Cub Scout Camping

Cub Scout Camps are one of the best ways to get your Cubs excited about Scouting and ready for the adventures that await them as an older Scout. The Northeast Iowa Council and Camp Klaus have many camp options for Cub Scouts with various levels of outdoor activities. We offer three different options for Cub Scouts to enjoy camp ranging from a day out with mom and dad, or a full weekend of camping fun. Cub Scouts love Camp Klaus and it is the most fun they will have all summer! We have many opportunities for out of council units and Cub Scouts as well.

Please click on each tabs below to learn more and determine which Cub Camping option is best for you and your Scout. Then register to reserve your spot today!

Train in the ways of the Force! Local Padaway Day Camps are single-day adventures for all youth entering Kindergarten through 5th grade! From Jedi crafting and wookie games, water, to sharp shooting archery and bb guns, you will be kept busy the entire day!

Put your skills to the test against the Dark Side. These two-day, one-night themed adventures include an overnight camping experience for Scouts with parents or guardians at Camp C.S. Klaus. Choose your ideal Jedi training schedule. Maybe you’ll explore the geology of exploding volcanoes of Mustafar, design a beaded Alderaan art piece, create your own light saber, and learn how to survive on the planet Endor. Or perhaps you will become a Mandalorian sharp shooter at the archery and bb gun areas, identify and defeat enemies of the Republic in Ecology, climb to the top of Bespin at our climbing tower, or splash on the log roll on planet Kamino.

This session is open to registered Cub Scouts through 5th grade. For older campers (above 3rd grade), we recommend our Webelos Weekend. Scouts who attend Cub Overnight Camp must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or direct relative. Parents are allowed to bring more than one of their own children.

Will you accept the challenges of an Apprentice and train to become a Jedi? This three-day, two-night, themed adventure include an overnight camping experience for Webelos and their parents, guardians, or leaders at Camp C.S. Klaus.

Join us to channel the Force and avoid the Dark Side and become a Jedi Knight. Take control of your training by choosing your classes. Consider blasting your own spaceship, cracking codes, and developing your Force Senses. Or maybe create galactic art, engineer an imperial structure, and learn how to asses and treat blaster and lightsaber wounds. Of course, you’ll want to save some time for camp classics such as climbing, swimming, archery and bb guns!

This summer camp experience is only open to Webelos Scouts (youth going into 4th or 5th grade). Younger Scouts are encouraged to attend the Cub Overnight or Cub Day Camps. Packs must provide at least one leader for every four Scouts and must work with families to coordinate a youth to leader ratio in accordance with this policy at Webelos Camp. If this ratio is not met when arriving at camp, Scouts may have to be sent home.
