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
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.
