Four Reasons To Attend Area Cub Scout Day Camps: Adventure Opportunities For More Children! READ ARTICLE - Aurora Beacon-News
NAPERVILLE, Illinois (March 1, 2017) – Three Fires Council Cub Scout Day Camps have expanded in 2017 and made changes to allow more area children to take advantage of the beneficial program it offers. Program additions were made for even more fun. / Day Camps are now open to siblings and friends – boys and girls. The age range for children is first grade (entering in the fall) through 10 years old. / Parents and Scout leaders no longer are required to attend; adults still are encouraged to come. However, more Scouting staff will be on hand to provide spectacular programs. / Extended Drop Off and Pick Up Options are now available. Campers can be dropped off as early as 7:00 a.m. and / or to stay as late as 6:00 p.m. for additional fees.
Interested children can attend camp at all Three Fires Council locations over the summer, from Aurora to Big Rock, Naperville to Medinah. Week-long Day Camps, Twilight Camps (late afternoon / early evening), and weekend overnight camps are available. Campers may also take advantage of program discounts for attending more than one day camp session, making Day Camps an inexpensive option to ensure a summer of adventure.
