Adirondack Adventures at Read Scout Reservation

Cub Resident Camp is an awesome week of sleep-away adventure for Cubs and Webelos! What could be better than a week of canoeing, swimming, hiking, outdoor education and a host of other activities that Cub Scouts love? They live in two person, canvas wall tents on platforms, and eat excellent prepared meals in one of our dining facilities. Scouts come home with a greater appreciation of the outdoors, new friends, and a new sense of confidence in themselves.

Tigers, Wolf and Bear Cubs can now enjoy a “Buddy Camp” experience with a parent, either or the full week session, or a partial session! Scout and parent will bunk in the same tent and enjoy a ton of adventure together! Prices include all food and program items.

 The Curtis S. Read Scout Reservation is one of America's premier Scout Camps. This picturesque property is located north of Lake George, New York within the Adirondack Park. Read boasts excellent facilities and a staff that is dedicated to ensuring that each Scout
has the best possible week at camp. 

Activities Include:
Outdoor Skills
Nature Study
BB Range
