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!
