba & snorkeling, launching off the Blob, shooting sports, kayaking or sailing on the lake, swimming in the Olympic size pool, campfire shows, ice cream sundae bars, with excellent Ecology, Scoutcraft, and Trailblazer program areas. Brand new for 2021, Scouts can climb on the brand-new Iceberg feature. All offered with great meals; you are sure to be leaving camp with memories that will last a lifetime.
