MORTON – Cub Scout Adventure Camp, held each summer in the great outdoors, provides a unique learning experience cleverly disguised as fun and adventure. Volunteers coordinate several days-worth of activities at sites across the council to provide opportunities to join the fun activities. Every Cub Scout and Webelos that is registered in the W. D. Boyce Council is eligible to attend. Adventure Camp is a great way to begin experiencing the summer fun Scouting offers.

The Morton Adventure Camp is June 11-15 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Camp will be held at Kennel Lake – Kennel Lake Drive, Morton, IL 61550.
