Cub Scout Family Weekends


July 13-15, 2018

Deer Lake Scout Reservation

101 Paper Mill Rd, Killingworth, CT


Cub Scouts, share this exciting "Wild West" weekend with your whole family!  

Deer Lake Family Weekend is a theme related program conducted for the families of Lions, Tigers, Cub Scouts and Webelos.  Spend the day swimming, canoeing, hiking, kayaking, shooting BB guns and archery, playing sports, playing games, and doing crafts.  At the end of the day, gather around the campfire to be entertained by our Deer Lake cowpokes. A weekend at our beautiful Cub camping facility at Deer Lake is the perfect way for the family to enjoy a leisurely weekend in the out of doors. 


Families may attend on their own, with a group of families or with their den or pack.  Check-in begins at 6:00 PM on Friday and check-out is at 2:00 PM on Sunday.  All Saturday and Sunday meals are included.
