Cub Scout Camping
Cub Scouting provides camping opportunities for Cub Scouts and their families. Each Fall, the Cherokee Area Council holds Cub and Partner weekends at its Skymont Scout Reservation on the Cumberland Plateau. During this event, Cub Scouts experience camping in the wilderness, hiking, archery, BB gun shooting, crafts, and many other outdoor activities.

Pack overnighters are events involving more than one family from a single pack, focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at council-approved locations. If siblings participate, the event must be structured accordingly to accommodate them. Adults giving leadership to a pack overnighter must complete Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO, No. 34162) and be present during the campout. BALOO trains participants to properly understand the importance of program intent, Youth Protection policies, health and safety, site selection, and sufficient adult participation. The council's list of BALOO approved camp sites is available here.
Webelos Den Overnight Camping
Webelos Scout overnighters introduce a boy and his parent to the basics of the Boy Scout camping program. These campouts are conducted under the leadership of a trained Webelos den leader and include two to six nights of camping.
Webelos dens are encouraged to have several overnight campouts each year. These campouts should be parent-son events, under the direction of the Webelos den leader. At the den overnight campouts, the Webelos den leader may be assisted by the assistant Webelos den leader and the Webelos den chief. Webelos den leaders should have completed Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders prior to leading an overnight campout.
Webelos Scout dens are encouraged to visit Boy Scout camporees. The purpose of this visit should be for the boys to look ahead with anticipation to their future as Boy Scouts. Webelos dens should not compete in activities designed for Boy Scouts and should not spend the night at events that are Boy Scout-based.
