Safe Outdoor Fun
With professional staff and trained volunteers at the helm, our Day Camps include well-developed, age-appropriate programming that is safe and educational. Day camps are a great introduction to outdoor adventure for young Scouts without the worry of overnight camping. Day campers get to experience a little bit of summer camp and come home at night.
Eastside Metro Daycamp has a unique partnership with Stoneybrook Stable. Along with the regular cool activities that Cub Scouts get to participate in at day camp, they also get a wonderful introduction to horses. [...]
Day Camp Activities
Arts and crafts
Everything from woodworking to painting, each day Cub Scouts get to participate in fun, hands-on activities that get their creative juices flowing. Staff organize each activity and provide the supplies needed. Then, it’s up to the Scouts to get artistic.
One of the unique features of Day Camps is S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) focused activities that spark curiosity, encourage discovery and exploration in young Cub Scouts. From making slime to launching rockets, Scouts get experiential learning while immersed in nature.
Physical activity is a key part of our Day Camps, and at Camp Ireland, there is no better way to get that heart rate up than by running through an obstacle course. From rope bridges to tire towers, Cub Scouts at Camp Ireland will be challenged and thrilled with the fun of racing through our obstacle courses.
Lots of games
Giant Jenga anyone? We know young Scouts learn and engage best when they are having fun so we provide lots of games for them. From team focused games to puzzles, we offer a variety of activities that challenge the mind, enforce collaboration and good team play.
