IMPORTANT UPDATE (May 21, 2020)

In a special meeting held on May 21, 2020, the Board of the Laurel Highlands Council voted to suspend summer resident camping programs and volunteer led Cub Scout Day Camp programs for the 2020 season. The board also voted to authorize a virtual Cub Scout and Scouts, BSA program to be developed, for family camping at council facilities in June, for STEM Adventure Day Camp at Camp Guyasuta to continue operation, for a Cub Scout Day Camp program at Camp Guyasuta later in the summer, and for other organized programs to be developed once Pennsylvania guidance allows. As a week-long overnight program, NYLT will be cancelled for 2020.

Summer Camp FAQ

    2020 Space Exploration!

    Cub Scout Day Camp is three days of exciting fun, exciting program activities and adventure at a location close to home with no overnight stay. Day Camp is an introductory outdoor program for Tigers, Cub Scouts, and Webelos with little camping experience. Programs are run by BSA National Camp School trained volunteers and are inspected and accredited annually by the Laurel Highlands Council.

    Our 2020 summer theme, Space Exploration, will run throughout the daily program of challenge, adventure, creativity, and learning. Both daytime and evening "twilight" camp opportunities are available. Scouts, families, dens, and packs can attend any camp that fits their schedule provided they have the required adult leadership. They are also welcome to attend more than one day camp as each one is a little different.
