Summer Camp

Summer Camp helps to develop character, introduce new friends, teach valuable life skills, and helps Cub Scouts discover new interests.

Summer Camp Patches and Awards

Alpine Pebble Patch

In addition to rank advancement, Cub Scouts will earn special Pebble Patches. Every Scout who attends Alpine will receive an octagonal patch unique to that year. Then during their stay at Cub World, additional pebble patches will be earned and can be purchased at the Trading Post for 75¢ each.

Outdoor Activity Award

Cub Scouts participating at Alpine have the opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. This special award is the only Cub Scout patch that may be worn on the pocket flap of the uniform shirt. This special award can only be earned by attending a Cub Scout summer camp.

What about siblings? They are welcome but must be Cub Scout-aged. The sibling program mimics the camp activities but isn't rank-achievement based. The sibling stays with pack/family at the campsite, during meals, etc., but during the program times attends their age-group program.
