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...

From sunrise to sunset, Camp Kingsley’s waterfront bubbles with learning and excitement. Every day at camp, the waterfront educates its enthusiastic swimmers on the precautions necessary to safely enjoy a waterfront facility. Kingsley takes pride in selecting waterfront staff who are certified lifeguards or teaching assistants, all experienced in youth and aquatics education. Our aquatics staff has at its disposal a newly-renovated Aquatics Center equipped with eight lockable changing stalls, an indoor classroom, and a large foot-friendly dock system. Kingsley’s Aquatics Center is outfitted with at-the-ready emergency equipment, training floats, and The Blob. Our armada of 25 boats includes funyaks, paddleboats, canoes, single and tandem kayaks, and rowboats. Each day at camp, our imaginative aquatics staff utilizes our vast array of resources to deliver a curriculum that emphasizes modern aquatic safety practices while completing requirements for Cub Scouts’ advancement. The laughter of learning is what you’ll hear as you approach our waterfront because we strive for purposeful games that combine enjoyment and education.
