Cub Scout Spring Fling

April 7-9, 2017 – Bert Adams Scout Camp

Spring Fling is a wild weekend of fishing, shooting sports, hiking, games, bouldering, and much more for Cub Scouts and their families! Come for the weekend or just for the day on Saturday. Other activities include a night hike, sports, crafts, roasting marshmallows, and visiting with special guests. Activities on Saturday will begin and end with a campwide flag ceremony and you won’t want to miss our giant campfire in the lakefront amphitheater on Saturday night or the Spring Fling Eggstravaganza.

Your family can cook your own meals in your campsite or eat in our new, air-conditioned dining hall. You can also rent a camp tent, complete with your own built-in bed and power outlets! Flushing toilets and private showers are featured throughout the camp.
