TFC Cub Scout Winter Camping Policy - Cub Scout Winter Camping Policy
According to the Age-Appropriate Guidelines for Scouting Activities Chart in the Guide to Safe Scouting, Cub Scouts may not tent camp in the winter. National BSA has left it up to the each council to provide more specific guidance. The TFC Camping Committee has established the following Cub Scout Winter Camping Policy: Cub Scouts, including Webelos Scouts, may not tent camp from December 1st through March 1st of any calendar year. Furthermore, they may not tent camp outside of these dates when the ambient outside air temperature or wind-chill is forecast to be 35 degrees Fahrenheit or less. Cub Scout winter camping in heated quarters is authorized if Guide to Safe Scouting leadership requirements are met.
Tiger Cub Resident Camp Guidelines Announced!
The Outdoor Programs Committee at the February board meeting approved the following change to NCAP and Guide to Safe Scouting. This change takes effect immediately. As we reprint publications, the language will be changed. The change now allows Tiger Cubs to attend resident camp with their adult partner or guardian.
Family camp is a council-organized overnight or longer event for Tiger Cubs, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts and their families that involves more than one pack where the council provides the staffing and program. These events are often referred to as parent/pal, mom and me, or adventure weekends.
