Camp Kingsley Cub Scout Summer Camp
CAMP KINGSLEY IS “THE COOLEST CAMP IN THE NORTHEAST” AND THE ULTIMATE CUB SCOUT ADVENTURE DESTINATION THIS SUMMER
Ask any Scout of any age about their fondest memories in Scouting and invariably the first thing mentioned will be Summer Camp.
Summer camp at Camp Kingsley is where Cub Scouts learn self-reliance, build character, and create friendships that last a lifetime. Signing up your child or unit for summer resident camp means that your Scout(s) will not miss out on an amazing experience where they learn crucial skills for a successful life.
Camp Kingsley, a residential summer camp for Scouts, located in the Mohawk Valley of New York, is home to over 150 sleep-away campers and more than 25 staff members from across Leatherstocking Council. Our Camp was founded in 1921 and continues to provide an exciting and enriching summer camp experience for Cub Scouts, ages 7-10.
Cub Scouts enjoy a fantastic variety of programs such as...
“The staff was incredible towards the scouts, and the facilities were great for my Bear Cub! I strongly recommend this camp for any Scout.”
– Jeromy D.

Camp Kingsley Safety
Camp Kingsley is dedicated to the safety of all its Scouts, Scout Leaders/Adults and staff. Our staff is working constantly to keep updated on the latest guidance from the CDC and local health departments to deliver the safest program possible. With multiple events done within this past year such as Fall Family Day and Blizzard Camp, we are confident and thoroughly experienced in successfully making a safe camp experience.
Some safeguards we plan on taking are...
All participants will be health screened and temperature checked on arrival.
- Scouts and Leaders/Adults will be divided into small cohort groups and stay with that group for the duration of the event.
- Meals will be provided with socially distanced seating.
- All campers and staff will socially distance with masks worn throughout the event.
- Hand sanitizer will be available in all areas.
- Program equipment and bathrooms will be sanitized between uses by staff and adults.
Please note that all the safeguards above are just a few examples of the measures we plan on taking this summer and that they are in constant flux as we stay updated on the latest guidance from the CDC, local health departments and our own health and safety staff.
